Video: Lil' Wayne on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" (6/20/08)

Wheezy might be a martian. He might be an alien. However, there's no disputing the fact that, regardless of Lil Wayne's origins, he's having a hell of a time being successful on planet Earth. His latest, official studio album, Tha Carter III, a record which some, if not most, are hailing as a masterpiece, was the first album since 2005 to sell 1 million copies in its first week in stores.

Of course, it certainly helps to have smash singles like "Lollipop" to help motivate people to buy your record. It also helps if you promote the shit out of your record as well. Performing two songs from Tha Carter III, Lil Wayne spits some truth while performing the aforementioned "Lollipop", as well as "A Millie". I'm a little bit underwhelmed by these performances, but I'm not sure why. Possibly its A) That this album has been getting a lot of hype, so anything that doesn't meet those standards is inherently disappointing. or B) Most--not all, but most--hip-hop is disappointing live or C) Most songs don't sound as good when reduced to a small video size.

At any rate, the man's got the number one album in the country right now. Watch him do his thing at the top of the post.

A masterpiece? please. His music lacks any semblance of quality music. Has the line between music as entertainment and music as art been completely blurred?

Yes, Lil wayne is as popular as blowjobs right now. Is it because he is radically pushing the boundaries of music as an artform? Is it because of his new and unique perspective on life, the universe, and everything?

No. Perhaps he is as popular as blowjobs because his smash single is about recieving them.

If all one has to do to become famous and write 'masterpieces' is write songs about something as popular as receiving oral sex and objectifying women, count me in.

Watch out for 'The story of the penis and its wunderful adventures in vagina land' coming out next spring.
