In my intro for Lil Wayne’s last single On Fire I wrote that Weezy’s attempt to infiltrate the rock game with his upcoming album Rebirth was like Michael Jordan’s attempt to play baseball, an admirable but ultimately doomed idea. I’d like to take this moment to apologize to MJ for that analogy. As much as Jordan struggled on the diamond he never produced anything as bad as Da Da Da, a barely comprehensible and muddied mixture of Cool & Dre’s music-box-meets-rock-band production, Wayne’s painfully off-key vocals and some rough draft vocals (did he really just say “give me that funky monkey”?). Even when Weezy goes back to his rap roots at the end of the track he sounds off, not flowing with anything approaching his normal dopeness. I could keep going but I don’t want to ruin the self esteem of anyone who actually likes this pile of Da Da Da. Let’s just say my hopes aren’t high for Rebirth, due to drop on December 21.
