Lil Wayne - Tha Carter III (2008)

Updated: Mar 26


In the latest episode of Columbia House Party, hosts Jake Goldsbie and Blake Murphy are joined by basketball and culture writer Alex Wong (@steven_lebron, stevenlebron.com) to break down Lil Wayne’s 2008 smash hit, Tha Carter III. At the very peak of his power as the self-proclaimed Best Rapper Alive, Lil Wayne goes way outside of the usual rap album construct to push himself and the listener creatively. There are some misses as a result, but Wayne’s claim to be atop the game in that moment holds up well. Find out more about the long wait between Tha Carter II and III, Lil Wayne’s impact on a number of hip-hop subgenres, and how Lil Wayne provided a pathway for artists controlling their music in the online era on this week’s podcast.
