Slava P had a pocket full of ass whoopings, but unfortunately, there was a hole in it.

The only thing people can agree upon when talking about Lil Wayne is that he’s incredibly polarizing. This partially lies in the fact that he’s an easy target for criticism with his absurd fashion choices, unexplainable passion for skateboarding, and his persistent release of music. His latest offering, I Am Not A Human Being 2, deals more with Dwayne’s love for pussy and prescription drugs than it does with the painful and violent tales of growing up in hard-knock Hollygrove that caused us to become transfixed with him during his Carter I through Carter 3 run.

Lil Wayne’s exhausting run in 2007 saw him churn out one ingenious punchline after another, laying down a foundation of content that would go on to be pilfered and exhumed by every popular rapper in the last few years from Chief Keef to 2 Chainz. At the same time, Wayne’s sexperimentation with bad sing-rapping on songs like “Prostitute Flange” and “Pussy, Money, Weed” served as a blueprint for new age goon-crooners like Future and French to refine and (arguably) improve upon it. When rumors rang out last week about Lil Wayne potentially dying, both fanboys and detractors alike thought about a world without Wayne and felt varying degrees of sadness. However off Weezy’s thought process has become with his new-found lifestyle, the thought of losing someone as influential as him marks the end of an era. He may not be the new Tupac, but he was the first rapper of his generation to take us into space, the first to popularize hook-free club-bangers and he is definitely the last, Lil Wayne.
