Ritchcraft – Say It Ain’t So EP

Say It Ain't So

I posted one of Ritchcraft’s remixes and promised there would be an EP when he finished his weekly series. Well, the time has come to unleash it!

The Nova Scotia, Canada producer’s heavy work culminates in Say It Ain’t So, a 12-track EP with remixed verses from Jay-Z, Nas, The Roots, AZ, Saigon, plus original cuts from Halifax reps Kayo, CooLEra and even the man Ritchcraft himself.

My personal favorites are “Whose World Is This,” a reinterpretation of Nasir’s “The World Is Yours” with its groovin’ bassline & sweet vocal flip and AZ’s “The Come Up” as the verses flow over a break-beat and orchestral strings.

You can download the full EP at the Bandcamp link below, and feel free to hit me or Ritch up and let us know what you think. Enjoy!

Ten Fellatio-Friendly Rap Songs

Gettin' Head Tease

Disclaimer: Mature content ahead. If you are younger than 18, please click here.

Hey, someone had to do it – why not me?

Rappers are among the most outspoken supporters of the fine art of fellatio, so much so that they dedicate entire verses or even songs to singing its praises. I mean, who doesn’t enjoy a friendly game of tonsil tag now and then? 

Offensive? Somewhat, although protected by the first amendment. Hilarious? Always, as long as you’re open to frequent vulgarities and an assumption of male dominance. Although, in the woman’s defense, this particular act of oral sex simply cannot be forced. Just ask Delou Bowers.

Anyways. Let’s get down to business, shall we? Here are nine fellatio-friendly rap songs that would make even Karrine Steffans blush.

 

1. Akinyele ft. Crystal Johnson – “Put It In My Mouth”

Prime Example:

Numbing up your tonsils like ambesol anesthetic
Cummin’ down your throat like chloraseptic

This here is the grand-daddy of ’em all. This is the song that should have instantly sprung to your mind upon reading the title of this post. Not only was Akinyele’s raunchy ode to oral stimulation the first of its kind when he dropped an EP of the same name in ’96, but it’s pretty much the sole reason we know who the hell he is. The Queens rapper masterfully solidified his relevance in hip-hop history with lines like “I be like Herbie and hand you a cock” and “I’m givin bitches permanent beards/Put your lips here and catch these damn facial hairs.” He even got female vocalist Crystal Johnson to cosign the activity, spawning countless YouTube tribute videos and reassuring ladies everywhere that it’s okay to use their “brain.” Genius.

 

2. Tear Da Club Up Thugs / Three 6 Mafia – “Slob On My Knob”

Prime Example: (Too many, but the opening line gets right to the point..)

Slob on my knob like corn on the cob”

The Three 6 fellas have never been ones to beat around the bush, quite literally according to this track from Memphis collective Tear Da Club Up Thugs’ CrazyNDaLazDayz (“I didn’t want the cat/ So I vamped out and never came back.”)  Juicy J is straight-forward in his demands, telling his partner firmly “Lay on the bed, and give me head/ Don’t have to ask, don’t have to beg.” Dunno how effective that strategy would be for us regular folk, though I could only imagine what kind of groupies J was messin’ with. Must be classy if she would agree to “Squeeze on my nuts, lick on my butt/ The natural curly hair, please don’t touch.” Yes, these are the same dudes that were the first black rap group to win an Academy Award. MLK would be so proud.

 

3. Cam’ron ft. Lil’ Wayne – “Suck It Or Not”

Prime Example:

I approached her, slight grin, white Timbs
Number you can type in, said she don’t like men
I just laughed, ma, if we link, we link
You don’t like men? Me neither, what a coinkidink

I still can’t believe that a song that so blatantly depicted getting face would get this much radio spin, especially in the major New York market. I mean, even the edited “Touch It Or Not”  from Cam’ron’s ’06 disc Killa Season revealed Killa Cam & The Martian ‘s intentions – from Cam warning  he knows “it’s white but here come the hot sauce” to Waynechillin’ like a scarecrow, lookin’ for some brain.Weezy also echoes Biggie, another member of our list later on, with his sentiment of “hoping she swallows.” Don’t we all?

