Some rappers happen to be thoughtful, intelligent people. Every Monday that isn’t a national holiday, Rocks Off will have some of them here discussing issues relevant to their culture.

This Week’s Panel: Bun B, Paul Wall, One Hunnidt, Mac, O.N.E., Brad Gilmore, Renzo, JD, Preemo, Authentic Snoopy and more

Not Invited: Roy Jones Jr.

This Week’s Prompt: In honor of Slim Thug attempting to arrange a fight between himself and Mike Tyson, we asked a bunch of rappers what song we should we use for an upcoming boxing match we have. We were originally considering “My Humps”; they did not agree. Answers below.

One Hunnidt: [laughs] “My Humps”? How about “MMMBop” by Hanson?

Mac: “Southside Summertime.”
RRT: That song doesn’t make [anyone] want to fight. It makes you want to drink a juicebox and swing in the park.
