Tha Carter IV is a marked improvement from "Rebirth" and "I Am Not A Human Being," but Wayne has and hopefully still can do much better.

Depending on how you want to gauge it, we’re witnessing the fourth incarnation of Lil Wayne. First there was the borderline kiddie-rapper. Then there was the circa 2005 version, who made many listeners begrudgingly admit that Wayne suddenly started rhyming his ass off. And of course, there was superstar Weezy—endorser of Auto-tune, impregnator of Pop culture vixens and a man prone to the occasional drug-addled haze, a faux Rock album, and still rhyming his ass off if he felt like it. Through each version, even Lil Wayne’s detractors have secretly hoped for that complete, signature album where he reconciled the superior lyrical abilities found on his earlier mixtapes with the chart success he’s found on his last few solo outings. Unfortunately, Tha Carter IV is not that album. The fact that most of us have spent a week debating what the fallout will be from Wayne’s Jay-Z diss on “It’s Good” instead of the album's wins was probably a bad omen.

None of this is to say Wayne’s most recent offering in the “Carter” series won’t wind up as the country’s number one album, and potentially spawn a handful of hit singles. If some of Wayne’s peers had made this album, they’d be looking at their creative high water mark. But after lyrically standing toe-to-toe with the likes of Andre 3000, Jay-Z and demolishing other artist’s best singles via his mixtapes, the stakes and expectations have been raised for Wayne. This time around, he occasionally pushes the envelope with “How To Hate” and the Bruno Mars assisted “Mirror.” The latter is a concept track—a rarity from Wayne these days—and the former finds the Weezy and T-Pain duo flipping the script and lamenting over women that have done them wrong.

That’s not to say some of these conceptual risks don’t fall flat on their face. The incredibly popular yet atrocious “How To Love,” finds Wayne exploring one of the few genres he hasn’t tried to crossover into yet—acoustic soul. He’s surprisingly on key as a vocalist, successfully ditching the Auto-tune crutch he used on “Lollipop.” But the Kenny Chesney vibe and corny concept of reforming one of the chicks he just asked to “jump up on that dick and do a full split” a few songs before rings hollow. If you’re not a die-hard Weezy fan, you may constantly find yourself trying to reconcile that opinion with the fact that “How To Love” is the eighth most popular song in the country.

Drake and Wayne confirm that they do indeed have enough chemistry to pull off a joint album with “She Will,” but they both revisit old territory as opposed to taking any risks or offering any substance. Weezy recycles his metaphor about life and/or karma being some type of female twice within the opening 45 seconds; then he makes one of his many references to cunilingus, all while continually patting himself on the back for pedestrian bars and punchlines.

On what is Lil Wayne’s ninth studio album, there’s very little of the spontaneity you would expect from someone whose calling card is non-written, unrehearsed, free-associative rhymes. The double-time and drawn out cadences he experimented with back on “Fuck Wit Me Now” or even as recent as “Money On My Mind” have been abandoned for a staccato flow accented by the ever-popular hashtag rap. Thematically, Tha Carter IV is sequenced better than any of its predecessors except for Tha Carter II. The sonic backdrops from Bangladesh, Detail and Polow Da Don compliment each other well without getting monotonous. But you won’t find any surprises like “Shooter” or “Let The Beat Build.”

Granted, you don’t buy a Lil Wayne album hoping for spiritual enlightenment, but even previous moments like “Tie My Hands” are conspicuously absent. At the very least, Wayne earns cool points for having a who’s who of Hip Hop royalty rhyme his interlude and massive “Outro” posse cut without actually joining in on the fun. It’s a flippant move, but the pairing of Tech N9ne and Andre 3000, is nearly worth the purchase price alone. In the end, it’s almost symbolic because the Wayne who once rhymed hammock with sandwich and previously held court with these top-tier emcees isn’t here this time around.

    What I'm not getting is how people are JUST NOW finally saying things about how Wayne is falling off when I been saying them for years. Wayne repeats himself way too much, on Tha Garbage IV he started off a line with "life's a bitch..." or "fuck the world..." about 200 times through the whole album. He just keep using similes and metaphors with EVERY line, which means he sacrifices a complete thought for a damn punchline. Now Tha Garbage IV comes out and people are saying these things and I'm more like "It took yall this long to figure that out?"

    I've loved Weezy since the 90's and this album wasn't what I expected. Plenty of great songs, but room for much improvement on others. Still the best rapper alive, but I think he's set the bar so high with his tapes and previous Carters!

  • Lewis Bolton

    I really don't understand why everyone hates this album. I'm an Englishman and my main love of music is Avant-Garde Jazz or anything with a bit of substance. This album blew my mind. This is the album that got me interested in Lil Wayne, He is a Poetic Genius plus the beats are Dark as Fuck. I think in years to come, people will look back on this in a different and more positive light.

