Lil Wayne is a legend of hip-hop. Having started his career as a teenager in the 90s, it is clear Wayne has been around for a while. He has seen pretty much all the music industry has to offer. It is hard to believe he is only 41 years old. However, those would be the facts. Overall, he still has a lot to give, and fans have been excited for him to drop Tha Carter VI. Instead, he dropped off a different project on Friday, although it serves as a teaser for what’s to come.
This project is simply called Tha Fix Before Tha VI. It is an appropriate name given that it is looking to be a prologue to what is coming soon. Of course, any time a legend like Wayne drops a new album, it is going to be a massive deal. This new mixtape only contains 10 songs, including the previously released “Kat Food.” Here, we are highlighting the tape’s opening effort, “Act Up,” which features some help from critically acclaimed Grammy winner, Jon Batiste.
When this song begins, you get an idea of exactly what Wayne was going for here. From the crescendos to the drawn-out build-up, it is obvious from the start that this is an intro song. However, once Wayne comes into the mix, you are met with some amazing bars that showcase just how good of an artist Wayne is, and has been for decades. We just hope we get Tha Carter VI sooner rather than later.
