Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

23. DJ Khaled f/ Drake, Rick Ross and Lil Wayne "I'm On One" (2011)

Album: We the Best Forever
Producer: T-Minus, Nikhil S, Noah "40" Shebib
Label: We the Best/Terror Squad/Cash Money/Universal Motown

Drake declared himself Captain Hook early in his career, and has stayed steady handing out choruses to damn near every artist in the industry ever since. Of course, on a DJ Khaled record, the name on the cover doesn't mean much, the results sound like Drake featuring Drake. And the song that ran the summer of 2011, and set Aubrey up nicely for Take Care's triumph that fall, showcased him at his most blithe and arrogant, mixing his trademark melodic style in the hook's first half with the anthemic refrain of the second half, and even slipping in some uncharacteristic 2x-time flows.
