I thought Lil Wayne was prolific?

Remember when there was gonna be a new Lil Wayne album this summer? What ever happened to that?

I saw a report somewhere the other day that Wayne decided to push back the Rebirth to focus on his label, Young Money, but I’m assuming he’s just been too high to focus on finishing the album. The last report I’d read re: Lil Wayne before that was about how he was being sued for failing to show up to a concert, because he was too high. They showed up to his hotel room to collect him and deliver him to the venue, but he was too fucked the fuck up to even wake up. Damn. I’m not gonna lie – I’ve been that fucked, too. But it’s not like I had anywhere to be. They were just trying to wake me up to see if I wanted to do any more partying, which obviously I didn’t want to.

I doubt Lil Wayne actually has to do anything as the president of Young Money, and also the president of Cash Money, if he’s still the president of Cash Money. I know they’ve got that Drake album coming out, and it’s imperative that it do well, but I’m assuming there’s a room of white people somewhere in charge of that. If I was Drake, I’d probably insist on it, even if I didn’t necessarily let on to Lil Wayne that I did. Then there’s Nicki Minaj. Hopefully he’s just keeping her around for head purposes. Probably no female rap album would sell very well these days, even if it was good (I know…), and I’m assuming she’s not very good, even though I’ve never heard any of her stuff. She’s definitely not very good-looking.

I was looking at this site’s news section, because I’m leaving town in the morning and I don’t have time to come up with anything original or worth reading, and it occurred to me: if I’m one of these rappers, I’m trying to get my shit out there ASAP. Album sales are fucked the fuck up, and they’re probably not gonna get any better. So far, that new Eminem album has only sold 1.2 million. It probably would have sold twice as much, a few years ago. Did you know there wasn’t even a new rap album released last week? Or rather, there wasn’t a new rap album that ranked anywhere in the top 200 of Billboard. I’m sure some bum put out a rap album last week – it just didn’t sell 200 copies, or whatever it takes to make the chart these days.

The pressure has to be on Lil Wayne to come up with a followup to Tha Carter III. Oh, what it must be like to be a fly on the wall in the Universal building these days. They must be sweating bullets. Some TI is gonna fuck around and have to let his fourth home go into foreclosure behind this shit. If they thought they could get away with it, they’d probably just collect some of that garbage from his shedload of mixtapes, put it on a disc and call that the Rebirth. It’s not like his last album sounded like he put a significant amount of time and thought into it, and you see how well that sold. Maybe they should just send him off on a month-long bender somewhere and go for it.

They probably would try some shit like that, except you never can tell with these Lil Wayne albums. As much as I rag on Lil Wayne, I was way wrong about Tha Carter III. As that album’s release date approached, I thought he was approaching some sort of personal and artistic nadir, and I’m pretty sure he was. It sold like pancakes anyway. Then there was that EP the label put out at the end of ’07, when it became obvious that he wasn’t gonna have an album out for Christmas, even though he’d been on the covers of the last six issues of XXL in a row. I would have thought that would have been a good idea, but it only sold like 8 copies. If it came out this week, it wouldn’t even have cracked the top 200.

So yeah, I’ve been wrong about these things before. Maybe Lil Wayne is way more of a genius than I think, and he’s just taking the time to make sure the Rebirth turns out as well as Tha Carter III. Maybe there is such a thing as rapper racist, and I’m it. Even if there isn’t, it hasn’t been such a bad thing not being inundated with Lil Wayne this summer. I probably shouldn’t even be discussing why it’s taking him so long to release another album. That’s just gonna cause him to be that much more prolific, to spite. If anything, I should probably travel to wherever he is and give him some more drugs.

    Then he goes on & knocked up both Lauren London & Nivea @ the same time…now tell me if that’s not being prolific..wizzy busy on the sheets.

    Then there’s Nicki Minaj. Hopefully he’s just keeping her around for head purposes. That’s hilarious,Bol.

  • mazemayhim

    I don’t believe he made enough songs to make the rock hybrid “Rebirth” album. He prolly only did “Prom Queen” and got on some other hype. If he really did get Lauren London AND Nivea preggers then I’ll give him a break for album blunder. Honestly, as long as he doesn’t break the OATH he should be fine whether or not he drops that “Rebirth” album.

    • valdez

      co-sign. but be careful, u are goin over most of this site’s readers’ heads with that OATH talk. but i know exactly what u are refering to.

      and u are absolutely correct. as long as he continues following orders and leading the masses straight to hell, he’ll be just fine as far as all the things that matter to him and the other celebs. i.e. money, fame, power and influence.

      little do these celebs know or realize that they are just being used. they are simply pawns. the elite don’t run out of money. it is nothing to them. at this point, it is the control that they love. they really do love satan also. shit is quite sad, to say the least.

      what’s even worse tho, is that the “fans” and listeners are totally oblivious (in most cases) to what is really is that they are following and listening to. they are praising these “stars” who are leading them straight to hell. so sad.

