Product Description

Tha Carter III is the sixth studio album by rapper Lil Wayne and it is the final album in Tha Carter trilogy. Originally known as the youngest Hot Boy, Lil' Wayne has orchestrated a steady stream of hits. The New Orleans rapper began his long career with Cash Money as part of the Hot Boys, a popular late-'90s supergroup consisting of Juvenile, Turk, and B.G.

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

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.

With the first and second of Tha Carter ever been hit albums, Lil Wayne gotta had made a real double hit album of all, The Carter III. I like half the songs he made and they're really good, even the most songs I listened to were Lollipop ft. Static Major, Mrs. Officer ft. Bobby V & Kidd Kidd, and of course Comfortable ft. Babyface.

Wayne really changed alot of points in his style going into this album and hereafter. But i think for the most part, it was a turn for the best. Tha Carter 3 is an awesome album! Id you haven't heard, you're about 7 years behind my friend.

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.

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.

There comes a time where we all have to be judgmental and not follow a crowd, or not praise or slander something or someone because it's cool to do. For those few people who've been following my reviews, I'm sure I have an idea what you're thinking. You're probably thinking, "What Chandler?! You gave Wayne 8 out of 10 stars? You must be on that down south type ****." Or could it be "What? 8 out of 10 stars? No way Chandler! I stuck by your reviews for so long, and this is how you repay me. You gave Masta Ace, and Immortal Technique 8 stars. Is Lil' Wayne just as good as them?" Whatever reason you're thinking why I didn't give Wayne a low score, because he's overrated and proclaims himself as "The Best Rapper Alive", I have a few words for you: Get a life! Just like EJ Rupert said in his review, is it cool to listen to underground and mainstream artists, without slamming one or the other (this goes for half of you people who are on those Amazon threads as well).

Well, as for Lil' Wayne himself, he hits what he proclaims as a "3 Peat" with his third follow up in "Tha Carter" trilogy. I admit, he has stepped is game up since back in '04 when he came out with Tha Carter 1, which was mediocre (admit it, you only liked it because it was the cool thing to do). But in late '05/early '06 he came much harder on Tha Carter II. So can Wayne live up to the hype that he has been swimming in for the past year. When you hear how he rips on "Mr. Carter" featuring Jay-Z, the answer is apparently "yes". No matter how you match him up with the beats, he'll put them to good use.
