O.J. Simpson's Going Away Present: Gangsta Rap Video "Get Juiced"

December 8, 2008 4:52 PM ET

O.J. Simpson was sentenced to at least nine years of prison last week, but he isn't going quietly. Instead, he's leaving us with his first ever "gangsta rap" video entitled "Get Juiced," perhaps the oddest display of hip-hop cinema since R. Kelly got trapped in that closet and the best Simpson vehicle since The Naked Gun 2 1/2. The music video is actually just a promotional tool for the Juiced tape, which features O.J. partaking in Punk'd-esque pranks like acting like a used cars salesmen peddling his infamous white Ford Bronco (complete with autograph, bullet holes and "escapability") and pretending he's on the show Cheaters. The visual spectacle is trumped only by the ridiculous lyrics, featuring our new Facebook status "Don't you know there's no stopping the Juice/When I'm on the floor I'm like a lion on the loose/Better shoot me with a tranquilizer dart/Don't be stupid, I'm not a Simpson named Bart." Contrary to the lyrics, the Nevada court of law found a way to stop the Juice without the aid of a tranquilizer dart.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
