So I’ve got this big essay on Lil Wayne up at Idolator right now dealing with the nature of hype, one-sided criticism, and the first two singles from The Carter III. It’s something I’ve been thinking about writing for a while but after watching the critical hosannas pour in for “Lollipop” and “A Millie,” I had to say something. I mean “Lollipop” is 3rd rate 50 Cent, the sort of derivative hot mess that would be universally mocked were it not released by Wayne. Meanwhile “A Millie,” is just another mediocre mixtape track with a few hot moments and some really bad ones. At any rate, it goes on for two minutes too long. Yes, there are jokes about Whoopi Goldberg, the “Loungin” video and Peanut Butter Wolf. All in a days work.
