Why So Serious? – Best Hip-Hop Spoofs

Some people take this rap shit way too personal. Getting their panties all in a bunch over nothing. Relax, my dude, have some fun. In fact, the comic genius that is Chris Rock inspired me to concoct just the right remedy for you mad rappers and bitter bloggers alike after I peeped his spoof of Andre 3000’s “Hey Ya” this morning.

It’s always good when we can get laugh at the expenses of hip-hop. No harm, no foul, just good clean fun. Here are some rap-related spoofs/skits that’s make you forget about how crappy life has been for you in the last decade the bullshit. —Rondell Conway

    • Justice4All

      Never thought hip hop would take it this far-

  • El Tico Loco

    Chris Rock got it on the strenght of CB4, but where is Bobby Jimmy BKA Russ Parr?(the same one from the radio) No face? Thirstin Howl III? Colin Quinn going back to Bklyn?

      I thought I was the only one left on the planet who remembers and enjoyed No Face. I LOVE comedy in rap! There’s nothing wrong with that. From Arsenio Hall’s “Chunky A” to the early Jazzy Jeff/Fresh Prince songs, I never thought of it as being out of place in Hip-Hop.

      • Lowedwn

        co-sign on Jazzy & Prince.

        “I think I can beat Mike Tyson” and “You saw my Blinker Bitch” still get run to this day.

        Aye does anyone remember the episode of In Living Color when Marlon parodies Shabba Ranks ” Mr. Loverman” with “Mr. Ugly Man”? Now that’s classic.

    It’s easy to tell if I’m going to be cool with someone just by asking them who the five best rappers in the world are…think about it.

    1. Dylan 2. Dylan 3. Dylan 4. Dylan 5. Dylan

    • latino heat

      @ El TIco

      hell yeah i remember the Lyricist Lounge Show! i still have a few of them on VHS (Google it) somewhere. that show was my shit!

      do ya’ll remember Station Zero though? it debuted on MTV around the same time as Lyricist Lounge Show. it was a cartoon with one of the hosts being “jiggy” and the other host holding down “real hip hop”. i tried to Google, Station Zero a while back and couldn’t find any info on it. it was a great show though and both shows should be released on dvd.
