He took our favorite songs and made them his.
What was the first Wayne freestyle you heard? The first time I heard Wayne rap over someone’s beat was his freestyle to Jay Z’s Show Me What You Got. Dedication 1 and 2 followed and after that I was addicted. In 2006, I never met someone that was not a Lil Wayne fan. He demolished the beats to our favorite songs and his features were nonstop. It’s 2017 and fans complain about how Wayne fell off, and contrary to those feelings, he deserves our respect. From 1991 until the present, he continues to be relevant. He started out as a child star and became the best rapper alive. Not many artists can stay relevant for over two decades. From albums to mixtapes, Lil Wayne stayed active underground and mainstream. Lil Wayne debates on whether he is the best always make me laugh because the fact that we keep having this argument shows his credibility. His freestyles are witty, personified, visual, and international. Out of all the freestyles he killed, I frustratingly picked my top 10 and my favorite bars with them.
