Rodney Dangerfield

Comedian Rodney Dangerfield (RIP) took his wildly popular "I don't get no respect!" catchphrase and made a comedy album of it, No Respect. He then flipped it to some funky beats, added some R&B singers and created the persona "Rappin' Rodney." His self-titled single, "Rappin' Rodney," actually became one of the first rap records to hit Billboard's Hot 100 and it got heavy rotation on MTV. This was 1983. (Photo: Frank Micelotta/Getty Images)
