Review ·

During "Blunt Blowin'," Lil Wayne asks us, "I've been gone too long -- true or false? Right or wrong?"

Well, that depends. Sure, he had that stint in jail, and Tha Carter III came out three years ago. But have we really missed Mr. Carter since then? He certainly continued his prolific output since III, and when he got sentenced, he filmed all those green-screened cameos for other artists' videos -- and there were a lot of them. He also gave us the odd "rock" record Rebirth and the holdover set I Am Not a Human Being. So has Lil Wayne been gone too long? Not really.

But it has been a while since Wayne crafted a proper full-length record, so in that way, sure, he's back on Tha Carter IV. But part of the draw of Lil Wayne is his scatterbrained output, his lack of quality control. And he knows it. He knows he's got the power now, which lets him release oddball stuff like Rebirth, the kind of album that might kill a lesser career. He cranks out mixtapes in his sleep -- hell, in some ways, he is the godfather of the current mixtape culture as we know it -- and this is why we love Lil Wayne.

It equates to a kind of bizarro cult of personality. Wayne gets by a lot on his undeniable, if sometimes demonic, charisma (especially when he tries to sing). It's been this way since Tha Carter II. That album, a watershed moment for him as a rapper that built on the promise of Tha Carter, was also a much cleaner affair than we expect from Wayne these days. It was after that that huge mixtapes like Dedication 2 and Da Drought 3 came out and showed Wayne in all his unpredictable glory. He did any and everything on those tapes, and set us up for the surprisingly weird set that was Tha Carter III. We felt prepared for it, had an idea of what tracks would show up, but in the end that album -- especially since it sold so many damn copies -- is unrelentingly strange. But that is what we see Lil Wayne as, the codeine-sipping, grizzled voice of a mad rap genius.

The build up to Tha Carter IV (this year's most anticipated album, period) is similar to III. We've seen possible track lists, we know some of the songs already, and the more we learn at this point the more we're ready to be surprised. In the end, though, Tha Carter IV ends up being a totally different experience in that, well, it's exactly what we expected. It's not nearly as strange or stuffed with ideas as its predecessor, nor is it the brilliant defying of expectations that album was either. It doesn't make this a bad record, at all, but it does make us rethink how we might view Wayne going forward.

I don't want to undersell the quality of Tha Carter IV, because it is pretty damn good. In places it is as exciting as Lil Wayne can be. "Megaman" is three minutes of straight fire-spitting, which may start with basic end-rhyme lines, but Wayne builds an inertia as he goes and the lines just pile up into a cackling screed, especially in the second verse, against anyone who isn't Lil Wayne. It can be strange ("I'm a diamond in the rough, like a baby in the trash") or nearly non-sensical ("Your cap get peeled (pilled) like ibuprofen") but it's the kind of quick-fire, free-associative stuff we love from Wayne.  He promotes himself from "Mr." on "President Carter," and though he's not as worked up as on "Megaman," his flow is tight and that song has one of the more interesting beats, sampling audio from Jimmy Carter's inauguration. "It's Good" comes late in the record and Wayne unleashes another verse of pure bile over a dramatic, grimy beat.

As always, he fills his raps with cultural references and endless lists of similes that are hilarious and frequently brilliant. On "Intro," he manages to reference both Helen Keller and Rudy Huxtable. These moments can surprise, but where IV breaks from III, and where things get slightly problematic, is that most of the highlights here are things we already know. "6 Foot, 7 Foot" is excellent, from the Harry Belafonte sample to Wayne's killer verse to Corey Gunz surprisingly solid cameo. "She Will" is a bit subdued, but Drake on the hook infuses the song with a laid back cool. Wayne and Rick Ross on "John" are a perfect fit together, two larger than life personas clashing over a fittingly huge beat. 

But we know all of these. They've all made the rounds on the radio -- hell, "6 Foot, 7 Foot" came out late in 2010 -- and though they still sound fresh, IV doesn't pack a whole lot of surprises around them. In fact, much of the rest of the record is pretty muted. There's the other single, the flat R&B of "How to Love" (not to mention its far-worse counterpart "How to Hate"), and the dark hush of "Nightmare from the Bottom." And in other places, like "So Special," Wayne sounds a bit worn out, falling back on a basic rap flow he so often breaks from when he gets worked up.

