Ok this album was hyped up sooooo much and after the delays and album release date changes you would have thought it was a masterpiece. Instead it kind of leaves you on a "?" note. The beats is kinda TRASH to me and I'm a producer so I am hella picky nowadays. Sure he has David Banner,Kanye West and Alchemist on a few tracks but even they aren't at their best. Like one of the other reviewers said, 14 year old high schoolers who like top 40 pop hits will think this album is gold but if you've heard "Tha Carter I & II" and jammed his mixtapes you will think otherwise. Not to mention his guest appearances are a definitely not my style. I'm from that dirty south so I can understand if you don't go get Soulja Boy, Hurricane Chris or DJ Unk but theres no reason why Bun B, Ludacris or Andre 3000 shouldn't have been at least considered damn. On top of that, you do not spend 7 minutes of your album dissing Al Sharpton. WE DON'T CARE! This album could have been WOW and it does have its lyrical moments but I'd say save your money or go get any of "The Droughts" or the first 2 Carters. In the meantime I'm gonna apologize to Bun B for taking "II Trill" out of my cd player for this.

Just like everyone else I have been waiting for this CD to drop, and other than TI vs TIP, Ive never been so disappointed with a major rappers album. I used to be a big Lil Wayne fan until he got into all the singing and now wants to be the king of the pop charts. He wastes alot of good production on this album and gets LYRICALLY MURDERED by Jay-Z and by Fabolous. A friend of mine also said that he wanted to release a more "pop" album so that he could sell records. Wow, what a way to lose some of your more loyal fans to sell some records. I guess he really aint the best rapper alive if he has to sell himself short just to sell records, and alot could have to do with the fact that he has been OVERPLAYED and OVERHYPED for the past few years. But if your a radio head and a bandwagon jumper of Weezy's then you might think this is the real deal like some of my friends, but if your not one of those this cd sucks somethin awful. Best tracks:
Mr. Carter (of course)
Shoot Me Down
Playing with Fire
Dont Get it
and 2 of those 4 are mainly cause the production is hot vs anything that lil wayne really has to say. I wasted money on this. Next time Im just gone have to bootleg it, lol.

Finally we have the Carter 3, I must say it is what I expected from Lil Wayne....metaphors scattered all about. I guess this will fit the mold of what's currently going on in the industry (Rick Ross comes to mind). Admittedly, the records has a few high points with appearances from Jay-Z, Busta Rhymes, and Bun B (who all out shined Wayne). However, left to stand along, Wayne is mediocre at best. The album will become an instant hit with the teenie boppers, but not with the grown ups...give us substance.

Wayne wanted every song on the album to stand out and he achieves this with 'Carter III'. Every song on the album is different and they all stand out. Most of the tracks sound like that track on most Hip-hop CDs that you like because it is it is different from the rest. Imagine Nas' "Rewind" (from Stillmatic) or Jay-Z's "1-900 Hustler" (from Roc La Familia) or Wayne's own "Shooter" (from Carter II).

On C3 you have "Dr. Carter", where Wayne is a surgeon who saves hip-hop, "Phone Home" where he lets his alien persona come to the fore, the rock tinged "Playin' With Fire' and others. Most CDs would have only one such track but C3 is full of them which is great because it shows creativity on his part but the price is that C3 lacks cohesion.

C1 was helmed by Mannie Fresh mainly and C2 was produced by TMX (both are missing from C3) and they both had a sound that was specific to each album. And ultimately the first two instalments were street CDs, rooted in Gangsta rap but from a New Orleans perspective. C3 is a slight departure from the Money, Cash, H**s formulae but its not clear what goes in its place. Finally, while Wayne does show off his skills on the MIC he rarely gets personal (only in glimpses) & given the hype around him right now most of us would have liked to get into his head a little more. This is the only thing that prevents this CD from classic status because song for song nothing coming out in 2008 is touching it.

"A Milli", "3 Peat", "Mr. Carter" these aren't just songs they are events. Not to mention what "Lollipop" and "Got Money" are doing to radio. Tracks like "Tie My Hands" and "Dr Carter" will keep any 't rue school' head happy. "Comfortable" with Babyface ages so so well.

i respect Weezy's hustle skills and the fact he is Prolific and Productive,but musically when it comes to what he puts out on himself, there is alot to desired. the tracks feel like they are just tossed together and nothing feels tied together. his flows are lazy and just kinda are there. he has a pressence but it never comes all the way out musically and this album is overhyped and getting way more attention than it merits,but I give Wayne His dude for being on the Grind and pushing himself to sell when you hear all the time about file sharing this, downloading this,etc... excuses for not putting your best foot forward. wayne didn't bring it musically on this,but he did give the people what they wanted with hard work. but he needs better tracks to match the Hype.
