MP3: Lil Wayne's "If I Die Today" (Featuring Rick Ross) Sounds Familiar

Lil Wayne just unveiled the second single, "If I Die Today," from the upcoming Tha Carter IV. Rap-Up correctly point out that this song owes quite a bit to Rick Ross' "I'm Not a Star" from last year's Teflon Don. First off, it's got basically the same J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League beat, and that "remember me like John Lennon" line transitions over as well. Seems like standard procedure for a mixtape track, but for an album? Actually, yes.

Following up "6 Foot 7 Foot," this ups the urgency by about 1,000, and just in case you'd like to visit Weezy, "an AK-47 is my fuckin' address." Compare Rawse's verson to this collaboration below.
