Everyone's guilty pleasure, hidden favorite, or outright go-to guy. I'd be happy to sit any of you disbelievers down for 30 minutes, and convince you of Lil Wayne. Kagan-Kans and I can convert anyone.
Anyway, part of Lil Wayne's success stems from his simply ridiculous work ethic. Despite smoking multiple blunts in any 24 hour period, Weezy turns out up to three or four songs a day! While many artists stick to there studio albums and official guest spots, Lil Wayne seems to jump on every track he can.
And, most of the time, it works (However, 'Rebirth' the punk rock album, is kind of weird). Either mixing himself into tracks or actually joining singers and rappers, Wayne catalog is enormous. Check out these two tracks I recently found on the nets.
Dwight K. Schrute vs. Weezy - Office Musik (Clockwork Edit) (Listen/DL)
Not much explanation needed here, just take a listen. Watch the (American) Office television program if you're still confused. I like his first verse, talking about being a king.
Electrik Red feat. Lil Wayne - So Good (Remix) (Listen/DL)
Electrik Red is produced by The-Dream. This funky track is signature of The-Dream's groovy feel, and velvety synth feel. I like this track a lot because of the drums. On his RnB heavy solo albums, The-Dream doesn't hit as hard as tracks like this or his other big hit, Rihanna's Umbrella.
And MPLS kids come out to the Kitty Cat Klub next weekend in Dinkytown for a Basic Physics DJ set @10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
