DAY 7 of "7 Days of Hip-Hop: Top 7 Albums" (started by @raddad88 & @burning_hammer91 #RadHammer)
Album: "Tha Block is Hot" the 1st album by Lil Wayne @liltunechi
This was a conscious decision based on majority audience 😋, and the fact this album is older than most of my followers (this album turns 19 years old this year), but a lot of them probably listen to Lil Wayne...
I feel like I've listened to Lil Wayne as long as he's been rapping. I had the Hot Boys "Get It How U Live" on cassette with a 14 year old Wayne on it. He's 17 for this album I believe... 17 years old my dudes. Him, and Mannie Fresh on the beats, were wayyyy ahead of their time. Mannie gets very creative in some of the sound/instrument choices, and drum patterns. I'd high key love an instrumental version of this album. In more recent years, Weezy flourished in the mixtape game with a change in delivery style from his early career, with more emphasis on word play and metaphors. In the beginning, there's more of a focus on rhyming multiple syllables, and 'riding the beat', which I'm actually a fan of more. I like when the flow feels like part of the song, not just lyrics on a beat. Pay attention, it's impressive because sometimes he'll rhyme the syllables of an entire bar for like 4 bars. And you might notice a couple syllables, but listen earlier in the line, that probably rhymes too 😂😂😎👌. I don't expect many to agree with my decision here, but meh. I shared 4 song clips, 1 as a video. ⠀
