Lil' Wayne 'Tha Carter III' review

Full story: Chicago Tribune

More than most rappers, Lil Wayne is a master at self-mythologizing. Like his predecessors the Notorious B.I.G. and Jay-Z , Wayne claims of no longer writing down his lyrics before recording.

lyrically brilliant, dons a new style and ties in metaphors similies and constantly relates punchlines to each other in a more poetic rhyming pattern. this is the standard.

This album is garbage and clearly doesn't live up to the hype of him being the best rapper alive or even the hottest rapper this week. This is no where near a classic, in fact, it might even struggle just to make it to "average".

Lil Wayne is very cold with his powerful lyriqs cause they make sense, but I think he should leave the autotune alone cause he really dont know how to use it like T-Pain and trust me T-Pain is a superstar with it.

I agree with Da Truth that this is definitely a mainstream sound for Wayne. When I heard Lollipop I was like this is the softest track I ever heard from Weezy!!! But overall the album is hot and just in time for summer ridin
