DBH Music Series Presents Lil Wayne

Unquestionably Lil Wayne will go down in history as the best rapper of his generation. Indeed he may go down as one of the best artists in hip-hop period. One look at Lil Wayne’s impeccable track record will convince even the most ardent skeptic that the New Orleans born lyricist is a strong contender for the crown of “Greatest of All Times.”

Now with his highly anticipated sixth and arguably his best album The Carter III, Lil Wayne’s career and legacy is set to climb to even greater heights. "I made The Carter III so that whatever song is on, it will stick with you forever,” says Wayne. “That’s why I took my time with it. I wanted it to be a classic.”

Born DeWayne Michael Carter, Jr. and raised in New Orleans infamously poor Hollygrove neighborhood, his talent drew interest from major producers at an early age. In 1997, a 15 year old Wayne joined forces with BG, Juvenile and Turk to form The Hot Boys for their debut album Get It How U Live. The record sold over 400,000 copies independently. The Hot Boys sophomore LP Guerilla Warfare (1999) went platinum and earned Wayne critical acclaim. That set the stage for his platinum selling 1999 solo debut Tha Block Is Hot.

GQ Magazine named Lil Wayne as its “Man Of The Year” for 2007. Rolling Stone Magazine tagged him as “Best MC of 2008” while Blender Magazine (2008) named him the “Best Rock Star Alive.” So it should come as no surprise that his latest solo outing finds the hip-hop super star at the top of his game. With Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne proves to the world why he is indeed considered “the best rapper alive” and one of the great recording artists of his generation.

Yes you`re right Rogerebert :)
I love most of his works but it`s not true calling him best.
It`s disrespectful to other big rappers.

Love the man’s work, but stop calling him the best! Right now he is a pop icon/ celebrity. someone people have heard of but not necessarily be familiar with his music.

It would be nice for the artists being commissioned to have an outline to theme like previous album promos. The news that his upcoming albums is more rock and singing (from what I’ve read on-line) might be more helpful than the kiss ass bio above.

Jay-Z, KRS-1, Chuck D, LL Cool J, Hell you could even throw in De La Soul or Beastie Boys is we want to talk about decades of respect vs. today’s hottest flame. Stop calling him the best alive, since that leads to the transition of an inevitable fall from grace (not that I want him to fall).
