Thirteen years ago, Lil Wayne delivered Tha Carter III, an album that has come to be widely regarded as a classic. Though it’s not quite universally acclaimed as the definitive Carter project, with the first and second both holding loyal fanbases, there are many who would call it Wayne’s magnum opus. While that’s a discussion for another day, it feels appropriate to highlight one of the project’s many gems, given that it’s a milestone occasion and all.

Though there are many potential standouts to choose from, there’s something alluring about Weezy’s introspective slow-burner “Shoot Me Down.” A calm before the storm type of joint, Weezy’s methodical flow drives his punchlines home with clarity. “I spit Alcatraz bars, I know / and D-boys is the only Alphabet Boys,” he spits, over a smoldering guitar riff. “I know Got a .380 on my waist and Rambo back home.” While lacking the urgency of some of the album’s standout singles, “Shoot Me Down” feels unique in comparison, a rare moment of contemplation for the mile-a-minute Martian.

Lou Williams - Big Tuh (ft. Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz)

[Intro: Lil Wayne]
Open up your hearts, people
Page one, chapter one, verse motherfucking one
Yeah, uh-huh
I’m drinking hot tea, bitch
Feel me

[Verse 1: Lil Wayne]
Yeah, now if you let me, you won’t regret me
Shit, if you let me, you won’t forget me
Remember? And if you don’t then ponder
Hold up, bow! bow! there’s a reminder
I ain’t kinda hot, I’m sauna
I sweat money, and the bank is my shower
Haha, and that pistol is my towel
Haha, so stop sweating me, coward
And I would die for ours
Ride for hours, supply the flowers
This is history in the making
Now shut the fuck up and let me make it

[Chorus: D. Smith & Lil Wayne]
Please don’t shoot me down, ’cause I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m higher
Please don’t shoot me down
‘Cause I’m flying, I’m higher
I swear this tea is at a real good temperature right now
So am I, yeah, yeah

[Verse 2: Lil Wayne]
I spit Alcatraz bars, I know
And D-boys is the only Alphabet Boys I know
Got a .380 on my waist and Rambo back home
No more bandana ’round my dome, bandana in my right pocket
Bitch, I’m grown, fuck what you on
Now, watch me stand on the world as I sit in a throne
And if I jump, I’ma fly and look into the eagle’s eye
And see, I am nothing like you, why?
Bitch, see, it gets me how nothing gets me or get to me
And if you shootin’ for the stars, then just shoot me
But your bullets don’t reach Mars
Paws, claws, because I’m a beast, I’m a dog
I’ll get you, my picture should be in the dictionary
Next to the definition of “Definition”
Because repetition is the father of learnin’
And son, I know your barrel burnin’, but—

[Chorus: D. Smith]
Please don’t shoot me down, ’cause I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m higher
Please don’t shoot me down
‘Cause I’m flying, I’m higher
Ayy, I’ma talk to my daddy

[Verse 3: Lil Wayne]
Papa, I did it to ’em! I’m a bastard!
And I’ma do it again, like “nigga” backwards
These niggas backwards, but they behind us
Now, watch me get high, like, time’s up
Nah, D., bring the drums back
And watch me hit ’em where they lungs at, like that
I get respect ’cause if I don’t, I’ma take it
I see your boys hating, and I see your girls naked
Drum, sound like a naked gun, switch clips with my thumb
Then, I pop another clip in and aim at his vision
‘Cause Wayne is his vision, ’cause Wayne is the mission
I’m aiming at a mirror

[Chorus: D. Smith & Lil Wayne]
Please don’t shoot me down, ’cause I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m higher
And I’ve done it before
Please don’t make me do it no more

Please don’t shoot me down
‘Cause I’m flying, I’m higher
Watch me soar
Where the fuck is my guitar? Now roar

Ohhhhhhhhhh
Please don’t shoot me down, ’cause I’m flying
I’m flying, I’m higher