In these moments, Lil Wayne seems to be trying to find his footing. The easy and perhaps most compelling story would be that he's adjusting  to post-incarceration life. But it might have more to do with Lil Wayne the brand. Tha Carter III was a declaration, that Lil Wayne would take the top spot in the hip-hop world. Well, with apologies to Jay-Z and Kanye, he has. So Tha Carter IV isn't the same uphill climb. It's Wayne proclaiming to his subjects from a high-up throne. So some of this feels like there's no challenge to it. He's fought for that spot, and won it, and he's ready to rule, but perhaps unsure of what that means. He gives two songs wholesale to other rappers ("Interlude" and the excellent "Outro"), as if he's inviting players like Nas and Dre from Outkast onto his turf because his name on the song is presence enough. It's also telling that Dre and Busta Rhymes both end their verses with plugs for the album itself. That, right there, is some power.

But any ideas about how heavy the head is that wears the crown don't ring true.  The bitching about haters here feels half-hearted, more obligatory than anything, and while he gives us a set of songs with plenty of the charisma that got him to the top, you're left wondering where all the surprise went. It's as if, with all that auto-tune and Rebirth, he's surprised himself as much as he can right now, and Tha Carter IV is both a confirmation of the pinnacle of his talent and a big question: Now what?

Wayne's a savvy self-promoter, that much is clear. It's no surprise that the Jay-Z diss controversy from "It's Good" emerged the week before the album drops. And you've got  to give Wayne credit for his post-VMA performance release, since he has managed to (perhaps briefly) renew interest and excitement for a release date. This promotion spreads into the slow release of singles over the past year for songs that ended up on Tha Carter IV. But though the record is very good, you can't help but feel that Wayne hedged his bets a little. We thought we knew what was coming on III, and he proved us wrong. Here, he prepared us for something and gave it to us exactly. He has sold us on his charisma and he gives it to us in a heavy dose here, but he doesn't add any new layers to it. So while it's likely to be a huge album -- and far more interesting than any other releases of its size -- it's not the leap forward his last couple albums were. Up to now, Wayne shifted as quickly as we could figure him out. Tha Carter IV sounds like we've caught up. But hell, that still sounds good.

Considering his proclivity of recording hundreds of tracks spread out over mixtapes and official releases, it would be irresponsible for Lil Wayne's record company not to push him to get working on Tha Carter IV, the follow-up to 2008's biggest seller, Tha Carter III. Whether the album actually sees release soon (or even in the remnants of this decade) is up in the air, but since Wayne was placated by his record label with the release of his rock album, Rebirth, in April of 2009, it seems likely that Tha Carter III will actually be out sooner rather than later.

I've been listening to lil wayne since '97 and his flows changed, he is NOT the best rapper alive, eminem is. I am a BIG FAN of lil wayne, BUT i wish lil wayne wrote his own sh1t like Em does, but he doesnt. it does seem that lil wayne can flow, he prolly can, just his verses are written by numerous writers and himself. =/ cant wait for the carter 4 tho.

BUBBA

lil wayne is the sh1t like Tick Tick. wayne is the best . lil wayne will smoke anyone

big wayne fan

Lil Wayne doesnt have writers, he doesnt even write that often. Im a huge fan of his music. Hes a improved Jay Z-whom im not a big fan of- Wayne's real test is to see if he can do what Jay Z has done for the game over time. But looking at what he done so far make him the BEST ever. More songs than Pac and as for hits or anyones personal favorites. You'll notice that you can find more Wayne songs you like compared to other rappers. Eminem only did real good, but no hes not better-HELL NO. Boosie is ok- needs to bemore flexible with different styles. Jay Z (who i dont listen to, much) is really the only one to compare Wayne wit. Number 1 is Wayne or Jay Z. Two is K. West or Luda. People PLEASE get it right- Wayne is the BEST ever.

wayne

To all the "heads" on this board that think Lil Wayne is the best rapper ever... kill yourselves... immediately. You don't know hip hop, you don't know history, and you're probably too young to even be on this board...