    This was disappointing as hell! What kills me most is how that whole crew think this is Classic shit! It disappointed because Wayne sounded uninspired and limited. P***y, D**k, Muthaf***a, and the letter F was in every other line thoroughout the entire album. Reminds me of 500 degreez with a little better production. Not hate, just not good, point blank!

    Lets be honest here people 12-19 year olds aren't the only reason Wayne is selling like this. I think its the female demo age 18-35 who helped him just as much. I know more chicks who got this dude album then guys or young people. So, if there is a problem with any particular demo its the fact that the majority of females who buy Hip-Hop will By Lil Wayne quicker then most of our favorite rappers. Not a Wayne fan but can't hate on him for making this dough. Congrats to him. Shao vs Wu-Tang best album of 2011 so far

  • Jason Mayala

    A few good beats, nice hooks from other rappers. However horrible repetitive lyrics/easy metaphors along with a mimic of Drake in Wayne's R&B flop "How to Love" make this album pretty awful overall.

    Very much agree witht this review. Weezy can come out with some incredible lyrics. But repeating himself and then coming out with some ridiculously stupid lines really go against him. Until he actually focuses on what he's saying, I don't consider him a top 5 alive rapper. Don't take this as hating cause I'm not, I love listening to Weezy, just wish he'd think a bit more about substance.

  • Jay

    This album is the weakest out of all the carters. too many slow songs where he rappin so slow he might as well be singing r&b. He need more songs like megaman and 6 foot 7 foot where he really rapping. Either spit or get of the mic. later for all them slow ryhmes where five words is a bar. i still mess with wayne tho, he can get back on point next album

    • Jason Williams

      Your comment is on point right here Bro. The way Wayne spit at the very end of President Carter, I wish he'd flow like that more often. He actually said something of substance within those 4-8 bars. And Megaman is the best song on there, he should bring it like on that track imo

  • Destroy and rebuild

    in all honesty this album is no more than a 2/5.

  • JT


  • Chad Bernard

    Ok lets be real the album is terrible. Little wayne is and has always been way overrated. The only person that compared him to the greats was him until he kept on begging to be mentioned with Jay z and big no one else did. So lets leave the guys who have proven bodies of work to back up their greatness out of this like Jigga, Nas, kayne,Eminem etc. Lets just talk about rappers who haven't gone platinum that are miles ahead of wanyne. Not in sales but in skills. All of these artist can be found on this site. skyzoo kills him, sean price kills him, talib kweli, common, saigon, j.cole, elzhi,royce 5'9", and I could go on and on cause I haven't even really touched guys in groups. Straight talk most of the people that think wanyne is great were born in mid to early 90's. The boy didn't get signed cause he was great he got signed cause he is baby's son. He was never great he is never gonna be great he should be glad he signed drake and can make money of him cause in a few years he will be nobody special.

It's not even that it isn't a good has it's moments..but the rhymes are pedestrian..and he's OFF drugs..and his content has gotten WORSE.

    becuz they remind them of asian men with little dicks . and corny ways . WACK ALBUM

