Review Summary: Lil Wayne's attempt at saying sorry to his fans
This mixtape came out a while ago, and it’s all the normal Lil Wayne you’d expect, but it has some faults. I will spare you the history lesson on Lil Wayne, but this mixtape was released after he left prison, and was about to release the Carter IV. Personally, I think it’s good that he released more music to listen to, and it’s something that other rappers should take notice of. Now, the downside to this is the quality vs. quantity debate.
There is a decent amount of songs on this mixtape, but that doesn’t mean that there all good.Most of the songs are remixes of other songs (even a remix of Rollin in the Deep), which could be a criticism to some. Personally, I found most of the remixes cool, especially Grove St. Party and Hands Up. Other songs seem pointless but just added to fill out the song list, and add some volume to the mixtape.
This is the same classic Lil Wayne rhymes that you would expect. The common messages behind his raps are as follows; smoking weed, ***in bitches, and smoking weed again. I have no problem with this, but others might find it repetitive and boring after a while. Something that I feel makes this mixtape not as good is the fact that all of the guest rappers suck. This is noticeable in the song Inkredible Remix. Some of the rappers in the song make you want to punch the guy singing in the face because they suck so much ass. That said, Weazy sounds good and makes the song bearable. The Instrumentals are cool, but nothing special.
Overall, this mixtape is good for a fan of Lil Wayne, but this isn’t going to bring new fans into his music. If you’re a fan of Lil Wayne, then you will enjoy this, but if you hate him, you will probably still hate him.
