In the spirit of celebrating Lil-Wayne’s birthday we decided to list his top 10 tracks! Well his top 10 according to what the crew here in the Fast Lane Pit like!
LIL-Wayne is to me an unlikely character to have made such a large impact on hip-hop music, but then again so was Snoop Dogg! I say the difference between Snoop and Weezy is that you can actually make sense of what Snoop is saying. I’ve never had a Snoop song go off and leave me thinking what in the world was he saying?
Regardless of that LIL-Wayne’s tracks and vocals are catchy and you somehow end up getting a pretty good feeling from them. Of course if you want a track to get radio play and have a hope of going #1 you want Weezy on it! But below is our list hit the jump to find out what we’ve chosen!
