You don't look to Mr. "Slob on My Knob" for deep wisdom. But the Three 6 mafioso does have a way with words, and following last summer's strip-club anthem "Bandz a Make Her Dance" (included here), his major-label solo debut is a parade of jams involving weed, drank and sketchy sex, with Cheech & Chong punch lines exhaled over fat stoner beats. Justin Timberlake takes the hook on a rare romantic interlude ("The Woods"), and while there's sound business advice – "Make money/No vacation/Pay cash/Don't make payments," Juicy instructs on "Stop It" – twerkin' remains a dubious career path ("Scholarship"). But no matter; the party rolls on.

    “Money For Nothing”

    Dire Straits | 1984

    Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
