"0 to 100 / The Catch Up" is a two part song with a length of four minutes and thirty five seconds. The first song, "0 to 100", is a stripped-back hip hop song that sonically and thematically resembles Drake's "Started from the Bottom" from his third studio album, Nothing Was the Same (2013).
The song received critical acclaim from music critics, appearing on several year-end top 10 lists. In July 2014, Billboard listed "0 to 100" as one of the "10 Best Songs of 2014 (so far)" saying that "months after releasing another hit album, Drizzy returned briefly to take it from "0 to 100" with careening bars punctuated by boasts like "If I ain't the greatest, then I'm headed for it"."[4] The magazine also listed the track as the best rap song of 2014.
The instrumental became very popular among hip-hop artists, with several rappers such as Cassidy, Chris Brown, Fat Trel, David Stones, G-Unit, Gudda Gudda, Jin, Joell Ortiz, Lil Durk, Meek Mill, Ace Hood, Kurt Rock, Papoose, Problem, Rich Homie Quan, Soulja Boy, Stiz Grimey, Uncle Murda, Vado, Waka Flocka Flame, and Wiz Khalifa recording their own versions of the song.
Lil Wayne has released several music videos, working with many directors, as well as featuring in many other artists music videos as well. Before Lil Wayne went to jail he shot 20 to 30 music videos to keep his fans interested in his music.
Lil Wayne's fourth studio album Tha Carter featured the single "Go D.J.", which gave Wayne his first top 20 hit on the Hot 100 as a lead artist and was later certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
During this period, he also guested on a number of top ten hits, including T-Pain's "Can't Believe It", Kevin Rudolf's "Let It Rock", Jay-Z and T.I.'s "Swagga like Us" and Jay Sean's "Down", the latter of which gave Wayne his second number-one single on the Hot 100.
