Lil Wayne The Carter IV Album Review


Well before getting started I’ve listened to Wayne since the Hot Boys dropped Get It How U Live album along with B.G, Juvenile and Turk. So I’ve followed him a long time so I’m not going to bore you anymore and get straight to the review. The first Carter album made me become more of a Wayne fan. The Carter 2 felt like a continuation of the first one as it was a dope album also. The Carter 3 wasn’t as nice as the first two, but it still was a good album though.


1. Intro- He just spitting a few bars, nice intro where he just spitting alot of metaphors. 4/5

2. Blunt Blowin- Well I’ll be honest with you the beat was alright but just not really feeling the song and really don’t like the hook either.2/5

3. Megaman- I actually like this track, I like the beat and Wayne went in on this track. 3.5/5

4. 6 Foot 7 (w/Cory Gunz)- I didn’t like the track when it came out and I don’t like it now. 2/5

5. Nightmares Of the Bottom- A laid back track and I really love this track. The beat is nice also. 4/5

6. She Will (w/Drake)- Another track that I’m just not feeling and usually these 2 together are money but not this time. 2.5/5

7. How to Hate (w/T-Pain)- I don’t like this track either, now the first track they done I Can’t Believe It was nice but not this one. 2/5

8. Interlude (Feat. Tech N9ne and Andre 3000)- Well this is not a usually interlude but it’s Tech N9ne and Andre 3 Stacks just straight spitting and they killed it, no Wayne. One of the best tracks on the album. 5/5

9. John (w/Rick Ross)- Him and Ross went back and forth spitting bars and they killed the track. Really like this track. 4/5

10. Abortion- When I seen the track title I was like what the hell is this. But it wasn’t what I thought it was and I actually liked the track. 3.5/5

11.  So Special (w/John Legend)- Had big expectations for this track seeing I’m a big fan of John Legend and it didn’t fail, definitely feeling this track. 3/5

12. How To Love- I remember first hearing this track,I hated it. After a few listens it wasn’t as bad as I originally thought. 2.5/5

13. President Carter- This was a really nice track also, one of my favorite tracks on the album. 4.5/5

14. It’s Good (w/Jadakiss and Drake)- This is the track where Wayne took a nice shot at Jay-Z but besides that the track was nice and Jadakiss always kill any track he’s on. 3.5/5

15. Outro (Feat. Bun B, Busta Rhymes, Nas and Shyne)- Like the Interlude it just features other artists spitting and this would have been a perfect track because Bun B, Busta Rhymes and Nas killed this track but Shyne sounded terrible on this track, don’t know what happened to his voice. 4/5

16. I Like the View(Bonus Track)- This track was nothing special but it wasn’t bad either. 3/5

17. Mirror (w/Bruno Mars)(Bonus Track)- Really nice track, feeling this track. 4/5

18. Two Shots(Bonus Track)- Like this track also and really laid back also. 3/5

Overall the album wasn’t really that great but a good album and it had a few standout tracks. I think it’s the worse of the entire Carter series. So I’ll give the album about but that’s not a bad thing because I like those albums. What are you thoughts about the Carter IV? What’s your favorite track off the Carter IV?
