Rap's Ten Best Songs About Big Butts
Photo by Alex Markow
What is every rapper's favorite body part? C'mon, that's an easy one.
More MCs have put their mind to the big butt issue than there are scientists working on curing cancer. And obviously, in rap music, the bigger the booty, the better.
Modern asses are reaching colossal proportions, but not all of the best butt songs are new. Let's take a walk down memory lane and honor some of the greatest music about asses ever.

10. A Tribe Called Quest's "Bonita Applebum"
A Tribe Called Quest is one of the greatest hip-hop groups in the history of rap music. They penned this little ode to the swole in 1990, and while it's no twerking anthem, we'd venture to say it's the sexiest song on the list. The sonic equivalent of someone running their hands over your body. That's hot.
9. Busta Rhymes' "Light Your Ass on Fire," Featuring Pharrell
This beat is freakin' nasty, and Busta is one of the greatest rappers of all time. That stadium echo makes us wanna writhe like a belly dancer and stomp around like a Sigma. We love the understated-ness of this booty banger. A girl almost gets the feeling that Busta's only interested in admiring the ass like a precious artifact. Hermmm.
