To be successful in the rap game, you’ve gotta have bars. You’ve got to come hard in your music and your persona. Rappers are usually so serious, as they should be. They have to maintain a rough exterior to back up lyrics about being a boss, having the hottest girls, the flyest cars, and the dollar dollar bills. But there are some rappers who don’t mind cracking a joke or two.
The rappers you are about to see aren’t necessarily funny, but when it comes to their music, they are known for spitting clever rhymes in the form of jokes. But be careful, going down this list will be sure to make you spit your water out.
Embarking on new business ventures, it’s been a while since Luda has made music. He’s given us a ton of hits, and though most of them are not the most hilarious, that doesn’t stop us from remembering the hilarious track, “Freaky Thangs,” from his third studio album, Word of Mouf.
“If it tickles in the middle from Mr. Pickles you try to escape
So give me the rope you gettin’ wrapped up
Rooty tooty so fruity and fresh, I’m fresh and fruity
Ya duty’s to figure the booty’s gettin slapped up”
Now, Marshall Mathers is known for the coming up with some of the funniest punch lines. While there are way too many to quote, I can’t help but to think of the dark, funny lines from one of my favorite songs, “Guilty Conscience” featuring Dr. Dre (his part is in parentheses):
“Okay, thought about it? Still wanna stab her?
Grab her by the throat, get your daughter and kidnap her?
That’s what I did, be smart, don’t be a retard
You gonna take advice
From somebody who slapped Dee Barnes?
(What you say?) What’s wrong? Didn’t think I’d remember?
(I’ma kill you, mothaf**ka!) Uhh-ahh, temper, temper
Mr. Dre, Mr. N.W.A, Mr. AK
Coming straight outta Compton, y’all better make way
How in the f**k you gonna tell this man not to be violent?”
You can’t have the list without naming Afroman as one of the funniest rappers ever. His 2000 single “Because I Got High” not only mirrored the truth about stoners, but was a hit. How could you not laugh with lyrics like these:
“I wasn’t gonna run from the cops but I was high
I was gonna pull right over and stop… but I was high
Now I am a paraplegic and I know why (Why man?)
Because I got high
Because I got high
Because I got high”
