Apart from Busta’s monstrous verse, Khaled’s “All I Do Is Win (Remix)” is a as useless as the original mix. It’s still unclear who actually listens to these never ending hobbled together posse cuts or how there piling all these star rappers onto a minor hit and showcase for a fat DJ is at all profitable. But points go to Rick <ahem> Row-Zay for name dropping the “my Honeycomb Hideout is made of all glass” line.
If you weren’t alive in the 80s (insert requisite Ross-is-old joke) was a reference to the old Honeycomb cereal commercials above. The Honeycomb Hideout was a go-to rap reference at one point, probably because it rolls off the tongue and suggests some sort of top secret hangout where crimes can be committed (insert requisite Ross-was-a-CO joke) and honeys can be seduced (insert requisite Ross-is-a-virgin-probably joke). It’s been a long time since we’ve heard anybody rap about Honeycomb Hideouts and this is okay because it really isn’t a very good cereal. But hit the jump anyway to check a for no reason, biting ass Ego Trip style list of five classic and not-classic Honeycomb Hideout rapp lines.
1. Outkast (Big Boi) – “So Fresh, So Clean” (Laface, 2000)
“We can ride out / to the Honeycomb Hideout” (OBV.)
2. Geto Boys (Scarface) – “Cereal Killer” (Rap-A-Lot, 1994)
“Once upon a time at the Honeycomb Hideout / Sugar Bear and Mikey sat alone getting fried out”
3. Triple 6 Mafia (SOG) – “Puttin Hoes On The House” (Prophet, 1993)
“Bitches run up on me / I’m taking them to the Honeycomb / Hideout / hitting it from the back / with their face down”
4. Da Youngstas (A Youngsta) – “Crewz Pop” (East West, 1993)
“I have a Honeycomb Hideout / slides out” (WAT? Da Youngstaz also have a song called “Honeycomb Hideout” about hittin’ skinz and probably mention that shit elsewhere on the album but I thought subjecting you to Youngstas album tracks might be a little much. Plus there are machetes in this video.)
5. AMG – “304 Thang” (Select, 1995)
“Take your hoe to the Honeycomb Hideout / give her this mighty love then I slide out” (THE SAME LINE BUT IT MAKES SENSE)
I truly wanted to work a bad pun about Sean Combs into this post but it’s getting late and my powers are diminishing.
