It could happen

Andre was on The Carter 4
a 3rd eminem & wayne song wouldn't surprise anyone
Kendrick said he & wayne recorded a new song for lil wayne

That's the reason his legitimacy is questionable though. I don't think anyone would say Wayne is the most popular rapper in the game right now (or for the past couple years) but somehow he ends up with the highest first week sales.

He was arguably hotter than Eminem in the late 2000s though. Even here in Europe everybody was listening to him and it wasn't just the radio. You could see people playing his music in the car EVERY single day, this something I hadn't seen since Eminem in 1999/2000.

I still see a lot of people wearing lil wayne/YMCMB clothes... I have never seen in my entire life someone wearing Em, 50 or jay's stuff. If you come to Brussels, I promise you you'll see some love for Lil Wayne :coffee:

Also, Lil Wayne can hold down a real tour. He doesn't have to go to festivals. He's not pretending to be bigger than what hes is.

That's what happens when you flood the radio, hop on every possible feature in existence in those years and have lyrics on an intellectual level to that of a sloth with half a brain and dementia.

Lmao. The thing is, I know a lot of people that will listen to Wayne's new song or feature, but I've never met a single person that owns his albums.



It's funny I know more Wayne than Eminem fans

Obviously, I'm a much bigger fan of the latter but it seems to me that Wayne has more street credibility, if that makes sense.

Wayne's popularity was at it's peak 2-5 years ago.

He's declined majorly in popularity, just basing on what I've observed from my peers.

Still relevant as I'll get out tho tbh

The funniest thing is, it doesn't matter how hard Wayne's albums flop--his fans don't care.

Lil Wayne can hold down a real tour. He doesn't have to go to festivals. He's not pretending to be bigger than what hes is.

He was huge during his 2008ish run, I don't think anyone would deny that. He's not at that popularity level now though. After flopping pretty hard with 3 out of the last 4 albums he's put out, it would be pretty odd if all of the sudden he went platinum first week.

Steelez wrote:It's funny I know more Wayne than Eminem fans

I do too. The point is that despite how much he's all over the radio and being played all of the time, none of his fans that I know actually buy his albums.



wayne been "flopping" with all his albums but he always does huge numbers when he drops Tha Carter. his fans know him for that album. Even I don't care for ianahb, no ceiling... but I'd run to the shop for a physical copy of C5.

Well if that's how it is then I guess that makes sense. I'm not trying to hate on Wayne I would actually like to see this be released on Tuesday. His sales fluctuations have always been weird. Even if it gets pushed back I just want the tracklist. I want to see the features.


yeah don't worry about that, he'll sell

his only platinum albums are The Carter series & The Block is hot, all the other albums went gold.

Let's see...

Nicki is selling sex but on a lower level than Anaconda.

Drake is like: "Never fucked Nicki 'cause she got a man; when that's over I'm first in line" and rumours are that Nicki just broke up with her man :o

And Wayne: I'm not sure, but is his voice and delivery usually like that? It sounded very casual like he wasn't prounouncing words properly.

Beat was interesting, very minimal. Didn't like it much.
