Kevin Rudolf hits the mark again with "Champions", his new single featuring Lil Wayne, Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit, and Birdman. It's a stadium-size anthem that tops even "Let It Rock" in terms of bombast, balls, and bravado. Rudolf's Gibson Les Paul chugs underneath towering production, propelling the song along to another YMCMB victory. His hook instantly embeds itself in the brain with the refrain of "Still number one" resounding brilliantly.
Durst kicks off the verse with one his smoothest and slickest verses ever. When he gets behind mic, he remains a premier rhyme assassin even dropping a line about Legos. He hits hardest announcing, "Now my team got anthems". He ain't kidding. This is just a prelude of what's next for Durst and Limp Bizkit though, and when Stampede of the Disco Elephants storms out of the gate, the game may never be the same.
On the next verse, Birdman eases back on the beat with another smart signature rhyme including Forbes and TRUKFIT. He's a visionary businessman and MC—and that's no easy feat.
Lil Wayne closes things out going from "con artist to icon" on a spirited rhyme that's inimitable, infectious, and impressive. There's a reason Weezy's at the top, and you can hear it loud and clear.
Meet the "Champions". They're going to be running things for a long time to come…thankfully!
