Hookin’ Off On ‘Em

“Flashback Memories/two shots of Hennessy/street life etiquette, real niggas blend with me/I’m talking ‘bout ten a key/ Baltimore, Tennessee/I ain’t got to tell you how long I been a G.”

That’s the hook on the newly leaked Raekwon banger “Flashback Memories” featuring The Game. Now the lyrics are dope, both MCs go extra hard detailing their days scrambling in the streets. You know Rae is gonna give you that vivid HD vision verse and Game puts the rapper name checks on hold and pushes his skills into a new light. But it’s the hook that caught me after one listen. It actually goes with the song. They are reminiscing and flowing perfectly to the groove of a neo-80s TV cop drama show (I don’t know, that’s just what comes to mind for me, eh.).

It got me thinking about “what are the dopest hooks of all-time?” Not just the make you go crazy at the club joints like Soulja Boy’s “Turn My Swagg On”, but I’m talking about Nas’ “I Gave You Power” hook. Something that defines the rhyme, helps tell the story and catches your ear with melody and slickness.

I know Ja Rule, Nate Dogg and T-Pain are all mentioned when the singy type hooks come into play and they are great at what they do, but I want to know your all time favorite hook (or some dope ones that jump out at you) that speak to the verses at hand and that’s rapped. If you want extra credit then you can try and choose the dopest DJ Premier cut up hook or some singing shit, but it’s not mandatory.

Hit me with the hooks, but not you Shaq and Rza…y’all said that you didn’t need them. -DT

      Absolutely. C.R.E.A.M & Ice Cream.
      Gin & Juice is in my top 5.

      Oh, and Aquemini.
      “Even the sun goes down, heroes eventually die/horoscopes often lie/and sometimes why/nothing is for sure, nothing is for certain/nothing lasts forever, but, untill they close the curtain/it’s him and I/Aquemini”.

      My favorite Premier hook is prolly Full Clip. I dunno though. I pretty much like anything Preemo has ever touched(pause).

    Wow…great question. “I Gave You Power” is definitely up there.

    “Training Day” The LOX
    “Who Did You Expect” The LOX
    “18th Letter” by Rakim
    “What’s Beef” and “Niggas Bleed” by B.I.G.

    But the two I would put up there are:

    “Doe or Die” (Remix) by Raekwon & AZ -

    “Yo, yo I roll wit brothers who puff dust lust plus/A + conniving cash you can’t trust/Yo, these avalanche rock throwers, granola holders/Style is steady ready like a military soldier/Wu Killa Bee plus Sosa, AZ/Two SC’s, Doe or die style, let’s see/Yo, the track’s banging like an armaretta shake son/Take some, 50 on whatever we make son”

    and “A Week Ago” by Jay-Z & Too $hort –

    “It was cool when you had hella weed to smoke/And you bought a new home where you could keep the folks/I don’t see how this side of you could be provoked/It was all good just a week ago/Funny what, seven days can change/A stand up nigga, now you sit down to aim/Used to have a firm grip now you droppin names/It was all good just a week ago…”

      • DV8

        isnt it weird Jay talks about too much West Coast dick riding on the same album he samples a west coast nigga? then he also samples Nas. The saying is true. Hate is Love.

  • Young History in the Making

    Jay-Z’s “this cant be life” hook was dope..it kinda fit the melody of the beat..definately fit with the lyrics….only one i can think of off top right now..

  • Terrell A Evans

    Mobb Deep has many classic hooks. Of course “Shook Ones pt.2″ “Hell On Earth” “It’s Mines”. Too many to name.

  • eff yo couch

    I’l always loved this hook and believe it not it’s from the gimmick one hit wonder Kriss Kross

    “Well nigga roll me a mic and let me smoke it til’ I’m high if you ever seen me rock than you know that I- live and die for the things I do slang I use breakin’ down mics and destroyin’ crews”

    C.R.E.A.M is the correct answer.

  • Shelliano

    You gotta say C.R.E.A.M first… that was such a classic hook, and fit EXACTLY what the Wu was talking about…

    other favorites:

    Biggie: Hypnotize- Who the hell DOESN’T know this hook (or the ad-libs that start it?)

    Juicy- “You know very well…”

    Unbelievable- “Biggie Smalls is the Illest” sometimes the simplest shit makes the biggest impact, none moreso that that R.Kelly sample and Premo scratching bigs declaration of being the illest.

    Outkast- Elevators- “Me and You, yo mama and you cousin, too…” That shit was a classic hook…

    Goodie Mob- Cell Therapy- “Who’s that peeping in my window???? Blouwwww!!! Nobody Now”

    Styles P ft Pharoahe Monch- My Life- “My life is all I had/ My rhymes, my pen, my pad…” that shit is so real, and rings true even now.

    Redman & Method Man- How High- “How high? So high that I can kiss the sky/ How sick? so sick that you can suck my…..” Says it all..

    As soon as I read this, I automatically thought C.R.E.A.M. and was pretty surprised at the similar responses in the comments section…

    Also, there is something about Liquid Swords…maybe not the greatest, but shit, it bumps so well

    BUT, If we’re gonna talk about the best anthem, I gotta go with…

    THE WHAT – B.I.G. AND METH
    definitely in my opinion, the G.O.A.T. of anthems, and the best B.I.G. collabo ever

    RUNNER-UPS:

    - Life’s a Bitch – AZ got put on the map after this one

    - Award Tour – atcq

    - Put ya hands where my eyes can see – Bussa bus

  • oskamadison

    I can think of mad joints but these are a few that come to mind:
    Of course, “C.R.E.A.M”. Let’s get that one out the way.
    Nas-”Shootouts”, “I Gave You Power” and “The World is Yours” (Pete Rock killed those cuts.)
    Large Professor-”I don’t wanna ill, I just wanna chill/And keep my hand around a hundred dollar bill”. Simple as hell and to the point.
    Mobb Deep-”Eye For an Eye”. Mobb might have a legitimate claim as hook kings. On an album full of dope hooks, this was the standout.
    Tragedy-”True Confessions”. This one might be a little obscure for some of yall but all my ’97 Clue tape fiends understand. ‘Ol girl flipped some Luther Vandross shit like the forgotten member of the Cold Crush Brothers.
    The Beatnuts-”Psycho Dwarf”. “I wanna fuck, drink beer and smoke some shit!!”. ‘Nuff said.
    Once again, The ‘Nuts-”Find That”-”If you owe me money, better find that shit/’Cause niggas is dyin’ quick behind that shit”. In today’s economy, who ain’t feelin’ that?
    Gang Starr-”Just To Get a Rep”. I swear, you could write a joint about smashin’ a martian chick in a ’77 Pinto in a Church’s Chicken parking lot and Premo will find something to cut for the hook.

  • Rashad

    DMX- Let Me Fly

    HANDS DOWN…

    “so much on my mind i just can’t recline / blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine / breath in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine / breath out, weed smoke retrace the skyline / heard the bass ride out like an ancient mating call / i can’t take it y’all, i can feel the city breathin / chest heavin against the flesh of the evenin / sigh before we die like the last train leavin”
