The 50 Best Video Game References In Hip-Hop

41. Mos Def, "Mathematics" (1999)

Lyric: "Crack mothers, crack babies, and AIDS patients / Youngbloods can't spell but they could rock you in PlayStation"

It's the mighty Mos Def (style fresh like baby breath), distilling urban blight and the failed education system into one concise and shocking rhyme. The larger song does it as well, but there's something about this line that always kinda made the hair on our arms stand up.
