8. Doug E. Fresh feat. Beenie Man-“Hands In The Air”

Doug E.’s now slept-on ’95 comeback LP, Play, was thick with yard vibes. “Freaks,” the showcase for BK-based, pre-teen mini-badman Lil’ Vicious was of course the hit and the most memorable of the bunch but it doesn’t necessarily fit the bill here, seeing as Doug E. only played the role of the beatbox. “Hands in the Air” meanwhile helped loosen the ground for Beenie’s eventual crossover success a few years down the road.
