Album: Follow Me Home

This is a bright track with just the right combination of swag and soul. Chance got the flow, 2 Chainz got punchlines and Weezy got the wordplay.
Album: Cherry Bomb
This right here is; what happens when three creatives merge their talents. Tyler The Creator and Lil Wayne were previously featured on The Game’s Martians Vs Goblins but that track lacked a verse from Wayne verse so this song was the “real” Wayne/Tyler collab fans wanted to hear and the Kanye West feature was a plus adding even more interest. SMUCKERS is a dream track where three of Hip Hop’s biggest personalities get to showcase their rap skills. Lil Wayne with Cash Money and Tyler’s with Odd Future but in the end all three of these artist make GOOD music.

A$AP Rocky really stepped it up on his sophomore album. A$AP Rocky’s At. Long. Last A$AP has a track list filled with some phenomenal artists, Schoolboy Q, Mos Def, UGK and Juicy J but even with all of those features Wayne stole the show.

Album: Crazee & Confuzed
This is Stack$ record but to be honest what people remember the most about this song is Lil Wayne. This Steve Morales produced track is kicked off with a dope hook and nice beat drop… This 07 banger is fueled by sharp synths and a heavy bass. On this song, Lil Wayne represents the south well. Wayne brings the heat with his distinctive drawl and some sooth punchlines.
When this song came out it was inescapable. The relationship between Lil Wayne and Birdman has grown sour in recent years but this is one of their best collaborations. Sometimes it’s not all about what you say but how you say it. Backed by a sick beat, Lil Wayne spit one of his most memorable and catchy verses. He keeps it short and humorous delivering each of his bars with a unique cadence no one can match.

Album: 808s & Heartbreak
Dark, moody and soulful, 808’s & Heartbreak is one of Kanye West’s most experimental albums to date.

The year this song came out it was everywhere. It was one of the best songs of the year, an upbeat tune that had everybody jamming in the classrooms and in the club. It was a huge record. On this sing Drake does his things with some good raps and a hell of a chorus but Wayne holds it down on his verse.
Lil Wayne believes he is the best and isn’t afraid to prove it. A lot of people question Lil Wayne a lyricist seeing his raps as a jumble of non sequiturs and over the top punchlines but on this track Lil Wayne showed how good of a rapper he is. On this track he held his own with two of the greatest rappers to come out of the south, two men with incredible flows and vivid lyrics. Lil Wayne delivered on this track with a heartfelt and thoughtful verse.
No Love is a dope track that showed Eminem and Lil Wayne still got IT, people doubted Lil Wayne’s rap skills after coming off of a less than impressive album release with Rebirth, Eminem also dealt with the same issues. After the release of Relapse fans doubted Eminem’s ability to deliver the way he used to. Silencing doubters and critics, Eminem ignited this track with a ferocious verse and Wayne spit a lyrical verse that won’t be soon forgotten. “No Love” is a great track where two living legends showed what earned them their status.