  • MBTM

    Why Asian girls go for white men (MOST of the time) is a complex issue; but I think there are a few basic reasons for why this is so common (these are only my opinions except for the stats). One is, men from wealthier, more powerful nations and races will snatch up women from weaker races and nations. For example, in America, more Native American women married white men, rather than the other way around. From a biological and socioeconomic standpoint, women go for money and security. Another thing is, most East Asian women don’t have a strong cultural pride as Hispanic, black, Middle Eastern, and Indian/Pakistani women do. I see Indians/Pakistanis and Hispanics proudly speaking their languages to each other all over college campuses. But Asians, meh, I guess the international students do, but the ones born here don’t do it as much, like the girl in the video who said “when my ex speaks Mandarin, he sounds very gay to me.” Most East Asian women love white culture and desperately want to be a part of it. Asian culture is very patriachal and puts alot of pressure on Asian women to be sweet, humble, submissive (especially around their controlling husbands, fathers, and meddling Mothers-in law), beautiful (aka: look as caucasion as possible), highly educated, an expert chef, and constantly pregnant with boys. Marrying a white man and rejecting Asian guys is a way of rejecting a culture that rejected them first and is a way of finally escaping an oppressive culture and easily assimilating into the liberty, loving majority. White, western raised men, grew up in a culture that (at least nowadays) looked upon women as equals and have been courting/dating longer than Asian cultures have (Asian cultures have only recently started shedding arranged marriages) thus they are generally better with women and relationships. They know how to not be too shy around girls or (as is the case with Indian/Pakistani guys) seem too desperate and needy either. Asian women (having been raised in an oppressive society) are experts in being gentle, humble, and submissive. This highly feminine sweetness can be very appealing to white men who are surrounded by white women who (because of the feminist movement and modern cultural views) in a sense have forgotten how to be women and aggresively demand equality in marriage rather selflessly serve their husbands as Asian women are trained to do. Asian women are thrilled at the prospective of having a husband who actually appreciates this about them, rather than take it for granted as Asian men do, because Asian men are generally used to it. The humbleness of Asian women, and the appreciativeness of white guys creates a perfect combination. According to statistics: white-white couples have a fifty percent divorce rate, Asian men/white women have a seventy to eighty percent divorce rate, and Asian women/ white men have a twenty to thirty percent divorce rate. Although Asian marriages last longer than western marriages, we have to admit, the few good western marriages that do exist have a special depth that Asian marriages usually lack. Women of all cultures crave that, especially Asian women, who don’t want to end up like their parents- just “tolerating” each other instead of being truly in love and having a best friend for life. Hollywood, romance novels, and other love stories usually portray white men as the handsome (preppy) ultra cool hero who sweeps the woman off of her feet. Usually, Asian guys are the nerdy side kicks. Indian guys have comical accents, medicore/below average looks, goofy personalities (Mean Girls, The Simpsons, Harold and Kumar, etc) and Chinese guys are computer nerds, math geeks, creepy serial killers, or just plain weird (William Hung). Many Asian women (unfortunately) buy into this stereotype that white guys are cool and Asians guys are silly, feminine nerds. The irony is, Asian women on the other hand, are viewed by Hollywood and society as beautiful and exotic (rather than nerdy and geeky). White society has a different standard of beauty when it comes to Asian people (men and women). You’ll rarely see a truly hot Asian girl with a white guy. I saw a pair of Pakistani sisters once: the older sister was short, dark, talked like a trucker, and had a large nose. Her younger sister was thin, tall, porcelin white, and had silky straight hair. The younger sister is the ideal Pakistani beauty, and yet her older sister (who Pakistani guys wouldn’t even look twice at) married a gorgeous, tall white lawyer. Speaking of sexual attraction, human beings are generally attracted to people who are different from them- but not too different. White skin and black skin is too different. But Asian and white is different, but close enough. Because white people think Asian women are exotic and lovely, and because Asian women are so enamored by white culture (including white looks) the thought of having a child with blonde hair and other caucasion features is appealing to them. And also, if you’re a minority living in another country, the odds are against you that the “purity” of your bloodline will last a long time. If you are a new immigrant (Asian/black/hispanic) living in America, within a few generations, your bloodline WILL get mixed in with other races. If you have a problem with that, go back to your home country, because that is an undeniable fact. Women (modern, open minded ones at least) usually aren’t as concerned about bloodline and preserving their heritage as men are. Thus, you’ll see more minority women with white men than the reverse. The only exception is black women/ white men which is a whole other story, and will require another blog entry. Finally, minorities usually produce their own little cliques when they live in another country. They are encouraged to see everyone in the group as their brothers and sisters. Therefore, Asian women will look at Asian guys as brothers in this strange new land, and see white guys as exotic, potential romantic partners. I have an Asian female friend who said she wouldn’t date Asian guys because “its like Im dating my brother.” These are only my guesses. Feel free to reply!

    9. Lil Wayne Apologizes To Jay-Z For Saying He Was Better Than Him Date: February 2007 What Happened: Responding to Jay-Z coming out of retirement in a December 2006 interview with Complex, Lil Wayne addressed Jay-Z saying, “It's not your house anymore, and I'm better than you." But Wayne soon backtracked a February 2007 interview with XXL: ““I wanna apologize to Jay and his family and friends, because I was asked that question and they put it in there like I was just feeling like, ‘Oh, you know what, nigga? I’m better than Jay!’ They came at me like, ‘So you say you’re the best. Can you say that you’re better than everybody? Would you say you’re better than Jay?’ I was like, ‘Yeah, nigga, I’m better than everybody!’ But I’d like to throw that apology out there ’cause of whatever trouble I caused, I ain’t want that to happen.” Complex Says: First they love you, then they hate you, then four years later they threaten to kidnap your wife for ransom.

    I'm just going to say this, having heard the hype: When the general consensus of the population who listened to this album and decided that THE best track of your is the one track you are not on, that says VOLUMES. That speaks more towards Weezie's "growth" as an artist who's trying to master his craft, and apparently failing at it. Apparently, this doesn't matter, cause the album did what it was supposed to do: sell to 12 to 19-year-old females and mega thirsty guys chasing them. By the way: Nas's verse on the Outro>>>>>>everything Wayne put down on this junk.

    This is a good review but if you wanna read a better got over to and read the review by Two Twits Talking Shit... and for the guy below me, if you have to listen to an album 20 times to force yourself to like you prolly shouldnt be listening to it.

  • Anonymous

    what gets me is people won't acknowledge this is wayne against two super stars and he's holding his own. Nobody can deny that. I personally had to listen to WTT about 20 times to force myself to feel it like most of you probably did. Lil Wayne takes more chances with his beats, material, etc. on c4 than WTT. Now it doesn't matter about the numbers of records he sells? Even Jay (some of your idols) said Men/Women lie, numbers don't. Also, using autotune after trying to kill it because his voice just didn't work was jay being a hypocrite.

