Tha Carter IV (Edited)

Tha Carter IV by Lil Wayne
Released: Aug 2011
On Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne dives into a series of game-spitting roundelays like "President Carter," "Abortion" and "It's Good" (where he takes a jab at Jay-Z). Weezy doesn't have Kanye West's artistry or Jay's fear of failure, so his performances lack depth, if not necessarily resonance. However, unlike Tha Carter III and its earnest Hurricane Katrina homage, he realizes now that he's best at talking trash, not making concept albums. His one sensitive moment comes when he tries to teach a teenage fan "How to Love," but it sounds paternalistic, if well-intended.
