Carter III

Postby BaseballFann0008 » Wed Jun 11, 2008 4:53 pm

I know most of the people here dont listen to rap, but I remember there was a Nas thread awhile back. I just got it , and havent listened to it yet, but I am wondering what everyone else thinks of it?

Most of Weezy's mixtape and remix stuff is off the charts. His album stuff...not so much. That lollipop song :-t

I got Tha Carter III yesterday, but haven't put it on my ipod yet and thus haven't listened to more than one or two songs. I like most of Wayne's stuff, but Ken is right his mixtape's are usually the best.

yeah thats sorta how i feel as well. the carter 2 had like 6 good tracks on it and the rest was bad in my opinion. ive been a life long hip-hop fan, but there just hasnt been anything thats gotten me excited in awhile. i havent gotten the carter 3 yet, but i guess i will soon.

I listened to it...Some good songs and some bad. Still Lil Wayne's Dedication 2 mixtape is the best IMO

Lil Wayne free styling is best. his choosen lyrics are kinda funny.

I mean listening to the guy cracks me up, but I like him and C3 is pretty good IMO.

I'm not big on mixtapes in general unless I can find ones with little to no DJ so I can't comment on Wayne's mixtapes other than Dedication and The Suffix, both of which were/are enjoyable. I got C3 last week and its just okay, which is a bit of a disappointment because of how hyped it became. I wasn't exactly on the edge of my seat anticipating this to drop but I was looking for something good being that the state of hip-hop is dreadful right now. Sadly it's probably the worst of the Carter trilogy but maybe I've got to give it more time to grow on me. His lyrics and flow on I'm Me are sick. Kanye and Babyface set Comfortable on fire, Robin Thicke does a good job on Tie My Hands, and Mrs. Officer is pretty catchy, enjoyable so. Jay-Z's appearance on Mr. Carter isn't as great as I hoped but its still a fine track. Nothing is really BAD, besides Lollipop. Milli's beat is just too repetitive/trash for me to enjoy, the same can be said for La La.

Favorites: I'm Me, Mrs. Officer, Comfortable, Tie My Hands, Mr. Carter

Trash/Skips: Lollipop, Milli

I like a handful of songs, namely Let the Beat Build, Dr.Carter, Mr.Carter, and A Milli. Instead of listening to The Carter III, I took my favorites of that and combined them on a burnt cd with all of my other faves from everything he's released since The Carter II. It made for a pretty sweet cd. Georgia Bush, imo, contains the best lyrics he's ever recorded.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.
