Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

25. Ludacris f/ Shawnna "What's Your Fantasy?" (2000)

Album: Back for the First Time
Producer: Bangladesh
Label: Disturbing tha Peace/Def Jam

When Ludacris and Shawnna go back and forth on the "What's Your Fantasy?" hook, they literally just take turns reciting the same refrain, first him and then her, with no call-and-response interaction or even gender pronouns to reverse (although hey, this way everybody gets licked from their head to their toes). And it works wonderfully, because they both have different, equally fantastic ways of ripping into the track's unique cadence, which leaves empty space between some words while aggressively stuttering others: "And I wanna...move...from the bed/Down-to-the down-to-the-to-the floor." No wonder Luda drafted Shawnna for a similarly structured hook on 2003's "Stand Up."
