Here’s a task. Go to dictionary.com and look up the word “legend.” Scroll down to the second set of definitions and read the fourth entry aloud.

“A person whose fame or notoriety makes him a source of exaggerated or romanticized tales or exploits.”

Whether openly admitted or not, Lil Wayne fits that description. He has to. His obese and equally quirky catalog stretches as far back to the late 1990’s when names like Master P and Ja Rule roamed rap’s upper class. That inventory spans several albums, countless mixtapes, legions of features and an incoherent amount of random songs which have gone on to help define how the Internet era changed Hip Hop and how we receive music forever altogether. Still, like any artist, Lil Tunechi (or Young Tunafish) is known for his hit records and widely accepted anthems like “Go DJ” and his verse on Shawty Lo’s “They Know (Remix).” But what about the tracks which go under the radar either because of others’ mainstream magnetism or a general oversaturation of his own music? That’s what the following list is for.

In effort to pay homage to world’s greatest postseason tournament, “March Madness,” the following pages will depict a “Sweet 16,” per say, of Lil Wayne tracks that are, in all probability, collecting dust on your iTunes. So without further adieu, enjoy.
