Lil Wayne – Carter IV (Album Of the Year) Album Review

Carter 4
When I think of my favorite music, the first thing I think about is hip-hop music. When I think of the best album of 2011, as reluctant as I am to say this, it would be Lil Wayne’s Carter IV.

Believe me when I say….I tried to hate on Lil Wayne, with the rest of the haters. I would love to say that  Kanye West/ Jay-Z’s (Watch the Throne), Ace Hood’s (Blood Sweat & Tears), Wale’s( Ambition), or even Nikki Minaj’s (Pink Friday) should be album of the year.

But in all honesty, “Lil Tunechi” has that THING. That thing…That had me going to buy the album immediately at Best Buy before closing, because even the boot-leggers ran out. Classic? Quite Possibly? Between his metaphors that will have you at home twisting up a blunt, rapping to yourself…”Real G’s move in silence like lasagna??? This young man has matured over the years. He has come from these three words(money,pussy, and weed) to real hip-hop music.

Anticipation is such a turn on…..Lil Wayne is doing this thing right. Its like foreplay; He raps on everyone else album, dropping hot bars, then releases his own album and sounds even better. While everyone else is making so-so albums, and doing good guest appearances on others artists album. Lil Wayne is doing awesome guest appearances and still making his own album CLAP.

Andre 3000, John Legend, T-pain, Bun-B, Shyne, Buster Rhymes, and Drake are just a few that help add fillet to this gumbo mix. Tracks like, 6foot7foot featuring  Cory Gunz,  So Special featuring John Legend, How to hate with T-pain, and “She Will” with Drake are wonderfully executed. Lil Wayne has sang, rapped, laughed, and smoked his way to the top of the charts all last year. So my beliefs are; good hip-hop music consists of creativity, originality, lyrical content and a  banging beat, which is exactly what this album contained. With these facts in mind he has shown me and the rest of the world “How To Love” Lil Wayne all over again.
