9. Foxy Brown f. Spragga Benz “Oh Yeah”

Yes, Foxy is Brooklyn-Jamaican and this entry was almost tripped up by the Fugees clause. But if we counted all rappers with west indian roots as reggae artists that would eliminate basically all New York rap which is just silly (I think Heavy D actually won a reggae Grammy–it’s different). Plus like “Bad Boyz” this is a prime example of the underlying dancehall cameo equation which is that one patois syllable on the hook is worth a thousand rap words. Bonus points for squeezing a second Cham and Dave Kelly cameo into the same video with the “Tables Will Turn” outro.
