Roadtrip Music: Rap is Crap (I Hate Rap) by Curt Hennig & The West Texas Rednecks (Curt Hennig, The West Texas Rednecks)

Hennig and co actually recorded two songs, Good Ol’ Boys and the more well known Rap is Crap (I Hate Rap). Rap is Crap was released on WCW Mayhem: The Music in 1999 and it goes like this, right here…
