3. Cam’Ron, “I’m Sorry”

As a wise man named Ted Bawno once put it, “Ignorant rap by intelligent rappers is entertainment; ignorant rap by an ignorant rapper is death.” Whether you like to admit or not, Cam’Ron definitely falls in the former category; his greatest achievement as a rapper is being so much of an asshole that he’s actually somehow likable. Cam’s asshole qualities are on full display on “I’m Sorry,” a classically callous male response to Foxy Brown’s “Sorry” (that’s Foxy Brown, the ’80’s reggae singer, kids, not the ’90s Brooklyn rapper) over the timeless Taxi riddim.
