Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

32. D4L "Laffy Taffy" (2005)

Album: Down for Life
Producer: Cory Way, Broderick Thompson Smith, Richard Sims
Label: WEA

If anyone had the potential to log multiple entries on this list but instead didn't manage to keep the hits coming, it's Fabo. The breakout star of D4L, at least until Shawty Lo went solo a couple years later, Fabo had an outrageous ear for hooks, and pretty much singlehandedly holds down every part of "Laffy Taffy" that made it a hit. Unfortunately, Fabo's run didn't go much further than that, and D4L have gone down as one hit wonders, when they had the potential to do more. Sure, it's a silly song, and perhaps deserves to serve as the dictionary definition of ringtone rap, but you could do much worse as a signature song for that subgenre.
