I’ll confess to knowing next to nothing about Lil Wayne or his music. But this Rolling Stone review of his latest CD leaves me dubious.
OK, it’s true: he really is the best rapper alive. Lil Wayne made that claim on his last official CD, in 2005, and since then, he’s unleashed an astonishing torrent of mixtapes, leaks and guest appearances to back up the boast.
Sweet. So let’s get a sample of this kid’s mad rhymes. The review obliges:
As Wayne croaks in the woozy “3Peat,” “Get on my level/You can’t get on my level/You will need a space shuttle/Or a ladder that’s forever.”
