It really blows. 6'7' is the only thing that comes close to his former greatness. John is good too. It's just such mediocre pop-rap bullshit. He's done, I'm throwing in the towel for weezy. It was a good run.

Lil' Wayne will always have a special place in my heart as when I went to bed at Bonnaroo the night he played, our camp was pretty much right behind the stage he was on. I'd just seen My Morning Jacket and Primus, and, well, I was still in the mood to be transported to Planet Wayne as I drifted off to psychedelic dream land .

Since you both pointed out how much you dislike Das Racist earlier, is it clever lyrics you dislike?
You misremember, sir. I'm a Das Racist defender on this board, one of the few.
I love clever lyrics, but Carter IV doesn't have many. I've listened to every Lil Wayne mixtape (and there are, like, 40) multiple times, and I could rap battle in Lil Wayne couplets for hours. There's just nothing memorable on this album. The lyrics are all retreads. At first I thought I had just outgrown my love of Weezy, but then I went back and listened to Da Drought II and No Ceilings mixtapes, and they're both so much better.
There are two songs on Carter IV where Wayne doesn't even show up! WTF!
