Its just not hood enough for me. I thought his lyrics needed more references to violence, drug abuse, gang related activity and strippers. I need something that I can sincerely ride to, not this pansy stuff.

Keep it G all of my cousins.

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.
man kids today have zero idea of what a lyrical ability consist of. Wayne is average at best. All he is is punchlines, no substance to his rhymes. Punchlines are only that punchlines, there is a lot more to mcing than that. it just goes to show that the quality of lyrics these days is really subpar. Expecially if everyone thinks this guy is really good lyrically. he's not.

this review was obviously not well though out and the album was not truly listened to more than a couple times. a classic for sure.

i direct quote from jay-z on the album, "With my crown, with my dear queen Bee, as I share mic time, with my heir Young Carter "

Jay-z says it himself.

Lil’ Wayne AKA Lil’ Wack is one of the hottest worst rappers of all time. Let’s break this down a bit. If he happened to be Asian, Latino, White or a Woman every magazine, television and radio station would laugh him off thte page or off the air. That is, if he/she would get any play. Do everyone a favor. Take one of his songs and print out the lyrics. Then read the lyrics. Actually, hand it to your favorite white dude that raps (everyone knows at least one) and have him go in front of a crowd and bust it. Guess what? It would be CORNY. Just like Lil’ Wayne is. Hasn’t his family been rich since he was 8? In 1992 CMR was selling hundreds of thousands of albums and in 1997 Cash Money signed a 30 Million dollar deal with Universal (Lil’ Wayne was 14). So what does Lil’ Wack know about hustlin’ in the streets and poverty and killin’ in the streets? NOTHING!!! He’s lived a pampered childhood. Why does he compare himself to the greatest rappers to ever live when he should be comparing himself to Tim Dog (look that one up)? Because he is a CLOWN and Hip Hop is turning into a circus! Lil’ Wack AKA Lil’ Wayne AKA Knows Lil’ Pain (but raps as if he has been in the struggle) shouldn’t be getting any airplay let alone a review on his wackest, I mean, latest album. He better thank his Daddy for setting him up with a deal-for-no-talent contract. Maybe that is why he is a grown man kissing his Daddy on the mouth.

thats kind of a hard stance but I agree with some of your points. I am not saying Wayne is wack, I am just saying to me he is average. But hey continued success to him but I have a right to my opinion.

sorry but that wasnt a good wayne lyric to point out. acutally that one is pretty wack. "I'm a venereal disease like a menstral bleed?" that doesnt even make any sense.

the millie beat is cool, but seriously it sounds like a pharell track. did pharell do the track cause the beat pattern sounds like the "drop it like its hot" beat. They got a remake with Cory guns and he ripped it, better than wayne IMO. but good for wayne, he's hot right now. but to say he is the best emcee now? nah there are too many out there that are better than him. IMO.

hell no, no way is wayne a better mc than 50. wayne talks about absolutely nothing. he has one or two songs where he is trying to develop a story but its not impressive. if you put 50 and wayne head ot head in a battle 50 would win, no doubt about that. face it, wayne is all hype and no substance.greatest rapper alive? nas and jay-z is stil alive so thats a falacy.

I spit Alcatraz bars I know
and d-boys is the only alphabet boys I know
gotta 3-80 on my waist and Rambo at home
no more bandanna round my dome bandanna in my right pocket
bitch I'm grown f**k what you on
now watch me stand on the world as i sit in a throne
and if I jump ima fly and look into the eagles eye
and see I am nothin like you. why?
bitch see. it gets me how nothing gets me or get to me
and if you shootin for the stars than just shoot me
but your bullets don't reach mars
pause. clause. because, ima a beast ima dog ill getcha
a typical 50 cent song now days is about gettin some girl and going to some club and when wayne raps he spits whatever is in his head when hes in the recording studio he doesnt write shitlike pretty much every other emcee and once again if you pay attention to what he says he makes references to things all the time whether its something that happened to him or even political statements and 50? what does he rap about in "In da Club" maybe his most popular song?
