Instead, I have to write about more black stuff...from the Half Jewish perspective)
Lil' Wayne's "Tha Carter III is the best album of 2008.
Okay, calm down for a second. Just calm down. I hate him too. In fact, I bet I hate him more than you do. I hate when he does guest spots on other people's songs because he RUINS them every single time. He sucks. He's annoying. His voice is irritating. He doesn't even really rap. He just talks and laughs kinda. But unfortunately, his album is the best album of the year...by far.
That's how sad music is right now. Lil' Wayne, a guy I hate, has the best album. And I don't even like the two big "hits" - "Lollipop" and "A Milli" from the album. I'm not even counting those as quality songs. But you subtract those two and you have great stuff behind it...
There's "Mr. Carter" with Jay Z, "Comfortable" with Babyface, and "Got Money" with T-Pain. If you say you don't like "Got Money", you're lying...or you haven't been up in the club recently. Cause if you were, your ass would be on the dance floor raising the roof and singing "this way! that way!"
Most albums don't have a song as good as "Got Money" on them, not to mention songs as solid as those other two. But it doesn't stop there. I haven't even mentioned my two favorites: "Tie My Hands" with Robin Thicke and "Mrs. Officer" with Bobby Valentino. That's just too many good songs to deny. True, none of this shit would be any good without the guests on them, but that's just smart of Lil' Wayne to know that he sucks. He needed them, he used them, and it worked. So let's just hope next year is better so we don't have to hear more from this idiot.
True, an argument could be made for Q-Tip. "Renaissance" is a nice album...but it doesn't have hits. You can listen to that thing while you're working, or throw it on and clean up your place. You won't have to skip over any songs. It's a pleasure. A delight. But there is not a single song on there that you have to hear.
