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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just decent... a letdown September 1, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just got the album, so maybe it needs to grow on me or something. Most of this album though is just Wayne coasting, from what I gather. Some of Wayne's best rapping has been on tracks we've already heard ("6'7") and some of the other brightest spots on the album come from guests (Tech N9ne, Nas, Drake, etc.) That's kind of depressing. How many times is Wayne gonna use the same flows, the same similes and metaphors ("life is a ...") and the same scatter-brain subject matter??? None of his songs are ABOUT anything in particular and it sounds like he's just doing one big freestyle for almost the entire album. I miss the songs that were ABOUT SOMETHING... Even if the song just had a loose concept or something to work around. The beats have been better and Wayne has been better. It's not BAD, it's just not GOOD like that. It's an inconsistent effort. I actually found Tha Carter III more engaging than this one... actually, Tha Carter I, II, and III were better than this. Damn... Again, not bad, just not that good either.

After Rebirth (which was an entirely different animal), I Am Not a Human Being and Tha Carter IV, I'm beginning to give up on Lil Wayne. 3 weak and mediocre albums from this dude? I don't think he has it anymore. Wayne can make a reggae album, a Spanish album and the Carter V if he wants to because at this point, I'm not interested in picking up another album anyway. I don't hate the album; I'm just tired of being disappointed.

Updated: 11/22/11 I haven't bumped this album much since the first week or two it was out... Just saying... 'Nuff said.

3.0 out of 5 stars It is what it is August 31, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
Lil Wayne will never match the first Carter in my opinion. His wordplay, his flow, not to mention the amazing production from Mannie Fresh. That one had it all. This is a natural progression from number 3 though. It's definitely got some great production and great guest spots. I'd even say that the guests out-rap Wayne at times, especially Tech and Nas, maybe Busta as well. This will get him even more radio play and I'm sure it will sell a million because this is what's popular in the music industry today. Not saying that's bad but it is what it is.

As far as this album is concerned, there really aren't any "weak" tracks, but there aren't really any amazing tracks either. It flows well though and is worth the purchase if you are a fan. Wayne knows his target audience and serves them well here. Stand out tracks to me are Megaman, She Will, Interlude, Abortion, President Carter, Outro, and Mirror. Mirror should definitely be a single and would be a huge hit, although being a bonus track I'm not sure it could be released. Anyway, buy this if you like him, and if you don't then this won't change your opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Wayne just Q-U-I-T!!! June 23, 2012
Format:Audio CD
How I see it, my stepdad bought this album and I'm surprised a guy in his mid 40's would buy this shyt along w/ Rick Ross group album smh..I'm 20 years old and I listen to listen to cats like Redman, Das Efx, Heltah Skeltah, Sean Price THAT GROWN FOLK HIP HOP! Anyway, he played it in his car and that album wasnt all that. Really that album should've been still in the making to 2012 this summer instead of last summer. Wayne really needs to quit rapping, b/c he dont really rap about nothing meaningful. His songs always leaves you amped and hype but with nothing learned and that what makes a WEAK record in my opinion...

1.0 out of 5 stars Just another piece of garbage, which is not surprising. December 29, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to Lil' Lame's tracks (not songs) from several of his albums (thank you, youtube). This one is, just like all the others, nothing but garbage.
Wayne's voice is so nasal and annoying, I find it hard to believe that anyone can take it for more than a minute, let alone LIKE hearing it.
The beats and background nonsense are generic.
The only times the whole thing improves is usually when a guest comes in and actually sounds like a good rapper. Does no one notice this? Come on! This guy is a hack, nothing but hype.

If I could give it negative 10 stars, I would.

What a sad world we live in, that garbage like this is more popular than, say, Tori Amos, Tarja Turunen, or Cynic, to give but very few examples. *sigh*

3.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre Album September 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
This Is better Then Sorry For The Wait but You can Tell He Proably Wasnt on anything during this production, its seems so forced. None of the originality and creative out of this world smooth flow that made him famous. I like a couple songs but there isnt one song that i absolutely love. But I ABSOLUTELY HATE How To Love. Theres Also Way To many Features.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lives up to The Carter 1, 2, & 3 September 2, 2011
Format:Audio CD
Yup, you guessed it. It sucks! More mediocrity from pop rapping sensation Lil Wayne. Auto-tuned filth, and far too many guest appearances from other rappers. Well some of them are rappers, some are pop rap abominations, such as Drake and T- Pain. This is merely proof that Lil Wayne can't carry an album on his own because well, he sucks. Just listen to the guy talk during interviews, or better yet, go watch a bit of some of his ustream shows that are floating around online. The guy is practically brain-dead, and it really shows in his "music". This is rap for posers and kids. I've literally seen little elementary and 6th grade kids jam to this nonsense thinking they're badass. Ugh. Stay far away from this abomination. Hip Hop and Rap is dying, and Lil Wayne is a major contributor. If you must listen to this, all I ask is that you admit it's crap. Listen away, but do not proclaim that Lil Wayne is the greatest rapper alive, because he isn't.
