iTunes Editors' Notes

Lil Wayne is not rap’s most successful artist, but he is undoubtedly its most unpredictable. In an industry that becomes more inhibited and conservative with each passing year, Wayne is one of the few million-dollar pop stars who refuses to color inside the lines. His much-anticipated Tha Carter III is far from perfect; most glaringly, it lacks focus. But then again this album’s jarring collection of styles is what makes it exciting, and what makes it so definitively Wayne. No one could make Weezy choose between the Jamaican infusions of “Mrs. Officer” and “A Milli”, the vintage soul of “Mr. Carter” and “Dr. Carter” and “Let the Beat Build”, and the pop subversions of “La La” and “Lollipop”. They are all equal parts of Wayne’s personality, and Tha Carter III accords them all equal space. And the lyrics? Suffice it to say that Wayne is the most quotable man in music, and he uses his voices in ways that makes other rappers appear timid and banal. Not since Prince has a mainstream artist been as endlessly inspired by his own unconscious and as unafraid to follow his own muse.

A fantastic collection of tracks, perhaps lacks the depth of someone like Nas but there is no other artist quite like Wayne. A great collection of songs with perhaps one or two tracks not quite the standard of others but overall a great listen.

A game-changing artist and celebrity, Lil Wayne began his career as a near-novelty — a preteen delivering hardcore hip-hop — but through years of maturation and reinventing the mixtape game, he developed into a million-selling rapper with a massive body of work, one so inventive and cunning that it makes his famous claim of being the "best rapper alive" worth considering. Born Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. and raised in the infamous New Orleans neighborhood of Hollygrove, he was a straight-A...
