15. LL Cool J, "Doin' It" (1996)
As far as filth goes, "Doin' It" sounds every bit as naughty as Khia's "My Neck, My Back (Lick It)"—just without the explicit lyrics. That's thanks in no small part to lady rapper LeShaun, who murmurs its restless hook ("Doin' it an' doin' it an' doin' it well"). That LL Cool J responds with a firm, manly rejoinder ("I represent Queens, she was raised out in Brooklyn") only adds fuel to the fire. Fittingly, LeShaun does not appear in the video, because she was pregnant at the time.
