Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III

Tha Carter III - This review is inevitable. With an opening week sales of more than a million copies in the United States, it is thus far the largest first week sales for any album in 2008 and the first to crack the million mark in one week since 50 Cent's The Massacre in 2005. It took 3 years for a dreadlocks singer who sniffs cocaine to perfect that synthesiser voice to break that barrier so is Lil Wayne really any good at all? Well Tha Carter III is definitely a keeper if you ask me because its really a complete album with adequate hits and beats in overall to make you want to listen to it over and over again as compared to Kanye West's Graduation and 50 Cent's Curtis. Never mind the lewd lyrics and cursing but the beats inside every tracks are really sic and that voice of his is really something which would make every clubber who loves Phuture proud haha. Hats off to some of the creativity in his tracks like "A Milli", "Dr. Carter", "Comfortable", "La La" and "I'm Me" which reminded me of some of Jay-Z's earliest works. He can really rap and "Lollipop" together with its remix version are probably my favourite of the lot. If you dig hip hop, you can't miss this album (Legend in the making). Hope he would consider doing a collaboration with Pharrell Williams because that would be one hell of a collaboration.
