The 10 Best Rap Lyrics About Hot Dogs

Enjoy some #HotDogWeek tunes with extra mustard.


In the deep, endlessly fascinating history of rap lyrics about food, the humble frankfurter makes its fair share of appearances. Yes, it is sometimes used as a euphemism for a rapper's genitalia, but you won't see any of those lyrics on this list because, quite frankly, they are terrible.

Thankfully, there are a few more interesting hot-dog tropes in the hip-hop canon: The use of bargain-bin wieners as a marker of socioeconomic class, the beloved pun on Nathan (as in Nathan's Famous) and nothing, and the general New York MC obsession with Muslims who don't eat pork. Explore the ways hot dogs can bolster a hot sixteen as we count down the 10 great hot dog lyrics in rap history—the ideal soundtrack to carry you through #HotDogWeek.
