Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

21. Hurricane Chris "Ay Bay Bay" (2007)

Album: 51/50 Ratchet
Producer: Phunk Dawg
Label: J

Hip-hop history is full of raps written to praise or shout out a DJ. But given that "Ay Bay Bay" reached far beyond the Louisiana turf of radio host Hollyhood Bay Bay, Hurricane Chris eventually found himself constantly explaining that he was not simply saying an exaggerated variation of "hey baby" on his breakout hit (it didn't help that a very young child chimes in on the chorus with Chris). The real Hollyhood Bay Bay enjoyed the boost in visibility from the song, and a few months ago even signed on as the newest member of Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group. Hurricane Chris, though, hasn't been heard from too much since he stopped shouting "Ay Bay Bay."