eminem has no comparison to weezy. weezy's on a hole different level than eminem. nice try though. weezy kissin birdman doesnt make him gay thats love not gay love. theres a difference

dro

yo no doubt lil wayne can rap it up i listened to his early works when it was all spit spit spit true over the years his styles have changed now its like he jus singin...check Eminem, from the time he first got picked up by dre he been spittin n spittin those lyrics out. in my opinion em's a heck of a lyricist and i can understand more what he rappin about in his tracks. i wouldnt neccesarily say waynes overated he's jus overplayed same with drake. wonna talk about true RAPPING jay-z tupac eminem and t.i. keep it real. Drake is fake n Tupac is dust on the table...1.)Eminem 2.)Lil Wayne 3.)Jay-Z 4.)T.I. 5.)Tupac

@ppleCritic

okay lil wayne is a beast no matter what anybody says but he owns young money so why would his record label make him release albums although it would be amazig if he actually released albums.

true@true

wayne is the best rapper alive
waynne is crazy !!!!!

weezy is da greatest rapper right now....ok,mayb he's not as gud as 2Pac,cuz tupac is da King,but weezy is da best rapper alive...
his flow is sick,his beatz are perfect....his whole style is unbelieveable......He's a legend....&nd legends won't die!

YungMoneyY!

Dwayne Michael Carter is the best rapper there has ever been. Whenever my mates ask me to listen to a new song, i ask if it is by Lil Wayne, and if they say no, then i dont bother listening to it. Lil Wayne is the only rapper i listen to, i have no time to listen to any others. 'Lollipop' is the first song i had ever heard by Lil Wayne, and ever since, i have loved him. I have a playlist on iTunes with over 200 songs by/featuring him. My lifes dream is to meet Lil Wayne but unfortunately i live in Australia and it is a bit hard for my dream to come true unless he does a concert in Melbourne. My favourite songs by Lil Wayne are 'We Be Steady Mobbin', 'I'm Me' and '3 Peat'. If i could chose to have any voice in the world, i would chose Weezy's. I am so crazy about Weezy that when someone i know says something bad about him, i beat them up. I hope that you read this Weezy and think about havin a concert in Melbourne, and forfilling a 14 year old boys fream. Keep doing what you do best. Your biggest fan.

lilwayne#1fan

Alright look lil Wayne he definataly is one of the greatest. But those of you saying f@&k eminem and biggie. Eminem has a completly different style of rapping as Wayne. Wayne is someone who raps basically about mindless stuff that he's never done. Don't get me wrong we be steady mobbin is a great song to listen to but it has no point. Hell I've heard every song by Wayne that he has ever come out with and some of his best tracks are off mixtapes. But anyone who really disses eminem is just stupid whoever has a little list from who's the best rapper is just plain retarded. Rapping can't be judged on who thinks they're the best or not. Rap is the type of music where it all depends on what is going on in the persons life and how it speaks to you.

Zlong

lil wayne is sexy no disrespect but whoever said fuk weezy f baby fuk u cause no matter what lil wayne is still the baddest mothafukin rapper ever until the day he die

well wayne head your not too smart are? tupac was def. got a contract a early age (like 14 or 15) but his mom wouldn't let him accept it. Lil Wayne possibly has more songs made now, but if you really think about it Tupac was only a MAJOR rapper for less than a year and in that short period he sold over 7 million albums (total 1996), he's sold over 75 million world-wide, and he still has unreleased material (one or two albums coming out this year, a movie that he wrote, and there's talk of a documentary like Ntorious that was recorded before Notorious was but it wasnt released b.c. of legal issues). Wayne is GREAT to me, but come on he's not bigger than Tupac is and he's (wayne) been rapping way longer. Wayne probably could get bigger if he dies (and i dont want him or anybody to die) but i still doubt that..I really don't like Wayne's albums b.c. they always too highly anticipated for what they sound like, but Wayne def. has the mixtape game on look, easily the greatest ever at that!

None of you know a damn thing about hip hop.
Lil Wayne's bitch ass would get killed in a battle by any real MC.
He gets dissed all the time and he never responds because he's a pussy.
He admited he couldn't fuk with Eminem even though he says he's the best rapper alive
He said that he didn't "feel" 2pac's music.
He admits that he likes Fall Out Boy
He dresses and acts like a faggot then tries to pretend that he's hard on his mixtapes
Wiggers love him
Fabulous murdered him own his own track
It's a well known fact that Rebirth is the worst album of the decade
He kissed Birdman on the lips
He got murdered by Eminem on Drop the World

Lil Wayne is a hoe

GUCCI MANE KILLS IT!!!!

