“Yao Ming” F. 2 Chainz & Lil Wayne

    Aside from several goofball punch lines related his height, whatever this track has to do with Yao Ming is beyond me. But the Houston Rockets center clearly influenced David Banner in his creation of “Yao Ming,” a Southern carnival of booming production and typically over-the-top rhymes. The worst bars of them all come from Lil Wayne, who seems so uninspired as of late with his wordplay that it’s hard to know where to start with his verse. That attempt at the Army’s “hooah” is pretty laughable, as is the ditch punch line, but he still sounds pretty good over Banner’s huge beat. So does 2 Chainz, aka hip-hop’s latest go-to guest MC.
