Today marks the 10th anniversary of Quarashi's Jinx, one of my favourite white rap albums. It is now eligible for induction into the Adam Riff™ White Rap Hall of Fame.

Kurt: No MC 900 Ft. Jesus?
Jon: I wouldn't classify his albums as white rap.
Jon: According to Wikipedia, Snow is technically a dancehall artist. And even if he was technically a white rapper, Snow?!
Kurt: You inducted ICP! The Seven Society this ain't.
Drew Carey, a longtime Snow fan, had Snow record a reggae version of The Drew Carey Show theme song, "Moon Over Parma," for the series' eighth and ninth seasons. [source]
A LONGTIME SNOW FAN.
Jon: I've grown to like Check Your Head the most. Anyway, the Beastie Boys' first three albums are the Star Wars: Episodes IV-VI of white rap — and their last three albums are Episodes I-III.
Kurt: What are Ill Communication and Hello Nasty then?
Jon: Indiana Jones films?
