Heard the WORST rap song EVER on XM radio

Okay I'm sure a lot of people have heard of this but I never had until stumbling upon it on our way home from an Orioles game last week. The range of emotions shifted quickly from curiosity to shock to uncontrollable laughter.

Seriously, how did this guy have any sort of career after this? And if you don't believe it can be that bad, PLEASE download it. It makes Vanilla Ice look like Tupac.

Worst rap song ever

And also I know some of you think "all rap sucks" so save it for another thread.

Okay, this isn't even close to the worst rap song ever. Anything by Master P is worse than this.

Oh, I remember that video! [when MTV played videos]
Very cheesy, had ol J sneaking into a vault with a bunch of women who then proceeded to worship him like a harem.
The lyrics were actually intelligible with out all the cursing, so it got points from me.
I always liked "If I Only Had a Brain" by MC900 Foot Jesus.

BTW this is not a poll. It's a celebration of the worst rap song in history.

Ah yes, LL Cool J's "I'm The Type of Guy" off of the timeless gem of an album "Walking with a Panther".

That song is old and dated. It's uninspired, yes. But not the worst rap song ever.

Have you ever heard "Daisy Dukes" by Duice? How about "I Love You" by Vanilla Ice? How about "Sippin' on Da Syrup" by 3-6 Mafia? That song is about drinking Robitussin fer chrissakes!

There are many worse songs out there, IMO.

Not quite, its prescription Cough syrup (the kind with Codeine) mixed with Vodka or soda.

And yes that song is indeed retarded.

Man, I guess I'm the only one who was dissapointed that this song was left off his greatest hits album. I was only nine or so when it came out, and I haven't heard it in years, so it could very well suck.

EDIT: Oh man, this line is great. "I'm the type of guy to cold put on a pamper."

What the hell does that mean?

I actually like this song. Back in the day I bought the tape just because of it. Out of curiosity, what about it makes it THAT bad to you? To me, it just seems like standard rap bragging with an (intentional) comical edge.

Also, this isn't even the cheesiest LL song by a long shot. That honor would go to his theme song from the Deep Blue Sea soundtrack. http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/llcoo...sharksfin.html

Sample lyrics for the lazy:
These waters are waist level
The hallway's flooded
Lost your scuba gear
The killer's cold-blooded
His name's LL
You don't really want it
I ate your ancestors
The ocean is haunted
Give THAT a listen and see if "I'm That Type of Guy" still seems as funny.

What an embarassing song. "Deepest! Bluest! My hat is like a Shark's Fin!"

Heres a recent one I saw on MTV2: Akon - Locked Up. One of the worst songs Ive heard in a decade and truly defines the word garbage.

Although not a rap song per se, Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock had a pretty lame love song called Crush on It Takes Two

Modern day LL is laughable, sure. Radio and Bigger and Deffer are bona fide classics, though. Hip-hop doesn't get much better than "Rock the Bells."

That being said, here are the lyrics for "I'm That Type of Guy" (with my favorite lines bolded), courtesy of the OriginalHip-Hop Lyrics Archive:

You're the type of guy that can't control your girl
You try to buy her love with diamonds and pearls
I'm the type of guy that shows up on the scene
And gets the seven digits, you know the routine
You're the type of guy that tells her, "Stay inside"
While you're steady frontin in your homeboy's ride
I'm the type of guy that comes when you leave
I'm doin your girlfriend, that's somethin you can't believe
Cause I'm that type of guy

You're the type of guy that gets suspicious
I'm the type of guy that says, "The puddin is delicious"

You're the type of guy that has no idea
That a sneaky, freaky brother's sneakin in from the rear
I'm the type of guy to eat it, when he won't
And look in the places that your boyfriend don't
You're the type of guy to try to call me a punk
Not knowin that your main girl's bitin my chunk

I'm the type of guy that loves a dedicated lady
Their boyfriends are borin, and I can drive em crazy
You're the type of guy to give her money to shop
She gave me a sweater _kiss_ thank you, sweetheart
I'm that type of guy

I'm the type of guy that picks her up from work early
Takes her to breakfast, lunch, dinner, and breakfast
You're the type of guy eatin a tv dinner
Talkin about... "Goddamn it, I'ma kill her"
I'm the type of guy to make her say, "Why you're illin, Bee?"
...You're the type of guy to say, "My lower back is killin me"
...Catch my drift?
You're the type of guy that likes to drink Olde English
I'm the type of guy to cold put on a pamper
You're the type of guy to say, "What you talkin bout?"
I'm the type of guy to leave my drawers in your hamper
I'm that type of guy

I'm that type of guy
You know what I mean?
Check it out...

T-y-p-e g-u-y
I'm that type of guy to give you a pound and wink my eye
Like a bandit, caught me redhanded, took her for granted
But when I screwed her, you couldn't understand it
Cause you're the type of guy that don't know the time
Swearin up and down, "That girl's all mine"
I'm the type of guy to let you keep believin it
Go 'head to work, while I defrost it, and season it
I'm that type of guy

I'm that type of guy

Know what I mean

I'm that type of guy

"So ridiculous"

So funny
I don't know
Come on down
Yeah
Like real cool, you know what I mean?
I like just going to your frontdoor ringin bells
And just like, ha, leave...

There are probably a billion rock songs that are sillier/dumber than this one rap song.

you guys have clearly never heard the Hulk Hogan rap songs from Hogan's album (see Beach Patrol), Macho Man's rap album, or B-Shoc's album (guy from Icey Hot Stuntaz, if you don't know who these douchebags are then you need to google image search for them lol)

3 of the worst albums ever. However, they're so bad that they're hilarious. Every time, they make me laugh until it hurts and my eyes tear

I love the title "Doin' Thangs". It's so vague.

Like what kinds of "thangs"? Getting the car washed? Buying a gallon of milk? Cashing your welfare check?

Nope, originally poster was right. It is about over the counter robitussin for the DXM.

The only thing the OTC stuff will do is make you sleepy.

I think you are both right. You CAN get high off drinking Robitussin (from the Dextromorphane) AND the song was about a prescription codeine/alcohol concoction.

Well, I may be wrong about the song, or not. I don't care that much and I doubt you do about the specifics of what those clowns were singing about. I do know that at the time the song came out, the hot thing in LA was DXM use that was "popular in the south". At least that is what the LA crowd assumed the guys were talking about.

Google will tell ya all about it:
