As I pointed out in the blurb for Red Rum, Lil Wayne is set to be an even busier man in ‘09 than he was in ‘08, possibly releasing four albums before the year’s end: one re-release (Carter III: Tha Rebirth), the final two albums in the Tha Carter series, and a rock side project (comparable to Kanye West’s 808s & Heartbreak). On Yes Weezy indulges his penchant for bizarre, free-association metaphors, indulging a lyrical persona that our own Nathan S. refers to as Mr. Out-Of-His-Mind. Meanwhile, Pharrell is grimier than we’ve ever heard before, delivering a sharp imitation on the hook and going completely chaotic on the beat. But one question remains: will it be a hit among listeners? If you’re looking for my opinion, just refer to the title.
