Lil' Flip's highest charting hit was "Sunshine," and probably the most accessible one for the mainstream radio audience, but it was "The Way We Ball" that really set it off for the rapper in the South. The Third Coast anthem is about five minutes of Lil' Flip bragging about riding on blades, lean, and other stuff Texans might find cool: "Right now me and Hump negotiatin' to buy the Rockets/We might buy the Comets - name it, I done it." The wonkiness of the beat is almost silly, but trust the man who flipped Ms. Pacman sounds into a chart-topper to execute it perfectly.
