Five Real Trap (Rap) Songs

5.Three Six Mafia's "Sippin' on Some Syrup"

No, Three Six wasn't "sippin' on some scissors." Admit it, you didn't know what a promethazine/codeine-induced coma was before this banger. Triple 6 and UGK pioneered heavy trap with an ode to the purple drank. Its choppy percussion defined the genre, and the vibrating synth intro and spacey keyboard sample (borrowed from Prince of Soul Marvin Gaye's "Is That Enough") keeps the duo leanin' hard. As DJ Paul professes: "Niggas sippin' and dippin' and trippin'/Man, I'm bout all out."
