5. Chingy "Right Thurr" (2003)
Producer: The Trak Starz
Label: Capitol/Disturbing Tha Peace
Chingy is by far the most forgotten MC in recent rap history who went multi-platinum less than a decade ago—he never had the staying power of his St. Louis pop rap predecessor Nelly, and only had a couple more hits than later flash in the pan acts like Huey and Jibbs. But when any of those big hits from Jackpot come on, particular the first, “Right Thurr,” it’s easy to remember why that guy moved units. Sure, he sounded like a squeak toy, but the way lines like “Switch your hips when you’re walkin’, let down your hurr (hair)” pivot around triplet accents was just some killer hook writing.
