Lil' Wayne's Best Mixtape?
Earlier today (while I was supposed to be paying attention in summer school) Rufus and I started talking about Lil' Wayne. I started off by saying I wasn't really feeling Wayne's verse on Eminem's new song. Rufus started saying I'm not a Wayne fan, and I had to think "Am I a Wayne fan anymore?". The answer is yes, but not like I used to be. No Ceilings was entertaining, and it was good to Wayne back rapping on popular beats. But all the Young Money features made half the mixtape wack. My favorite Lil' Wayne mixtape is Da Drought 3. On Da Drought 3 Wayne rapped on a variety of popular beats ranging from hip-hop, R&B (Upgrade and Promise) and even a Gnarls Barkley track (Crazy). The mixxtape was 2 discs and Wayne crashed everyone on their own beat. 2007 was Wayne's year and Da Drought 3 is a big reason why.
