5. BUBBA SPARXXX: THE FIRST WHITE GUY TO SAY “TWERK”?

After a few years of failed attempts at replicating his success, the Timbaland protégé Bubba Sparxxx made a major dent on the charts with his 2002 LP Dark Days, Bright Nights. Tim and Bubba teamed up on the deep cut “Twerk A Little,” which was never released as a single, but featured one of the more underrated beats of Timbaland’s storied career.
