A Year of Lil Wayne: A DJ Khaled Treasury

This may be stupid, but it is also great.

Day 145: "Fed Up" feat. Usher, Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Drake, and Lil Wayne – DJ Khaled, Victory, 2010

Man, you know what was a great era? When DJ Khaled wasn't a Snapchat celebrity yet but still managed to assemble these crazy all-star anthems. God bless him for going through the trouble to do it. The problem with rap now is that you have nobody making the equivalent posse cut to 2010 Young Jeezy, Rick Ross, Drake, Lil Wayne, and Usher on the same song, then making a video for it that involves a speed boat caper and a helicopter and a secret package in briefcase, which turns out to just be a pair of mid-tier headphones (presumably Wayne is not in the video because he was in prison, but I'm including it below because it is awesome).

This may be stupid, but it is also great.

Here's the obligatory Lil Wayne quote: "Got a chest full of heart no tin man." Let's bring back this version of the music industry.
