Hip-Hop's Catchiest Choruses Since 2000

28. Fat Joe f/ Lil Wayne "Make It Rain" (2006)

Album: Me, Myself & I
Producer: Scott Storch
Label: Terror Squad/Imperial

Contrary to what he might tell you, Lil Wayne didn't coin "bling bling," and he sure didn't invent "making it rain," but he sure has a knack for grabbing onto the zeitgeist and writing the indelible hook that will end up forever associated with such slang terms. Weezy eventually threw a verse on the all-star remix, but on the original "Make It Rain" he just held down the hook, which was so huge that it was all he needed to do. Maybe Fat Joe is just desperate for any chorus that'll keep him on the radio, or maybe he's just the brilliant A&R who taught DJ Khaled everything he knows about picking out the raw materials for a hit.
