It’s About Time Lil’ Wayne Made a Bad Song

There comes a time in every rapper’s career where he must ask himself the ever-important question, “Can I really keep living my life making up these meaningless songs about money and hoes?” Most rappers pause for a minute, polish their bling, look at their mansion full of “tip-drills” and “baby mamas” and then answer this question with a resounding, “Yes.”

Apparently, Lil’ Wayne found himself at this familiar crossroad recently, but he decided to stand up and go against the grain, this time writing a song about money and underage jail-bait.

Wayne’s new single,”Prom Queen” is definitely on the experimental side. And by experimental, I mean you might have to experiment with mind-altering drugs before listening to it.

While I can always appreciate when a musician decides to step outside of the what the mainstream radio-listening-audience considers to be normal, I consider this to be nothing more than an attempt to see if people would justify buying a piece of crap as long as it has his name on it….and I like where he’s going with this.

As horrifying as this single is (how else would one describe Wayne’s wailings over a rock-inspired beat and lyrics that include, “I love the fancy underwear, I sit behind her every year”), watch it sell, and catch on big time, proving that most people lose all proper sense of judgement after a hit record. That said, I’d like to take this moment to admit that I did purchase “Tha Carter III,” and think it’s was the best rap album of 2008. Lil’ Wayne, it’s about time you released a bad single. If you haven’t heard it yet, check out one of the first You Tube videos of “Prom Queen.” DISCLAIMER: THE POP FIX is not responsible for any ear, or brain damage one might experience after watching this clip.

    Lil wayne plays guitar, all nine notes of the verse. Huge breakthrough.

    This song scares me.

    This was a perfect example of what I think too. Prom queen is creepy, his voice is too scratchy and I KNOW if I ever saw him, he’d rape me–and I’m a boy.

    Silent guitar solo? Why not just air guitar? Is it only there to make a rapper who has enjoyed explosive overnight success feel like he’s just that much cooler?
