Meek Mill Enlists A-List Crew for ‘I’ma Boss’ Remix — Listen
The key to being a good boss is delegating responsibility. On the brand new remix to ‘I’ma Boss,’ his breakout single, rapper Meek Mill does just that, letting T.I., Swizz Beatz, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Birdman do most of the heavy lifting.
That’s not to say Mill coasts through the track. The Maybach Music up-and-comer gets in one of the song’s best lines, finishing his verse with a rhyme that asserts his wealth and references a legendary NFL quarterback.
“N—-s really be fraud/ I’ma keep it c-note,” he raps, “Got jewelers down in Miami/ They throw it like Dan Marino.”
Ross starts his verse with the song’s most newsworthy lines, commenting on his recent health scares.
“Had a couple seizures/ Call it minor setbacks,” he spits, downplaying the illness that has sidelined him for much of the last month. “Everybody praying for me/ I respect that.”
Birdman ends with some raps about popping bottles and wearing crowns, but not before Weezy provides a rather vivid metaphor for the success he and his comrades are experiencing.
‘The world is an a–hole,” he says. “And we the next big s—.”
