Arguably the first multi-platinum hip-hop song, “Rapper’s Delight” is seen by many as the beginnings of what was then predicted by the industry to be a short-lived “fad” genre. Phish more or less performed the song with Kid Rock in Vegas on 9/29/00, with Fishman contributing a largely improvised verse on his knees about the Kid’s firm member. (Don’t ask…)
