Tha Block Is Hot
by Lil Wayne
Released: Nov 1999
Label: Cash Money Records/Universal Records
Lil Wayne's first solo offering, this album follows the successful Cash Money formula to a T. Crisp, stuttering beats from Mannie Fresh, ample appearances from the Hot Boys and Big Tymers, and no-nonsense rhymes about life as iced-out, untamed guerillas in the streets of chopper city.
