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.

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).

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.

aureax aureax Artist from

He’s for sure one of the freshest right now, but not the best.

Brisco ,Gucci Mane and Ace Hood will be on top soon…

WATCH OUT FELLAS!!

touché’ RAYHANSJ.....touché’...... Yes Lil Wayne goes in the studio without rehearsing and lays down track in in one take, that is a skill to be reckoned with but then maybe the more appropriate term would be best “freestyler” of all time. And I think it is great he released his songs for free but that doesn’t make him a great rapper ,but great at marketing and self promotion. Being able to string together words and have them make sense is a great talent is great and all , but when those words don’t amount to anything other then rhyming, or don’t serve any over all purpose…... what’s the point…...

“But man I ain?t never seen an ass like hers
That pussy in my mouth had me at a loss for words
I told her to back it up like burp burp
And make that ass jump like shczerp shczerp”

really??....... that’s poetic, powerful stuff.

It’s just meaningless made up words just to make a rhyme. Plus all his beats sound the same and like every other rapper out there right now. He’ s like the Nickelback of Rap. But their realm of suckiness is a whole other story.

I’d rather listen to a rapper who takes some time to think about his lyrics before they lay them down on a track. There is nothing wrong with that in my book. some of the greatest songwriters of all time took days, maybe years to write, like John Lennon, Bob Marley. But that’s just me, I like musicians who aren’t just in it for the $ or fame, that are in it to get a message out to the people.Yes there needs to be musical appeal, that that should never sacrifice the content of the song. But I come from punk background, where it is all about making music and getting a message out( REAL punk, not the crap you hear today) so that could be why I am not a big fan of Lil Wayne and listen to artist like A Tribe Called Quest, Mos Def, Rakim, Talib Kweli, Blackstar, Common, Chuck D, The Roots, Lupe Fiasco, Jurassic 5, Beastie Boys, KRS1,Del la Sol, Zack de la rocha, Dialated Peoples etc, etc…...........

I am not saying he is not talented, but a far cry form the best.

Music is way more than what kind of “sense” or rhyming sounds the lyrics make. Freestyling is a huge element of rap and hip hop.

The description for this contest does not intend to crown a greatest of all time or tell you that the music you listen to is less worthy.

Nickelback of rap is way off dude. You should be banished to listening to them for making such a comment.
