Watch & Learn: We peep a video and come up with five things nobody knew.
Boasting more "features" than the shelves of Blockbuster, the video for DJ Khaled‘s "We Takin’ Over" passes the mic between some of the hottest names in hip-hop. T.I.? Akon? Lil’ Wayne? Rick Ross? Fat Joe? Birdman? All present; and all apparently wanted by "The Man." So what happens when you cast rap superstars in what looks like an episode of "Miami Vice?" Here’s what we learned:
- T.I.‘s a standup guy … even when dropping rhymes in the back of a delivery truck … that he’s supposed to be driving
- While speeding down the highway backwards, Rick Ross still raps forwards
- Fat Joe floats. When riding in the back of a cigarette boat.
- When it comes to catchy choruses, Akon can do no wrong. You didn’t need to watch this to learn that, but it’s worth stating. He’s that good.
- While difficult to confirm, it’s a fair guess that Lil’ Wayne is the first MC in the history of hip-hop ever to rhyme “jeweler” with “medulla.”
