Once upon a time, I respected Lil Wayne's skills as an artist. But now he's added the cherry to the shit sundae that is his current career - contributing a verse to new labelmate Paris Hilton's new single, "Good Time." You can witness the horror for yourself by checking out a clip of the song in the replies. The rapper actually sums up the entire situation fairly well in his verse's opening line "I'm fucked up/I can't tell you what's what."
