8. Akinyele "Put It In Your Mouth" (1996)
Album: Put It In Your Mouth
Producer: Chris Forte
Label: Stress, Zoo, BMG
Some dudes can get away with saying anything to women and they'd just laugh-while another cat could say the same funky stuff and he'd be facing sexual harassment charges. Well, let us just say that Akinyele falls into the former category. How else to explain lines like "I'll be like Herbie and hand you a cock"? Along with Ak's rough rhymes, Crystal Johnson's spunky vocals are a big part of the reason this track works. Perhaps it's because this guitar-strumming Chris Forte–produced jam was so catchy, but back in the day it wasn't unusual to hear a club full of chicks screaming, "...in your motherfucking mouth!" as though it were a manifesto of sexual liberation.