 

4. Shawnna ft. Pharrell, Too $hort & Lil’ Wayne – “Gettin’ Some (Remix)” / Shawnna ft. Ludacris, Lil’ Wayne, Too $hort, Rick Ross, & Pimp C – “Gettin’ Some (Remix)”

Prime Example:

Santa Claus, I leave her with a white chin
Yes I get a lotta neck like a violin”

This is another example of a somewhat radio-friendly single centered around juicin’ the ol’ pole. Multiple rappers jumped on Shawnna’s ’06 single “Gettin’ Some” to offer their unabashed approval but Weezy once again steals the show with his sexual witticisms, sometimes resorting to drastic measures because “they go so hard, [he] gotta wear a cup.” Even Bill Clinton gets a special shout out from “head honcho” Ludacris who, unsurprisingly, “chokes on the fruity while this lil’ cuties chokin’ on me.” Sounds to me like the breakfast of champions.

 

5. Snoop Dogg – “Head Doctor” 

Prime Example:

She might be cute, she might be thick
But she will get G’d if she don’t suck dick”

I know what you’re thinking, ‘What kind of list would this be without including Snoop D-O Double G?’ “Head Doctor” is the West Coast OG pimp’s reminder that he isn’t afraid to “spit that shit you aggins thank.” Later on, Calvin Broadus finds himself in the middle of a threesome then clarifies that it doesn’t matter how you look, there will be repercussions if you don’t dome. That’s real talk, nephew.

6. Lil’ Kim ft. 50 Cent – “Magic Stick”

Prime Example:

I ain’t out shoppin’, spendin’ dude’s c-notes
I’m in the crib givin’ aggins deep throat”

It’s obvious Lil’ Kim ain’t afraid to get the (blow) job done. She turned a song about a male organ possessing supernatural powers to a bragfest about her tongue tickling skills. And can we blame her? Plastic surgery or not, I’d still let her flip me “head over heels.” Remember when Chris Rock classified females into 3 different categories based on their dome? Christopher Wallace’s former boo falls into the 3rd one: “the woman that likes nothing better than to suck a dick.” *Applauds*

7. Murs – “Slob My Knob”

Prime Example:

The mean bitches suck and the nice girls swallow

This gem is tucked neatly into indie sensation Murs’ 2000 album Murs Rules The World. Unlike most songs about knob-slobbin’ in which rappers boast about the amount they receive, this one actually thanks women for their generosity. Murs represents fellas all over that wish to extend their gratitude (rather than their members, for once) to the “cock suckin’ champs, the deap throat divas with jaws like clamps”  for “rockin’ the mic, cleanin’ the pipes.” He even offers to dedicate a song to “step-by-step instructions,” because really, it’s the 21st century – fellatio should be an essential weapon in every woman’s arsenal. Ladies, you know damn well how to stop your man from cheating.  Take heed.

8. Notorious B.I.G. – “Nasty Boy”

Prime Example:

Back of my mind, I hope she swallow

Although the song from the first disc of Biggie’s Life After Death isn’t strictly focused on dingers, the G.O.A.T. recognizes the importance of a lady finishing the job properly. And if she doesn’t like it, she’ll think twice next time about spilling her drink on his cream Wallows.

 

9. Naughty By Nature – “O.P.P.”

Prime Example:

It’s the longest, loveliest, lean– I call it the leanest
It’s another five letter word rhymin’ with ‘cleanest’ and ‘meanest’

It’s the second verse in this chart-topping classic that I’m referring to here. Treach dances around the actual word, but it’s not important really. You can’t tell me that the sexual encounters he’s hinting at don’t involve some degree of lickin’ the D. Plus, he kicks knowledge that can be applied to a female’s brain, “Now when you do it, do it well and make sure that it counts.” Do I agree? Yeah, you know me.

10. Nas & Bravehearts – “Oochie Wally”

Prime Example:

Lil’ young thing, go around my dick with your tongue ring”

Come to think of it, I have absolutely no idea what this “Oochie Wally” phenomenon was truly about. When it originally appeared on the QB’s Finest collection in 2000, I had no clue. When I listened to it yesterday to compile this list, I still had no clue. Was it just an excuse for Nas and his Braveheart cronies to talk about sex? How they pimp women? Whatever the reason, I included it here primarily for two reasons. One, Naish has a slight infatuation with head, as he “fuck a bitch face more than her waist for real.” For real? Doubt it. The other is one of my favorite raunchy lines of all time, when Jungle coaxes “lil’ young thing, go around my dick with your tongue ring.” Who needs a solid topic when you have one-liners like that?

 

Are there any other rap songs that celebrate fellatio in all of its glory? If so, leave a comment with your thoughts.
