I’m Me

I’m Me

Lil Wayne

“I’m Me” (originally known as “1000 Degreez”) was slated to be the opening track to Lil Wayne’s sixth studio album Tha Carter III. When it leaked in 2007, the track was pulled and put on The Leak, an EP of Carter III outtakes.

Over a sample of Moby’s “God Moving Over the Face of the Waters” (an electronic instrumental made famous in Michael Mann’s gangster epic Heat), Lil Wayne explains why he’s better than you. It samples early Wayne verses from Tha Carter and Tha Carter II, especially “Fireman.”
