Can anyone help me find the name of this Rock/Rap song? (80s/90s)

I heard this song ONCE on the radio (it's an older-ish song) and it was awesome, can someone help me find it???

 

-It was old-school rock/rap

-probably 1980s-1990s (unironic use of the word 'Funky' so I'm almost positive)

-I'm almost ENTIRELY sure the Beastie Boys were in it, I listened to every song of theirs and couldn't find it

-There's another rapper singing

-"The Funky Irma Dena" Was what I thought how the lyrics went in the chorus.

-"The Funky _____ _____" is a definite

-The syllables of that line were 1, 2, 2, 2

-The line following "The funky..." was a name (I think)

-Popular to breakdance to "back in the day" (according to my mom) So it's got a fast rhythm

-Both (All?) singers were male

 

Not these Songs:

"Brass Monkey" Beastie Boys

"Triple Trouble"- Beastie Boys (though the style is similar)

"Hold it Now, Hit it"- Beastie Boys

"Girls"-Beastie Boys

"Intergalactic"-Beastie Boys

"No Sleep Till Brooklyn-Beastie Boys

"Sabotage"-Beastie Boys

"She's On It"- Beastie Boys

"Too Many Rappers- Beastie Boys

"You Gotta Fight (For Your Right to Party)"- Beastie Boys

 

Honestly, I went through so many songs and albums and so many web searches and NOTHING, it's killing me, any 80s-90s enthusiasts know what song I'm talking about? I'd really appreciate it! thanks!
