The Carter III

Well, this album has taken up soo much of my world (pop culture, hip hop, friends circles, Facebook, etc) that its impossible to ignore its relevance. This album will stay in the canons of hip hop as a vehicle for Lil' Wayne's ascension to the hip hop pantheon (he gets in but does he get the VIP treatment as Rakim, KRS, or Biggie... I don't think so). Its there cause it has number 1 hits all over it. And because there really isn't anything better in mainstream hip hop. So I raise my cup to you Lil Wayne!! Congratulations...

A wonderful assessment of this album can be found here... beautifully written.