    • UndaDogg

      Besides The-Dream possibly using auto tune on No Church in the Wild, how was Jay being a hypocrite? He didn't use it. Plus numbers don't lie, but it also doesn't dictate which album was better. WTT may not have sold as much even as it did go platinum but it is the better album by far.

    • WTT

      Your a fucking idiot and you must be deaf to believe "wayne takes more chances with beats"? LMFAO, how much cum has been squirted in your ears to make you believe what your hearing is "good material" WTT shits down C4's throat

    Wayne just didn't have that spark, R.E.D album is the best hip-hop album out there, I am not basing shit on sales, I care about that, I am care about the actual album and it's message

    yo i feel bad for the featured artist who didnt get to hear the album till it dropped. hyping up the album and shit thanking weezy for a classic lmao all them niggas look stupid now.

    Not as good as C2 and almost as good as C3 but not bad wish it was like 5 tracks longer though

  • Moneygrab

    When you do a album consisting of only punchlines,metaphors and puns, your bound to say a lot of wack shit. Exactly why Carter 4 fell hella short.

  • lets be real

    the album is good point blank. haters gonna hate no matter what wayne puts out, if it was really garbage why would so many ppl be buying it???

    • Jay

      Dude his name is lil wayne, thats why ppl bought it. It s what he did in the past why ppl still follow him. He didnt deliver on this one.

      Let's keep it real Carter 4 Sucks,yes its gonna be platinuum but that's not cause its good it for the fact his marketing demographic is White teens who don't know shit bout hiphop, I like Wayne but this album is not better than Red album or Waynes Carter 3!

    • being real

      so many people bought the album because lil wayne fans by his shit no matter what it sounds like. hell yeah haters hate wayne no matter what but you cats that like him would cosign his shit if he farted in the mic. you know if you never heard of lil wayne and this was dude's debut album you'd be laughing at it.

    best album of the year, hands down, no discussions. no one is spittin like this dude. and this website loses credibility for givin the red album a better review than the carter iv. RI-DAMN-DICOULOUS!!

    • TY

      I cant understand you bra, take Weezy's dick out of your mouth before you write a review!! This is not the album of the year, it is very good, but not great. The problem with Lil Wayne is that too many people think that he's better than he is, and as many people think that he's garbage. the truth is that Lil Wayne is a good rapper and tha carter 4 is a good album. not the best, not the worst, just good.

  • Osagz Osagie Alonge

      agreed. no where near the wackest. Not even the weakest in his catalouge. Its just an average album from a supposedly not so average rapper.

      u musta only heard a handful of hip hop cd's 2 say dat,it has sum flaws as 100% of albums ever made do but da "wackest" lol

  • adadad

    I downloaded this album when it leaked, and i was disappointed. for a second i thought it wasnt the real album and i had downloaded some bullshit. I thought the songs would at least be as good as "She Will", which I didn't think was that good. I planned on buying it when it came out...not any more. i'm starting to dislike YM now, more of a G.O.O.D Music and J. Cole person. But hopefully Drake and Tyga doesn't disappoint

  • C-Mo Money

    Ha isnt it funny how polarized people are abot Lil Wayne? Lol, either u think he's 100% trash or he's so good nobody can tell u different. Im more in the center, but lets face it this album was mediocre at best. Not to hate on Weezy but C4 was pretty weak 2.5/5

    • WTT

      @true, how about you fucking listen to the album first before you start dickriding what anybody is saying, i dont care if your agreeing or not, llisten to the album, and until then, no one cares "if you agree with the comment" @whatafuckingKOOK

    • true

      I actually agree with a comment. I don't understand this all or nothing attitude. Haven't heard the Carter 4, and don't plan to, but I'm sure its not as bad as some of these guys make it out to be

  • Trey

    I can't believe people are praising Watch the Throne Album. These old ass niggas making songs called HAM and Lift Off is garbage along with Who gon stop me and that Jungle shit on "Murder to excellence" and Why I love sound like some shit from the 80's. If Jay-Z hate autotune so much why does he have Frank Ocean autotunning on "No Church in the Wild" So you guys can bash Wayne's album all u want, but dont praise Watch the Throne like its a classic because that shit is garbage. Wayne keep making the hits, I rather listen to How to Love than fucking Otis.

    • UndaDogg

      hahaha, the nerve of this clown...

    • Your Confused

      You rather listen to how the love than Otis??? You must be young white girl who is clueless about true hip hop. OTis is the hardest track on Watch The Throne. How to love is not hip hop, it's some taylor swift type a pop ballad. So in other words you rather listen to pop than true hip hop. Then why are you commenting on hiphopdx then? You should be commenting on spin or rollingstion. By the way Frank Ocean doesn't use auto-tune on No Church in The Wild, that's The Dream singing that part.

