What is the name of this song?

I heard a 30 second snippet of a poppy/rap/electronic song the other day, and the only lyrics I could make out were "Maybe I was Shaka Zulu and I hated the clickers." This phrase isn't pulling up the name or artist of the song on Google (there aren't any relevant results, actually). Do you recognize the tune?

I'm trying to find a song. Maybe you can help. Won't that be exciting?

Hello, darlings! How are we all today? Growing tall and strong? Good, good. That's what I like to hear. I must now commandeer your brains and I will give them back when I'm done. Years ago, I was out for a drive, and listening to the radio late at night. This would have been at the lower, collegey end of the FM dial. I want to say I was somewhere in Connecticut at the time. Total ballpark here, but I'd guess it was maybe something like 2006. I heard a song that I remember as being fun to listen to, and I wanted to find it again, and I have not been able to do so. Details are within. [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.
