"Hip Hip Songs in Major Keys"


          

Have been thinking about this for quite a while, and had to really rack my brain to think of any. Obviously, almost all rap is primarily in minor keys. Is this because it's hard to make major key beats that aren't corny?? Please list some good ones if you can.

One I thought of off the top that is obviously in a major key is "Can I Kick It" by tribe
Another is "H to the Izzo", I'm sure De La's prob got at least a few
