Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Lil Wayne put out enough material in 2007 to inspire a Vibe magazine list of the 77 best Lil Wayne songs of that year alone. That level of output is the primary reason behind Tha Carter III's bumpy ride. The albums opens well with the appropriately boastful "3 Peat," followed by the symbolic torch-passing of "Mr. Carter," featuring Jay-Z. But nothing matches or exceeds that until the Swizz Beatz-produced lark "Dr. Carter" and the album's arguable high point "Phone Home." Framed by simple, bombastic beats from Cool & Dre, Lil Wayne argues in "Phone Home" that he's so far beyond the competition he's extra-terrestrial. Within that track comes a stellar example of how Weezy's reptilian flow can let an inspired aside such as "I'm rare, like Mr. Clean with hair" slip by almost unnoticed. But no artist this prolific can avoid dropping some duds amongst the winners. The disc's three monster hits sound silly ("Lollipop"), annoying ("A Milli"), and generally uninspired ("Got Money") when stacked up against the non-hits. David Banner's musical backing for "La La" provides the kind of brain-tickling inventiveness that Lil Wayne should always have in order to push his gift for verbal absurdity to greater heights. --Kris Kendall

I was officially introduced to Lil Wayne when I heard him on "Play'n It Raw", which was featured on the B.G. release Chopper City in the Ghetto, in April of 1999. I liked the collaboration between The Hot Boys (Juvenile, B.G., Lil Wayne and Turk) so I decided to pick up Guerrilla Warfare, which was released in July of '99. Since I liked most of the songs that Lil Wayne was featured on, I picked up his solo release Tha Block Is Hot, which was released in November of the same year. The title track was the 1st single and I also liked the tracks "High Beamin'" w/B.G., "Kisha" which featured The Hot Boys and "Loud Pipes" which featured Juvenile, B.G. and The Big Tymers (Mannie Fresh and Baby). The entire CD was pretty good so when Lil Wayne dropped Lights Out a year later, I didn't hesitate to pick it up. This CD wasn't as good as "The Block Is Hot" in my opinion, but I still liked tracks such as "Hit U Up" and "Shine", which both featured The Hot Boys, and the 1st single "Get Off The Corner".

Since No Limit Records and Cash Money Records were both on a decline, I didn't pick up any other Cash Money releases until Lil Wayne released Tha Carter in 2004. Once I heard the singles "Bring It Back" and "Go DJ", I figured the CD would be a decent pick up and I was right. My favorite track was "BM J.R." and the majority of the CD was a quality listen.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not As Good As Mixtapes June 11, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not classic, but song for song...the best out June 27, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lame June 21, 2008
Format:Audio CD
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.

Lil wayne is absolutely hilarious, some of the raps he does are way off the wall. A little racist towards white people but what's new, still love his songs.

Lil' Wayne is not as good as people saying he is...
Yeah the carter three was alot of autotune garbage and a few low quality rhymes. I disagree with you on lil waynes metaphors. Ice Cube and Wu Tang clan have better metaphors. So do Canibus and Immortal Technique. lil wayne is horrible. He got worse on the carter three. I can't believe mtv and... Read More

Hip Hop Is Dead
The problem with hip hop nowdays is that good hip hop is still around, just nobody knows about it. Instead we are constantly bombarded with this Pop trash posing as hip hop such as anything done by Drake and the rest of Young Money, Soulja Boy, and Lil Wayne after Tha Carter 2.
