...and what is this Dre fellow a doctor of, anyway?

There are questions that haunt me when, to borrow George Carlin's phrase, "I'm home alone and the power goes out."

One such question: is there a lyric in all of rap music sillier than Snoop's call, "Dre, creep to the mic like a phantom!" from "Nuthin' But a G Thang?"

The answer: possibly, because I'm also amused by the shout-out in the Geto Boys' "Damn It Feels Good to be a Gangsta:" it *just keeps going.* "I want to send this to everybody out there in Chicago... Louisiana... Florida... California... Missisippi, baby!... Georgia... Ohio... Colorado... Arizona... Vegas... Little Rock, Arkansas." Really, how special can the recipients of a shout-out feel when you're delivering it to eight entire states and three additional metropolitan areas?

I think the Geto Boys' shout-out goes to around a hundred million people, possibly making it a world record. But I could well be wrong.
