"Make It Rain" is the first single released from Fat Joe's seventh album Me, Myself & I. It features Lil Wayne, who only sings the chorus (but contributes a verse on the remix), and was produced by Scott Storch. It peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100. It was nominated for a Grammy at the 2008 Grammy Awards. The Exclusive Def Jam Version, which does not feature Lil Wayne and instead has a hook by Fat Joe, is featured in the game Def Jam: Icon and is Fat Joe's fighting song.
