4.0 out of 5 stars Not a classic but close, 25 Jun 2008

This review is from: Tha Carter III (Audio CD)
I can't say i'm a die hard hip hop fan but i found myself listening to this album quite a lot recently. My problem with hip hop albums is that they all seem to be very similar. What distinguishes rap albums these days is if the rapper has a unique voice or style which i feel Lil Wayne possesses. He's got heavy weight producers on this album and i don't feel he let anyone down. He's very witty in songs such as Lollipop and the Let The Beat Build. The track with Robin Thicke - "Tie my hands" is very insightful and shows a rare side of the rapper which is very welcoming. 'Misunderstood' samples the same title track by Nina Simone and he pours his heart out with the prejudice in the States. He attacks Rev Al Sharpton on this track and i can understand where he's coming from due to recent attempts in the U.S to 'cancel' the 'N' word from hip hop artistes. Tracks like Mrs officer and 'Dr Carter' displays his creativity and word play
and the babyface featured 'Comfortable' can be deemed as a cheeky response to Beyonce's irreplacable. Mr Carter with Jay Z is a very good track with Lil Wayne displaying his word play again and the on form Jay Z does not dissapoint either. Some tracks are your usual hip hop tracks with no real substance or meaning but in an album with eighteen tracks and no skits, it's to be expected. All in all, in these days of repititive albums by people like 50cent, this is a welcome addition to the hip hop genre. Not a classic, but a damn good album
