The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

42. Too $hort "Blowjob Betty" (1986)

Album: Raw, Uncut, and X-Rated
Producer: Dean Hodges
Label: 75 Girls

Too $hort has been raising eyebrows with his lyrical content since the first Reagan administration. "Blow Job Betty," off 1986's appropriately titled Raw, Uncut & X-Rated EP is the story of his relationship with a girl (the aforementioned Betty, naturally) whose enthusiasm for giving oral sex actually matches his drive to receive it. The two tumble into a series of escapades that ends in an orgasm that somehow kills her. It's a tall tale with a flagrant disregard for science as well as decency, but well-enough became a major piece of the very bedrock West Coast rap was built on.
