"Wild Wild West" is a song by American rapper Kool Moe Dee, released in 1988 as a single from his second studio album How Ya Like Me Now. It was recorded in 1987 at Battery Studios in London, England, produced by Bryan "Chuck" New, LaVaba Mallison, Pete Q. Harris, Teddy Riley and Kool Moe Dee, and released via Jive Records. Its A-side track, "Wild, Wild West", was written and performed by Kool Moe Dee. The single peaked at number 62 on the US Billboard Hot 100[1] and number 4 on the US Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs.[2]

The music video features Kool Moe Dee in a western style town with snow on the ground and with back up dancers. The video was filmed at Wild West City, in Stanhope, NJ.

The song was also featured in an episode of MTV's Rob and Big when Rob and Big added a mini horse to their family. It is also one of the videos appearing on MTV's Beavis & Butthead. It was later sampled by Will Smith in his 1999 song of the same name, featuring Kool Moe Dee (along with Dru Hill).
