"Da' Dip" is a song written and recorded by American hip-hop artist Freak Nasty. It was released in July 1996 as the lead single from his second album, Controversee...That's Life...And That's the Way It Is. To date, "Da' Dip" is Freak Nasty's only top 40 hit, labeling him a one-hit wonder.

Upon its release in the summer of 1996, "Da' Dip" failed to make an impact on the Billboard charts, charting low on both the R&B and rap charts. The song, however, managed to break through into the mainstream the following year, reaching number 15 on the Billboard Hot 100. "Da' Dip" was then certified gold by the RIAA on April 10, 1997 before reaching platinum certification on June 3 of that year for sales of over one million copies.

Music video[edit]

The song's music video was shot at Henry Grady High School in Atlanta.
