Rap and R&B's Worst '90s Ripoffs

Rap_Worst_1990s_Ripoffs.jpg

The '90s are back! The fashions, the music, the attitude. There are more people Rollerblading by the beach than we've seen in about 25 years. (Wow, it's been too long!)

Now, we couldn't be more excited about the return of the most bleakly apathetic decade in pop culture. But along with the return of flannels and overalls, acid wash and jelly shoes, modern rap and R&B are rehashing a bunch of classic '90s anthems.

Sometimes, we can dig it. Sometimes, it feels like blasphemy. Sometimes, it's so mind-bendingly stupid, we just can't understand who OK-ed the hook. Here are the bad, the worst, and the totally what-were-they-thinking.

7. Drake's "Draft Day'
We're starting our list off with an example of how to do things right. Lauryn Hill might not be stoked on this sampling of "That Thing," or maybe she is. Drake is pretty much on his king shit right now. We feel like Drizzy brought it hard enough on this record to justify the use of a classic beat. He made it his own. We can't say much for the rest of this list.

Having lived in Palm Beach Florida for several years, listening to the 97.9 WRMF has become a daily ritual for me. I start my day off with a healthy breakfast and tune in to 97.9. ’The WRMF Morning Show’ with Jennifer Ross, Deena Lang and Joe Raineri makes it the hottest show ever. Tune in today or stream online at www.wrmf.com

Would you like to know more about Bigfoot and the mafia? If so read my family biography "Surviving Bigfoot and the Dixie Mafia." My true book was written from journals, diaries, and interviews. It is sold out in paperback, however you can read it free online from six stores.

Yo Gotti's "I Know," Featuring Rich Homie Quan You know that we know that you stole this "I Know" beat from Luniz's classic track "I Got 5 on It." Just because you put a pre-existing dope beat behind your mumbling doesn't mean you made a hot track. Although, it's still getting play, so hats off to you, sir. WELL PUT!
