Tis the season of miracles, and the holidays have come early this year in the form of a track off Lil Wayne’s ill-fated, quasi-rock album Rebirth that miraculously doesn’t completely suck. As opposed to On Fire (bad) and Da Da Da (atrocious), Weezy F.’s latest leak Drop the World is actually pretty damn good, thanks in no small part to a blazing guest verse from Eminem. On the production tip Hit-Boy and Chase N. Cashe definitely get the job done, aptly mixing rock guitars and hip-hop synths, but it’s Drop the World’s lyrics that will have everyone talking. Wayne spits two decent verses… and then proceeds to get annihilated by Em, who’s apparently shifted into full on “f**k you” mode and decided to destroy every rapper who gets on a track with him, even if he’s the guest feature. Guess that settles the “who’s better?” debate, at least for now. If Drop the World had leaked earlier maybe Rebirth wouldn’t have been delayed, but as is, the album’s currently set to drop in February of 2010.
