5. LIL WAYNE- THA CARTER IV (AUGUST 29TH)
Ah, Mr. Weezy F. Baby has been making us wait on Tha Carter IV for what seems like forever and a day. After being pushed back multiple times, August 29th is now the time when we can expect to get our hands on what is arguably the most highly anticipated album in hip hop and rap for 2011.
With his recent single How To Love, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lil Wayne[/lastfm] seems to be taking a different direction creatively. When speaking on the single in an interview, Weezy said:
When I listen to it I get goose bumps. And I feel like the song is gonna take me somewhere that I’ve never been musically.
Describing his quest to be recognized as “more than a rapper” Wayne says:
When they make a billboard and put whoever they gonna put up there to define the word ‘music,’ I wanna be there.
