The transition from hip-hop maestro to rap artist is a tough one, and not everyone can master it. But when it comes to getting down on the mic, some beatsmiths just have the gift of gab. With Kanye West making the successful leap from soulful in-house producer to one of the game’s most respected (and controversial) voices on the mic, XXL felt it only right to count down the best 10 producers turned rappers of all time in the October 2010 issue, which is on stands now.
Coming in at No. 8 is Mannie Fresh, who entertained fans with his over the top and witty lyrics. Be sure to pick up the October issue to get the full write up on the former Cash Money soldier and how he earned his spot. But for now, here’s Mannie Fresh’s 5 funniest lines.
Mannie Fresh’s “Chubby Boy”
“I got a brand-new Benz, and it’s Heineken green/In the front, license plate read ‘Pussy Machine’/The most beautifulest thing, shortie, you’ve ever seen.”
Mannie Fresh’s “Day in the Life (Cadillac Doors)”
“That sign say McDonalds, not McKims/Actin’ like you’re shy, with them dirty-ass Timbs.”
Big Tymers’ “Sunday Night”
“You heard where he live at? Piranhas and iguanas, marble and glass/The bottom of his swimmin’ pool said ‘Kiss my ass.’”
Big Tymers’ “Gimme Some”
“Now I’ve been holding in, and you’ve been holding out/So why don’t you be a nice girl and put it in yo’ mouth.”
Big Tymers’ “Still Fly”
“Have you ever seen crocodile seats in the truck?/Turn around, sit it down, and let ’em bite your butt.”
