Shawn Brown, 'Rappin' Duke'

This 1983 novelty song featured Shawn Brown rapping as actor John Wayne, aka the Duke. The song made leeway on Billboard's dance and R&B/Hip Hop charts, but was immortalized forever when the Notorious B.I.G. shouted out the song and its refrain "da-ha-ha" (an imitation of John Wayne's signature laugh) on "Juicy."