      Jay and Kanye are on a higher level than Lil Weezy

      Look tool,1) its obvious you have a horrible taste in music just by your last sentence. 2)Wayne keep making hits? So does that mean Jay-z doesn't make hits? Cause last time i checked Jay-Z has more solo hits than wayne and they're much better lyrically. 3) No watch the throne isnt classic but its def better than carter 4 anybody can tell u that,cause theirs def a lot more rapping in that album

    I just want wayne to take a risk. Rebirth was more gimmick than risk. He needs to really reinvent himself. Dude hasnt improved in 6 years! THis album would have been classic in 05 or sumthin but its 2011. This sound is dated. At least Kanye and Jay are trying to do somethin different weather u like WTT or not..

    Liked: 1)Wayne's Charisma/ Presence 2)Some of the production 3)Wordplay 4)Intro, megaman, interlude, president carter Disliked: 1)Total lack of concept and continuety 2)Track order 3)How to hate, so special, nightmares of the bottom 4)lack of wayne on the outro and the shyne feature 3.5/5

  • Stunnaaa

    Wayne's flow has gotten too predictable....his flow consists entirely of punchlines and similies. None of them which have anything to do with each other. You will NEVER be able to guess what the name of the song wold be if u had listened to the song without looking at the title. Such a talent that could have made a dent in history. Oh well, not surprised.

  • Fan of REAL music

    I gave this album 2 stars. My reason is because I expected better due to hype, and album delays. Why push back an album if it's no where near as good as Carter 1,2, and 3? Makes no sense. The album isnt trash, just close to it. Cant be considered "Best rapper alive" if the majority of your punchlines either start or end with "Life is like a" or "Life is a"....Stop feeding the people bs

    • Mark Anthony Harris

      You just answered it yourself: because it isn't up to snuff with the rest of his stuff. Push backs usually happen to lack of quality, lack of buzz, or early leaks.

Hope this is the LP, that people will LISTEN 2 and QUIT dick ridin' wayne so much...his highlight years are long gone (I Can't Feel My Face/Dedication/etc..)


    This album has a few bangaz, but the rest is average to weak. not fuckin with the R.E.D ALBUM

  • Lenny

    I cant believe you people actually say Carter 4 is better than Watch the Throne. I guess yall gonna say Soulja Boy and Waka Flocks's next albums blow Illmatic and Reasonable Doubt out the water

    • LOL QQ

      That is a terrible argument billyblakes. People ride the shit out of Wayne too. I enjoyed C4, but it's not "best rapper alive" material at all. Most of Wayne's punchlines are mediocre at best.

    • billyblakes

      It is better depending on who you ask, ain't nobody goin that far to say Flock's album and Soulja Boy album better than classics. C4 was just the better album. Others feel WTT was better but that's just because it's Jay and Kanye. They can make a whole album about dog turds and people will say it's better. People ride Jay and Kanye's dicks just for the fuck of it.

  • Warren Mazengwe

    I gave this album 3 mics cuz it needs a lot of work. He still uses the same ass punchlines, on a lot of song he half asses it. For makin people wait this long for an album but have such mediocre quality, is a discgrace to hip hop. He hasn't improved at all. He's over saturated. I bet people still wanna crown this lame king of hip hop. get the fuck outta here. I hope he does retire after this just like he promised us a month ago. i like my bitches with long hair.

    this album is just as disappointing as C3 and it's gonna go platinum by this or next week? well, at least nicki wasn't on it. i could rant more but what would that do?

  • Jay-Z - Child Abuse


    The Documentary is bound to generate some criticisms, and it should. He continues the awful tradition of when-thugs-love (a la "21 Questions," "Karma"), with "Special." The song is complete with an oh-so-poetic hook "I want you to know you're special." While not particularly bad, the beat on "Where I'm From" does not meet the high standards of the rest of the LP and could have easily been left off. And while it may seem like nitpicking, his constant name-dropping gets on the nerves after a few listens - it just needs to go. I swear he must say Dre's name about 30 times on the album. I'm sure I won't be the only one to say so, but it is hard not to wish a better emcee got blessed with these beats like, say, Ras Kass - especially when you consider the absolute lack of dues The Game has paid to this point. The guy hasn't even been rhyming 2 years, and it isn't like he that good to warrant the instant superstardom. Still, that doesn't change how good this album is. Two weeks into the year and it is easily the best album of 05 - and I wouldn't be all that surprised if it is still being called that 11 months from now. A lot of people are going to be playing The Game.

    • Almar

      The Only Better Album From '05 that i can think of is Common's "Be" and Kanye's "Late Registration" But "The Documentary" Is Classic.

