Part of what I want to do here is to put people on stuff that I feel was overlooked at the time. If you’re young like me you know about Lil Wayne, but many people’s memory is confined to his big records and neglect deep cuts of which he has many. A personal favorite of mine is the 2008 loosie from the Carter III sessions entitled “Thats My Nigga”. Looking at this record and others like “Eat You Alive” you can see how Wayne’s use of auto-tune carried on to influence current heavy hitters like Young Thug who has been quoted as saying he only listened to Wayne and Gucci when coming up. The track is undeniable in my opinion, check it out below.
