20 Good Rap Songs Ruined by Bad Hooks

Lil Wayne "Phone Home" (2008)


"Phone Home" off Lil' Wayne's Tha Carter III starts off strong with Wayne parlaying his "We are not the same, I am a martian" line from the "Party Like a Rockstar" remix into a menacing verse about devouring all competition. Things take a turn when producer Dre (of Cool and Dre) flubs the chorus with, "If you feel like you're the best, go 'head and do the Weezy wee," which makes zero sense and destroys all of the momentum Wayne built up going in. And the chant of "PHONE HOME" is plain old annoying.
