Rap songs that will fill this skinny white boy with swagger as he gets ready to go out.

note from chezbroie: Well, these always worked for me swagger-wise - and they still do. I went through my 12" Collection for some of these so a couple of these tracks might be hard to find today. But that will surely add to the
swagger. Most of these are pretty dangerous street stuff. Exactly the right choice for us white boys.
