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, ...

Editorial Reviews

Despite their similarities, the Cash Money Clique's challenge to Master P's No Limit empire is well founded. Even the Clique's most mundane celebrations of sex, wheels, alcohol, and dollars benefit from sharper, more imaginative production--not to mention occasional flashes of humor. Tha Block Is Hot, which serves as much as a posse showcase as a Lil Wayne statement, is entertaining even when it's just serviceable. Gangsta clichés aside, the disc is marked by a sense of fun strong enough that you may not even roll your eyes at its claim that Cash Money plans to stick around for the year 3000. Let's hope for their sake that they don't base their investment plans on such predictions. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars On da' real, Lil' Wayne CD is off the hook and then some. November 17, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have nuthin but mad love for all them "Hot Boys." Lil' Wayne has mad skills and some of the tightest lyrics I've ever heard. "The Block Is Hot" is real tight and the beat be bumpin. It's cool to see rappers like Lil' Wayne who be representin to da' fullest for all da' peeps from that DIRTY SOUTH!

5.0 out of 5 stars CMB! CMB! Am I My Brother's Keeper, Am I My...... November 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Lil Wayne continues a hot 98-99 seaon for Cash Money Records. After dropping gems on Juvenile's,B.G.'s, and The Hot Boys album, Lil' Wayne presents "The Block Is Hot". If No Limit isn't careful CMB will be taking over the block. Lil Wayne has too many good songs on this one. Most noticeable, "The Block Is Hot", "Loud Pipes", and "High Beamin'". Mannie Fresh is the "Swizz Beats" on his side of town. All the Cash Money Brothers contribute on Lil Wayne's debut. Even the Big Tymers share quality mic time with the Hot Boys this go around. I would suggest to Master P, to a) break Soulja Slim out of jail b) Make sure Beats By The Pound produces EVERY song c) Have Fiend, Macadon, Mia X, Silkk, C-Murder, Snoop and Mystikal on more songs. d) Have Magic, Ghetto Commission, DIG, Popeye, and Lil Italy take a chill pill and give them a rest. e) Release Da 504 Boyz and the Tank Doggs album ASAP.
If these things aren't accomplished be prepared to "Bling Bling" behind Cash Money for the rest of your career. "THE BLOCK IS HOT! "

4.0 out of 5 stars Tha Block Is Hot: Really Hot January 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
From the first beats of the intro to the last note of "You Want War" Tha Block is hot will have your head spinnig. It is was without a doubt one of the best albums of the year. It has everything, from hard pumping jams to even a bit of Mardi Gras party music. I strongly reccomend this album to anyone who likes rap music.

1.0 out of 5 stars I agree wit Paul January 15, 2000
By Mike
Format:Audio CD
This album is weak. It has a few decent cuts but most of the songs suck. Mannie Fresh is burnt out now. All of his beats sound the same and they have no pound in the car at all. Don't get Juvenille's new album either its worst than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars An artistic statement unlike any other July 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
'Citizen Kain', 'Birth Of the Cool', 'The Illiad'; Every so often a piece of artwork comes along that is so powerful, so moving, that it transcends the boundaries of its medium to define its generation. Lil Wayne's 'The Block is hot' is one such masterwork. It is perhaps the most important musical statement of our generation. Its musical landscape is lush, rich, and textured. Its lyrics are a delicate invective. The combined effect is an artistic expression the likes of which very few in the history of mankind have ever achieved. 'The Block is Hot' is no mere collection of singles, nor is it a self-indulged concept album. It is hard to imagine that a composition so finely-crafted was not carefully planned and designed years in advance.
With such an album one can, of course, not relish in its entire beauty upon first listen. The music is similar to an orange where one must peel layers before sinking their teeth into the actual substance. What lies beneath the surface is undescribable. It indeed may take several years - if not decades - before this piece of art may truly be appreciated and understood. Finally, Lil Wayne even outdoes himself in what may be called the most epic of songs in the history of recorded media. 'Drop It Like Its Hot' featuring his cohorts of the avant garde, B.G. and Mannie Fresh, takes the listener on a 4 minute journey which, once concluded, leaves them feeling as if they've been bestowed the answer to the meaning of life. The careful listener will note the song's understated beauty. It is as bold as it is subtle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lyrics are tight, but Tracks could have been better November 28, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Since I'm from New Orleans I have followed them Hot Boyz since they first started. Ever since I first heard Wayne he was my favorite Cash Money rapper. He always uses ad libs to the fullest and it adds a more personal effect to his lyrics. He also seems to keep coming back with the lyrics that keep us waiting to hear what he is going to say next. Plus to say that he is still young, I know your real age, but I ain't hating, he still has a long time left in this rap game. He is already tight, so just imagine later on with of couple more years of experience will do. Then he doesn't curse! The only rapper to really do this was Rakim! And to be compared to one of the greatest rappers is a big accomplishment for Wayne. On this album, though, I think that he was cheated. His beats weren't hype enough. I don't know what happened. I always look forward to getting hype off of Mannie's(Mannie Fresh) beats, cause the boy always handles his bizzness. But this album for some reason makes me wonder if Mannie is loosing his touch. I hope not. Cause he has been around for...damn...almost ten years with different underground groups busting everybodies azz with the tracks. I, personnally can't get into the lyrics if the beat can't make my head nod. Only half of the tracks on this album fulfilled that. Anyway, Wayne keep handling your bizness and keep coming with the lyrics, but next time don't settle for nothing. If you come hard with the tight lyrics, make them come even harder with the tighter tracks!
