Lil Wayne - I Am Music

Regular price $ 60.99


Translucent Ruby Red Vinyl

Originally a Record Store Day Black Friday 2023 Release, now available.

I Am Music cherrypicks platinum hits and other much-loved tracks from across Lil Wayne's prestigious career, focusing at times on the wave of success the New Orleans rapper was riding as the 2000s bled into the 2010s. Hearing one mega-hit after another from this era -- the ubiquitous "A Milli," one of Drake's earlier guest verses on the triumphant "Right Above It," the silly pop fun of group track "BedRock"-- it's easy to see the impact Weezy had on popular rap at his peak. Wayne not only holds his own on tracks with Eminem and Jay-Z, but sounds so fresh and strange that he connects on a deeper level in these moments. Though I Am Music tends to hover around the golden phase Wayne experienced after 2008's The Carter III and before the glow of fame started to diminish around 2013 or so, but also goes as far back as 2004 Mannie Fresh-produced party track "Go D.J." and includes a few selections from 2018's Tha Carter V such as the standout storytelling bars of Kendrick Lamar-assisted "Mona Lisa." The compilation kicks off with "Kant Nobody," a 2023 single built on a DMX sample. The nonstop brilliance of I Am Music furthers the case for Lil Wayne being the greatest rapper alive, or at the very least, presents ample evidence of the days when he was.
