Editors’ Notes

Lil Wayne’s whole career is premised on avoiding the obvious. When his weird rap opus Tha Carter III became a sales phenomenon, the obvious thing to do would be to follow it up with more of the same. But because Wayne is Wayne he followed it up with Rebirth, an album of abrasive alternative rock. You have to admire an artist who is more comfortable in unfamiliar territory than he is on his regular turf. Rebirth may have been the last thing Wayne’s fans wanted, but no one can say that the music herein is not 100% true to its author’s personality. Wayne is a great lyricist, but Rebirth is predicated more on attitude than rhyme styles, and any true Wayne will tell you that his attitude and delivery are just as essential as his writing. “Drop the World” and “Knockout” rely on few words, but everything Wayne has to say is expressed in his vocalizing, which is in turns lusty, tortured, but always irrepressible. The musical choices of Rebirth are at times inaccessible and puzzling, but listen without expectations and you will receive what is arguably Wayne’s most revealing statement as a pop star.

Customer Reviews


simply one of the worst excuses for an album I've ever heard. and I was just listening to the HADOUKEN! album. I wouldn't know which to choose if I HAD to listen to one of them.
So much auto tune you can't actually make out the lyrics, and the music is utterly underwhleming. just becuase it is supposedly made with drums and guitar does not make it Rock. in fact, it sounds more like a child's experiments with Garageband.


iTunes - you should make minus stars for drivel like this.

Rebirth - Lil Wayne is reborn

I for one raised an eyebrow when i saw "lil wayne gone rock" and i really didnt know what to expect. I listen to both rock and rap styles, but i was really surprised to see them combined. But what can i say. A-mazing. This is a fantastic album. His lyrics are still so sharp and the beat of his music works so well with the backing. Definately a 5/5 album worth every penny!

Wayne's World

Brave. Fun. Weezy is the best rapper alive. Having outdone himself with his No Ceilings and Prebirth mixtapes (both of which could have sold tens of millions of records) you've got to give him respect for going in the rock direction. Da da da, One Way Trip, Ground Zero are standout...

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

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 student...