It's funny because half of you are just saying waynes the best because everybody else says it. Anybody who judges a rapper by how old their material dates is not a real hip hop head. 2 pac made classics that if some of you young heads would take the time out and turn off the lil wayne pride to listen to what he is saying, time would be of no value because it is timeless. Nobody said anything about nas and his skills. A lot of you people just grew up off these new rappers and believe that they are the best because they told they were. The bottom line is that this really just your opinion. Hip hop is not about how much money you make in the game, Its the music you push that can make a change in people's lives and the only change I see is more women getting loose, men losing morals, and more violence within the schools. As far as skill, The game has yet to find an artist that can hold down the old school and the new school. If there was there would be no question because everyone would agree to that choice. People love lil wayne because he is street, but in a since he candy coats a lot of things. We will see that one rapper that will rock the entire world on a positive and negative side and capture all fans. The time has come for a new beginning in the game. As for the cater 4, me and a bucnh of my peps are very disappointed. Nothing is serious and he got to weak ass songs by some new guy on there. The biggest hip hop rip off.

Kinghfi

lil wayne is the best you listen to his flow when he was 13 to when he was 27 s**ts off the hook how many rappers do you know that can freestyle for hours and dont have to right down a word yeah ill admit eminems great so is pac and biggie but if you agree with most on north america wayne is da best but dont forget his pa birdman if it werent for him he would be no where and pac and biggie were da best of there time there outa date if you wanna be big and make money and win grammys do what lil wayne did niminated for 8 won 4 thats unreal he was 26 but theres compitition no doubt theres kanye and em and 50 and drizzy drake but right now weezy is da best period so f*ck dem hattas

DONT SING WAYNE!!! RAP!!! PLEASE

Hata

lil wayne is the best

joe

Eminem is the best rapper hands down with the simple fact that no one can touch his lyrics. His crazy ass rhymes and they way he puts them out there so fast.....read his lyrics youll be blown away how he comes up with some s@%t. i was just listening to wyane and all his s@%t is slow and he spits rhymes on a 6th graders level. All wyane wants is your money, no heart or love for the game like em or pac.

jjg

lil wayne is raw as Possible in the rap game . jjg u are a pussy ass nigga. dont try mr brah or wayne.

masterpiece

wazzahp??? lil wayne is raw biatch! u dont mess with him!

im raw!

WTF! Yeah Wayne has good verses that are catchy and whatnot but nothing compared to Pac & Big. That nigga wouldn't be here if it weren't for them. Alot of these wack ass & fake ass rappers wouldn't be here if it weren't for them! And as far as Wayne being the best rapper...HAAA! His music is chillan to listen to when your getting fukd up or something but honestly who can relate to what he raps about? It like okay, who the f__k you know has like 12 lambos, f__ks 10 bitches on a daily basis, & is PROBABLY permanently high from so many damn drugs? No one! What he raps about is unrealistic. YES mother f__kers, HIP HOP IS DEAD! And ain't no way in f__kin HELL you can say Wayne brought it back cause at the end of the day his music's just crap. If you want REAL music, go f__kin' listen to NAS, Atmosphere, Living Legends, Heiroglyphics, IMMORTAL TECHNIQUE, Cunning Lynnguists & all that GOODsheeeit. I don't wanna hear no f__king auto-tuned out frog voice talking bout money bitches & cars most ppl will never have, I wanna hear REAL ppl spitting about REAL things & REAL problems. Wayne is just another craze. Y'all are just followers on the real. Look at all these stupid ppl calling theirselves "Weezy F. Baby" & "Drizzy" & "Barbie". Like c'mon now, we all f__kin' know you ugly as a monkey & half y'all "Nicki's" out there are fat & ugly. Just get over Wayne & Young Money. Their lyrics have NO substance. And why everybody tryna be a rapper now? Hahahaha KEEP IT REAL! '93 TIL INFINITY!:) Graff life baby!<3 Yes the only FEMALE holding it down for the EPTX. (:

martianswag

Lil wayne is the best i love yor songs !

