Tha Carter

Tha Carter

by Lil Wayne
10 New & Used Starting at $2.75


It would be easy to read too much into the title of Lil Wayne's fourth album, especially in light of a mixtape (cunningly titled The Prefix) that preceded this, which featured the MC over a handful of tracks off Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter's Black Album. The title actually refers to Lil Wayne's actual last name (hint: it isn't Wayne), in addition to referencing the apartments run by Wesley Snipes' character in New Jack City. Although much has been made about Wayne'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. Mannie Fresh's stout production is in effect as ever, and to the MC's credit, the rhymes are less measured and are all the better for it. To beat that dead horse one more time, the album is far too long and not concerned enough with the quality control, despite including more than enough bright spots to keep the followers following. At just over 79 minutes in length, it's made evident that the length would actually be just over 89 minutes if a CD could hold 90 minutes' worth of music.

This is the best album of the year. Wayne comes on every trak, he also explans The Carter, inside and out, in a very creative way. Listen to the words and you will see this is the south.

eventhough hes only had a couple of albums, this right here is his best and if you dont like this, i think you dont know or like true rap.

Ok!He doing his thang again. He slacked off on his last album but this album to me brought back the enjoyment to the rap game.

I have listened to all of the songs on that cd and their is not one you cant have fun listening to, his main hit right now is "go DJ" which is one of the best on the album. It is a definite "slapper." You can listen to this cd more than once and it will not get old.You should definitely go and buy this cd, it will never come out of your cd player. His beats will move your head all day.I know he has only had a few albums but this one is his greatest.I would recommend this cd to anybody.ONe of the greatest cd's of the year
