Off-Topic Tuesday: Hip Hop Hooray and Parker Lewis

Classic early-90'sNaughty By Nature’s Hip Hop Hooray is one of the most well-known rap songs of all time. Now, maybe you don’t like it if you’re a “true thug,” but you’ve gotta admit that the chorus and beat can get stuck in your head. But is that what makes the song such a good one? No… what makes the song a classic is a quick reference to the much-too-short-lived Fox comedy Parker Lewis Can’t Lose:”

“Fools get foolish, neither them or Parker Lewis knew us…
You could have crews wit shoes and can’t step to us.”

Am I the only one that finds it completely awesome that one of the most-played hip hop songs of all time makes reference to this show? And for 2 reasons: (1) Because the show was sweet, and (2) because it means that Naughty By Nature actually watched it?! If you enjoyed the show, too, click here to help get it released on DVD. “Gentlemen, we have achieved coolness... Synchronize Swatches!”
