Review Summary: Quarantine the area, because Wayne is back infecting the world with his stupidity.
When I heard Lil Wayne was making a 'Rock' album, I knew it was going to be bad. But I didn't expect this. This album is like recording the slur of a drunken pirate, auto tuning it and throwing it over an Avril Lavinge instrumental. After the magic of The Carter 3, I didn't expect this, this is utter garbage.
Unfortunately, not even the guest stars can save this album. Eminem's verse is good, but not good enough to keep 'Drop The World' from being generic and forgettable. Nicki Minaj does her part well in 'Knockout' but Wayne just ruins the song with his drowning slur he calls 'singing' and guest stars Shanell and Kevin Rudolf are almost just as irritating as Wayne himself. This all adds up to one sloppy, wasted mess.
To an annoying attempt at Nu Metal with 'Ground Zero' right to the stupidity of 'The Price Is Wrong', Wayne's supposed definition of 'Rock' is pretty much strangling cat over a Nickleback instrumental. The auto tune of wayne's awful singing voice makes it sound worse and the instrumentals just sound like corny pop rock tunes. Not even some drumming from Travis Barker can make them feel good.
The only half decent track on here is 'Drop The World' featuring Eminem. Wayne only shows a slight spark of his creativity in this song, but it's better then all the other tracks combined. Eminem's contribution on this song really helped and was nice to hear after all the trash before it, unfortunately the tracks following this are also awful.
So overall, this album is a messy, pointless, irritating, unbearable piece of trash. The amount of wasted talent on this album is horrendous and I can't believe Cash Money even let this hit the market. Lil Wayne once said 'Confidence Is A Stain You Can't Wipe Off', Rebirth is a virus Wayne will never get rid of.
Recommended Tracks: None.
