67. Lil Wayne "Dr. Carter" (2008)
Producer: Swizz Beatz
Album: Tha Carter III
Label: Cash Money, Universal Motown
For "Dr. Carter" Wayne put on his scrubs to perform a demonstration surgery on the rap game. He motivates aspiring emcees with inspiring words and Vicodin. He also kicks like a sensei and goes hard like geese erections. As an instructional guide, it's rambling and confusing at best-but as a learn-by-example display of rap madness, it's fascinating. It helps that Swizz Beats abandons his clunk and Casio chaos in favor of a perfectly simple David Axelrod loop in a transparent but fun attempt at true-school purism.
