iron man.

he's insane.

at his prime, unbeatable.

his video game on nes is top 5 of all-time.

we all know this stuff.

he's also been mentioned in a billzillion rap songs.

wex wednesday's presents some of those references:

1. LL Cool J on "I'm Bad": I'm like Tyson, icin/I'm a soldier at war/Makin sure you don't try to battle me no more
2. Kool G. Rap on "Poison": With Polo and while he's slicin/I'll turn the mic's last name into Tyson
3. Nas on "The World is Yours": They locked the champ up leavin my brains in handcuffs/Headed for Indiana, stabbin women like the phantom
4. Big Daddy Kane on "Put Your Weight On It": My sharp tongue is like a license/I strike like Mike Tyson, I be icin
5. Ghostface Killah on "Holocaust": Unfaithfully married to rap, we been engaged for 12 years/Tyson bit Holyfield ear, we love the sport

there's more, what are they!

honorable mentions to the fresh prince, canibus, spoonie gee, etc.

be easy.

It doesn't mention Tyson by name, but gives him a show of support:

"I'm a legend, on top of that I'm livin'/Now you look booty like that bum Miss Givens."

You spurred one of my Top 5 lines in hip-hop:

"I'm on some Mike Tyson ex-wife shit kid/Thats how I'm livin'/Cause when I start robbin'/You'd better start givin'"
