2004 wasn’t a great year for Halle’s acting resume, as her superhero film Catwoman bombed with viewers and critics. But 2004 was a record year for her in Hip Hop, earning more mentions than we have room to list.
Everyone from Nas to Kanye West to Lil Wayne used Halle in their rhymes as a standard of beauty, but Jadakiss was still holding a grudge for her infamous scene in Monsters Ball. “Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar?,” asked Kiss on his hit single “Why?”
“Headed to the chapel, my niggas laughin, and it’s baffling
Cuz just a year ago, it’s weird though, I knew I’d get married
To who I knew not,
Thought of snatchin Halle up from the dreadlock”
“What’s scary to me is Henny makes girls look like Halle Berry to me”
Tha Carter II
“And I don’t like short-haired girls, no not really
If I do, she gotta look like the old Halle Berry”
Straight Outta Ca$heville
“The reason niggas like Eric Benét probably can’t stand me
Cause I know money will make Halle Berry come out them panties, bitch!”
Kiss Of Death
“Why Halle have to let a white man pop her to get a Oscar?
Why Denzel have to be crooked before he took it?”
