“YM Banger” – Review Of Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being

By | 24 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/10/martian-chronicles-the-lil-wayne-simile-counter"> There has never been a rapper like Lil Wayne--and there probably won't be one akin to him for some time. Aside from being one of the few rappers who still sells considerable amount of units on the regular, his character traits keep his name in the news when he's not holed up in the studio. The brazen yet nonchalant approach towards recording; Dwayne Carter easily churns out 200 songs annually. The stylistic dexterity that ignites his drive is merely analogical reasoning on the 3rd grade reading level and obviously wouldn't cut it for most artists trying to find a niche in such methods. And of course, his highly public debacles (impregnating multiple women, consistent run-ins with the law, male on male lip-bonding) that would make an otherwise burgeoning rapper's career spiral down the drain, but for Weezy, the bounds of his popularity continue to ascend through aerospace. Recorded in preparation for his absence due to a state-appointed vacation stemming from an illegal weapons possession, I Am Not A Human Being is a direct extension of Wayne's last outing, Rebirth, opposed to his last widely recognized album Tha Carter III. Rock-tinged anomalies of songs---much of which has be the apple of Wayne's affection as of late---pepper the LP to distinct the recipe of his preferred cookbook. The <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/09/lil-wayne-i-am-not-a-human-being-video">centerpieced title track</a> is a thrashed onslaught of heavy metal where Wayne exercises his inner rockstar to separate himself from the rest of the pack.

Martian Chronicles: The Lil Wayne Simile Counter

By | 34 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/?p=137417"> Viva la Weezy! Lil Wayne’s kind-of-new album that was recorded half a year ago just dropped, and like most of his projects, the metaphors, similes and punch lines are aplenty. Maybe it’s because we missed <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/lil-wayne">Wayne</a>, but there seem to be an exorbitant amount of similes on <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/i-am-not-a-human-being">I Am Not A Human Being</a>.

“Unforgettable” – Review Of Drake’s Thank Me Later

By | 191 Comments

<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/drake-sells-462k-in-his-first-week"> No introduction needed for this one, as adoring fans and awaiting haters have anticipated the release of Thank Me Later since the DeGrassi graduate took music by storm a year ago. With the success of “Over” and a new leak with a new Hip-Hop A-lister every week for months, the foundation’s been laid for Drake to seize Hip-Hop’s spotlight. And seize it he does. Thank Me Later is pure platinum pop, 15 tracks of masterful songcraft with only a few hiccups. Rarely does a transition lag and or a sample sound out of place. Drake excels as a versatile performer capable of creating soothing melodies such as those on the sublime “Karaoke,” while remaining street enough to trade rhymes with rough around the edges Young Money cohorts. The album’s greatest strength is its balance—Drake never drifts too far into one style, ensuring the album maintains its universal appeal throughout. Equally as impressive are his hooks—his Auto-Tuned wailing on “Miss Me,” or “The Resistance” upgrade good tracks to great and stay in your head long after you’ve plucked out your headphones. This same quality makes him a master collaborator, allowing his superiorly talented lyrical peers to upstage him on verses without relinquishing ownership of the track. In this environment, his guests turn in virtuoso performances. Young Jeezy provides a welcome dose of thug motivation on the night-riding anthem “Unforgettable.” Weezy makes an appearance in between court dates to bless “Miss Me” with an appropriately alien flow. And <a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/tag/jay-z">Hov</a> stops by to prove he still holds the crown with his ridiculous “<a href="http://smokingsection.uproxx.com/TSS/2010/06/jay-zs-triple-entendre">triple entendre</a>” spot on “Light Up.
