For a short time in the not so distant past, fans of “the best rapper alive” thought the list of best Lil Wayne songs ever had reached its final draft. Erroneous reports claimed that Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. had passed away in a Los Angeles hospital after a sudden bout of seizures and other complications. This would’ve been a sad end to one of the most prolific and successful music careers of our generation, but instead Lil Wayne dropped I Am Not a Human Being II, adding “Love Me” and “Rich as F**k” into the mix of fan-favorite tracks from his ten album portfolio. The king wasn’t dead; as far as fans were concerned, he was better than ever.
Hailing from New Orleans, Lil Wayne’s career started over 20 years ago when he was signed by Cash Money at the age of nine. He went platinum with his debut The Block is Hot in 1999 and hasn’t really slowed down since. After releasing Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne passed Elvis Presley – Elvis! – as the male artist with the most Billboard 100 songs (109) of all time.
