today i watched the following rap video:

the song is by birdman, featuring verses from rick ross, young jeezy, and lil' wayne, respectively. watching it made me wonder if the verses for rap songs like this one are organized in the same way that the legs of an olympian 4x100 relay team are. for instance, is lil' wayne given the last verse because he's the the 'anchor'? the 'donovan bailey' of the four (his performance in this particular song is surely not bailey-esque, but nonetheless)? does birdman consider himself the weakest of the four, hence his taking the second verse, or is he just being modest?

burning questions.
