Default What do people like about Lil Wayne?

PLEASE, let me know. I really really don't like him. But, a bunch of my friends do. I don't get it. To me, his music doesn't sound full enough and I don't really think Lil Wayne has any talent. I think he is just like The Jonas Brothers in the sense that who ever gets played the most or whoever the media says to like people will like. This is just MY opinion. I would love for people to give me reasons to why he is a good musician or why his music is good. I mean that in the best way possible. SO PLEASE, WHY DO PEOPLE LIKE HIM?

Because some people will think anything is cool if they are told its cool by enough people. It also helps when the person who is telling people to like something is someone they respect or a friend.

A standard brainwashing technique is to gain someone's admiration and then tell them what to think. Why do you think all of the big media outlets spend so much time making sure that there announcers, VJs, DJs etc. are "Cool"

Look at stockers because they see someone all the time on tv/movies etc. they start to think that person is there "friend".

Its why celebrities get paid so much to endorse products.

BoB has a point but that's not the full reason....each person has their own reason for liking him. I myself....despised him for quite sometime thinking that he was highly overrated but I have seen the errors of my ways lol.

My reason for liking him is that he's a ****ing clown lyrically...the things he says are extremely funny and his delivery of his lyrics are always on point. I love the metaphors he uses...well him and his ghost writer. The more recent material he writes a majority of it but the classics that everyone loves was written by a ghost writer.

I'm really looking forward to Rebirth. Prom Queen still rubs me the wrong way though. Prom Queen is his interpretation of what a rocker sounds like when he sings and it's ****ing awful. The lyrics are pretty tame as well. The only thing I like is the story but it's told in an awkward fashion.

I really like hot revolver more. I mainly like the chorus the verses yet again leave a bad taste in my mouth but just hearing the chorus overrides what I heard in the verse for me lol.
