Pharoahe Monch "Simon Says" Get The F*ck Up (Video, 1999)

"Y'all know the name Pharoahe f#ckin' Monch, ain't a damn thing changed.," exclaims Pharoahe on his smash hit, "Simon Says," in '99. Argued to be in the Rawkus' top 50 songs by Complex, they said and I agree, "There are artists that need synths, ghostwriters, a big name guest, and/or a bunch of other extras to make a club banger. Pharoahe Monch did it with only a four note Godzilla sample. Throw in some clever rhymes about breatesses, Tomb Raider, and ballin and viola, you have yourself one of this best hip-hop bangers ever. If you didn't "get the fuck up," chances are you're already dead. Our condolences." The song (despite its sample issues) is a hit to this day, keep it in rotation!

Peep the lyrics to the track, get familiar...
