Looking for an Old-School Rap Song Suggestion for a Cover Band Medley

So my cover band is putting together an "Old School Rap Medley" to feature older rap from the late 80s and early 90s - mostly songs that were fairly bad yet incredibly popular. Songs that you would diss in public, but you know you could recite all the words to them if there was a money bet on the line.

WELL ... we have four songs picked and need a fifth. That's where you come in.

1. "It's Tricky" by Run DMC
2. "Can't Touch This" by MC Hammer
3. "Ice ice Baby" by Vanilla Ice
4. "Baby Got Back" by Sir Mix-a-Lot
5 . _________________________ ?

Give me some suggestions!

By the way, thanks for your comments on my last cover band question: Should we play "Jack & Diane" or "Hurts So Good"? The latter was the clear winner and the one I was leaning toward anyway.
