The 100 Best Lil Wayne Songs

75. Lil Wayne f/ D. Smith "Shoot Me Down" (2008)

Producer: D. Smith
Album: Tha Carter III
Label: Cash Money, Universal Motown

Feeling like the spiritual successor to Tha Carter II's "Shooter," "Shoot Me Down" is another heavy-handed and lumbering beat (with actual live instrumentation, no less) dropped in the middle of an otherwise pop-leaning sample and synth-oriented rap album. Wayne mixes a little bit of Jay-Z style self-aggrandization mixed with his own standard near-sensical tangent running ("My picture should be in the dictionary/Next to the definition of definition/Because repetiton is the father of learning/And son I know your barrell burnin' but/Please don't shoot me down") to great effect.
