    Did anyone doubt it was possible? When Wayne was with Cash Money way back in the day, I thought he was an amateur in the presence of other amateurs. Then he grew dreads, and everyone including me was like, “what was this guy thinking?”

    Overtime, he’s matured in his style of rap, and everyone including me, can’t wait for just 1 more freestyle or underground mixtape to pop-up. If you ask me, Wayne has been advertising his skills that were soon to come on his official album. Genius.

    To those who think this was an overnight success, you my friend are living a pipe-dream. You don’t get that good by wishing and hoping, Wayne made more underground tracks than most reggae artists in the same span of time. It was if we knew Wayne would have a song to any worthy beat… even none-worthy ones got Wayne doing something on it.

    Wayne is officially the hardest name in rap today… sorry Kanye. Props to Kanye West on the “Lollipop Remix” song, I know his verse by heart. Why? Like Kanye said, “You ain’t gonna murder me like everybody else, I’m gonna rap like I got some respect for myself, I don’t do it for my health man, I do it for the belt, man…”
    Listen to it for yourself and you’ll agree, Kanye didn’t get murdered like everyone else that was silly enough to put their rhymes up against Wayne’s.

    I must say, its refreshing to finally have 1 more lyrically talented PRO at the forefront of rap… cause its just pitiful to hear music with no substance. That’s why Lil Wayne has the King’s Crown in Album Sales since 50 Cent’s Massacre disappointment.
