Has Lil Wayne Fell Off?

 

Whether Lil’ Wayne fell off or not is obviously an opinion, but the fact remains that he has kept his name in the game for a couple decades now.  He’s been consistently dropping verses in features when he isn’t dropping Mixtapes, or when Birdman isn’t holding his album hostage ( Wayne Suing Label for $51 million dollars )

I’ve heard a variety of opinions on Lil’ Wayne, from “He fell off” to ” I like his mixtapes better”.

In my opinion, Wayne has gone through many phases during his music career, when it comes to the type of music he makes.  I prefer the type of Lil’ Wayne that makes meaningful, introspective, positive, songs  like “Tie My Hands”, which was dedicated to the New Orleans’ Flood Victims (Which is his hometown)

… and even sometimes I’m in the mood for  the type of Wayne that makes a “F**k you, I made it, and I’ll throw it in your face” type of music, like A Milli.

What I’ve noticed about Wayne’s music is, no matter what he’s talking about in his music, he always does a good job of creating a “theater of the mind” for the listener, and I can appreciate that.  He also always has very witty puns in his punchlines, that even I, as attentive as I am to lyrics, miss the first time. He always has a few double entendres in his music and sometimes even triple entendres. (See examples below)

“Real G’s move in silence like lasange”

or

“That’s my M.O., add a B to that shit”

  • M.O. = Modus operendi, the way he does things
  • M.O.B. = his mob (Young Money crew)
  • B could mean his blood crew also
  • Money Over Bitches, his motto that he lives by

Broadcasting’s Relationship with News

Broadcasting has been impacting the world for centuries (yes, plural!).  Dating back to 1897, when K.F. Braun invented the cathode-ray tube.

Broadcasting Timeline

At first, broadcasting was only possible through radio wavelengths, until the Television was invented.

Today, live news is delivered to us all day every day, mainly using Television or Radio… In my opinion, the digital age is replacing the way we receive news, it is more convenient when a story related to your interests, pops up in your phones’ notifications.

Each station that broadcasts the news, will subtly convey their own opinion alongside the story, which influences the audience that listens to that station.
