    Hot Boys Guerilla Warfare Released 20 Years Ago

    After the passing of 2Pac and Biggie, there weren’t many artists that intrigued me a lot. During this time, Cash Money and No Limit start popping off.

    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…
