Freak Nasty

Freak Nasty was hardly a talented rapper — he was clumsy and often tripped over his rhymes — but he did manage to write an incessantly catchy song with "Da Dip." After his first album, Freak Nasty, failed to make an impact in 1994, the Southern-based rapper seemed destined to fade away. Instead, he and his production team concocted the ridiculously simple and naggingly catchy "Da Dip," driven mostly by a bass groove and lyrical hook. The single was featured on Freak Nasty's second album, Controversee...That's Life...And That's the Way It Is, which was released in the fall of 1996. Over the winter and spring of 1997, "Da Dip" became an underground hit, eventually crossing over into the mainstream in the summer of 1997. It stayed on the charts for weeks, but the album itself never took off. Dowhatchafeel appeared the following year, and in the spring of 2000, Freak Nasty resurfaced with Which Way Is Up. During the rest of the decade, he released the albums Freak Nasty World and Freaknotic/Crunk City.


Freak Nasty began his career as a DJ and a hip hop producer. He was one of two, in a group called PMW. He then found success in Atlanta, Georgia with his first album Freak Nasty, selling close to 300,000 units. His next album Controversee... That's Life... And That's the Way It Is, was a much bigger hit and sold over 5 million units,[citation needed] mainly due to his smash hit single "Da' Dip", which peaked at number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. In 2007, the single "Do It Just Like a Rockstar", peaked at number 45 on the Billboard Hot 100.