gaga

Okay Im not trying to hate, but how can you possibly listen to a lil wayne song next to lets say: eminem, nas, immortal technique, diabolic, slug, raekwon, anyone from jedi mind tricks, and possibly think he is the best rapper alive? I hear alot of people sayin that because he puts out a hundred tracks a year that hes amazing. That proves nothing. Any rapper can record hundreds of less than mediocre songs talking about nothing if he wants to but real rappers want to make 20 great songs with meaning and great lyrics and release them in an album. Also has Lil Wayne ever told a story in a rap. I dont listen to very much of his stuff but Im curious. Because being able to tell a great story in a rap song really marks a true mc along with having great lyricism, influence, and passion for what they do, and am just simply not convinced that Lil wayne does any of this. And if some INTELLIGENT Lil Wayne fan would, please give an argument as to why you feel he is the best. If you bring up album sales I will immediately stop reading what you say. For the rappers I listed above I could write 5 pages on each of them as to why I feel they are amazing rappers, so now I am asking Lil Wayne fans to do the same.

In an interview on MTV's Mixtape Monday, Wayne asserted the possibility of an album titled Tha Carter IV.[57] Following Tha Carter III's achievement of selling over 2 million copies, becoming 2008's best record, Wayne re-signed with Cash Money Records for a multi-album deal.[58] Wayne said Tha Carter IV will be released in 2009 just before the holidays.[59] Birdman had previously stated that Tha Carter IV would be packaged with Rebirth as a double disc album.[60] However, Wayne denied this idea saying that "Tha Carter IV deserves Tha Carter IV". He went on to say that We Are Young Money may be packaged with Rebirth.[61][62] However, it was later confirmed that Rebirth and We Are Young Money will be released separately and that Tha Carter IV will be released during 2011.

jday

Hahahahahah anyone who thinks lil wayne is the best rapper alive, is either 1. between the ages of 12-16, 2. f*cking retarded or 3. Musically illiterate.

And too the f*cktard who said Eminem only got play cause he's white, do you know how f*cking stupid you sound? How many white rappers out there that got big like EM? 0. There are plenty of white rappers with talent, It's harder to come up as a white rapper than it is the other way around because you're looked down on from the start. It's really f*cking dumb to say he's famous cause he's white, if anything it caused him more problems.

That being said, I can think of at least 10 rappers who are better than wayne, in every way. Half his sh*t aint even rap, it's pop. He makes music for females and teenagers. Sold out years ago.

hip hop is a different genre than it was in the 90s and now that its almost 2011 were going to be hearing some new sh*t and things will change again but right now in my opinion eminem has the best lyrics and speaks to me the most. but dont get me wrong wayne can spit too. also the old sh*t is good to but as i said its like a different genre compared to whts out now

I've been listening to LiL Wayne since BG true story n he's been going hard from jump!! Now given when he came on the seen to now (13-29) ofcourse his flow is gonna change as well as anybody who grows up!! The fact of the matter is LiL Wayne made a claim n nobody has stepped up or even came close to putting that claim to rest.. so is LiL Wayne the best rapper alive?? YES HE IS!!!

$b()()$!3~W!ff3y$

wayne is a good raper . it just makes me think did he sell his soul to make this music . yes he is the best as of now but b4 he did not have this type of stile . there is not a single person that comes close to him . i get that . what is the price of fame . ask your self would u sell your soul . i thinkhe has . youst pay attention in the music . if u can not see it you are super dum peace i miss real hip hop .

Josh

this is funny cause none of you know how to spell... so how can you even judge who the best rapper is cause you probably don't even know what half the words mean in their songs... just saying.. like 3% of you are actually intelligent so all you need to stop dealing and pick a book up.. oh and lil wayne and eminem are equally good, eminem is a better free style rapper but all he does is b***h about his life and lil wayne is just witty and all his s**t flows well together.. biggie and tupac both suck d**k and are boring to listen to so there you have it retards.. and nas is okay..oh and big cheese.. you are a retard for thinking tech n9ne is any good...

what's rap??

