The 25 Best Posse Cuts in Rap History

8. Heltah Skeltah f/ O.G.C. "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka" (1996)

Producer: Baby Paul
Album: Nocturnal
Label: Duck Down, Priority

No, we don't know what Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka means because it doesn't actually mean anything. Probably one of the most unlikely hits of the '90s, "Leflaur Leflah Eshkoshka" took on a life of its own. For one, it gave underground act Heltah Skeltah a legitimate Billboard hit, which no one really saw coming. It also inspired this unlikely cast of characters to come together as a group known as The Fab 5. However, according to Sean Price, they were never meant to be a group, and in the end, they never managed to release an album. Price later recalled the song's lasting impact (and the forgotten Fab 5 album) on the cut "Mess You Made," rhyming, "The Fab 5 album got put on the shelf/But they still play 'Leflah' on the throwback at 12." —Insanul Ahmed
