"I woke up in a new punani!" That's right: Lil Wayne is back. "Rich As Fuck" from I Am Not a Human Being II might still blanket the airwaves, but Wayne is already taking steps to release his next Dedication tape, according to a tweet from DJ Drama. He might no longer be in peak form, and the vagina-centricity of his recent output may seem a little one-note. Overall enthusiasm for new Wayne releases—never mind for rappers abusing industry freestyles rather than paying for new production—has waned of late. But he's still undeniably one of hip-hop's most important superstars, one of its few true crossover stars, and—even in 2013—is still releasing hits. You can pretend you don't care, but there will be at least four or five lines all your friends know by the end of the summer. —David Drake
