Quiz – Food Raps

Note from Dan: This is a guest quiz from my good friend Mike. You may know Mike from such posts as New Years Eve 2007, Cookin’ up some Quack, and Chimi-Turkey. A few weeks ago, Mike and I were joking about some funny lines from rappers about food. Like most quizzes on TFIMB, this one starts out with some easy ones, but gets really hard at the end! My score was a 29 out of 50. think you can beat that? Make sure you comment and let me know how you did. I’m interested in some of my friends scores. Matty, Nick, Kel? What did you get? Anyway, here is Mike… eating beef jerky in front of the oldest monitor in history.

Since the beginning of time, (well, the beginning of rap music anyway) emcees and song writers have always felt the need to incorporate food into their lyrics. From having entire songs dedicated to bad meals at a friends’ house, to saying you still eat at Taco Bell after all the ‘glam’ and fame you have, let’s face it, these lyrics have become a staple to rap music. Some rappers choose not to be so literal, and like to use various vegetables or food items to represent money or drugs. Several main stream rappers think it’s a good idea to do this several times in a song, and still get away with being ‘amazing.’

Hearing these silly lyrics not only makes me laugh, but it makes me think of my good friend Dan and his delicious food blog. I thought it would be fun to share some of these lyrics with you all, and to quiz you at the same time. Have fun, and remember that you need to freestyle the answers (the artist and the song name). For those who don’t know what I mean, it means this: the answers have to come from your head, not google.

There are a few repeat rappers, —- means a beeped out a swear, but ____ means they said their own name. There are still some swears and drug references in here so proceed with caution. There are also NO Beastie Boys because they were already EXTENSIVELY covered here.

You get 1 point for naming the ARTIST, and 1 point for naming the SONG

36 – 50 = O.G.
26 – 35 = Baaaaallllin’
16 – 25 = Your just layin’ in the cut
10 – 15 = You’re fallin’ off
0 – 9 = Are you talkin’? PSHHH Whatever

Have you ever went over a friends house to eat,
And the food just aint no good,
I mean the macaroni’s soggy the peas are mushed,
And the chicken tastes like wood,
So you try to play it off like you think you can,
By sayin that youre full,
And then your friend says momma he’s just being polite,
He aint finished uh uh that’s bull
So your heart starts pumpin and you think of a lie,
And you say that you already ate,
And your friend says man there’s plenty of food,
So you pile some more on your plate,
While the stinky foods steamin your mind starts to dreamin,
Of the moment that it’s time to leave,
And then you look at your plate and your chickens slowly rottin,
Into something that looks like cheese…

Next days function, high class luncheon
Food is served and you’re stone cold munchin’
Music comes on, people start to dance
But then you ate so much you nearly split your pants
A girl starts walkin, guys start gawkin’
Sits down next to you and starts talkin’

I’m the cream of the crop, I rise to the top
I never eat a pig cause a pig is a cop
Or better yet a terminator
Like Arnold Schwarzenegger
Try’n to play me out like as if my name was Sega

Yeah, livin’ the raw deal, three course meals,
Spaghetti, fettucine, and veal,
But still, everything’s real in the field.

Plans to leave, throw the keys to Lil Cease,
Pull the truck up front, and roll up the next blunt,
So we can steam on the way to the telly, go fill my belly,
A t-bone steak, cheese eggs and Welch’s grape.

And every single person is a ____ _____ lurkin
He could be workin at Burger King, spittin on your onion rings
Or in the parkin lot, circling
Screaming “I don’t give a —-!”
with his windows down and his system up

Bright as the sun, I wanna have some fun
Come (come) and (hmmm) give me some of that yum-yum
Chocolate chip, honey dip, can I get a scoop? (please)
Baby, take a ride in my coupe, you make me wanna…

Said she got a kid but she got her tubes tied,
If you 21 girl that’s alright,
I wonder if a shake comin with them fries,
If so baby can I get em super sized.

I still go to Taco Bell,
Drive through, raw as hell,
I don’t care, I’m still real,
No matter how many records I sell.

Big wheels, big straps, you know I like it super sized,
Passenger’s a redbone, her weeve look like some curly fries,
Inside fish sticks, outside tartar sauce,
Pocket full of celery, imagine what she tellin me
Blowin on asparagus, the realest shit I ever smoked,
Ridin to that Trap or Die, the realest shit I ever wrote,
They know I got that broccoli, so I keep that glock with me,
Don’t get caught without one, comin from where I’m from.

If you take me for a fool, I’ll take you for a joke,
Tired of fast food, so they cooked up dope,
So now we eatin’ lobster, shrimp and things,
Watch for imposters, that’s been in the game.

That’s right, put in work,
Move your ass, go berserk,
Eat your salad, no dessert,
Get that man you deserve.

Those huge baby eyes get to runnin off at they mouth
Tellin me everything that’s on yo nasty mind
They say your malnutrition in need of vitamin D
And inviting me to that tingle in yo spine

Before _____ _____ tail pop on sale,
I feed a —– a shell like Taco Bell,
I’m flyin out to Japan to attract new fans,
Let ’em get to know the man with the tattooed fans.

Yeah in saloons we drink Boone’s and battle goons till high noon,
Bust rap toons on flat spoons, take no shorts like poon poon’s.
See hoochies pop coochies, for Gucci’s and Lucci
Find me in my Mitsubishi, eatin’ sushi, bumpin’ ______.

You’s a poptart sweetheart,
you soft in the middle,
I eat you for breakfast,
the watch exchanged for your necklace.

I went to Vegas, didn’t think it’d do any harm
I walked into this girl named Lucky Charm
For some reason we walked in the rain
She had a four-leaf clover with a big gold chain
She had a salary that was full of calories, for real
And I was in the mood for a homecooked meal
So we went to be alone
But we had to be quiet, cause her cornpops was home

Plus got more flows to come
And if I ain’t better than Big, I’m the closest one
So move over – hoes, choose ____
My food for though so hot it give you dudes ulcers

I ordered enchiladas and I ate ’em
Ali had the fruit punch
When we finished we thought for ways to get back
I had a hunch
Ali said, “Pay for lunch”
So I did it
Pulled out the wallet and I saw this wicked beautiful lady
She was a waitress there
Put the wallet down and stared and stared

Standing at my podium, I’m trying to watch my sodium,
Die high blood pressure, you even let the feds get ya,
I’m amazing, born on a full moon,
I was breed to get it in, no spoon.

What up, it’s nice to meet ya,
I’d like to treat you to a bagel and a slice a pizza,
But I’m broke as —- and I don’t get paid til the first of next month,
But if you care to join me, I was bout to roll this next blunt…

Patty cake patty cake hey the ______ ___
Don’t eat Skippy, Jif or Peter Pan
Peanut butter, cuz I’m not butter
In fact I snap back like a rubber
band, I be Sam Sam I am
And I dont eat green eggs and ham
Style will hit ya, wham!, then goddamn
You be like oh shit that’s the jam

It’s important to practice good hygiene,
At least if you wanna run with my team,
I’m bout to get into some shit that I’ve seen,
This fool’s breath, I mean so bad it’ll melt your ice cream.

She had fish fries and cookouts
On my child’s birthday I ain’t invited
Despite it, I show her the utmost respect when I fall through
All you, do is defend that lady when I call you, yeah

Said he had beef and people want him dead,
He loved the hungry ones, was only scared of affairs,
He lived the fast life, couldn’t get his path right, fried,
Just told him bout the hooters that he had last, night,
Turned himself in to the patty wagon, said no,
Bacon wouldn’t take him half the pigs on the pay, roll…
To be continued on another menu, ya dig?
