Mixtape Weezy: XXL’s Favorite Lil Wayne Features

32. Lil Wayne

In anticipation of the release of Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being II, manager Cortez Bryant claimed, “It’s mixtape Weezy – straight street bangers you’re going to hear in the club… Wayne really took it back to his roots.” Needless to say, Tez got fans of the old Weezy super excited about a return to form. Whether he was telling the truth is debatable (see the XXL review of the record here), but we took the PR statement as an excuse to revisit Mixtape Weezy’s catalogue.

You might remember a time in the mid to late-2000s, when Wayne popped up on everybody’s single – delivering his slick rhymes to the world through collaborations with everyone from Mario to Drake to Destiny’s Child. What’s crazy about the run is that he managed to not spread himself too thin, and deliver every guest verse (or hook) with authority and originality.

We’re not saying that these are the best Wayne features, these are just 20 of our favorites, so click through and immerse yourself in the glory that is Mixtape Weezy. If you have a favorite that isn’t mentioned here, let us know what it is and why you love it in the comments section. – Compiled by Dan Buyanovsky and Abrea Armstrong, with additional reporting by Ralph Bristout and Eric Diep.
