Pharoahe Monch, "One Four Love Pt. 1"

In one of the most shocking examples of police brutality ever, Haitian immigrant Abner Louima was beaten and sexually assaulted with a toilet plunger by Brooklyn police officers in 1997. Despite this, hip hop was relatively silent on the incident. Monch helped resolve this with his fiery verse on "One Four Love Pt. 1," a 2000 posse cut that spoke out against police brutality.

Cops they transport me from Long Island to Medina
With they f--ked up demeanor
Dreamin' of stickin' it to me like Abner Louima
