Every Song Mentioned In Lil’ Rick’s “Hit After Hit”
As part of his roll out for this year, Rick dropped “Hit After Hit.” It opens up with the legendary entertainer boasting “Every damn year you know I coming with a hit,” a bold, yet truthful, claim that not many other artistes (new or established) can make.
Over a booming production – which is typical Rick(the song is produced by him and frequent collaborator Dwain ‘Dwaingerous’ Antrobus) – he cleverly references past song titles and lyrics; documenting his career and backing up his earlier declaration with as much hits as he has aliases.
After breaking down the lyrics, I compiled all twenty-eight(28) songs mentioned below. There are obviously more that could’ve made the cut, but as Chihuahua said “Can’t call all I int got much time.”

“From ‘Hard Wine’ days I did smashing it/Ruff wukking, and jucking, and lashing it/Inspecting bumpers and attacking it”
“With some waistline energy/Jones/Wuk up/Work, work/Guh down, come up”
“Girls gone wild down behind the truck/’Can’t Wait’ had the highway tun up”
Listen to the full version of “Down Behind De Truck”here
“All like ‘Mash Up And Buy Back’ is hit/’Hypa Dawg’ had ya wukking up quick/Remember ‘Look how the glamour girls dem form a line’?…”
“’Do fa Do’ left the place in a mess/Which one ah these girls wukking up the best?”
“Gal tip pon it tip pon it/Ahhh I like myself.”
“I come to juck down gal with ease/First in the fete and the last man to leave”
“’I cant walk pon the road as I like lately’/ I talking bout hits like these”
“’We Surviving’ bruk down Crop Over/’Travellers’ mash up Congaline”
‘Travellers’ is a track from Rick’s second album Challenge, which was released in 1999. The album is available on Amazon.
“Had girls bout dey wukking up sick/I had to tell them like, behave pon it!”
“But, no other girl can bubble like she/I love how she move those hips”
“All like ‘Crazy People’ is hit/’Big Hail’! mash up the district”
