words by Jonathan Hailey
“The Hangover” movie trilogy won audiences over by pushing the limits of how much trouble a group of guys could possibly get into the night before one of them gets married. Although Phil, Stu, Doug, and Alan (played by Bradley Cooper, Ed Helms, Justin Bartha, and Zach Galifianakis respectively) needed clues to retrace their steps after forgetting what happened the night before, we couldn’t forget about all the Hip-Hop songs used as the soundtrack for spiking drinks with roofies, stealing Mike Tyson’s beloved tiger, kidnapping monks and having gangsters chase you around the world threatening to kill you.
We’re not sure when hip-hop became the soundtrack to debauchery but it’s clear and evident in these films. Let’s take a look at the history of Hip-Hop songs featured in “The Hangover” trilogy and make sure you keep your drink covered at all times. You know how Alan gets down.
