The Best Songs of 2013 (So Far)

47. Problem f/ Bad Lucc "Like Whaaat"

Album: The Separation
Producer: League of Starz
Label: Diamond Lane Music Group

Someone was bound to make this work. Young Bleed's "How You do That" was a big enough single back in '97 for the Baton Rouge MC to garner the attention of Master P's No Limit empire and, ultimately, drop a gold album before leaving the label. The song's Happy Perez and KLC-produced beat has inspired quite a few remakes in the past couple years, from King Louie's "Full of Dat Weed" to Kool John's "Full of Dat Weed" from earlier this year. But only one could revive the song and turn it into a hit, which is just what Problem did with "Like Whaaat," a contemporary, thumping re-imagining of the familiar track. —David Drake
