Artist: Lil Wayne
Release Date: 2007

Although Da Drought 3 didn't really age well because of the dated beats (not sure if you can stomach hearing Mim's "This is Why I'm Hot" beat in 2012) and expired political references, Wayne's intricate wordplay provide salvation. If nothing else, the 100-plus minutes of punchlines and an overlooked appearance of a then-relatively unknown Nicki Minaj on "Can't Stop, Won't Stop" all warrant another listen.
