Tha Carter III pushed Lil Wayne into the ranks of hip-hop's best, but the rock-themed Rebirth and the pre-prison term I Am Not a Human Being kept only the most dedicated of Weezy fans happy. Here is Tha Carter IV, and the album, just based on the strength of the lead single "6 Foot 7 Foot(1)," is closer to III in terms of quality. The Bandgladesh-produced "6 Footâ€¦" is a potent mix of a banging' beat and Tunechi's rapid-fire flow, with Cory Gunz making a memorable guest appearance. The track has been out for a while, but it still hits as hard as ever. "John(2)" featuring Rick Ross is another "club banger" with plenty of gun and money talk (Polow da Don handles the beat), and for less aggressive, more introspective cuts, check out "How To Love(3)" and "She Will feat Drake(4)," or the brilliant, Jimmy Carter-sampling "President Carter(5). All in all, Tha Carter IV is a solid, well-rounded hip-hop album worth repeated listens. This is the deluxe RED VINYL version with 3 bonus tracks.

Well, after making every excuse for not listening to the album, I steeled myself and played it.
And I must say I was pleasantly surprised. Wayne sounds as confident as ever but actually mature in some way. It was good to see he didn't immediately depend on guest appearances. Guest started appearing on tracks already releases. The beats were typically layered and booming of course. The "let the beat build bitch" was in full effect. There were only a few tracks that I really felt compelled to skip (and most of those I already heard). There were plenty of over-the-top references but also lyrics that sounded like thoughtful insights (albeit he really needs to tone down that that nasal flow and go with the deeper gravelly voice). I'm sure the hip-hop purist won't find much to like. But overall, in this digital age of superficial lyrics, "whiny" rappers and an overload of mixtapes, Carter IV comes across as a well composed effort from a maturing artist who wants to expand his repertoire (did I really say that?). Anyways, it's not a classic but defintely head-over-heels above the other Wayne wanna be's.
