The 50 Best Drake Songs

35. Drake f/ Jay-Z "Light Up" (2010)

Album: Thank Me Later
Producer: Noah "40" Shebib, Tone Mason

With gated drums bumping in the background, both Hov and Drake go off the handle with extended verses. Jay gives Drake fatherly advice like Vito did to Michael in Godfather, "Drake, here's how they gon come at you/With silly raps for you trying to distract you/In disguise, in the form of a favor." Hov obviously spoke from experience, but the irony is, before long Lil Wayne and Jay-Z were sending barbs back and forth and Drake was taking subliminal shots at Jay-Z and Kanye. Politics as usual. IA
