Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne
No Ceilings
(Web Release)

A lot of people hate Lil Wayne. A lot of people love Lil Wayne. Is he rap marmite? Possibly, but the fact of the matter is, Weezy is a bonafide star and arguably the biggest rapper in the world right now.

What makes the Cash Money rapper such a hot commodity is that there is no-one on the planet that sounds like him. Sure, he can sound disinterested and croaky, but that’s why he’s so great. Sure, some of of his lyrics make about as much sense as a chocolate teapot, but that’s why he’s so great. Not only that, but the man is prolific.

After clocking up sales of a million albums in a week if reports are to be believed, he could easy sit and milk Tha Carter III for all it was worth, but instead he continues recording and the No Ceilings mixtape which was released for free across the web is proof that his levels don’t dip outside of studio albums.

The track you can hear on the player is Wayne rapping over Jay-Z’s D.O.A. and doing a great job of living up to his namesake’s high level.
