Man, thought Wayne was retiring. And I bet it will take three years for Kanye to follow up MBDTF with a solo record.

1-Why Lil Wayne WHY release another Rebirth...I'm just disappointed now & I have a terrible feeling that it will go gold like the other one did (how 500,000 people can be so wrong).
2-The Justin Bieber thing was a good call...How are you going to ask another MC to write your lines when you are rapping with other talented MC's/writers?
3-Really excited for that new T.I., Kill The King sounds like a good title.
4-I like what 50 is doing.
5-Take Care cannot come out soon enough.

Kill the King > Trouble. The latter seems a bit generic-sounding.

No one gives a shit about some of the opinions in this thread.

This Lil Wayne news is a perfect example of why I started to not give a shit after Da Drought 3. If he doesn't care, then I won't either. Fair trade.
