Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

39. Rick Ross f/ Styles P "BMF" (2010)

Album: Teflon Don
Producer: Lex Luger
Label: Maybach/Slip-n-Slide/Def Jam

In an era where any hit song can spin off dozens, if not hundreds of remixes and parodies, having a chorus that's easily adaptable to word substitutions can have a huge impact on a track's viral potential. In that sense, "B.M.F." is like the "Call Me Maybe" of rap: as soon as you've heard "I think I'm Big Meech, Larry Hoover," your mind has already started wandering to increasingly goofy variations like "I think I'm big Screech, Lisa Turtle." Even if the track hadn't been the mainstream breakthrough for Lex Luger's highly influential production style, we would've gotten a mountain of freestyles over that beat just for the endless comedy potential of the hook.
