Editorial Reviews

Product Description

For his fifth album, Lil' Wayne has stretched his wings further artistically than ever before. Besides utilizing the production talents of the legendary Mannie Fresh, he's also enlisted beats from the up and coming team Doe Boys in addition to self producing some cuts as well. Fans can expect special guest appearances from CMR artists such as Baby, Mannie Fresh, Lil'Mo, and other CMR Artists. The first blast from the album is the red-hot anthem, 'Fireman'. Universal. 2005.

Amazon.com

Who would have thought back in the Hot Boys' early days that it'd be Lil Wayne who not simply survived his older peers like Juvenile, but ended up thriving by the time he reached Tha Carter, vol. 2, Weezy’s fourth album. He sounds more confident as an MC--but more importantly, he wields a genuinely impressive array of different styles (as opposed to countless one-note rappers), from the chattering, thuggish "Fireman" and the languid style of "Oh No" to the emotional, introspective "Feel Me." In some ways, he actually bears a resemblance to rap's other major "Carter" (Jay-Z), not just in his increasingly effortless flow but in his assertiveness as a leader. In other words, he's matured in all the right ways as an artist. His album is still longer than it needs to be--22 tracks, 77 minutes--but even the filler is listenable while the best songs, like "Receipt," "Shooter," and "Hustler Musik" help establish this as one of 2005's last great albums. --Oliver Wang

I can honestly say that I had no idea what Cash Money Records was or who were the artists on there until I saw Juvenile's video for "Ha!". As far as Down South music was concerned I had just got into liking No Limit Records and I had awlays been fans of Down South artists like Outkast, Scarface & The Geto Boys, etc. Eventhough, I liked Ha!, I didn't know what to expect from a Juvenile CD, so I didn't purchase any Cash Money CDs. When I saw B.G.'s video for "Bling Bling" that fetaured all of the Cash Money artists then I decided to purchase Juvenile's "400 Degreez" and B.G.'s "Chopper City In The Ghetto". After listening to both CDs, Cash Money was addded to my favorite Down South list, especially once No Limit Records started getting weaker once they let their producers, Beats By The Pound, stop producing the majority of their tracks.

One of the first tracks that I remember hearing Lil Wayne on was a track called "Play'n It Raw" that was on B.G.'s "Chopper City In The Ghetto" CD. The song featured B.G., Juvenile, Lil Wayne & Turk, which I would later find out were The Hot Boys. Once I heard Lil Wayne on that track, I knew that once he made a solo CD that he would be a force to be reckoned with. Once The Hot Boys came out with "Guerilla Warfare", which was a nice CD by the way, Lil Wayne was amped and ready to drop "The Block Is Hot". Once I heard that CD I knew that Lil Wayne would be ready for big things. The CD would end up in heavy rotation and my favorite tracks ended up being the title track, "Kisha" w/The Hot Boys, "High Beamin'" w/B.G. and my all time Lil Wayne favorite track "Loud Pipes" w/Juvenile, B.G. & The Big Tymers.

Lil Wayne's next CD was entitled "Lights Out".

I don't listen to that much southern hip-hip. It's not that I'm hatin', it's just a matter of preference. Hell, I'm the first to admit that the South has the rap-game on undisputed lockdown. I copped this Lil' Wayne album out of curiosity due to all of the high praises on this website. I must admit that I'm shocked at how tight this platter is - not only from a lyrical perspective, but the conceptual totality of the package. Weezy may have to replace "Lil" with "Big" because he has pushed his game to top-tier status. This is the type of album that takes a rapper to the next level. This is a clout album, a statement album, a mess with me now album. With this disc I put Weezy in the top-five category of active MC`s. There are numerous standout cuts on this disc, with a considerable amount of stylistic variance. Aside from a couple of skip-tracks, my only real beef is that there are a couple of cuts when Wayne sounds a bit like Jay-Z and Kanye, and style-biting is never-ever acceptable. In Wayne's case it's unneeded because his individual talent and style can stand alone. However, I offer him one bit of career advice - cut your hair, put on your shirt, and make real music money.

I anticipated getting this cd for a looong time...almost 3 months. After coming off of The Carter, anybody would have expected something truly magnificent. Don't get me wrong...besides Juvenile, Wayne is the best rapper out there. But this CD failed to meet my expectations. Here is why...

Mannie Fresh just recently left Cash Money, which left a lot of disarray in the record company. For those of you who don't know, Mannie Fresh has been behind every single one of Lil' Wayne's albums in the past. This, in turn, has been the backbone of all of his albums in the past. Not in this one though. Jay-Z has been a bit of a inspiration in Wayne's life recently, and I think that this rubs off a bit on this new album (don't believe me? Listen to some old Jay-Z albums and then to this CD like I did...you WILL notice some similarities!) Wayne considered not even making this album...but he did anyway. He was under a lot of pressure...and he did a pretty good job. It doesn't deliver the same charm as the first one or his old stuff, but I still have respect for the man.

So what is the overall view, in my opinion, of this album? Still worth getting if you like Lil' Wayne and Cash Money (or what's left of it)...but expect to hear more East Coast type stuff in it and a little less Dirty South New Orleans type music. I'm out!

Lil Wayne is the hottest MC out right now, but this album could've been better. The Carter is better than Vol. 2. On this album, it's only about 5 good solid tracks, and some people agree, but others refuse to say it's true due to the overwhelming popularity of The Carter.

...Oh yeah, WHERE IS MANNIE FRESH ON THIS ALBUM??? Not on this album!!! That's why this album is not on fire to me!!!

Holla!!!

First of all...I'm here to review this album. Not waste time comparing the artist to other rappers. This is a very good Cd. It maybe as good as his first, or it may not be. It just depends on what kind of listner you are. The beats are well thought of, the lyrics are clever and have relevance to what the song title is. Carter 2 starts out fine and powerful and lets up a little at the end. But not to the point where it gets dull. Each song brings a new sound and doesn't get old. IF you're a Lil Wayne fan, this is for you...IF You're new to lil wayne this is a great Cd to have if you like good lyrics....IF you hate Lil Wayne... why the heck did you waste your time Buying/burning his CD and then waste even more time reviewing it on this site? Why are you even reading this review if you hate him?

Now to "rap" it up
-------------------------------------

Overall i think this album is one of the best I've heard for 2005. If you disagree with what i'm saying, fine then, say this review isn't helpful, I DON'T CARE. Some rappers like 50 cent may get better sales, but most turn commercial to do it while others keep it real. Lil wayne has always kept it real. As for "best rapper alive" I don't know... everyone has their own opinion. But i don't know why everyone is getting so worked up about him saying he's the best rapper alive! Every rapper thinks he's the best at what he does. Arrogance is one of the factors that drives rap music... So What? Big deal. Nobody is the best... there is only "smart,creative and confident" in rap music, nothing else.
