Product Description

Product Description

Tha Carter IV is the long-awaited tenth album from multi-Grammy-winning, multiplatinum hip-hop superstar Lil Wayne, and is the follow-up to his game-changing 2008 set Tha Carter III. The album includes the singles “6 foot 7 foot” (ft Cory Gunz), “John” (ft Rick Ross) and “How To Love”.

BBC Review

I don't need a watch / The time is now or never, Lil Wayne states on the opening Intro here - but he's little left to prove, having been a domestic success from the start. The Louisiana rapper's 1999 debut, Tha Block Is Hot, released when he was just 17, went platinum stateside. Come 2008's Tha Carter III, he'd reached a level of commercial success completely alien to the majority of his peers - the album shifted over a million copies in its first week.

Perhaps the only success to evade him so far is that sought overseas. Tha Carter III is certified gold in the UK, but peaked at 23 on the chart, while 2010's Rebirth landed a position lower. Why British listeners haven't quite taken to him isn't that much of a mystery, though - scanning the charts for rap tracks reveals a preference for artists whose mindsets revolve around material things (and that extends, largely, to our home-grown MCs). Wayne's oddball lyrical tangents - a fantasy ER scenario where he resuscitates failing rappers here, outlandish lines about him being a Martian there - aren't entirely in keeping with 'bling' culture or tales of childhood hardship (which, it should be noted, he certainly went through his share of).

But Tha Carter IV - which has been gestating since 2008, delayed by Wayne's prison spell - makes more concessions to mainstream trends. There are repeated references to the artist's 'recreational' drug habits (the title Blunt Blowin is clear enough, surely), as well as money and the temporary pleasures it can bring. And the 'featuring' list is impressive - among the contributors are Nas, Drake, Rick Ross, Andr� 3000, Busta Rhymes and John Legend - though at times it's hard to determine the influence Wayne himself has had on a track: on Interlude and Outro, for example, it's guests who dominate.

Wayne stalled the release of this set as he didn't want the follow-up to his most successful (commercially and critically) album to date to be a hurried affair. Consequently, he's been able to add nods to his time behind bars - from girlfriends cheating on him while he was incarcerated (How to Hate), to laughing about how he should have taken certain measures to avoid his sentence: "If I knew I was going to jail / I would have f***ed my attorney" (Nightmares of the Bottom). He's also ensured that Tha Carter IV is a consistent collection, tracks generally of a high standard - a high standard, but not quite up to the quality of Tha Carter III. Back then, Wayne rapped like his life depended on it, his mind awash with surreal imagery and out-there concepts; here he's more comfortable, clearly in a happier place but suffering from a slowed creative flow as a result.

But an average Lil Wayne album still outshines the efforts of many a contemporary, and at its best - The Drake-starring slow-burner She Will; the sinister keys of President Carter; Six Foot Seven Foot's rapid-fire rasps over a sample of calypso standard Day O ("six foot, seven foot, eight foot bunch"); the next-chapter statement of intent that is Abortion - this set is a riveting listen. Only How to Love's acoustic strums feel out of place. If you thought him too weird for your tastes previously, Tha Carter IV is the album to introduce you to the never boring world of an artist whose importance remains so significant that, should he finally collapse like the star he is, he's likely to take half the rap game with him.

Mr Carter is back with an array of tracks that pack enough variety in content to keep most happy. From the heavy beats and hard-core lyrics of Wayne and Rick 'Rozay' Ross on the track 'JOHN' to Wayne's more subtle almost gentle approach to the track 'HOW TO LOVE' (FYI - Both tracks have amazing video's)

My only (slight) disappointment was that Nas, Busta Ryhmes and Shyne only appear on the 'OUTRO' and not on full collaborations with Young Moneys General. However Wayne still rocks tracks with the likes of Drake, John Legend and Jadakiss. The albums interlude introduced me to Tech Nine whose style is hot and I will certainly be looking into his progression.

Overall, Wayne still flows with constant metaphor heavy, simile laced lyrics that will raise a smile and have you nodding in agreement and it still supplies the bass heavy Young Money signature sound that fans expect and new cadets signing up to Weezey's army of fans will love.

Out.

I absoubtely loved this CD, some of it was a biut naff and I never liked his skits.
However the classics that he does drop are just that - classics.
Some party bangers and some ballads (in its loosest term).
Would listen to it whole heartedly

6 foot 7 foot is what originally brought me to this album as I heard it from a Youtube comedy cover of it. It definitely isn't as good as Tha Carter 3/4, but it ain't too shabby. Defiitely consigned to listening if you get a chacne rather than recommended lsitening

I absolutely love this album and listen to it regularly. There are many great songs on this album like John, Megaman, She Will and How to love. The only song that in my opinion is a let down is Nightmare if the bottom.
Would defiantly recommend this to anyone.

One of Lil Waynes bestest!

Will recommend to all Lil Wayne fans. Suitable for 18 and above and brilliant to relax and drive in the back ground.

Ok so this album is a pretty poor excuse for a follow up to Tha Carter III which is a quality album. Songs worth listening too again are: She Will (really good tune this), How To Love and President Carter. The rest are cr*p.
