Too Short – Blowjob Betty (1993)

When it comes to dirty rap lyrics, no one looms larger than Too Short. Along with Miamiโ€™s 2 Live Crew, the Oakland MC opened the doors for X-rated rap in the โ€˜80s (although it can be said that both took inspiration from the recently departed funk icon Blowfly), and his lyrics have remained delightfully raw and nasty throughout his now 30-year career. He even roped Sister Nancy into his dirty web in 1993 โ€” a time when dancehall was experiencing its own descent into slackness โ€” sampling โ€œBam Bamโ€ on โ€œBlowjob Betty,โ€ a self-explanatory tale about a woman who uses her head to get ahead. This one is definitely NSFW.