Wayne feel off to me but if the carter 4 come out and its raww ill be straight with him but until yall niggas better be havin boosie and webbie bumpin in your speakers

kasim mohamed

tech n9ne is way better

ya lil wayne u da tha best nigga

nicholas

Lil Wayne is far from the best rapper alive. Eminem is better, but Eminem is also overrated crap that suburbanites worship. Good rappers: Cam'ron, Kanye West, Max B, Gucci Mane, Cage, El-P, Curren$y, Lil B, Prodigy. Most of these guys get no radioplay, but they make better music and have more talent.

Don

DON'T HATE ON WAYNE. BIG UP T.I. BIG UP EM. BIG UP YOUNG MONEY. CASH MONEY. BIG UP JAY Z. SUPPORT GOOD MUSIC GOOD LYRICS. THEY ALL DOING THEIR THING. WAYNE PUTS PURE HUMOUR IN HIS LYRICS. AND T.I SPITS REAL LIFE ON HOT BEATS. NO DOUBT. p.s. iff you wanna check out the uk underground scene search for AKALA on youtube. he is truly talented.

Truth hurts

i dnt wanna hate on wayne cuz he makes money n i jus cant hate on that but stop callin him the best rapper dead or alive he is commercially successful thats all. he could neva touch biggie flow lyrics two albums then considered the best of all time no one can match that if he took his time to write lyrics he might actually become good instead of free-styling these wack songs i could name atleast another twenty rappers better but like i said i dnt wanna hate on Wayne making money so peace

Lil Wayne iz tha best rapper alive!!!
& jay-z is aight' <3

Wtf?!?!! Hiphop is some sort of culture which the new school has messed up pretty bad. What happened to freestyle battles? All i hear in weezy's tracks is "this other rappers blah blah blah" He's been dissed by almost every rapper includin Ice Cube. Em has now bout 8 track where he disses weezy includin No Love n Forever. Then he tries to diss Em subliminally in Romans Revenge Remix saying "Old ass rappers" All i know, weezy started with money.....Em started with balls n Rap Battles. Its big difference aint it? The other difference is Em tracks has sense and a topic, be it bout gettin liqoured up, life, politics....any topic but lil waynes track just consists of random punchline, though creative.

PublicEnemy youre retarded you no lil wayne is in no love and forever? and that dis was supposedly to Jay-Z so you have no idea what youre talking about just stfu you dont know hip-hop at all

PublicEnemyDis

if you say gucci mane is a good rapper with no play time on the air you must have no idea what rap is

... TECH N9NE since 1985 !!!!!!! for you guys that don't know, Tech N9ne is the number one independent rapper for a reason. Its pretty cool that he is doing music with lil wayne because he can reach out to a bigger crowd,so, I really hope that lil wayne will put Tech N9ne on some of The Carter 4 or he's just a fake ass busta. So all I'm trying to say is that TECH N9NE IS NOT GOING MAINSTREAM ... MAINSTREAM IS GOING TECH N9NE

What Yall KNO

WHO IS BETTER THAN WEEZY? DON'T WORRY BOUT IT, I'LL TELL YA "NOBODY"

Terrance

i wanna battle lil wayne cause he aint got nuthin on me.

junior

shyt my boy always gone do 2 things and thats hustle hard and fye up!!!!

c.m.y.m.24

lil wayne the best rappper rite now but the best rapper that eve lived is tu-pac but lil wayn gettin there he going in with his music

chico

when eminem was rapping on killin people and the whole kim stuff thats when i thought he could beat lil wayne. but now lil wayne is heating dese niggaz since eminem changed(which is great)but wayne destroys hands down

AK

Why not just drop Tha Carter IV in march like half the world is.

Lupe mf Fiasco

Lil Wayne is the Best Rapper Alive, hands down. People can argue Eminem, but remember that Em went 5 YEARS without so much as a collabo. Wayne has been consistent. Better than BIG and Pac? Yes, for 3 reasons. 1, he's sold more albums than both COMBINED. 2, He's lived past 25. 3, he's just lyrically superior. In my opinion i think the only other rapper than can touch Wayne is Lupe Fiasco. Plus, Jay-Z and KRS-1 also said he was the Best Rapper Alive.

