"Hot" is the first single from "Milk Me", a 2004 album by East Coast hip hop group The Beatnuts. It was released by Penalty Recordings as a 12 inch and CD single without any b-sides or additional tracks.cite web|last|first=|url=http://www1.gemm.com/search/artist/Beatnuts/Beatnuts/H/|title=Beatnuts "H" music albums for sale|work=Gemm.com|date=|accessdate=2008-07-12] The song is produced by The Beatnuts and features raps by Juju and Psycho Les, as well as ad libs sung by Greg Nice. The song's lyrics are braggadocios, hard-hitting and aggressive. The song's beat is characterized by a fast pounding horn loop and matching drums sampled from "Rock Box" by Run-D.M.C.. The song also features live instrumentation provided by guitarist Eric Krasno and keyboardist Neal Evans.

Although "Hot" failed to chart, it received positive critical attention: Jason Birchmeier of Allmusic and Tom Doggett of RapReviews.com consider it a "standout song".cite web|last=Birchmeier|first=Jason|url =http://allmusic.com/cg/amg.dll?p=amg&sql=10:kifrxqysldke|title=Milk Me Review|work=Allmusic|date=|accessdate=2008-07-12] cite web|last = Doggett|first = Tom| url = http://www.rapreviews.com/archive/2004_08_milkme.html|title=Milk Me Review|work=RapReviews.com|date=2004-08-24|accessdate=2008-07-12] Robert DeGracia of AllHipHop.com describes why the track stands out: quote| ["Hot" is] a catchy Part Two to "Turn it Up" that serves as another 'Nuts and Greg Nice collabo; fully composed with their famed horns and staccato kicks, the track translates typical Beatnut trapeze and trampoline circus sounds into instant beat wizardry.cite web|last=DeGracia|first=Robert|url=http://allhiphop.com/stories/reviews/archive/2004/09/01/18134252.aspx|title=Milk Me Review|work=AllHipHop.com|date=2004-09-01|accessdate=2008-07-12]

The popularity of "Hot" earned it a spot on the 2005 soundtrack for the film "King's Ransom". In 2004, a HipHopSite.com exclusive remix of "Hot" was released in 7" format.cite web|last|first=|url=http://www.discogs.com/release/1090798|title="Hot (Remix) / Whose to Blame"|work=Discogs.com|date=|accessdate=2008-07-12]
