39. Lil Wayne "Get Off The Corner" (2000)
Producer: Mannie Fresh
Album: Lights Out
Label: Cash Money
Popular consensus will tell you that Wayne didn't hit his stride as a rapper until Tha Carter series. That it was a miraculous and sudden recovery from relative wackness. But popular consensus is wrong. "Get Off The Corner," the opening track from his sophomore outing was a conscious act of lyrical showboating and a strong outing from an emcee gradually coming into his own.
