'90s Hip-Hop Jam of the Week: Wreckz-N-Effect, "Rump Shaker"
This was probably not the best video for an impressionable adolescent to watch, but perhaps it sent me on my uber-feminist path.
Fun fact: My calculus teacher in high school used to reference this song, vaguely, when mentioning us doing math on our TI-82 calculators. It wasn't creepy; it was just hilarious.
Even more fun facts: According to Wikipedia, "'Rump Shaker' is also notable for featuring a verse (performed by Teddy Riley) written by a young Pharrell Williams, who, along with fellow future-Neptune Chad Hugo, contributed additional production work as Teddy Riley's then-protégés."
Williams and Hugo, of course, are in town at 8 p.m. this Sunday night at the Pageant with N.E.R.D. See our feature here.
