“Lil Wayne is a genius, and not simply because he spends seven days a week in the studio, recording some of the most lyrically intricate, metaphor-laced verses in the history of the rap game off the top of his head, no pen, no pad.” By Brooklyne Gipson of the blog OCWeekly
I always enjoy jumping into the psyche of American pop culture and nothing intrigues me more than people referring to rappers as geniuses.
Let’s examine the genius of Lil’ Wayne just at a base level.
I’m not going to analyze too deeply here, but rather, I will provide a few lines from some of his, as Brooklyne Gipson would say, “lyrically intricate verses.”
1. From the song “Fuck the World” on his 1999 album “Tha Block is Hot” (I can already feel the genius dripping form the titles.)
“A young nigga screaming fuck the world and let ‘em die. Behind tints, tryna’ duck the world and smoking rie. Got my bandanna ‘round my head and pants to my feet. And got my eyes fire red and glock on my seat.”
Wow, if only William Shakespeare could have been such a genius. Our boy Lil’ amazingly fit in an amazing amount of negative African-American stereotypes into one verse. Well done young man.
2. From the song “Dick Pleaser” on his 2008 album “Dedication 3.” Again, such captivating titles.
“I gotta bith name Keisha she a real dick pleasa. But shawty from cuba still workin on her visa. Her girlfriend Lisa met her in porta rica. How she don’t suck dick but expect for me to eat her? That hoe crazy man and you don’t wanna meet her. But her home girl Nita swallow cum by the liter.”
Sorry, but no commentary is really necessary after that pure genius spit out by Lil’.
I will leave you with one more intellectual gem.
From the song “Abortion” on his 2011 album “Tha Carter IV”.
“I woke up this morning, dick rock hard. Ashed my blunt in my Grammy Award. You can save your bullshit on your memory card. If this real nigga business, then you niggas unemployed.
In a world full of ass-kissers and dick pullers. I’m tryna walk a straight line but the line crooked. I’m shooting for the stars, astronauts dodge bullets.”
HOLY, FUCKING, SHIT, that is pure GENIUS.
Step aside Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein, Leonardo Da Vinci, Sir Isaac Newton, etc., Lil’ Wayne is rapping about getting his genius dick sucked by whores, dumping weed ashes in his Grammy Award and wearing his pants below his ass.
And for those of you keeping score, Lil’ Wayne is reportedly worth around $95 million.
I truly hope the Mayans were right, because I’m ready for the apocalypse. If it doesn’t happen, China will surely win. Do you need any more evidence????
Hey Brooklyne Gipson; thanks for continuing to distort reality to the ever pandering lost souls of America.
If Lil’ Wayne is a genius, then my dick is 10 feet long.
“But the fact that some geniuses were laughed at does not imply that all who are laughed at are geniuses. They laughed at Columbus, they laughed at Fulton, they laughed at the Wright Brothers. But they also laughed at Bozo the Clown.” Carl Sagan
