Skit Parade

De La Soul, Public Enemy and Dr. Dre’s own N.W.A. had made album skits an artform, but the hilarious interludes on The Chronic — including "$20 Sack Pyramid" and the intro to "Deeez Nuuuts" — made them a necessity. Since then, nearly all rap LPs have featured skits, sometimes several of them, for better or worse.