    By the way, Bol, I just emailed you to tell you that your girl Gianna Michaels is on Stern right now.

  • Enlightened

    On some real shit, I hope they honestly put that Hot Boys album together like they say…

    Juvenile said they cut his check already, so it should happen.

    Some people try to discount what The Hot Boys were. I call that selective memory. For a period of time, they were the shit.

    Not saying they are in the Top 5 groups of all time, but they are to this Jeezy/Boosie/Gucci/Souljah Boy era what N.W.A. was to the Snoop/Pac/Nas/Biggie era.

    And people also forgot how much of a beast Juvenile can be when he’s on tight beats.

    • Enlightened

      And also, in this era, where everybody is obsessed with age… (“these old niggas need to retire and let us get our money”)…

      Juvenile is the oldest and he’s still only about 31. How many people can come back after all that time, be vets in the game, and still not be (hip-hop) “old”

    Wayne’s musical career has taken a backseat to Drake, drugs & promiscuity.

    Hell, even Baby (I hate calling a grown ass man Baby) is trying to step his rap game up. I really don’t see him dropping off another mil+ records in the lap of level-headed people again. Perhaps he agrees, which is why he’s all Rock ‘n’ Roll’d out now. Dude’s like a black Tommy Lee.

    $20 bet that he knocks up Nicki Minaj by December.

      What up Tony Grand$ whats good?

      I raise you 10 more dollars AND I bet she’ll go the Kelis Hoo-er route and get him for his paper…by November. I’m sorry but homegirl is a Ms. Potato Head. She take that make up off and you go into a seizure looking at it….ugh…

      COMMISSION!!!

    Hell yeah man show some class and get drunk or high on your off days. These young kids arent raised right anymore.

  • Apollo Moses

    I think he realized he’ll actually have to write more songs for a rocknrolla album.tough. Also he’s taken a step back in popularity with the rise of Drake, he’ll need to stay close and buy some more rhymes to stay on par with kid…nobody checkin for Baby unless its like father like son 2, which is b/c he say he write all stunnas bars in stunt hard…kid is not prolific just struck while the iron was hot.

      “…he’ll need to stay close and buy some more rhymes…”

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

  • http://www.drizzydrake.org Max

    I remember Drake saying on Alexa show that the release of his albums is soley upon him, he really doesn’t have to wait for anybody, and I quote him (not exactly), “I get to decide the release date of when my album drops”. That’s why he signed the way he signed.

  • El Tico Loco

    I haven’t heard Lil’ Wayne’s name here for a while, what did he do? No he’s not prolific and obviously ain’t prophylactic either.

  • $ykotic

    HA! Good ish Bol.

    Surprised no one dropped that Universal has sent out statements saying they DO NOT want to release Rebirth anytime soon.

    Sounds like the T.I.’s are saying “GTFOH with this. You’re not f*cking up OUR music…”

    Besides Minaj is too busy looking @ Foxy Brown for Wayne.

  • Grimey G

    Say what you want about Wayne but every red blooded male has to be jealous if that Lauren London thing is true. She is absolutely gorgeous. Her face might be the prettiest face i have ever seen. I’m a black guy who doesn’t even like black girls that much but I’d put her up against just about any white girl this side of megan fox.

    • latino heat

      “i’m a black guy who dosen’t even like black girls that much” is that really you Bol?

  • BIGNAT

    “Some TI is gonna fuck around and have to let his fourth home go into foreclosure behind this shit.”
    that is real funny because it might be true. you said send wanye out on a bender no please don’t his ass is hard to understand now. i don’t want no more of that i am a martain shit. or autotune or crappy crap in general get back to the carter material. get manny fresh have him whip up 16 songs lets make this shit happen.

    how are u gonna comment on rappers like niki manaj who u haven’t even heard. Your whole post is ignorant son. Lil wayne’s lawsuit got dropped since the real reason he didnt perform is because of a security problem. As much as lil wayne has been partying (which he deserves to) he’s redone the rebirth album a couple times (seein as it’s his first take and he’s gettin better with attempts) not only that but he’s been workin with young money to get their shit going. He also pumped out a CD quality mixtape no ceilings.

    GET FCKIN REAL KID.

    U sound like a straight hater weezy is a hard working muhfucka, what have u done??? Write a blog??? LOOOL
