Lil Wayne is fucking prolific, the problem with prolific artists is the amount of filler. Now maybe it's his need to make money and be a mainstream artist that makes him record some banal stuff or maybe it's just filler but if this album was half the length it is it really would be Excellent worthy. But whatever, Lil Wayne's still releasing (and sometimes not releasing just giving) more music worthy of my time than every other mainstream hip hop artist (yet I've heard Kanye West.) I'm voting Very Good and I'll just ignore the filler.

Okay I'm not going to ignore the filler, I find Got Money kind of lame but the Ella Ella Ella Rihanna call made me smile and when he went "I'm the bomb like tick tick tick" I couldn't help but smile more. Sure some of this is just club hip hop but it's not serious and there's the appeal. Okay back to the worthy tracks.

Lil Wayne compares himself to Tupac he compares himself to Biggie is he as great? No, is he getting up there? Well if he follows up on some of the ideas and stylistic oddities he hints at (Phone Home, Let the Beat Build, etc.) and stops recording crap like Comfortable he very well could be mentioned in the same breath, even if he is of a different era.

This albums best moments are probably the very touching Katrina inspired Tie My Hands, a track that could make even haters admire him slightly. Dr. Carter which is an ironic follow up to Comfortable but a great song nonetheless and finally Let the Beat Build is excellent. I love how his voice carries the track. Phone Home is I think my favorite song on there, it's so spacey and it's such an excellent use of the piano. I'm saddened by the lack of I Feel Like Dying though not going to lie.

Okay so this isn't the Lil Wayne album I've been waiting for and that kind of disappoints me but at the same time I enjoyed it. That probably wasn't clear given my review but I'm dead tired to be honest (which is why some of this is probably incoherent) and I did even find the more mediocre moments completely entertaining and he's still got the most amusing pen in hip hop.

I'll have something to say about this album real soon.

Regarding Wayne though, I think one review I read of Da Drought 3 put it best: when Lil Wayne claims to be the greatest rapper alive, the claim isn't all that controversial - he's one of the only rappers alive. The majority of mainstream rappers are not rappers at all. They just throw out a few lines here and there on top of some lame generic club track and then get back to what they are really about, which turns out to be selling merchandise, acting and whatnot. At least Lil Wayne is TRYING to actually BE a fuckin' rapper.

I'll give him props for dr.carter, although that does not excuse the rest of the record. It sounds like everything else I've heard from this rut, even though he does it 10 times better than most it's still insipid and not the least inspiring. Maybe if I was a fan of this type of music I'd probably think it was the greatest thing since the BJ I got from my dad yesterday in the attic but I don't so he must be a camel.

This album is kind of dissapointing. Maybe it will grow on me, but this album is much softer than his previous albums. It feels much more poppy, and their are less times in this album where I sit back and say, "wow he's really spitin."

Having said that, I like 3 peat, Dr. Carter and Phone Home are good songs, and I love Don'tGetIt. Common's misunderstood was probably one of my favorite songs, and Wayne was creative on the track.

I just would like Wayne to drop all the *** sythesizers and all the extra ****, and just rap with a basic beat. If you are going to put your baby picture on the cover of your album (Ready 2 Die, Illmatic) you better be cooking a classic, and this isn't a classic.

Edit: Mr. Carter is a sick song. Somehow I missed that

i am in no way a rap or hip hop fan, but that song a millie is so good. i had never heard it until me and my friends were driving around, and his car has an amazing sound system so they had the bass all the way up, and i honestly have a heightened interest in rap. i just might have to get some.

I would recommend a lot over Lil Wayne.

Definitely.




I liked his first Carter album. I can't stand anything he releases now.
Millie is one of the most annoying track's I've ever heard.
I listened to this album, and did not like it. At all.

Sorry to say, but Lil Wayne isn't even worth illegally downloading (which I did with this album). Better artists out there, better albums, etc.

The Recycle Bin is your friend.