Mr.25

Lil wayne you suck its all boosie n webbie fa whole trill fam

nigga u sick ps. WEEZY BABY

Fuck KJ

First off!! Let me say this, Lil Wayne is good at freestyling no lie, but he makes no sense. I dont get why people even have the nerve to say that Lil Wayne is betta than Tupac and Biggie... Thats BS! I bet rappers like DMX, Eminem, Tech N9ne and Twista can finish Lil Wayne in a blink of an eye like Aftermath did to Ja Rule... I feel there is no such thing as a best rapper of all time b/c everybody is different and has their own sag in the game. But in my perspective, one of the few who are the top rappers of all time is Eminem. Even if he wasn't white, I bet he wud still be one of the top. Yeah Wayne got Rap Album of the year in 2008 for Tha Carter III, but Eminem has gotten Rap Album of the Year in 2000 for The Slim Shady LP, 2001 for The Marshall Mathers LP, 2003 for The Eminem Show, 2010 for Relapse and 2011 for Recovery. He is one of the best-selling artist of the decade.... Hes sold 83,000,000 albums and Lil Wayne has sold about an estimate of 7 million...

LiL-E

aaa yeah..tha Carter 4 is tha best album ;)

LiL' Wayne-<(-.-)>

lil wayne is rediculous! everything that man does is crazy. if u actually listen to wat he says (simile's nd metaphores) u can easily tell why..it take me to hear a song like 3 times to realize wat he's talkin about...that dudes no joke

L0 GuN

Lil Wayne is terrible. Most of the people commenting can't even construct a sentence. He is by far not the best rapper alive not even in top 25. Em Jay and Ye sh*t on wayne. He's not even the best rapper in Louisiana- Jay Electronica ,Curren$y, and Boosie are better.

G.O.O.D. Music>Young Money

Well first of all, Lil wayne has to be the most crazy Hip Hop artist alive. One because Oh the sh*t he says, now tell me.. Could eminem? Or rick ross. Jayz and Kayne West do that? Ohh no no no. I dont think so. I mean yeah there good. But i think Kayz and Kayne West suck ass. Just saying. But lilwayne<3 all the moffooo way bitchesss[; because Think about it. his sayings? You know what. YOUNG MONEY<3 striaghtt out, there tightt as helll! Tyga, Mack maine, Gudda Gudda, Nicki Minaj, Shanell, Lil wayne, all of them. all amazing, Lil wayne obviously been through alott. so stfuuu haters[; Weezzy F babeyy<33333

when is the album out?

Jose

I grew up listen to ever word lil Wayne ever sold and some he didn't from Jackson ms to Nash tn you still hear his music. No matter what he always gonna be the best he owns music. U got rappers that make millions then you got Wayne one of the few beings that people kids. Grown men. Even rappers that actully want to actually fuxkin be him. The truth is he's a few urs older than me and everybody our age learned something from him. He's there Ha ur the bitchs in the music talkin bout slim shady and u still listen and try to compare. Music no mater what it sounds like he owns the best. And u can't take it from him. Always at the front of the bus. Rappers will always pass to the back. The fukn south

Are you serious right now, Boosie is the sh**t that's a joke. Not only is he NOT hot as a rapper he is not a very smart as a person. Give credit where credit is do.

Sherelle29

lil wayne is the most lyricly gifted artists in history i know tha carter 4 will be phenominal, i cant wait for its release.

weezyFAN21

Kanye West is the truth... Perfect scores across the board for My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. He pushes the boundaries of hip-hop music to levels NO other artist can (even worked with indie-college radio hero Bon Iver). Can't say the same about any of Eminem's and Wayne's recent albums, can you?

Yeezy is the truth.

SuperSmashBiddies

" Lil Wayne ". is a walking living LEGEND.

DCARTER WAYNEFANATIC2011

Mane most peeps from Louisiana don't even like lil wayne, they all N2 Lil boosie, webbie, and other trash dudes that cant spit like wayne.... Sorry but its tha truth....

sicc made

ok Wayne is great I'm not gonna lie I have more songs by him or feature him than any other artist on my iPod. He does throw in some lyrics that have meaning but they usually don't have a deep meaning it's usually just to make filled laugh and say wow did he really just say that. but he is not tha best rapper out I have to say Lupe Fiasco wins cuz Lupe's songs have meaning. Lupe isn't on 2pac's level but he might get there if he keeps doin way he is doin. Wayne will never b on 2pac's level because his songs don't mean anything. lyrically Wayne Is slightly better than Lupe but when it comes down to tha meaning and the better song Lupe wins hands down
