Fight Music

The thief’s theme, play me at night they won’t act right.” -Nas “The World Is Yours,” Illmatic.

I’m a lyrical extremist when it comes to rap. I just love when MCs go off just for the sake of rhyming and say slick stuff. That’s what I look for as a fan. If you aren’t lyrical, you better compensate with some dope concepts, flows, a distinctive voice, something.

But as much as I love lyrics and cadences, nothing gets me going like a dope beat, especially a hard-hitting one. I’m talking about them tracks that will make you wanna punch somebody in the face for no reason, them tracks that bump so much it’s impossible to stand still.

I’m not the confrontational type. I’d rather talk to girls then mean mug some dude when I’m out. But if I ever get into a heated argument, there are a few tracks that would undoubtedly make me throw the first punch. Here are a few. PS: Don’t try this at home, the streets, the clubs, just don’t try it.

M.O.P. “Ante Up”: I never graduated to stick up kid status. When it comes to theft, my career never went past minor shoplifting, a coke bottle here, some upper deck cards there. But this D.R. Period track complete with Lil Fame and Billy Danze’s aggressive deliveries really makes me wanna act out the lyrics.

ODB “Brooklyn Zoo”: DO NOT play this song in any type of function if I’m present. I might lose it. I may just start poking dudes with BIC pens or something. Actually, the same can be said for a good portion of Wu-Tang’s catalog.

De La Soul ft. MF Doom “Rock Co. Kane Flow”: Don’t sleep on De La. Word is dudes used to beat people up on tour. Jake One must have had that in mind when he cooked up the track.

Nas “Thief’s Theme”: See “Ante Up.” This is straight up ski mask music.

Jay-Z “You Don’t Know”: Just Blaze is always good for a head nodder. This is arguably my favorite track off Blueprint.

Ok, so I got five, what do you guys got. I just noticed that I didn’t even include a Premo beat. Shame on me. Anyhow, take it away. What tracks will make you wanna connect everytime the snare hits?

      Early 90s Death Row (especially Snoop & Kurupt) makes you wanna wild out…

    • BGZ

      NBK, a classic head nodder!!!
      Snoop Dogg – “Deep Cover”, “Murder Was the Case” and “2 of America’s Most Wanted”; not fight music, but real West Coast “music to driveby” along with obvious choices like “Hit em Up” to Mac Dre and music produced by DJ Muggs; or early Geto Boys, UGK and Three 6.

      In the East Coast, from boom-bap like “Mama Said Knock You Out” and the Beastie Boys’ “Sabotage”; to “Ruff Ryder’s Anthem”, “Party Up”, “Made You Look”, “Triumph”, “Protect Ya Neck (The Jump Off)” come to mind and anything from Onyx; or shit the Neptunes did for NORE and The Clipse.
      Also, there’s guilty pleasure, like Dip Set’s “Crunk Muzik”, “Santana’s Town” or “Lean Back” and “Holla, Holla”.

      WTF happened to Just Blaze?
      “Flipside”, “Roc the Mic” or “Pump It Up” were the best of the kind.

    you don’t have a fight music blog without onyx.

    where’s the ice cube?!?! nwa at least.

    mop is the original fight music. you want a jay-z appearance that’ll make you wanna go to war? try “4 alarm blaze”. not only is the posse mashing out, but jay-z’s “what the fuuuuuuuuck” to start his verse tells you all you need to know. sounds like sosa about to send the wolves after tony. i told you a long time ago…

    david banner be havin a nigga ready to bomb the state house.

    pastor troy makes me angry at the sun.

    petey pablo “raise up” ain’t even an angry song, but it makes me wanna become a gang leader.

    that de la/doom track never made me wanna hurt a fly. de la don’t got nothin confrontational. “stakes is high” is de la at their most pissed and it’s still pretty diplomatic.

    you want REAL fight music, listen to dancehall reggae. nobody in the world tough talk like them hungry jamaicans.

  • The Zimbabwean Connection

    Mix nignorance, liquor + any Lil Jon, Eastside Boyz, Lil Scrappy joint and you got the perfect combination for a fight/thuggery.

    Examples include Throw It Up, Head Bussa and the favoured goon classic – “What You Gonna Do”; nothin can/will defuse a tense situation like soo when/if the stars align like such.

    Heavy bass + repeated chants replicates the build-up atmosphere for someone about to be KO’d! …. It just don’t get any realer than that

  • latino heat

    the comment above said pretty much everything i was about to say. except he forgot Knuck If You Buck, by Crime Mob.
