Review: Lil Wayne
Call him Wayne, Weezy, Tunechi, or Lil Wayne, Dwayne Micheal Carter Jr. is the greatest rapper alive and my personal favorite. There are many reasons why he is the absolute best.
He has an auto-tune sound without using auto-tune. Thanks to year of drinking sizzurp, Wayne’s voice has taken on an almost mechanical sound, quite soothing to an avid Weezy fan like myself. Take a listen to “30 minutes to New Orleans”. “Cascades”, or “Demolition Freestyle Part 1” and you’ll see what I’m talking about.
He’s actually a comedian. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-idSGIHNKJ4
His lyrics are out of this world, whimsical and non-nonsensical. He’s said it many times, even naming two of his albums, “I am not a human being”. He is not of this world, and his lyrics prove just that. Lets take a look at a few of my favorites.
Lost: By Gorilla Zoe ft. Lil Wayne
“Imma need counseling, I lost my mind and still haven’t found it, I used to be so well-rounded. But now I tiptoe on hell’s boundaries. F-F-F Baby aka Crazy, trapped in a maze therefore I am amazing”
Yes. you are amazing.
6 Foot, 7 Foot: Lil Wayne
“Real G’s move in silence like lasagna… Women of my dream, I don’t sleep so I can’t find her”
Get it? the g in lasagna is silent!, so clever.
Ain’t I: Jae Milz ft. Lil Wayne
“I’ll put you where the fishes sleep and when they wake you’ll be the fishes feast”
whoo, scary Wayne, very scary.
La La: Lil Wayne ft. Busta Ryhmes, Brisco
” See ya’llare at ground, and my daughter is my sky. I swear I look in her face and I just want to break out and fly. Four tears in my face and you ain’t never heard me cry, I’m richer than all ya’ll I got a bank full of pride”
Tricky tricky wayne. Very tricky.
I honestly could go on about how awesome he is and how clever he lyrics are but instead I will be dedicating Wednesdays to his lyrical genius.
Welcome to Wayne Wednesday’s.
