In the Can – The Best Sprite Raps Before Drake’s

Hip-hop has a longstanding relationship with Sprite. What, you thought that Drake was the first rapper to “obey his thirst?” Wrong! The clear soda brand has been in the rap business since 1986, fool. Word to Kurtis Blow. With Drizzy landing a hi-tech Super Bowl spot, compiled a list of all the Sprite raps that came before. Drink responsibly.

Kurtis Blow – “Sorry 7-Up,” but Sprite is obviously Kurtis’ beverage of choice after a long game of basketball.

Kris Kross – “Drink up, drink up is what you gotta do/’Cause I like the Sprite in you.”

KRS-One & MC Shan – The Boogie Down and Queenbridge reps reignite their classic battle for the love of that green…drink, that is.

    I kinda miss Kriss Kross. Yeah, I said it.

    Either way, it doesn’t matter – NaS & AZ win hands-down.

    • Lowedwn

      definitely co-signing both of those sentiments, the Nas & AZ joint was always a fovorite

      • The $ykotic Don Mac

        + 1

        Why XXL didn’t put Drake in the competition…y’all scared to have/see the youngin take an L…


    I agree with Pierzy and Lowedwn Nas & AZ had the best Sprite commercial hands down

  • Worley

    Nas and AZ for sure.

    Now let’s start the real trivia. Nas and AZ rhyming on the steps is based on which group doing the same thing in which movie?

    Pierzy, Tony Grands and $ykotic I know y’all know. Let the youngens have a go at it.