      Nope. When you start gettin real money and start selling records you automatically become overrated. Jay, Nas, Pac, Big, Em, Wayne, 50 all these niggaz overrated and they all got haters. Most niggaz that rate this shit automatically giving him 1s and shit just off GP. People love shitting on Wayne haha. Niggaz aint listen to his album they came here to shit on his forehead lol

    I think a lot of wat makes C4 weak is the order of the tracks. This album is top heavy. He brings a lot of heat in the begining but it quickly fades. I think this would have made a better tracklist: 1) Intro 2) John 3) 6'7" 4) She Will 5)So Special 6)Megaman 7)Interlude 8) Mirror 9) How to Love 10)Abortion 11)President Carter 12)Blunt Blowin 13)Its Good 14)Outro (add a wayne verse after busta) *I Like the View **How To Hate ***Two Shots

    1. I don't like that "6 foot 7 foot" is on the album. That song is way old... 2. He has a track on there (with T-Pain) that sounds kind of like a mix between "Blame it on the alcohol," and "Can't believe it." not very original... 3. He has a song with Tech Nine and 3stacks and he doesn't rhyme at all... it's an interlude and *I do like it 4. It was nice to hear Nas on the album (he killed it) 5. he has a track where he uses the lyrics straight from a mixtape "freestyle".... I don't like it "Nightmares of the Bottom" 6. I think some of the songs were just "padding" the album... you know, just throwing songs on there to have more tracks I guess...? 7. There are some nice tracks on there (a lot of them have featured artist). 8. Overall, I expected more with all the hype and anticipation, but I still enjoy listening to some of the tracks and I like Wayne. His mixtapes are better than his albums, and I guess half of what I get on the album is on one of his mixtapes lol 9. C4 is a bit much as a play on words for this album.

    THE STATE OF HIPHOP/RAP HAS REACHED AN ALL TIME LOW...when the general public invests money in artists who only make words rhyme without the presence of coherence and relevance. Look folks...lil weezy is only as artistic as the tight jeans he wears with his ass hanging out which is not very masculine might I add and definitely not "gangster"! Hip hop and the rap genres are suffering bitterly at the hands of individuals who pose as artists. As bad as the economy is, which is why all record sales are suffering, people find cause in buying lil wayne's music only because he is deemed as being popular. There are rappers out such as Eminem, Game, Nas, Scarface, and Jay Z who constanly rip microphones to shreds with their solid skills of coherently telling fascinating stories their reality and how they see the worls as we know it through their rhymes!! This is the very essence of what we came to love about hip hop and the rap game. You need to stop supporting artists who dont take the time to at least bring you nothing but their very best offerings, in terms of music, when they try to convince you to spend your money to make them rich and live in oppulence while the majority of our society lives mediocre at best. All the comments on here that say or imply that lil wayne is the best when it comes to rapping is apparently unaware and misguided as to what real skill sounds like on the microphone!!

    a good album nothing over the top could have being better but i guess if you a wanye fan you wont be too dissapointed.

  • barry

    This shows that Hip Hop is dying. Poor beats and lyrics. Lil Wayne will probably sell a couple of million even though this is a poor album.

  • Kaan Özel

    Whack as album . 1 star

  • WhyWereDisapointed

    The reason why everyone is making a big deal about this is becuz Wayne failed our generation. Jay-Z, Nas, and Em did their part to move the genre forward, just as Big and Pac did before them, and as Rakim, Slick Rick, Krs, and Kane did before them. Wayne is by far the most popular rapper of this gen. With that power he can do great things, but he chose to spit on it. Kanye is the only rapper from this gen dropping that real shit. Luckily, the next generation looks pretty promising with guys like Cole, Kendrick, Cudi, J. Electronica, Curren$y, and even Drake putting out quality material.

      people like whatever they wanna like. people support his albums. if that's the case then Birdman would be buying all his albums since Tha Block Is Hot and he'd be broke as fuck. Explain why these niggaz still around after all this time then? Hatin ass niggaz smh

  • Jarod Williams

    Of course this was not his best album. I agree young money and cash money bought north of 500,000 units to boost sales. The only way this album could have actually made some REAL money and noise is if he had taken the songs from his mixtape "Sorry 4 the Wait" and put them on instead of the tracks on "Tha Carter IV".

      Cosign I know Baby bought back 500,000 units and wayne fans know it to.

  • Actually...

    How to Love is one of the best tracks on C4. Its the ONLY song that has a real concept lol. Everything else is just a punchline fest with no purpose.

  • NotBad

    This album is actually not BAD, its just AVERAGE. Minus "How to Hate", "So Special" and the played out singles "6'7", "John", and "How to Love", its actually pretty dope. VERY limited subject matter (One of the least substantive albums from a rapper on waynes level ive heard), but Waynes flow and wordplay are on point. The production, though typical, is pretty crisp. 3.5/5

  • Hip Pop Killed Hip Hop

    Damn 870-900k his first week, these kids just put the nail in the coffin for Hip Hop. RIP Hip Hop and Die Hip Pop I still know for a fact that young money and cash money bought 550,000 units of the Carter IV to pump up sales, so rest of the idiots (wayne stans) would go buy and think it's great cause it's selling. IT's con game Baby and Slim is doing on the public.

