Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

24. Three 6 Mafia "Sippin' on Some Syrup" (2000)

Album: When the Smoke Clears:Sixty 6,Sixty 1
Producer: DJ Paul, Juicy J
Label: Loud

Pretty much everybody in Three 6 Mafia's extended family of members and collaborators has a deeply distinctive voice, but there's perhaps nobody in Hypnotize Minds who sounds less like anybody else in the world than Project Pat. The droning, creeping beat, and the appropriate guest spot from Texas legends UGK, half of whom would sadly later die from sippin' on too much syrup, were a big part of why "Sippin'" was a regional anthem. But that odd, hiccupping cadence from Juicy J's older brother was the trippy little finishing touch that makes it a classic.
