The eskimos don't actually have a thousand words for snow, but Lil Wayne has at least that many ways to tell you how rich he is, in money and women. But what truly separates him from any number of rappers is his ability to inject those tropes with emotion.
"Leather So Soft" sounds somber from the jump, but it's not until the third verse that Wayne turns a song about convertibles and mistletoe dick kisses into something a little more personal: "I gotta die with money 'cause I wasn't born wit it/It was 9/27/82, baby due/Charity Hospital aka the city zoo."
