Pop music will never run out of ways to rework classic stuff like love, life, lust, etc. But let's not forget the always-popular, never-grows-old topic of getting wasted!
In fact, hip-hop philosopher extraordinaire Gucci Mane even had a song appropriately entitled "Wasted." And with a chorus like, "Party, party, party, let's all get wasted," you can only imagine what other great catch phrases come about from a Billboard hit single about getting drunk.
Crossfade brings to you the top ten all-time rap tracks about drinking. Now, sit back, relax, and pass the forty, will ya?
10. Lil Jon's "Drink" Featuring LMAFO
As if last year's hit, "Shots," wasn't drunk enough, here comes Lil Jon's latest ode to booze, called "Drink." Memorably drunk lyrics: "One shot, two shot, three shot, four/Take the bottle to the head and one fucking more/Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink! Drink!" ... And repeat.
9. Trey Songz's "Say Aah" Featuring Fabolous
"Say Aah" was a break-out hit for Trey last year. And it's a definite club favorite for the ladies. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Go Girl, it's your birthday/Open wide, know you're thirsty/Say ahhhhhhh/We don't buy no drinks at the bar/We pop champagne cos' we got that dough/Lemme hear you say ahhhhhhhhh."
8. Paradiso Girls' "Patron Tequila" Featuring Lil Jon and Eve
Even though this manufactured girl group masterminded by Jimmy Iovine died before it even got started, the Paradiso Girls' hit "Patron Tequila" made some waves in the dance circuit. Ironically enough, Lil Jon is once again featured on a song about drinking. Hmmmmmm ... Someone call AA. Memorably drunk lyrics: "By the end of the night, Imma have you drunk and throwin' up/By the end of the night, Imma have you so fucked up.
7. Jamie Foxx's "Blame It"
As if you needed an introduction, Jamie's Grammy Award winning hit took the nation by storm for inciting that everything is excusable as long as you blame it on the al-al-al-alcohol. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Blame it on the Goose, got you feelin' loose/Blame it on Patron, got you in the zone/Blame it on the al-al-al-alcohol."
6. Gucci Mane's "Wasted" Featuring Plies
Yeah ... pretty self-explanatory. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Party, party, party, let's all get wasted/Shake it for me baby girl, do it butt-naked/I'm so wasted/She's so wasted/Tell the bartender to send me 20 more cases."
5. Asher Roth's "I Love College"
Who said spending $40,000 a year on a liberal arts education was going to waste? Asher definitely didn't think so. In fact, his song pretty much epitomizes why the beer industry has survived the recent recession. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Hold the beer bong, nothing wrong with some fun/Even if we did get a little bit too drunk, time isn't wasted when you're getting wasted.
4. Far East Movement's "Like a G6"
This mega radio smash not only infiltrated our everyday lives but it brought a new verb into the English vocabulary. Who knew what it was like to get "slizzard" until this song? The world is now a better place. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Poppin' bottles in the ice, like a blizzard/When we drink it do it right gettin' slizzard/Sippin' sizzrup in my ride ... like Three 6/Now I'm feeling so fly like a G6."
3. LMFAO's "Shots" Featuring Lil Jon
If there was ever a song that made you subconsciously want to throw up every time you listened to it, it would be this one. No need to actually drink, just play this track on repeat and you'll be drunk for days. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots, shots/EVERYBODY!"
2. Beastie Boys' "Brass Monkey"
A Brass Monkey is a clever concoction of Old English with orange juice, it's now a must-have song (and cocktail) on any party-playlist. Memorably drunk lyrics: "'Cause I drink it anytime and anyplace/When it's time to get ill, I'll pour it on my face."

1. Snoop Dogg's "Gin and Juice"
Ahhhhhhh, yeah! This classic not only gave gin its much-need comeback. (Screw you, vodka!) It also made Snoop Dogg and Tha Dogg Pound a household name ... not to mention "Indo" weed. Good shit. Memorably drunk lyrics: "Now that I got me some Seagram's Gin/Everybody got their cups but they ain't chipped in/Now this type of shit happens all the time/You gotta get yours, but fool, I gotta get mine."
