Biography

Lil Wayne skates towards the future at light speed. Constantly recording music and honing those extraterrestrial rap skills, his wild work ethic will never allow him to slow down or stop evolving. That's why he's deservedly become a record-breaking hip-hop icon with millions of albums and digital singles sold, four Grammy Awards under his belt, and legions of fans worldwide. However, ...

1.0 out of 5 stars One of the worst albums ever made February 4, 2010
By Dave
Format:Audio CD
Please believe me, I am not saying this is one of the worst albums ever made because I'm a Wayne hater. I really do like Wayne as a rapper. But this album is just plain messy and should never have been made.

The concept for this album clearly came about while Wayne was on an extended weed, ecstasy, and syrup binge, and he truly believed that he could become the next big rock star. He couldn't have been more wrong. There are some artists that can expand beyond their original area of expertise and become successful in other artistic endeavors (Will Smith and Jamie Foxx for example). Wayne is not one of these artists.

Everything about this album just doesn't work. The music and lyrics are the embodiment of the most obvious of rock cliches, the mixing and sequencing are beyond sloppy, and Wayne's auto-tune-aided "singing" is downright horrible. Wayne decided to take the most superficial elements of mainstream modern rock radio, puree them in a blender, and record the result. Except instead of a delicious smoothie we're left with a glass of vomit.

Rebirth is an embarrassment, for the listener and especially for Wayne. This is truly one of those "WTF was he THINKING???" moments that comes around every few years when a successful artist vastly overestimates his abilities. It is a disturbing example of what can happen when an artist becomes delusional to the point of borderline psychosis and is given free reign to unleash his confused, drug-induced ramblings on the public.

Rebirth does have one redeeming quality, however. There is the William Hung novelty factor of listening to this. The album that is so horrendous that it becomes comical. Listening to this album, I couldn't help but laugh and laugh HARD. Rebirth would fare much better as a comedy album, and it should be marketed as such. The novelty factor is what elevates Rebirth from 0 stars to 1 star.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lil Wayne - Rebirth 1/10 February 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
There's a scene in the 2009 documentary The Carter where the film's main subject, Lil Wayne, fresh off a cough syrup-fueled, barely coherent recording session, tells the interviewer just how he wants to become king of the music world: "To be an ultimate artist, I believe you have to be like me, I try to do everything . . . when you be lookin' for a Lil Wayne album, you gonna be lookin' for the best rap, the best singin', the best songs . . . full of music, I want you to look for that, not just what you look for now . . . I'm re-creating the face of music period . . . that's how I want to be, I do everything good." Throughout much of the documentary, Lil Wayne is incredibly hard to understand, but here the directive is painfully clear. It's the kind of hubris that allows an album like Rebirth to get made, the kind of egomania that causes studio heads to shut their mouths and let the pint-sized New Orleans rapper try to branch out like an overzealous marketer. The Carter shows a man oblivious to the opinions of those around him and confident only in that he is the best there is, wherever, whenever, in whatever. Likewise, Rebirth is the kind of album only the painfully oblivious could make.

His so-called "rock" album, it's clear right off the bat that Lil Wayne is not only deluding himself from everyday reality but also from what constitutes rock `n roll, at least in this day and age. From the hilariously `80s, Guitar Hero-esque solo intro of opener "American Star" to the obscenely grating breakup anthem "The Price Is Wrong," everything here points to Rebirth as a colossal f***up of the highest order, a misjudgment of talent and ideas that any label exec not blinded by Tha Carter III's huge sales should have vetoed within seconds.

2.0 out of 5 stars I waited almost 2 years for this?! February 3, 2010
Format:Audio CD
As the title of my review suggests, I am pretty disappointed. Of course some fans will like it, however this "crossover Rock album" just doesn't do it for me.

You have to give Lil Wayne credit for personally exploring new areas and styles, but this album is completely counter to his previous releases and what has made him popular/prolific. You no longer have Lil Wayne with catchy beats and explosive/clever/raw freestyles or verses. Instead you have a simple guitar tune with him whining the entire time. There are very few freestyles/actual verses... he just seems to mostly repeat the chorus over and over and over in what sounds like an Akon or Kanye West (808 album) wanna-be whining noise. I just don't understand...

The only good song in my opinion is the track he performed with Eminem during the Grammys... and even it is iffy.

1.0 out of 5 stars Why was this released after Prom Queen failed? February 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This album is medicore at best and horrible on any given day. The beats are very basic and I feel if he were going for a rock theme they could at least used better beat. My second problem with this ablum is that his lyrics are weak. I have heard Lil Wayne's mixtapes that were better, his metaphors are horrible also. It sounds as if he were making "high music". 1 of the 2 songs I actually like Drop the world, the only reason I like it was Em's verse inwhich he killed Lil Wayne. This album is not worth buying may while serving time The Carter 4 will be better since it cannot get worse.

1.0 out of 5 stars WTF Wanye!!!! February 4, 2010
Format:Audio CD
What is this? OMG im sorry but Lil Wayne is falling off. Somebody hit me up when the Carter 4 comes out, cause I enjoy rap IDK what this was. I can't stand when rapper turn into singers I just don't get it. O and whats make its worst he pushed the album back so many times and look at the outcome. If your a fan of Lil Wayne I don't blame you for supporting him, but if you are not a Lil Wayne fan don't buy this album. Prom Queen was wack and the new single On fire is worst.

Lil Wayne is not a Rock and Roll singer, he is a rapper and he should stick to it. Though there is plenty of good songs and catchy beats.

Should rappers stick to rapping? Or atleast their own genre?
I don't think all rappers should stick to "their genre." I think musicians of any style should experiment from time to time.

With such experimentation, there's going to be failures. And I do think Lil Wayne's album here is a failure, but I don't really mind that.
