If there was an award for catchiest song in hip hop history then Double XX Posse have to be a nominee.  When the crew from Jersey City dropped the song ” Not Gonna Be Able To Do It” in 1992 it automatically became the catch phrase for any type of rejection. “Hey homie, can I hold $20” nah homie IM NOT GONNA BE ABLE TO DO IT. The song reached #1 on the billboard hot rap singles chart and was even featured on an episode of the sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. The video was dope too, it looked like they had the whole Jersey City in the video with them. This song will get a rise out of any 90s hip hop head, just say it “can you do it” and the response will be ” im not gon be able to do it”
