Lil Wayne is a great rapper who's been in need of consistent production for years. All of his projects from the past few years have been totally schizophrenic with each song going in wildly different directions. It feels like Lil Wayne just raps over whatever beats pop up in his Pro-Tools, followed by Birdman rubbing his hands together and making a tracklist (which is how we assume Lil Wayne albums get made). Meanwhile, his labelmate Drake has been releasing cohesive, thoughtful albums all overseen by 40. So idea of Wayne actually being "produced" and creating a singular thought of an album is exciting to us. — Insanul Ahmed
