<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/02/10-rappers-i-once-swore-by"> As an admitted <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/cory-gunz">Cory Gunz</a> fan that's followed his career for nearly 10 years, I was greatly interested by his new reality show on MTV, Son Of A Gun.

On Lil Wayne, Tha Carter IV And Faux Libraries

By | 54 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2011/03/lil-wayne-feat-cory-gunz-6-foot-7-foot-video"> 2011 has already been a trying year for Hip-Hop, with controversy piled over top outrage surmounted by confusion, only to all overshadow the handful yet memorable pieces of music we laid claim to. Goodbye to the days where the musician created a celebrity. Hello to the fully visualized dawn where the more outrageous, bizarre or inconspicuously wack you are the better your chances are to skip a few steps and find yourself in a graduating class typically reserved for the talented. It's a clear cut sign of the times when even the truly talented, like our subject at hand Lil Wayne, allows himself to work with the machine opposed to fighting against it. He's undoubtedly proven himself the star; supreme victor of capturing the spotlight where most seasoned acts looked visibly unsure what to do in the Internet age. Yet and still for all his triumph through the power of overloading material and championing nonsensical babble, there remains a massive void in his torchbearing touch. Naturally, my hasty critical analysis is stemming just from glaring at Wayne's approved cover for Tha Carter IV. Yep, he pulled this wallet-sized gimmick <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/lil-wayne-the-carter-iii-cover.jpg">last time out</a> but it's bigger than just a couple chuckles at the silliness of it all.

Nicki Minaj Feat. Lil Wayne – “Roman’s Revenge 2.0″

By | 14 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=162598"> What's up with rappers not being content with just a regular ol' remix anymore? Was there a memo sent out saying it was cool to use gimmicky annexes like "G-Mix" and "2.0?" Either way, <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/lil-wayne">Weezy's</a> presumably been itching to get on "Roman's Revenge" since first hearing the scathing song while he was behind bars so now we have this redux version featuring <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/nicki-minaj">Ms. Minaj's</a> boss man.
