MP3: DJ Khaled Ft. Rick Ross, Plies, Lil Wayne & T-Pain "Welcome to My Hood"

Well this should rattle everything within 100 yards. DJ Khaled assembles Florida's blue-chip rappers Lil Wayne, Rick Ross and Plies for a verse each on "Welcome to My Hood," a song detailing an enormous neighborhood of strip clubs, liquor stores, old-school Chevys, hopscotch (!), and the sort of place the real Manuel Noreiga might actually appear. Even if it's not your 'hood, you're still welcome, at least according to T-Pain's massive sing-song hook. The song is courtesy of Khaled's unsurprisingly titled Cash Money debut We the Best Forever.

After admitting that probation has made his nerves bad, Lil Wayne takes the opportunity to reflect on his time in lock-up with no love lost. "Back from hell, cell 23/ tell the warden kiss my ass, pockets 'a money." [via Rap-Up]
