D.R.S., "Gangsta Lean"

Although technically an R&B song, the drunk kit and content on Dirty Rotten Scoundrel's "Gangsta Lean" made it oh so hip hop. "This is for my homies," they crooned. "See you when I get there." The song helped propel their 1993 album of the same name to No. 34 on Billboard's Top 200.
