Classic: Crooked Booty

Dungeon Family - Crooked Booty (with Cee-Lo, Andre 3000, Sleepy Brown, & Khujo)

I can't believe I haven't posted this song yet. Ever since I obtained a copy of the Dungeon Family compilation album Even in Darkness, one of my all-time favorite joints has been "Crooked Booty". Even though the majority of the songs unfortunately aren't actually that great when compared to the incomparable Goodie and Outkast (and even Witchdoctor) albums before this tape, I've still got a soft spot for it. On this joint, Cee-Lo goes in on the hardest eight bars you've ever heard darn near a cappella while ending each rhyme on an explosive singing note. Then Andre starts in sing-rapping the chorus as the music triumphantly comes into the picture. Between Sleepy Brown's signature crooning while trying to describe what the crooked booty actually is and Khujo's aggressive dance rapping, this entire song's just classic. I don't wanna think too much about Dre's bridge three minutes into the joint, but it's hilarious, nonetheless. Just remember that when the doctor tells you that you're coming down with a bad case of the crooked booty ...

... and do the John Wall.
