someone did say that. I forget who now. But yeah I did read that. It's not true. He's terrible at guitar. Which is part of what makes it so awesome that he plays guitar. I mean, I'd kill to be a fly on the wall in that meeting with the label (Universal).

Lil Wayne: "Okay, so I'm gonna play guitar on this album."
Label Execs: ...

I think the track "Paradise" on REBIRTH contains lyrics that sum up the entire album's concept: "you can call me crazy / I've been called worse / it's like I've got it all / but what's it all worth?" -- Weezy "the artist" has grown to Kurdt-level of fame, and he knows it. So he can either kill himself, or he can kill his image. I think artistically he made this album in an attempt to kill the Weezy character. I mean think about the difference between REBIRTH and CARTER III. It's insane. In his own lyrics, he always compares himself to Biggie, Pac, Jay-Z... but (especially after watched THE CARTER docu) I find him way closer to Cobain. The age, the talent, the super-fast rise, the addiction, the not being able to cope -- except they cope differently. I mean there's excess, but it's gone about differently.
