Submitted for your consideration (mad late): Chukky Okobi's MySpace Page. It's not a surprise that he raps, and that a lot of it is shiny club shit, but I gotta mention "Steelers '06: World Champs." You just don't hear enough tracks about winning the Super Bowl that are strongly inspired by MOP's classic 1996 collaboration with Kool G. Rap, "Stick To Ya Gunz." (a) (mp3 coming)

(Let me pre-empt the "hey remember " moment, because I love me some Shaq Diesel, especialy the Wu-Tangy "No Hook" and the ever-so-1994 "Biological Didn't Bother." And his inexplicable beef with Mad Skillz (and, later, Ben Wallace) might be the finest moment of his career. Dude's fuckin with Kay Slay now, and I think it's safe to say Bun B, Shaq and Papoose makes for the strangest combination fathomable. Non-rap dudes: this is the juxtapositional equivalent of a steak served with pork chop and covered in little toy ducks.)

Why should you care about this Albanian hip-hop track? Because Edi Rama is the mayor of the capital of Albania. Sayin.

a) For that matter, you don't hear enough back-up centers working with Pittsburgh rap fixture Ron Noodles either.
