Kelis - We don't think we can fit anything else ? let alone more dairy ? but Kelis has insisted on bringing her own world-famous dessert. "Just get the perfect blend," she sings on "Milkshake," "plus what you have within." It's unfortunate in some ways. Not only will our stomachs be upset, but now we can't invite Nas, and his lobster and scallions dish is legendary.    (Photo: Arista)

Nas – "Fried Chicken" - On his 2008 LP Untitled (originally called  Nigger), Nas teamed up with Busta Rhymes to express his conflicted love affair with the fried yardbird. “Give me heart disease,” he rhymed to his meal, “but need you in my kitchen.” Busta follows up with another meat that's controversial in the 'hood: pork. Even if you're vegan, you can relate. (Photo: Tim Mosenfelder/Getty Images)

A Victorious Battle - Now a hip hop veteran, Luda released his 7th album, Battle of the Sexes, in 2010.

Raekwon (Feat: Ghostface Killah and Method Man): "Ice Cream"  - Usually when the Wu refers to cream, they mean money, but on this 1995 classic, Raekwon, Ghostface and Method Mad use it as a metaphor for the flavors of women they like: "french vanilla, butter pean, chocolate deluxe."(Photos from left: Sozufe Adeleri/Retna Ltd, Matthew Peyton/Getty Images for Microsoft, Jeff Kravitz/FilmMagic)

A Tribe Called Quest: "Ham 'n' Eggs" - This wasn't a Dr. Suess-like ode. Keeping with the consciousness of early ‘90s hip hop, Tribe rhythmically decried eating the swine with this unsung tune from their debut LP, People's Instinctive Travels, and the Paths of Rhythm.

2. R. Kelly - R. Kelly's choir-boy voice and chart-topping r?sum? have landed him roles on classics by Biggie ("F-----g You Tonight") and hits by Diddy ("Satisfy You") and even Cassidy ("Hotel").  (Photo: Christopher Polk/Getty Images for Coachella)

R. Kelly: Chocolate Factory - Since his 2003 LP mainly discussed the ladies and partying, it made sense that R. Kelly titled it after a place that makes women's favorite aphrodisiac.  (Photo: Christopher Polk/Getty Images for Coachella)

6. 'Satisfy My Soul' - Like much of 1978's Kaya, "Satisfy My Soul," a total reimagining of the Wailers' "Don't Rock My Boat," beams with life-affirming love from the second the regal, unforgettable horn melody kicks in.(Photo: Ian Dickson/Redferns/Getty Images)

The 10 James Brown Songs Rappers Love to Sample - James Brown is both a musical legend and innovator.

Here are 10 that rappers love to use. (Photo: Matt Cardy/Getty Images)

The Supremes - The much ballyhooed 2002 tour Return to Love, which was billed as a reunion of Diana Ross and all other former members of the Supremes, hit a major snag when the two other members of the "classic" Supremes lineup, Mary Wilson and Cindy Birdsong, refused to participate. Ross performed 14 dates with two lesser known former members, Scherrie Payne and Lynda Laurence, but the promoter canceled the remaining 16 dates after disappointing sales.

The Supremes: "Buttered Popcorn" - Before Diana Ross vocally lead this Motown mega girl group, Florence Ballard sang lead on this 1961 ode to buttery popcorn. Hollywood was just starting to increase the use of color film around this time, so we get why this date-night snack was exciting.  (Photo: Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)

Chedda Kidd featuring CBreezy Westbred: "Chicken n' Waffles" - Given his name, we can tell hip hop up-and-comer Chedda Kidd likes food, and from the song we can tell he'd like a woman who can cook up this classic breakfast-anytime meal.  (Photo: SOWESTBRED ENTERTAINMENT)
