But rather than stick to what makes sense, Wayne sticks to what makes money. So the word album gives me the impression that maybe this was intended to be sold at some point. During the early part of last decade, the Louisiana spitter began his legendary streak of hits. Nevertheless, his cracked-voice inflections grew stale by the end, suffocating the flat instrumental into nothingness. The album will come soon, so just sit tight and check with Urban Islandz for regular updates. An excellent cut follows it. However, it is gaining popularity on the Internet.
So if I should make a wild guess, it will be worth the wait. Here he sounds clear and decisive with his flow. Face tats, double-cups of lean, dreadlocks and Auto-tune vocals extend as far as the ear can hear. Which, to me, makes for a trendy hit for now but lacks longevity going forward. Even though I have faith that Weezy is in control of his drug use, it still has negative effects on his delivery. Be that as it may, front to back, this album fails in the self-awareness department.
Lil Wayne is an icon. There are some rumors that Nicki Minaj will be featured on the album, but she is not on this tracklist. Over the years, Lil Wayne has been a polarizing artist. They did not set up the conflict or storyline all that much. And they want to be like their hero. Also, the Free Weezy Album had a couple bangers, though no signature songs. Tha Carter V opens well.
A maximum of 17 or 18 songs is plenty for a highly-anticipated record. As for the authenticity of the leaked tracklist, it came from a reputable source. His transition from raw young talent to hip-hop mega star is a piece of rap folklore. Following an incredibly lengthy delay, Tha Carter V is finally here! The fourth installment of his Carter series fared better nonetheless. After all, Birdman is completely irrelevant without Young Money.
All of which will please Lil Wayne stans for years to come. Jumbled, slurred speech throughout most of a verse is alarming. . Free in the title of the album gives the connotation that he is trying to free himself of cash money, free himself from his contract, so he can be free to do as he pleases. Since his Tha Block is Hot days, Weezy underwent multiple artistic shifts. He forces listeners to dig through a pile of par to find a handful of gems.
Nevertheless, this tracklist has been making the rounds on social media since Thursday, and no one from Young Money or Cash Money confirmed it. A collab of this magnitude is certainly exciting. Streams or sales, whateva but mixtapes are the only thing you should expect to be free, nothing album related should be expected to be free. After five years of waiting, fans deserve a reward, though I do not think stuffing mediocrity into an album is much of one. Perhaps the album just needed a little refresh. More often than not, his albums are unpredictable. Instead of some new music, we got a leaked tracklist which and still no official release date.
The title actually refers to 's actual last name hint: it isn't Wayne , in addition to referencing the apartments run by ' character in New Jack City. At least they once were. Although much has been made about 's growth and new world view, there's about as much change as you'd expect from a Southern rap star who has been in the public eye from his late teens to his twenties. My expectations going into this were not high, for a couple of reasons. There is more to a rap song than just bars and verses. In some cases, I applaud his experimentation.
Wayne may not make it out of 2015. But rather due to his choices of sounds. Just Use Your free Time with rapradar …. Mumbling along with a melody is one thing. When I was in high school, Lil Wayne was a god. Where do you get the impression the album is supposed to be free? This one takes me back to his Da Drought mixtape series.
During my multiple listens through C5, I found transparent lyricism, witty one-liners and signature flows. Both Wayne and Kendrick spit automatic rounds, albeit over a forgettable beat. As for the new delays, perhaps Lil Wayne decided to go back in the studio to make the album more for the current time. His effect spreads beyond hip-hop. Despite that, I figured Wayne would be in semi-top form for his ride into the sunset. However, the third act of his career has been less than favorable to say the least. He teams up with super-producer Swizz Beatz for one last hurrah.
I understand this approach nonetheless. DeadStox Wayne bloated this tracklist far too much. After all, some of these tracks were recorded from way back in 2012. The multi-year lawsuit between Birdman and Wayne regarding this current album likely stemmed from greed. My best friend and I bought the album the day after it dropped.
