Scott Picks: Lil Wayne

Posted on January 9th, 2013

It’s hard to say Lil Wayne is back. First off, where did he really go? It may seem like it’s been a while since we have heard any (good) Lil Wayne for a hot minute because this is an artist who after all used to drop three tracks a day. He has cooled off a bit but basically that’s exactly what Weezy needed. I’ll never be one of the critics who hear some of Lil Wayne’s “iffier” lines in his tracks and immediately say that he spits out garbage. In truth, for every bad line Lil Wayne has spit he has about two or three quality tracks that speak for themselves. Lil Wayne a bad rapper? Naw b.

But he did go in a different direction that sort of alienated his true fans. His “Squad Up” fans. But the martian is back with some of that fire we have come to expect. The first one is “I Ain’t Nervous,” which will grow on you. The beat has that similar feel to what the rap game keeps relaying out like a conveyor belt of trap but his lyrics go in.

The second is “Bitches Love Me” or “Good Wee and Alcohol” – whichever version you get – that features Future and our homie Drake. Maybe it’s our biased feeling toward the Forrest Hill vet, but when these two are on a track together it simply sounds classy. World class. Though Drake only drops the chorus, this track brings me back to “She Will,” which was a track I loved. Love him or hate him, he is one of the best rappers alive. So when he sounds as though he’s going back to his roots then it’s definitely notable. But I’m still not rocking TrukFit.

Bonus

Can’t get enough of this track. It’s the best of both worlds for an old Dipset fan like me and a new Glory Boys Ent. Fan.
