So as I listened to the "ass breath pill" skit on Coup's "Pick a Bigger Weapon" LP today, it became even more obvious that skits on Hip Hop albums is something that is widespread and uniquely related to Hip Hop. It's a comedy routine, born courtesy of De La Soul, and since that time it's been done, (sometimes overdone) and done again on possibly hundreds of Hip Hop albums. (hundreds might be an underestimate.)

So I'll bounce it off yall...

Does "skits" deserve a nomination for the next version of the Periodic Table of Hip Hop Elements? Version 3.0 is a ways off, but what's your opinion on the nomination?

I vote yes, even though that most of them are not funny and just filler to get the track count higher.

I hear you, a lot of em are filler due to a time void, but some of them definitely belong on the album and make the album what it is. IE De La's first two albums. Actually even their later skits "Ghost weed" etc are hilarious, at least the first time you hear em. There are some really funny ones out there that are well played with the right sound effects, I like em for the most part.

I like a lot of them too. I can't remember which Ghostface album it's on, but the one giving directions is funny as hell
