Lil Wayne, Weezy, Tunechi, Birdman Jr., Weezy F Baby, Dwayne Carter, The New Orleans Nightmare…
Basically, the man whose voice used to pound out of my car speakers when I would ride around with the top down during my high school years. The sweet sounds of Dr. Carter were the staple of those riveting nights when I would take shots out of a water bottle filled with $10 vodka, while sitting in my best friends car, parked outside of a party being thrown by the guy in my algebra class who definitely did some shady shit in the school bathroom.
The music that Lil Wayne released back in the 2000’s, his “throwbacks” if you will, are nothing short of genius. I would even go far enough to say they are fire. He was a huge influence on my youth and because of this I will forever be a die hard Lil Wayne fan, I really don’t give an F-U-C-K.
“Weezy F, for fuck you.”
Sooooo I decided to make a list of my top 10 favorite Weezy throwbacks, in no particular order. The songs that never get old and probably don’t get enough recognition. You’re welcome.
