Drake – “Barry Bonds”
Leave it to Drake to make one of the more lovey-dovey lines about Seinfeld in rap music. Here, we have bars that either depict a future of Drake with another girl— representing a couple as strong as Jerry and Elaine’s— or his lyrical energy bonding with the beat, thus representing that coupling.
It’s what you all been waiting for ain’t it / Your weekly entertainment / For me to get a hold of this beat / Go ahead claim it / I’m about to paint a picture / You niggas go ahead frame it / Since we gettin’ Seinfeld / On some Jerry and Elaine shit
Either way, dude was mad hype about ripping that “Barry Bonds” beat by Kanye.
Wale – “The Mixtape About Nothing”
Yo, I really didn’t want to write about Wale that much, but I also can’t ignore the fact that dude made an entire mixtape based around Seinfeld.
Wale dropped A Mixtape About Nothing back in 2008 with 10.Deep Clothing and it was the primary reason why Wale became relevant in the first place. While there aren’t any lyrics directly referencing and relating to Seinfeld, the entire tape rips samples from the show and laces them together as interludes and introductions to each song. The tape also has track titles similar to Seinfeld episode names; each song title begins with the word “The.”
