    Although his first studio album in three years has been long-awaited and repeatedly delayed, Lil Wayne has been anything but absent. Since THA CARTER II, Weezy has left an impressive mass of recordings--from mixtapes (authorized and otherwise) to guest appearances--in his wake as he blusters through the rap industry. In the third installment of the THA CARTER series, Wayne shows he's earned the right to ego-trip as he lets his off-kilter flow, freak-out lyrics, and vocal acrobatics run wild over 16 tracks. Scaling the heights of hubris on "Dr. Carter," he plays an MC/doctor treating a certain music genre diagnosed as lifeless and closes with a quintessential Weezy snarl: "Welcome back hip-hop/I saved your life." Wayne then shifts to alien-mode for the E.T.-inspired "Phone Home." Later on, he details his sexual conquest of a female cop on "Ms. Officer." As expected, THA CARTER III is rife with big name producers (The Alchemist, Kanye West, Wyclef Jean, David Banner, Swizz Beatz, and guest artists (Jay-Z, Babyface, Busta Rhymes, Juelz Santana, Fabolous, T-Pain) from all coasts.

  • Critic Reviews
    Rolling Stone (p.74) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "He really is the best rapper alive....As usual, Wayne's tumbling freestyle rhymes are full of imagination and surprise, but his voice itself is half the fun."
    Rolling Stone (p.88) - Ranked #3 in Rolling Stone's 50 Best Albums Of 2008 -- "Lil Wayne's greatness lies not just in what he says, but in the way he says it..."
    Spin (p.96) - "[T]he purest product of the most transformative, chaos-inducing man-made disasters of the 21st century -- New Orleans, hip-hop, and the Internet."
    Spin (p.53) - Ranked #2 in Spin's "40 Best Albums Of 2008" -- "[With] rapping, Auto-Tune crooning, groping guitar strings, and rasping for air over a digital patchwork of beats and synths..."
    Entertainment Weekly (p.66) - "There's some intricate art here: 'Dr. Carter' and 'A Milli' have bursts of spectacular rhyme..."
    The Wire (p.64) - "'Misunderstood', based around the Nina Simone track, has lines that come straight from the heart, and the vital signs are strong..."
    XXL (Magazine) (p.98) - "Wayne's supreme confidence as an MC dominates the album....His songwriting skills continue to get more thoughtful and focused..."
    Blender (Magazine) (p.80) - 4.5 stars out of 5 -- "His taste in beats and sounds is omnivorous, his crushed-charcoal rasp equally indebted to crisp East Coast complexity, Southern sing-song and his own warped imagination."
