Producer: Lex Luger
Album: Teflon Don
"B.M.F. (Blowin' Money Fast)" changed both the sound of rap and the trajectory of Rick Ross' career. It's the moment Rozay's voice went from sluggish drawl to his most valuable asset and his grunt ad-lib (seemingly a spontaneous gesture at the time) became his signature move. Although Lex Luger had previously produced Waka Flocka Flame's “Hard In Da Paint” as well as Ross' “MC Hammer”—all of which featured the same sonic makeup—”B.M.F.” was bigger, better, and the most influential of the bunch.
The song finds Rick Ross at the height of his delusional grandeur; re-imagining his life as real life kingpin Big Meech when we're all painfully aware of Rozay's past as a corrections officer. But then again, that's actually what makes the song accessible: We all dream of being an untouchable kingpin who pulls up to the club in a triple black Rolls Royce and proceeds to pop bottles. But we're just us. If Rozay is delusional so is every single clubgoer whose ever screamed the immortal refrain “I think I'm Big Meech!” None of us are actually Big Meech, but it feel good to say so.
