Lil Wayne was everyones favorite rapper in 2007-2008. He was unmatched in skill. Almost every relevant rapper gave him props and said they acknowledged his skill. If you want proof ill show you. His unreleased music is his best. He has one of the best mixtapes of all time. (Dedication 2) and has released other masterpiece mixtapes like Da Drought 3 and No Ceilings. People who say he sucks and cant rap has never heard his stuff before 2010. He breaks records every year. He has over 1000 recorded songs and over 500 features on other artists songs ranging from Madonna to FalloutBoy to Rick Ross. Only other rapper who has more fans than him is Eminem. He skill dropped dramatically after going to jail but hes still better than most of the rappers these days. If you listen to "conscious rap" like Lupe, Kendrick Lamar, or Common then of course your not gonna like him but he does have some hidden gems . He has the best punchlines ever. "Even deaf *****es say hi to me, she tell a blind ***** and she say 'i gotta see!'" lmao genius . Most of his raps are comedic and clever if you dont just listen to the mainstream bullshit. If you've never heard Da Drought 3, Dedication 2 or Tha Carter II then you gave no right to hate on him . If you did but still say he sucks then your just a bandwagon hater.
