The Carter Sores

Intro- Lil Wayne reminds us what he?s about in the introduction of the Carter IV, bringing his unique charisma and famous punnery out on a head-bobbing beat. 7
Blunt Blowin- While the lyrical value is mediocre by his standards, the song still deserves a playlist spot. 6
Megaman- Lil Wayne attacks an up-tempo beat with punch lines and simple flow. Killer line: ?Yeah you know that money talk, I am the ventriloquist? 7
6 Foot 7 Foot (featuring Cory Gunz)- The first single from The Carter IV showcases Lil Wayne true lyrical value as he drops puns which are so catchy that the lack of chorus is more than made up for. 9
Nightmares of the Bottom- The first slow tempo offering of record sees Lil Wayne continue his mastery of language manipulation while slowing down the pace superbly. 8
She Will (featuring Drake)- Weezy teams up with fellow Young Money artist Drake to create a true hip hop anthem. The track is memorable for its solid verses and very catchy chorus. 9
How to Hate (featuring T-Pain)- How to Hate offers a brilliant chorus by singer T-Pain and sincere verses from Weezy. 8
Interlude- Brilliant additions from artists Tech n9ne & Andre 3000. 8
John (featuring Rick Ross)- While Lil Wayne managed to keep the gangster-rap feel of the song on a hard beat. The chorus is also not very impressive however Weezy?s verses make the song worth the listen. 7
Abortion- Great concept for the song, ?We in the belly of beast and she?s thinking ?bout abortion?, however the verses are mediocre at best and the chorus doesn?t do the song much justice either. 6
So Special (featuring John Legend)- With John Legend hitting all of the right notes with the chorus, Lil Wayne offers a rougher approach to the song creating a nice contrast in the song. 8
How to Love- Perhaps the biggest surprise of the album, How to Love offers brilliantly sung soulful lyrics over a superb guitar melody. Definitely a classic Lil Wayne track. 8
President Carter- Lil Wayne raps with confidence over a solid beat, still not his best though. 7
It?s Good- The most controversial track on the album is powered by an emotional Jadakiss, an angered Drake and an unimpressed Lil Wayne. Very Good song. 8
Outro- Brilliant verses from Nas, Busta Rhymes, Bun B and Shyne. 8
Overall- 8/10
