Song of the Day: Birdman feat. Drake, Lil Wayne
The best track from Priceless, a 2009 Birdman release that went almost totally unnoticed. This gem has the sustained, hearty pulse of a mixtape and the polish that sounds like everyone involved enjoyed the time and critical distance rarely given your average street installment.
This continues to become a more reliable format: Drake hook, Birdman creative direction and nose-to-the-grindstone-ness and Lil Wayne's zany alter-ego. It works here and elsewhere on this record, holder of no fewer than five flip-to tracks.
Check this line: "Richer than the richest/we certified gettin' it..." Genius.
