July 4th Jamz: An Essential Holiday Playlist


Nothing says “God Bless America” like 90s hip-hop and R&B. If the Founding Fathers had a soundtrack while drafting the Declaration of Independence, it would’ve been produced by Dr. Dre. After all, it took real balls to tell King George to, essentially, eat a dick. That’s some gangsta shit. To celebrate the day George Washington and his homies decided to hop in the drop-top and do a drive-by on England, we’ve compiled a list of some of the greatest July 4th jamz ever. This mix is guaranteed to get your party started and have everyone drunkenly screaming “Ooh, that’s my shit!”  at some point.

Snoop Doggy Dogg? Snoop Dogg? Snoop Lion? He doesn’t even know.

“Who Am I (What’s My Name)” – Snoop Doggy Dogg

Time to sit back and unwind to the time Will Smith was a rapper.

“Summertime” – Will Smith

As a rule for all parties, one should have an entire bloc of music dedicated to Biggie:


“Mo Money, Mo Problems”


“Big Poppa”

“One More Chance/Stay with Me”

California knows how to party. Take a note, rest of America.

“California Love” – 2Pac

But B2M’s doing a little East Coast swing.

“Motownphilly” – Boyz II Men

This one-hit wonder really missed an opportunity to brand this as a Halloween song.

 My Boo” – Ghost Town DJs

With a Rolly on the arm and I’m pouring Chandon…or in your case, a Casio on the arm pouring PBR into a plastic cup.

“Drop It Like It’s Hot” – Snoop

The partystarter to end all partystarters. Therefore, the status of said party is up in the air.

 “This Is How We Do It” – Montell Jordan

An homage to splitting a dime bag. That’s what happens when you mess with that Indo weed. Right, Snoop?

“I Got 5 On It “ – Luniz

Rolling down the street, smoking Indo, sipping on gin and juice. — LAPD arrest report

 “Gin & Juice” – Snoop Doggy Dogg

“You know he’s talking about his dick right?” – Drunk girl at the party

 “Pony” – Ginuwine

Are you that somebody that won’t tell nobody that she’s not just any body?

 “Are You That Somebody” – Aaliyah

Stoner 1: “Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane…nope, it’s just Mary Jane.”

Stoner 2: “Pass da blunt.”

“Real Love (Remix)” – Mary J. Blige f/ Biggie

Never trust a big butt and a smile. Ever.

 “Poison” – Bell Biv Devoe

Usher: “Yeah!”

Lil Jon: “OKAY!”

The End.

 “Yeah!” – Usher f/ Lil Jon

He just crushed a lot. R.I.P.

 “Still Not a Playa” – Big Pun

Ball sweat and skeet-skeeting. The catchiest song about incontinence ever.

 “Get Low” – Lil Jon & The Eastside Boyz

– “I like the way you work it. No diggity. Got to bag it up.”

– “Paper or plastic?”

“No Diggity” – Blackstreet

“I creep around because I need affection…or maybe I’m just kind of a slut. #NBD” — Your Ex

 “Creep” – TLC

All you fly mothers, get on out there and dance.

 “Push It” – Salt n Pepa

If you smoke like Nate Dogg smoked (R.I.P.) you’re high like everyday.

 “Regulate” – Warren G f/ Nate Dogg

A question of eternal relevance.

 “Where the Party At” – Jagged Edge

Cube didn’t even have to use his gat today. Probably because he had to pick his kids up from camp.

 “It Was a Good Day” – Ice Cube

It’s getting hot in here, so kindly remove all articles of clothing. — FBI (Federal Boobie Inspector)

 “Hot in Herre” – Nelly

This is the remix to ignition, hot and fresh out the kitchen. With a bit of parsley for garnish.

 “Ignition (Remix)” – R. Kelly

ODB and Mariah go back like babies and pacifiers. May at least one of them rest in peace.

 “Fantasy (Remix)” – Mariah Carey f/ Ol Dirty Bastard

Beep, beep, who got the keys to the Prius. It’s 2013, show some consideration.

 “The Rain (Supa Dupa Fly)” – Missy Elliott

And they’re not talking Lansbury.

“Murder She Wrote” – Chaka Demus & Pliers
