Weeziana

“I’m probably in the sky, flying with the fishes,
Or maybe in the ocean, swimming with the pigeons,
See my world is different,
Like Dwayne Wayne,
And if you want trouble, bitch, I want the same thing…”

~Lil Wayne, “Sky Is The Limit”

Lil Wayne does live in a different world than the rest of us. No question about it after seeing the man do his thing live in Monroe, Louisiana last week. He did everything from epic versions of “Sky’s The Limit” and “I Need A Hot Girl” to playing live guitar on “Leather So Soft.” It also helped that he was in his home state and the crowd (which was about 50/50 men and women, mostly high school and college kids) gave him much love. In turn, he gave the crowd much love and gratitude, on top of an energetic ass show. In this post-Katrina America, Weezy as a New Orleans rapper with New Orleans swag and pride has risen to a different level of the game. As he says on “Gossip”: “It rains a lot in my city cuz my city’s cryin’, cuz my city’s dyin’, but I emerge from all of that I am a livin’ pion, Neer, Zion…Fear God Not Them.”

  1. weezy is the f***ing truth. his performance at the BET hiphop awards solidified him in my minds as one of if not the greatest of this period in hiphop. im sick w jealousy that you saw him live in Louisiana. =) That “gossip” song thwarts all his competiton. “Damn right, he kissed his daddy!”

  2. Weezy has a ridiculous amount of talent…as long as he continues to improve as a songwriter, he could eventually go down as one of the best to do it. You heard he’s dropping the Carter 3 Leak sessions first in December, then the real Carter 3 in February?

    peace,
    Tunji.
