The Literary Genius of Lil Wayne
To Be Counted Among Shakespeare, Lincoln and Dylan
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Kreston Kent's literary analysis of Lil Wayne’s lyrics shows that Wayne is, in fact, "the best rapper alive." Called a “thorough and incisive proof of Lil Wayne’s genius” by critics, the book shows that Wayne’s lyrics have more in common with Shakespeare's and Dylan's than with other rappers’. Kent, who attended college alongside Lil Wayne, compares Wayne’s lyrics with those of 103 other top rappers, showing Lil Wayne’s usage of literary devices to be far superior and in a category of its own. Songs analyzed span what Kent calls Wayne’s most intellectual period–2007 to the present. The Third Edition includes Lil Wayne’s own reaction to the book, analysis of data from a Finnish university's computer rap algorithm, similarities between Wayne and Lincoln as writers, a definitive ranking of Wayne’s albums and mixtapes, and analysis of Weezy’s latest output: Tha Carter V, Sorry 4 The Wait 2, Free Weezy Album and No Ceilings 2.
He didn't lie when he said...
"I'm the best rapper alive"
You really never see the hard work that goes into english and Lil Wayne’s lyrics writing until you read this book. its eye opening. I wish I could get this professor to make a speech about Lil Wayne’s Lyrics at my college. Even the vulgarity that goes into lil waynes work has some deep meaning to it than people really hear. A legend never talk for himself, lets his work stand alone and the rest is for the critics to anlayze. This book is no different that one that would be an interpretation of Shakesperes books, Merchant of Venice would be of a close resemblance to Lil Wayne’s work of writing.
This book is 100% right
He is the best rapper
