I have an econ project that is all about black market business  The project requires that each member of our group speaks for 3 and 1/3 minutes.  I decided it would be helpful to play songs that last 3 and 1/3 minutes in the background so that each member knows when their time is up.  Ultimately, I want 3 thug songs that last 3 and 1/3 minutes.  As long as I can get them without profanity, they are fine.  I'm looking for the most gangster songs I can find.  They should be talking about drug dealing, weapons dealing, prostitution, illegal immigration, etc.  Any help is appreciated!

Why rap?

1. "White Lightning," George Jones
2. "Moonshiner," Uncle Tupelo
3. "Daddy's Moonshine Still," Dolly Parton
4. "Mississippi Mud," Hank Williams III
5. "Chug-A-Lug," Roger Miller
6. "Where The Devil Don't Stay," Drive By Truckers
7. "Rocky Top," Osborne Brothers
8. "Mountain Dew," Grandpa Jones
9. "Copper Kettle," Chet Atkins
10. "Casey Jones," Grateful Dead
11. "Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds," The Beatles
12. "Mary Jane's Last Dance," Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers

Moonshine has come back into vogue recently - have some fun with classic country songs about it. Plus a few others about drugs without profanity. You could probably toss in "Hotel California" for its veiled drug references, too. Have fun. :D

Though if you have to have rap, Grandmaster Flash's "White Lines" ought to fit the bill.

Here ya go. Song about drinking, being high, popping pills, and violence. (And it's HARD AS ***)
 
One of my favorites as of late.
 
EDIT: Only thing that's mildly bad about it is the fact he uses the word 'piss' in the second verse.
 
Another one about violence, guns mentioned, dark and hard. Pretty sure it's clean.

More Violence music. More about War than the others, but still guns and killing, and what not.
