Lil Wayne

June 10 Lil Wayne "The Carter III" The undisputed rapper of the moment – his “Lollipop” has hit No. 1, and Lil Wayne can be heard on Usher’s “Love in This Club – finally drops his much-anticipated “The Carter III,” an album delayed after an earlier Internet leak. The raspy, theatrical rapper has been on a hot streak of late – name a popular hip-hop or R&B star over the past two years, and Lil Wayne’s name is probably nearby – and the performance of early singles off “The Carter III” show no signs of slowing him down.
