As Lil Wayne preps for a yearlong prison stay on weapons charges, he's busy getting things in order with his hip-hop empire.
Next week, his long-delayed "rock album," Rebirth, will finally be released. And last month, he released the We Are Young Money compilation featuring cuts by a bunch of mostly unknown rappers on his Young Money label.
But these are the clowns he's leaving his dynasty with while he's gone?
Of the Top 10 worst rappers working today, six of them are collecting a paycheck from Young Money.
I may be exaggerating ... but just a little. After hearing the album, you can pick and choose which half-dozen are the worst. They're all awful (except Drake; I'm not sure what he's doing here. I like his singles).
Then again, maybe you like songs that go, "Open up her legs then filet mignon that pussy/I’ma get in and on that pussy/If she let me in I’ma own that pussy."
Or songs by a guy named Gudda Gudda.
Or songs by a crew that has no flow and rhymes "can't continue" with "gang member."
In that case, you'll probably like Young Money. I just hope Weezy likes what's left off his empire when he gets out of prison.—Michael Gallucci
