With the fifth installation of Tha Carter getting pushed back to December, Southern rapper Lil Wayne has dropped yet another single. The title: "Gotti," and it features an intro verse from The Lox.
While the screaming guitar chords and "same time Gotti got" refrain is a little corny, it's really the verses here where Lil Wayne is sounding more coherent and focused than he has in years. Bar after bar, Wayne gets a little nostalgic over his childhood and rise in the hip hop industry. While not a perfect song, it's a welcome change of pace from the material he's been dropping lately. Maybe there's a glimmer of hope for Carter V afterall.
