Lil Wayne

hip hop // neo-soul remixed

I’ll admit it’s odd for me to be writing on a fairly popular dirty south rap star, but this track “Shooter” has been on solid rotation since I first peeped. The casually dope bassline vibes underneath syncopated soul lyrics from Robin Thicke. Weezy gets in his breathy interjections every couple seconds until he lays into it heavy, nearly 90 seconds after the track starts. Tommy B describes it eloquently, “He’s got an easy drawl on this song, not the playful rasp from the rest of the album but a laid-back, unforced stream-of-consciousness that matches up perfectly with the track’s back-porch sunny-Alabama-afternoon lope.” Thicke’s 2003 soul track “Oh Shooter” bore that addictive lope, only it had Robin’s vocal crooning instead of Lil Wayne’s loose lyrics.
Firey southern rap dropped into a soulful riverboat groove.

    I read before I listened and I thought to myself, “I am going to hate this track.” But then I was pleasantly surprised. My ears approved.

    It’s definitely the ‘descending sonar-blips from Gang Starr’s Mass Appeal that do it for me.

  2. Brian J. Hong :

    I like!

  3. Esque :

    Normally, I’m not a very big fan of Lil Wayne’s type of southern sound. I usually prefer my dirty south more of the “dungeon family” variety. But this track is absolutely infectious, after about the 1st minute in you can’t stop nodding your head to it.
