Sticking to my guns, Bow Wow and T-Pain’s pro-stripper number “Better” continues to resemble the most solid choice for a single Shad’s had since he began promoting his Cash Money debut, Underrated. Somewhere written in the label’s bylaws, every artist must dedicate at least one single to the titty bar. Instead of the usual angle, Bow Wow takes the more sensitive and TV-friendly route.
Sans the horrible acting job of crying, the video isn’t exactly great, but it’s not bad either. Pain’s hook is heavy while Bow Wow drives home the point there is life outside the gentlemen’s clubs if she’s capable of seeing the bigger picture. Some’ll say the cadences flow-wise are too close to another label mate, but what everyone should be upset about is the fact we failed to get the obligatory Birdman handrub in here somewhere.
