iTunes Review

Tha Carter II is to Lil Wayne what Supreme Clientele is to Ghostface. Wayne had always maintained a unique style, and had made memorable, even classic, recordings in years past but Tha Carter II broke the mold. Sudenly Wayne was taking risks in his rhymes, experimenting with his voice and his cadences, using stream-of-consciousness wordplay that was at times incisive, at times incomprehensible, but never less than stimulating. Without the futuristic stutter-stepping sounds of estranged Cash Money producer Mannie Fresh, Wayne became tuned into a more soulful sound that seemed to bring out the best in his personality. Songs like “Receipt” and “Hustler Musik” embrace the moans and sweet strings of classic Seventies R&B, while the sublime “Shooter,” which unfolds in layers and hushed climaxes, bears little resemblance to typical rap song structure. As Wayne explains, “Then they ask who when where how / And my reply was simply POW!” Tha Carter II was the beginning of a whole new chapter for this New Orleans youngster, and the first time we started believing him when he proclaimed himself “the best rapper alive.”

JAW-DROPPING!!!!

This album will soon be recognized as one of the most influential southern rap albums of the last decade. Lil' Wayne has done the impossible, and topped his masterpiece, The Carter. I thought the loss of Manny Fresh would greatly hurt the quality of this album, I STAND CORRECTED. The production is extraordinary, overall blockbuster! I highly recommend it.

Tha Dude Gargles Gumbo, Spits Jambalaya...

I dunno how the public gonna take this one, but to me its fire the whole way through. I love my man's flow, I don't care if he got it from Jay or what. He gets on more different styles of beats on this album, and he shows he can spit any way. Best tracks: Tha Mobb, The Interludes (Fly In, Carter II, Fly Out), Mo Fire, Best Rapper Alive, Hustler Musik, Receipt, Feel Me. His verses are off the top of his head a lot of times, or at least done in one take. Lil' Wayne is sick. Don't sleep on him. If you are doubtin', cop the SQAD mixtapes, and the Young Money Mixtape.

Tha Hottest of tha Hot

This is nice. I like Weezy but I didn't as much until I heard this Cd. The South is getting their lyrics together. I am really feeling this record. Watch the Boondocks Sunday @ 11:00 pm

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.
