Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

40. Terror Squad "Lean Back" (2004)

Album: True Story
Producer: Scott Storch
Label: Universal Records

In recent years, Fat Joe has become one of rap's biggest charity cases, a guy who shamelessly hops from one collaborator to another in search of the sound of the moment that will keep him on the radio. Whether it was R. Kelly, or Ashanti, or Nelly, or Lil' Wayne, or Chris Brown that was hot at the moment, he got them on the hook and kept his spins up. There was, however, one shining moment in which Fat Joe's barking delivery and unapologetic Bronx attitude made for a classic radio hook with no added starpower required. It was a perfect song for doing that half-assed lean to, but it also worked if you actually felt like dancing.
