Image Credit: RD/Erik Kabik/Retna DigitalWhen Lil Wayne got out of Rikers Island last month, many expected the prolific rhymer to hit the studio and release a single as soon as humanly possible. He didn’t. Though he did get back to work, it wasn’t until just minutes ago that “6’7,” the lead single to his forthcoming Tha Carter IV album hit the Intenet. It’s a frenetic, bass-heavy banger made by the same producer who set the tone for Weezy’s last Carter, Bangladesh. He’s the beatsmith behind 2008’s surprise monster “A Milli.” And this one aims to trump its success. Meeting the challenge on the hookless song, Wayne’s rhymes are as slick as ever.
Addressing his competition, he raps “I do it like a king do./ If these n—– animals, I’mma have a mink soon.” And referring to his recent jail stint, Wayne says the hard time wasn’t that rough at all. “I got through that sentence like a subject and a predicate,” he spits. His skills haven’t diminished a bit.
Have you heard “6’7” yet? What do you think of it? Sound off in the comments section.
