The 50 Best Storytelling Rap Songs

47. UGK "Pocket Full of Stones (Port Arthur Remix)" (2002)

Album: Side Hustles
Producer: Pimp C
Label: Jive

"Pocket Full of Stones (Remix)" from the Menace II Society soundtrack is Bun B and Pimp C telling stories about doing anything in your means to get by. The titular "pocket full of stones" refers to crack rocks, which Bun and Pimp start selling to always-thirsty fiends faster than they can re-up. Business gets good fast, and the duo go from slinging the product on corners by themselves to a complex and booming drug operation. But everything crumbles in the last verse when Bun loses control, kills a police officer, and serves his time on the murder charge just to find himself back out on the streets at square one.
