Top 10 Rap Songs of All Time

06. Insane in the Brain – Cypress Hill (1993)

Sure, it’s about marijuana, but you pretty much have to accept its appearance in most Cypress Hill songs. With absurdist lyrics and a nearly lilting flow and distinctive beat, “Insane in the Brain” is one of the most recognizable tracks in hip hop’s history. Seventeen years later, it’s always good to make your membrane just a little insane.

notable lyrics:

To da one on da flamboyant tempa
I just toss that ham in the fryin pan like spam
It’s done when I come in slam
Damn, I feel like the son of sam

Like louie armstrong played the trumpet
I’ll hit dat bong and break ya off something soon
I got ta get my props,
Cops come and try to snatch my crops
These pigs wanna blow my house down
Head underground to the next town
They get mad when they come to raid my pad
And I’m out in the nine-deuce Cad
Yes I’m the pirate pilot
Of this ship if I get with the ultraviolet dream
Hide from the red light beam
Now do you believe in the unseen?
