Even while incarcerated, Lil Wayne manages to be one of the most powerful men in hip-hop. His latest empire-expanding project, 'Young Money
Entertainment', is a supposedly new concept - a "collaboration" of artists signed to his label as opposed to a traditional group. Is there really any difference though? The answer is... not really. It means every release by the Young Money family will feature
vocals from certain members of the clan, but not necessarily all of them. A bit like the Pussycat Dolls then.
'BedRock' features contributions from Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga, Jae Millz as well as guest vocals from Lloyd and Lil Wayne himself, who wrote the song's punchline: "Call me Mr Flinstone / I can make your bed rock." Sadly, the track itself is a bland slab of hip-hop-by-numbers with a cringily predictable video to match. Moseying along at midtempo for nearly five minutes, when it finally finishes you're not only exhausted from hearing all those "collaborators" squeezed in, you're left wondering what it was all trying to achieve. > Click here to watch the 'BedRock' video
