weezy baby – lyric of the week

Before I bless everyone with some more hotness from Weezy F. Baby, I wanted to talk quickly about his new single. Tha Carter III comes out in late April or early May and the first single was recently released. It is called “Lollipop” and it is being met with some criticism. Mostly because the song is very different from the tricky flows and clever lyrics that has made Wayne so popular of late. It is definitely a more radio/club friendly song, but that doesn’t necessarily make it bad. When I first heard it, I was not a huge fan, but then I listened to it a few more times and although lyrically the song is somewhat lacking, I don’t think that is the angle Wayne was going for with this particular track. The beat is intoxicating and it really forces your head to start nodding along. The thick deep bass line will be a pleasure for anyone with some strong speakers and you can tell it is a very well produced track, even if it sounds “clubby.” Wayne does a little more singing type flow and his words are less of the focal point of the track, yet the subtlety of the lines actually, I think, bring something to it. I also respect what he is trying to do, he doesn’t want to become stagnant and he needs to keep trying new things, some will succeed and others will not, to become a truly great artist. Overall, I think I like the song but as a true Wayne enthusiast I hope that the whole album comes at you with a lot of different looks. Because if the whole thing is like the single, the album will be a failure, as Wayne will have departed too much from what makes him so good. So check it out and let me know what you think.

With that said…Tha Carter III was supposed to be released already but some of the songs on the album leaked to the public and so Wayne decided to scrap the release, go back to the studio and create a bunch of new songs. He also decided to market the 5 tracks that were released into an album called Tha Leak EP, cause it is all about that cash money son. These five songs are much more like the traditional Weezy with some tweaks, and really sound nothing like the new single I just talked about. The first song is called “I’m Me” and is incredibly dope. Here is the first verse of that song. Spark an L, turn it up and enjoy.

Un-fuckin-believable, Lil Wayne’s the president/fuck em, fuck em, fuck em, even if they celibate/I know the game is crazy/it’s more crazy than it’s ever been/I’m married to that crazy bitch/call me Kevin Federline/It’s obvious that he’ll be cash money till the death of him/the ground shall break when they bury him/bury him, I know one day they gotta bury him/better lock my casket tight, baby, so I don’t let the devil in/nigga, it’s just me and my guitar/yeah bitch, I’m heavy metaling/you can get to fucking Led Zeppelin/niggas is bitches, bitches, I think they full of estrogen/and we hold court, and I take your life for the settlement/Yes, I’m the best, and no I ain’t positive, I’m definite/I know the game like I’m reffin it/this is Tha Carter, Tha Carther Three, the new testament/and I’m the god, and this is what I bless ’em with