    STop it with the Lil Wayne Jay-Z comparisons. Just stop it. It's like comparing LeBron to Jordan. Just plain ignorant. C4 is Wayne's 9th album. BP3 was Hov's 11TH. Counting collaboration albums like Watch The Throne and Best Of Both Worlds, Jay-Z has 15 albums, 12 of which are #1's. C4 will be Wayne's 4th #1. Jay-Z sold 31 million records in the US ALONE, with his Highest selling album (Vol. 2) selling 8 mill worldwide. Wayne has only sold 8 million TOTAL, with highest selling (C3) moving 3 mill. Jay-Z has 4 #1 singles. Wayne has 2. At metacritic, which is a site that averages the ratings of all album reviews from publications like Rolling Stone and XXL, Jay-Z has an overall score of 75/100, one of the highest for a rapper; with his highest rated album (The Blueprint) receiving an 88/100, indicating "universal acclaim". Lil Wayne has a score of 62/100, not bad but not Hov. His highest rated album (Tha Carter III) received an 82/100. The only the Wayne has more of than Jay-Z are mixtapes, tatoos, and fairweather fans that love him now but will be no where to be found 10 years from now. Is Lil Wayne better than Jay-Z right now? Depends on who you ask. Is Lil Wayne better overall? NOT A CHANCE. Its still up for debate weather Jay-Z is the best to ever do it or not, but Wayne is no where near this mans legacy. PERIOD. This album gets a 3/5 from me btw. Average.

      KOBE will fuck MJ up on the court. Get of Jordan balls dumb ass niggaz. Kobe broke mad Jordan records. Weezy over Jay in every swoop niggaz hahahahaha

      Ha! That Nigga said Jordan overated. That is fucking hilarious and plain damn stupid all in one failed swoop.

    • WTF

      Kobe better than Jordan??? LMAO You lost your argument right there

    • lottiemac

      LeBron to Jordan? More like Kobe to Jordan and Kobe better. Jordan overrated. Where you been B? Weezy done had countless number one singles and he more relevant than Jay-Z. How is it this nigga Weezy could drop the Carter 3 and it go platinum first week? Then, 3 fucking years later the follow up, the Carter 4 is projected to sell 900,000? Who the fuck doin shit like that in Hip Hop? NO ONE. Yo statements was ignorant itself B. Face it, Weezy been hot on a national scale since Carter 2 and on a global scale since Carter 3. And he only 28 years old. This nigga surpasses Jay-Z.

    • pimptologist

      man fuck both them niggaz, simpletons feed into that stupid bullshit and been doin that for years. Jay-Z is a one dimensional rapper that don't rap about nothin but bullshit. Lil Wayne model his whole career off Jay and now look. JAY-Z KILLED HIPHOP. He the reason all niggaz wanna rap about is drugs and money. That shit is garbage. That's why neither one of em could fuck with 2Pac. Them niggaz ain't that versatile when they spit B. SMH.

  • JY

    I've spun WTT, I've spun RED, I've spun C4 and the only one I can listen to from first track to last is RED. It has a coherence that the other 2 albums lack (they aint whack but they just don't have the same listenability). People hate on Game for his features. Wayne got plenty of those on C4. WTT was made by 2 dudes. So people stop hating. All these albums are keeping hip hop alive. I know you're not thinking the New Boyz or Kreayshawn are doing that. come on now

  • nard24

    C4. Great Album.Culdv Been Better. But My N*gga Went In On em. YMCMB

  • Nico 3

    Teflon Don? That shit sucked.

    • Anonymous

      It was big all over including in your research...i said commercial albums and i classify both C4 and WTT as commercial. Ross has people singing they thing their big I think i'm Mc a spinoff of I'm not a star used by Lil Wayne in 'John' to having Shyne start rapping like him to Some guy playing off of I'm MC Hammer with 'Call me T.I.'...the proof is right there...

  • Anonymous

    Both WTT and C4 are good albums - WTT closer to being just OK, but they aren't blueprints on excellence in creating an album for any of the stars. WTT fails miserably when compared to Nas/Marley colab album. Lil Wayne's fails compared to Rick Ross's Teflon Don Album. I still see Telfon Don (i know people hate Ross but it is what it is) as the sickest Album so far out of these commercial joints.

      I figured it out...the WTT album drags when all they've talked about haters and their money and lavish lifestyle and then on the last 2 out of 3 tracks, they try to be conscious?!? i don't mind them trying something new, but made the album drag because it seemed like filler because they didn't sequence or set the listener up for anything conscious. And Jay sounds so out of place. He cares about money, not social issues, but i don't mind himself doing something new, just set it up where it doesn't seem like they were thrown on just to complete the album.

  • lol

    I cant believe people still take reviews here seriously, they gave Encore a higher rating than Relapse i mean cmon...

