"Drop It Like It's Hot" is a 2004 rap number-one hit single by Snoop Dogg featuring Pharrell. Snoop performs the chorus and the second and third verses (of three), while Pharrell performs the first verse.

It was a Billboard number one hit for three weeks from December 11, 2004, making it Snoop Dogg's first number one on the Hot 100. The song also gave him his first number one on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. It has reached #10 in the UK Singles Chart.

It has won at the MTV Australia Video Music Awards 2006 the award for the best hip hop video and a MOBO Award for Best Video in 2005. A remix for this song was also produced by The Neptunes, but only was noticed in the underground scene.

The song gained some critical attention for its very sparse production, which was essentially just tongue clicks, keyboards and a drum machine beat which, compared to much early 2000s rap, was very minimalist. It was nominated at the Grammy Awards of 2005 for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance by a Duo or Group, though it lost both awards to the songs "Jesus Walks" and "Let's Get It Started", respectively. The single is Pharrell's biggest hit worldwide (his highest peaking solo single would be "Frontin'".)

There are two Radio Edits for the song: one is a standard Radio Edit that removes profanities and drug references while the other is an "Extra Clean" Radio Edit that removes gun references as well. Pharell's verse includes a line from his song "Raspy Shit" from his album ''In My Mind'', which was produced by The Neptunes and contains vocal samples from Laid Back's "White Horse".

On December 11, 2009, the song was named the most popular "Rap Song" of the decade by Billboard.
