Summer Mixtape, Track 6: "Ghetto Superstar" - Pras (f. Ol' Dirty Bastard and Mya)
Back in 1998 this song was inescapable. I certainly couldn't escape it, at least.
I did that thing where, after graduating high school, I went to the beach for a week. (Well, I only went for a few days because I came back early for a Caps/Sabres Eastern Conference Finals game. Yes, I was really cool in high school.) Anyway, the people from my graduating class had a serious obsession with this song, so I ended up hearing it about 20 times per hour over those few days. How can I hear a four-minute song 20 times per hour, you may ask? Because even before it was done, they started it again, from the beginning.
Pras was clearly the third best member of the Fugees and the poor guy is only the third best thing about his lone solo hit. Local product Mya provides the memorable hook while Ol' Dirty Bastard checks in with some surprisingly focused verses. And if we're taking the video into account, Pras drops down another spot because Halle Berry's in it.
