I think I’m way too old to be loving Lil Wayne and just knew I’d hate it when the DJ said Wayne would be singing on his latest “How to Love”. I tried. I listened even for some played out autotune and didn’t even hear that. What I DID hear was great lyrics, borderline poetic.
You never credit yourself so when you got older
It’s seems like you came back 10 times over
Now you’re sitting here in this damn corner
Looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder
I got to thinking about general Comebacks. Doing things that make you feel uncomfortable. Like a rapper trying to sing. Does he sound like Kermit the frog behind an acoustic guitar? Did he REALLY write this song?
None of it really matters, for real for real, he took a risk. Comeback’s are about taking some. The kind that scares the sh!t out of you …and as a result others too.
No rapper, not even Comeback Girls can stay the same forever.
