Thanks for checking me out...

@ Zed - It's okay, babe. Read and learn...LOL

Cocoa Girl said...

By the way, T.Cas, you're the winner thus far...13/16, including the bonus! Nice!!!

T. Cas said...

I just remembered # 14- its the Pharcyde - Passing me by. I know its too late, but just wanted to let you know that I know. Still cant remember those other 2, but its gonna bother me all day.

Single Ma said...

LMAO @ PG-27

Girl, I aint even gone lie to ya. I don't know not nan song on this list. I feel so ashamed, especially after you just gave me props. Hell, I'm at work (yea that's my excuse LOL)! Some of them look familiar but I can't place the phrases. Damn! Please don't snatch my playa card. LOL

But why I start leanin to the side when I saw #11? Girl I love-d-ed that video!! Looking at some of the comments, I'm sitting here bobbin my head and reminiscing like a mugg. I feel like saying, yo where the party at cuz somebody needs 2 fiya up the grill!! LOL

Supa said...

OKAY I'M TOO LATE!!!! :( Lemme see if I can guess the ones that other folks couldn't...

Waaaaaa!!!!

Supa said...

'Aint #9 Pharcyde????

*small voice*

Supa said...

and you wrong for that crackhead ass picture of Flav!!!!!

Paula D. said...

Dang, I only knew 7, 10 & 11.
Teenage Love, Treat em right & Summertime....right?

hersoledad said...

I can hear it all in my head, I just can't put the songs with an artist. I LOVE the age warning though. Funny!

Cocoa Girl said...

Um, Ya'll are NOT SUPPOSED TO READ OTHER PEOPLE'S COMMENTS BEFORE YOU TRY!!!

Geez! I'se so hurt, Supa. So hurt.

BTW, nah, #9 ain't Pharcyde! Nobody has gotten that one....naa, naaaaaaa!

Knockout Zed said...

Damn, I knew #6 was MC Lyte. I just had the wrong song!

#9 is soooo vague. I would say it's either Bonita Applebaum (which I doubt) or I Got A Man by Pos K.

KZ

Knockout Zed said...

And I thought the bonus was from DWYCK (Gangstarr and Nice & Smooth)

KZ

Knockout Zed said...

I'll quit commenting now.

KZ

Knockout Zed said...

OK...now!

Nichelle said...

I tried to comment last night - but I must have gotten Blogger when they were straight trippin', because my comments saved.

Anyway, looking at everyone's answers, I realize I must be truly grown now because I didn't guess any of them!

Nichelle said...

I meant to say my comments didn't save!

Cocoa Girl said...

Nichelle - I'm sorry that Blogger your comments.

Zed - #9 ain't Bonita Applebaum...

Somebody, anybody get #9 correct???

Supa said...

answers, please!!! *pouting*

T. Cas said...

I got it!!!!! I Get Around...Tupac..

What's up love, how you doing?
Well I've been hanging sanging, trying to do my thang
Oh, you heard that I was banging
Your home girl you went to school with, that's cool
But did she tell you about her sister and your cousin? Thought I
wasn't

Not a hipster said...

Now I see after the fact that #11 is Summertime. I couldnt place it, and now I can't get it out of my head!

HarlemSongstress said...

COCOA--this is a stick-up! Put your hands where my eyes can see & come clean with the answers!!!!

Cocoa Girl said...

T.Cas is officially THE BOMB! 15/16 PLUS the BTW!!! hahaha!

Cocoa Girl said...

See, weekends were made for Michelob
But it's a Monday, my day, so just let me hit it, yo
And don't mistake my statement for a clown
We can keep in the down low long as you know, that I get around


I'll consolidate and post all the correct answers later today. I wanna give others the chance to try!
