First of all, im a die hard Metalhead.
I heard of Lil' Wayne like a year or two ago.. Sounded like another mentally challenged rapper spitting random words around in a "cool" manner while flashing his underwear and making teenage girls cream their panties while male music fans call him an idiot on the internet.
talking about having his lollipop licked and shit, i just put him in the "uninteresting musician" slot and never looked back. ( since i tend to dislike that shit, rather than actively HATE it)
So yesterday, for some reason i looked him up on Wikipedia, and i read that he made a rock album "Rebirth" back in March .. so i listened to the album's singles, and i immediately FELL INLOVE with this fucked up tune called "Prom Queen"
Not only is the dark rap sound dipped in good old hard rock riffs (and very enthusiastic and dominant drums) with a touch of auto-tune really extraordinary and captivating and addicting, but the lyrics are very accessable and moving (something i personally KINDA can relate to).
And to top it all the song's music video is brilliantly directed and goes too well with the words.
ive watched this music video like twelve times now.. ive never done that before.
Edit: before you listen to this you need to fricking relax and take a rest from all the over-analyzing and shit.. enjoy this brief piece of music for fucks sake and stop overthinking MUSIC, its not literature :)
P.S. even if you dont like the song, the video is worth it.. good story going on.
I'm gonna spend the next few days exploring Lil' Wayne. gonna be repulsed and irritated by his earlier work im sure (that so called 'rap'), but this mindfucking raprock album gave him another chance in my book.
For robotic tools who activate "rip on shitty music blog' too quickly: I pretty much dislike Lil Wayne too. not a Weezy fan speaking here..
