Rappers Love Seinfeld

Rappers Love “Seinfeld”

On July 5, 1989 the very first episode of Seinfeld aired on NBC. Back then, with the average home only sporting 27 channels, Seinfeld’s debut year Nielson rating was an 8.0. Surprisingly enough, today an 8.0 rating would mean it was tied with “Sunday Night Football” for television’s biggest national show. In comparison, The Walking Dead would be a 6.8, which wouldn’t have made the Top 30 in the summer of 1989.

Words cannot describe just how deep of an impact the television show had in the entertainment industry. From its offshoot of Curb Your Enthusiasm to the Writers Guild of America naming the series the No. 2 Best Written TV Series of All Time (second to The Sopranos), Seinfeld still reigns supreme with its legacy even after 25 years of initially airing.

Of course, that legacy bleeds through rap as well. Here’s a breakdown of the rappers who referenced Seinfeld in their bars.
