18. French Montana f/ Drake, Rick Ross & Lil Wayne "Pop That" (2012)
Looped over and over is a sample of Uncle Luke's "I Wanna Rock (Doo Doo Brown)" throughout French Montana's "Pop That." The tribute is appropriate. Sure, nowadays, French and Rick Ross make reference to popping other things—like Molly—but herein is a much more back-to-basics approach: "What you twerking with?" Drake asks. You know the answer, and if you don't, the 808s banging on this certified-gold track, which features appearances from Ross, Drake and Lil Wayne, are sure to help. It goes so hard that it yielded a twerking renaissance in 2012. It's gangster-sex braggadocio topped with Wayne's de rigueur lyrics about the female anatomy, one that might seem typical enough, until it emerges as an irresistibly addictive pattern five minutes later, one that begs for repeat play after repeat play.
