Tha Carter [Explicit Lyrics]

All Music Guide - Andy Kellman
It would be easy to read too much into the title of Lil Wayne's fourth album, especially in light of a mixtape cunningly titled The Prefix that preceded this, which featured the MC over a handful of tracks off Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter's Black Album. The title actually refers to Lil Wayne's actual last name hint: it isn't Wayne, in addition to referencing the apartments run by Wesley Snipes' character in New Jack City.

Mannie Fresh's stout production is in effect as ever, and to the MC's credit, the rhymes are less measured and are all the better for it. To beat that dead horse one more time, the album is far too long and not concerned enough with the quality control, despite including more than enough bright spots to keep the followers following. At just over 79 minutes in length, it's made evident that the length would actually be just over 89 minutes if a CD could hold 90 minutes' worth of music.

    This album is tha greatest of tha year

    I have listened to all of the songs on that cd and their is not one you cant have fun listening to, his main hit right now is "go DJ" which is one of the best on the album. It is a definite "slapper." You can listen to this cd more than once and it will not get old.You should definitely go and buy this cd, it will never come out of your cd player. His beats will move your head all day.I know he has only had a few albums but this one is his greatest.I would recommend this cd to anybody.ONe of the greatest cd's of the year
