The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

26. Digital Underground "Freaks of The Industry" (1990)

Album: Sex Packets
Producer: Digital Underground
Label: Tommy Boy

Digital Underground's 1990 debut album Sex Packets is a tour de force of lighthearted lyricism powered by the slick funk of Shock G and friends. Its third single, "Freaks of the Industry," is a raunchy ode to sex with groupies that tells you more than ever wanted to know, probably, about what it's like to go backstage at a Digital Underground concert. The most memorable moment is the multiple-choice pop quiz in the second verse wherein Shock G asks what you would do if the sex you're having in the room next to where you're friends are hanging out gets too loud. (Answer: sound-proof the room by sticking a rolled-up a towel underneath the door.)
