"Pink Cookies in a Plastic Bag Getting Crushed by Buildings" is a single from LL Cool J's fifth album, 14 Shots to the Dome. It was released on June 1, 1993, along with "Back Seat (of My Jeep)". The original version was produced by Marley Marl; however the more popular remix was produced by Marley Marl and Easy Mo Bee. The song reached #96 on the Billboard Hot 100 and #34 on Hot R&B Songs.[1]

Thirty different hip-hop artists are mentioned in the song's lyrics:

I'll take 30 electric chairs, and put 'em in a classroom, 30 MCs, and set 'em free from their doom.

The title of the song came to the artist at random and is not, despite popular thought, a reference to sex:
