Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” was released this week, with seemingly mixed results. I hated it at first, but after a second (maybe third, fourth) listen, some of the songs really grew on me (President Carter, She Will, Nightmares of the Bottom). That is definitely a huge step down for Lil Wayne– usually I can listen to anything he’s put out and instantly love it. But I don’t hate it! However, it’s got to be said that there’s definitely a sense that a past stage in his career is lost on this album.
What’d you think of “Tha Carter IV”?
