Five Hilarious Hip-Hop Skits
Back in the day, having a skit on your album was a common practice. The skits provided listeners with a glimpse into the mind of the rapper beyond their music. While some skits were serious and emotional, others were hilarious and shocking. You don’t find too many artists doing skits and interludes these days, but take a listen to some of the funniest and most memorable skits that artists gave hip-hop.
Cam’ron: You Right Part 1-3 (Skit)
Although this wasn’t on any of Camron’s albums, the “You Right” skits off of Boss Of All Bosses 2 are definitely some of the funniest from the Dipset leader.

Snoop Dogg: WBallz Skit
A radio drop for 187.4 WBallz introducing Snoop Dogg’s new song made it’s way on to his debut Doggystyle and if that isn’t the best radio DJ intro for the best radio station, someone please put me on to one better.
Kanye West: Lil’ Jimmy Skit
In Kanye’s funny yet educational skit, he introduces Lil’ Jimmy, who’s father died educated, yet broke. “All the regular homeless people have newspaper, and look what I have…”