    • False

      Nah buddy, Encore was dope...just too many fillers 1. Evil Deeds 2. Yellow Brick Road 3. Toy Soilders 4. MOSH 5. Puke 6. We As Americans 7. Never Enough 8. Ass Like That 9. Mocking Bird 10.Spend Some Time 11.Curtains Down 12.One Shot Two Shot 13.Rain Man Reviews: Dx=3.5/5 Rolling Stone=4/5 Blender=4/5 Uncut=5/5 Village Voice=9/10 MSN=9/10 USA Today=3.5/4 Encore is far from a mediocre.....Just too many fillers like, My first Single, Big Weenie, Crazy in love, etc, etc ! Feel me ?

  • This not even bootlegg material

    I'm so glad I downloaded this shit for free, because if I had spend my hard-earned money like the some the idiots on here, i would get my money back for this nonsense.

  • muktarssk

    dis is what i expected...An album full of gangster nursery rhymes that dont send any message 2/5

  • jay

    listened too it a couple times aint a bad album... too much haters on here smh

    • Anonymous

      it's hate when you trying to shit on the nigga wit bullshit comments and not back it up in a coherent and articulate manner. you'z a hater saying C4 garbage or he wack as fuck w/o givin valid reasons.


      Why if someone does like a album, song or artist is it "hate" nowadays??? By y'all dudes logic if I got out to eat and don't care for he meal, I'm hating??? This term hate only came on the scene as a way for wack artist to hide their lack of talent...

  • ladubbel

    for all the crack talk I actually expected this album to be worse..i was pleasantly surprised!! its not bad the production, HOWEVER for a kid who claims to be amongst hip hop lyrical royalty, he cud have done better lyrically..JUST like Jay and Kanye on watch the throne..if thats how you define the best hip hop has to offer then hip hop is dead..cos that album was just ok...I guess for sum of yall it pays to ride dick but WTT is not a classic, neither is this album.. I give it a four..hell id give it a 4 JUST for the interlude and outro alone..

    • Anonymous

      agreed 100%. both albums are good albums - WTT closer to being just OK, but they aren't blueprints on excellence in creating an album for any of the stars. WTT fails especially when compared to Nas/Marley colab album. Lil Wayne's album is what it is, but is it the best? I still see Telfon Don (i know people hate Ross but it is what it is) as the sickest Album so far out of these commercial joints.

  • Kaan Özel

    Wackest album in history

  • CC5

    worst album too many lil wayne dick licking, he hot and all but man. its so fucking overrated man and plus album sales dont make it the best album of the year. Illmatic, Chronic, Doggystyle, Blueprint, all the other classic albums never did big first week numbers like C4 so thats my point bitchessss!!

    • wolfpack324

      listened to it enough, verdict still stands: C4>>>>>WTT, Weezy killed two birds wit one stone, two niggaz with 1 album. He a beast. C4 Classic get over yourself.

    • Please again wolfpack

      Watch The Throne spoke on topics that most rich and successful black folks are scared to touch upon. Did you actual listen to the album? They rap about nonsense of black on black crime, religion or lacktherof and warning black men in the community to take care of there children and raise them right.They also talked about the downside to fame and success. Go listen to the album again,this time pay close attention.

    • wolfpack324

      Jay is not the best to ever do it. You basing that off that bullshit ass album him and Kanye dropped. 2Pac is miles ahead of this nigga. Most of the albums these niggaz rappin bout bullshit: flyin to paris, glamour, glitz, brag rapping, money, this shit ain't nothin new. Where's the message in that?

    • Anonymous

      that's funny everyone says Jay has been relevant for many years...throw that argument out the window. Wayne has made a lot of albums (more than Jay), which means he should be old news now, but he stays popular and keeps his demand. Stop jocking on jayz. you can't deny this.

    • Please WolfPack

      Jay-Z deserves his stans for how consistent and relevant he's been in the game. Lil wayne hasn't accomplished a fraction yet of what Jay's done in game. Watch The Throne has a message behind it that's why majority say it's way better than C4. Yeah Hov is on the greatest to ever do it and it shouldn't be no denying that.

    • wolfpack324

      on the contrary, too many lil wayne haters. jay-z so fucking overrated people stay licking his nuts. he not the best rapper alive. c4>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>wtt

    5 star album. CLASSIC. Straight and simple.

  • Alex Spacee

    it's ight but most of the songs have been heard nothing new but how to hate not even that good of a show

  • Nico 3

    I'd give the album 4 stars just for 6 foot 7, The Tech Nine Interlude, John & President Carter. Predictably, the rest of the album doesn't quite match up. It's not a classic, but it's not a dud either.

  • Jarrett David Grimes

    Average. Didn't make me any more of a fan or any less. Tha Block Is Hot - 3.5/5 Lights Out - 3/5 500 Degreez - 3/5 Tha Carter - 4.5/5 Tha Carter II - 5/5 Tha Carter III - 4.5/5 Rebirth - 2.5/5 I Am Not A Human Being - 3/5 Tha Carter IV - 3.5 Dude is 9 albums in. I'm for quality over quantity. He needs another classic to cement his position.
