7. Eddie Murphy f. Shabba Ranks “I Was a King”

Oh, Eddie. This is kind of a terrible song but in no way is that Shabba’s fault. Despite the unintentional comedy there’s still something inspiring about the footage of Shabba jumping up in full African regalia, rocking an arena-size crowd at twilight (or is it dawn?). Extra points for pro-blackness.
