Regina Hall Never Heard Knuck If You Buck Until Recently


While the Black experience is not a monolith, there are a lot of teachings and cultural aspects that we share in common within our community — and one of those things are sacred songs.

There are some songs that have just become a staple within the Black community. From “Outstanding” by the Gap Band to “Back That Azz Up” by Juvenile — these songs have the power to pack a dance floor within seconds.

So, when Regina Hall recently admitted that she’d never heard “Knuck If You Buck” by Crime Mob — another Black bop — while visiting The Breakfast Club, you can imagine the shock.

Regina stars in the new satirical drama Honk for Jesus. Save Your Soul. alongside Sterling K. Brown. And in one scene, the two — who play a beloved pastor and first lady of a megachurch — are seen rapping word-for-word to “Knuck If You Buck” as they drive home.

Deeming the song a “Negro spiritual,” host Charlamagne Tha God openly expressd his disappointment in Regina and Sterling for having to learn the words to the song.

That’s when Regina revealed they not only had to learn the words, but it was actually their first time ever hearing the song.

Regina didn’t realize how popular the song until they filmed the scene. In an attempt to save herself from more embarrassment, the 51-year-old actor revealed she’d already moved to LA by the time the song came out (2004), and since she stopped going to the clubs in her twenties she didn’t get a chance to hear it.

Regina admitted it took her “about two or three days” to learn her verse. She also opened up about the pressure to get it just right as Charlamagne reminded her that that verse in the song is where people really get turnt up.

But even though she received some “flack” for not knowing the song initially, Regina is proud that she can now recite it word-for-word without hesitation.
