45. Ace Hood f/ Future & Rick Ross "Bugatti" (2013)
Album: Trials & Tribulations
Producer: Mike WiLL Made It
Label: We the Best Music Group/Cash Money/Universal Republic
Perennial Southern rap underdog Ace Hood may have an early candidate for the biggest banger of 2013, but it belongs to him in name only—the 8 bars of pure unadulterated Nayvadius Cash that happen between Ace and Rick Ross's verses are the reason "Bugatti" is an anthem. Following the slithering first half of the chorus, Future erupts into a hoarse refrain of "I woke up in a new Bugatti"—a Kafkaesque fever dream in which he sounds just as likely confused and horrified as excited to open his eyes in an unfamiliar foreign whip. Is he sleeping in the driver's seat on a stakeout with his Haitian crew? Is he so paranoid about the haters he's collected since he got rich that he can't stand to leave his prized possession in the driveway unattended? The world may never know.
