Happy Birthday Champ! Complex's 20 Favorite Mike Tyson Rap References

17. Spoonie Gee, "Mighty Mike Tyson" (1987)

LYRIC: "He don't float like a butterfly or sting like a bee/But he's the hardest damn puncher you'll ever see."
COMPLEX SAYS: By 1987, Tyson had 29 wins; 27 by KO. In one of the earliest Tyson hip-hop references, the Godfather of Rap pays to tribute the youngest heavyweight champion in boxing history. Salute from one legend to another? Yes, yes y'all.
