i think it's funny how lil wayne's says that he is "HIP-HOP" it's mmake me laugh :) They're are WAY better rappers out there than him. And i bet if you herd them, you would thnk the same. For example: Immortal Technique, Masta Ace, Living Legends, And Jedi Mind Tricks just too name a feww. I also believe that there has never been a better rap since tupac. Lil Wayne has too much flash, not enough substance.
