50. Future f/ Lil Wayne "Karate Chop (Remix)"
Album: Future Hendrix
Producer: Metro Boomin
Despite the unfortunate repercussions surrounding a certain offensive line that was added, then subtracted from "Karate Chop," the song survives as a testament to why Future stays changing music. Though his flow may have been reminiscent of Lil Reese's cutting lyric-darts, only the askronaut could dismantle the cosmic beat in a way that would have Carl Sagan chopping. Bricks. Like. Karate. He turned simple martial arts references into ad-lib gold, no Tae Bo hoe, though. —Alexander Gleckman
