14. Lil Wayne “Nightmares of the Bottom” [First Verse]
Best Line: “Everybody wanna be fly 'til you swat 'em” Producer: Keshown "Golden Child" Cassell Album: Tha Carter IV Label: Young Money/Cash Money/Universal
Slowing things down a bit, Wayne rehashed his sing-songy style (no Auto-Tune!) for the introspective “Nightmares of the Bottom.” Nobody wants to fall off, as Wayne makes evident in his first verse.
While we're big fans of this lead-off verse, Wayne seemed to cherish it even more, as he performed it all summer long throughout the I Am Still Music Tour, months prior to C4 dropping. Heck, he even premiered it for the masses during his MTV Unplugged performance. Great minds think alike!
