"Shooter" is the third single from Lil Wayne's fifth studio album Tha Carter II, and is featured on Robin Thicke's second studio album The Evolution of Robin Thicke. The song was also featured on the Like Father, Like Son bonus disc. The song samples the electric piano from Vic Juris’ "Horizon Drive," which was also sampled in and is recognizable from Gang Starr's "Mass Appeal." It is a remake of Robin Thicke's "Oh Shooter" from his first album A Beautiful World.

Music video[edit]

Directed by Benny Boom, the video is an interpretation of the 1986 Run-DMC video "Walk This Way", with Thicke and Wayne in neighboring apartments representing R&B and Dirty South respectively. The video shows both artists' different lifestyles as they begin to overlap each other, culminating in both artists performing onstage.

In popular culture[edit]

It was featured in the 2008 film Rambo.
