The Popdust Files: 00s one-hit wonders, J-Kwon

#8 J-Kwon, “Tipsy” (2004)

What It Was: A “Grindin‘” for the masses, a song with a similarly hard-hitting beat to the Clipse’s street anthem but with a significantly less hard-hitting lyric about partying and underage drinking, capped with the unforgettable singalong chorus “Errrrbody in the club gettin’ tips’!!” If not for Usher’s “Yeah!!,” it would’ve been the Summer Jam of 2004, and still peaked at No. 2 on the charts.

What Happened Next: Despite the massiveness of the song’s hook, there wasn’t a ton on “Tipsy” to recommend J-Kwon himself as a rapper, and with the whole St. Louis moment in rap nearing its end by ’04, there wasn’t a ton of interest in hearing what else ‘Kwon had to say. J-Kwon did have one further Top 40 cameo as a guest rapper on Bow Wow’s “Fresh Azimis,” but when your biggest successes come in supporting roles on second-tier Bow Wow singles, your best days are probably behind you.

Where Are They Now?: J-Kwon has continued to release albums, and made a noble attempt to re-capture the one-hit magic with “Tipsy ’09,” but has basically fallen off the face of the earth as a public figure. (His last tweet was an “R.I.P. Whitney Houston” tribute back in February.) Hope the party was worth it, J.
