Unquestionably, Cash Money/Universal Motown Records recording artist 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 Time."
In the span of his 13-year career, Lil Wayne has sold over six million units, including his magnum opus, Tha Carter II (2005) which sold over 2.5 million units. He has been featured on numerous high profile singles including Fat Joe's Grammy nominated single "Make it Rain," and in the past two years, Lil Wayne has recorded over 1,000 songs and freestyles. According to MTV, Lil Wayne has released more music in the last two years than the legendary Tupac Shakur.
Now with his highly anticipated sixth and arguably best album Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne's career and legacy is set to climb to even greater heights. "I made Tha 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."
A classic it will truly be. With production by Alchemist, Cool & Dre, David Banner, Kanye West, and Jim Jonsin, to name a few, and guest appearances by some of today's premiere recording artists including T-Pain ("Got Money"), Bobby Valentino ("Mr. Officer"), Babyface ("Comfortable"), Juelz Santana & Fabolous ("Ain't Got Nuthin") and a special guest appearance by the legendary R&B singer Ms. Betty Wright ("Play with Fire"), Tha Carter III is an eclectic collection of 15 songs that range from simply brilliant to sheer genius.
