Can anyone ID this phrase in a rap song? It's always puzzled me.

It's at 1:06 in this video of the Funkdoobiest song "Who Ra Ra." I believe the first part is "My mom said 'Boy you're a _________'" and I can't figure out what the phrase is. It's always driven me nuts, and I have never seen a complete set of lyrics for this song. The video is NSFW, just FYI.

Turkish Hip-Hop Translation: Roadside Picnic

I recently interviewed a Turkish band who introduced me to the group 'Roadside Picnic', who make fantastic, alluring left-field hip-hop. I've been hopelessly hooked on this live version of what I presume is a new song from the duo. It's titled "Bir Ustamızın Havası", and I'd love to know what the song is talking about. [more inside]

Rap song on bandcamp with Vanilla Ice sample - Alright stop

Longest of long shots but does anybody recall hearing a rap/hiphop song on bandcamp with a Vanilla Ice sample? The beat may have had a bit of the "under pressure" bass line and some hand claps. About 3 times through the song they'd throw the vanilla ice sample in from "Ice Ice Baby" and right when the sample said ".....alright stop" the beat would cut out for a few seconds and then start back up.

Need hip hop/rap/pop songs or gangster references about $ or new shoes!

It may sound silly, but I regularly pay a personal trainer via paypal and I like to have witty subject lines instead of the typical 'you've got money!' [more inside]

I never thought I'd be on a boat (made of money)!

Can you help me find this hip-hop song, and/or the nerdy online article that analyzed part of it? Theme: so many stacks of money that you could lay on them, like a bed [more inside]

What is this abstract hip hop tune?

ObscureLyricsFilter: Help me identify this tune of the 'Backpacker Hip Hop' variety. All I can remember is it sounds like Deep Puddle Dynamics or CloudDead and has a line which sounds something like "I know how hard it is to be you, you're all magnanimous and stuff..." [more inside]

everybody go, hotel motel holiday inn

Boogie to the boogie say up jump the boogie to the bang bang boogie! What songs use this lyric (or some clear variation of it?) I'm pretty sure it originates from Sugarhill Gang's 'Rapper's Delight'. At the very least this song popularized it. And it appears in, for example, Kid Rock's 'Bawitdaba', Will Smith's 'Freakin it', and 311's 'Welcome' So what other songs make some use of this classic hip-hop lyric??? [more inside]

Cool Christmas Gifts for 10-year-olds

Christmas is coming up and I want to be a cool parent to my 10 year old. She wants to listen to, what I can best describe, hip-hop. Not really rap, but stuff that has a beat (she liked Black Eyed Peas "let's get it started in here"). Her current problem is I am uncool. I didn't let her watch Mean Girls—all the other kids got to. I don't let her listen to the local "cool" radio station—mainly because of the language and DJs. So any suggestions on what could keep a kid cool but let me feel like she's getting music of some quality? I don't have to like the music, but I don't want anything with questionable lyrics. Answers that accuse me of censorship will be ignored. When she wants to save her own money up and buy a CD she can, but I'm buying these.
