The 100 Best Lil Wayne Songs

19. Lil Wayne f/ Cory Gunz "6 Foot 7 Foot" (2011)

Producer: Bangladesh
Album: The Carter IV
Label: Young Money, Cash Money, Universal Republic

Similar to his 2008 single "A Milli" (with the exact same producer Bangladash), countless rappers hastily jumped on the instrumental of "6 Foot 7 Foot" but couldn't construct a record as monumental as Lil Wayne's. His energy was palpable, his delivery was relentless, and the rhymes were charismatically ferocious ("You know I'mma ball 'til they turn off the field lights/The fruits of my labor, I enjoy 'em while they still ripe").

This was all done over a zany Harry Belafonte sample which tipped the record into quintessential listening for Weezy fans. Standing 5'6'', Dwayne Carter reigned over his peers like a lyrical titan.
