50. Fabolous f/ Ne-Yo "Make Me Better" (2007)
Album: From Nothin' to Somethin'
Label: Def Jam
Fabolous and Ne-Yo collaborated on 2007's "Make Me Better", which is one of the most uncharacteristically sparse beats of Timbaland's career as a producer. "Make Me Better" is literally just some 808s and the same Egyptian pop sample RZA looped for "Rainy Dayz" on Raekwon's classic Only Built 4 Cuban Linx. Supposedly Tim's beat was originally intended for an Eve project, but she passed for whatever reason, and Fab and Ne-Yo stepped in to make it a genuine nationwide smash.
