The 100 Best Lil Wayne Songs

18. Lil Wayne "Something You Forgot" (2007)

Producer: Unknown
Album: The Drought Is Over 2 (The Carter 3 Sessions)
Label: Young Money

The great thing about Wayne's intravenous line to the streets by way of the mixtapes is that it left no time for second guesses. Ideas that any budget-conscious A&R would squash actually materialize and hit the market before you can say the word "clearance."

Which brings us to one of the weirdest Wayne sample sources of all time-Heart's tacky 1985 mega-hit "What About Love?" Weirder still is how hard it actually sounds. Rather than aim for a Dipset-style tongue-in-cheek '80s beat, the uncredited producer just pushes Heart's inherent drama to the forefront with "Something You Forgot." Wayne does his part to turn up the tension with his vivid regrets over a lost love.
