22. Birdman f/ Drake & Lil Wayne "Money to Blow" (2009)
Producer: Drumma Boy
Label: Cash Money, Universal Motown
Once a constant scene stealer, Wayne is becoming more comfortable in handing the reins to his successors as he ages. "Money To Blow" was purely a showcase for Cash Money's new golden boy Drake, who spits strange punchlines about Captain Hook and his car's roof that only sort of make sense.
Birdman's contribution is negligible and Wayne delivers a scant eight bars, but he says it best: "We gon' be all right if we put Drake on every hook." This is Baby and Weezy on the self-congratulatory tip, playing the background and letting their artist stack up the money for them. They've probably earned that luxury, though.
