As most of the industry struggles to stay afloat, Lil Wayne continues to prosper. After 22 weeks on the charts, his latest album, Tha Carter III, continues to sell like hotcakes (I love that expression), and is rapidly approaching the triple-platinum certification marker. And if that weren’t enough, the self-proclaimed “Martian” has been featured once again on the DJ Drama-backed Dedication 3 mixtape (which dropped on Thursday) and was chosen to join T-Pain, Keyshia Cole, and the Gym Class Heroes on an eight-week winter tour. In the midst of these goings-on, Weezy (of course) also found time to record a few new joints for a forthcoming DJ Big Mike mixtape. The first leak from the project, Street Life (aka The Streets Raised Me), features a sped-up old school sample and (thank the Lord) no Auto-Tune.
