"Top Billin'" is a song by American hip hop duo Audio Two. Produced by the group and Stetsasonic member Daddy-O, the song consists of a heavily modified drum pattern sampled from "Impeach the President" by The Honey Drippers, and its "Go Brooklyn" chant is sampled from "Go Stetsa I" by Stetsasonic. It appeared on Audio Two's 1988 album What More Can I Say?, itself named after a line from "Top Billin'".

Originally released as the B-side of the single "Make It Funky", "Top Billin'" went on to surprising levels of success and is the group's signature song. The song has been sampled or quoted in over two hundred songs. Audio Two would go on to reference "Top Billin'" themselves numerous times, most notably naming their two albums after lines from the song. Due to the group's inability to produce a single that matched "Top Billin'"'s huge success, they are classified as a one-hit wonder.
