Lil Wayne - On Fire

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
Cool & Dre
Album:
Rebirth

For the record, I support Lil Wayne’s movement to conquer other genres…in theory. Every great artist needs to evolve or die, and I’d love to hear Wayne do some serious headbanging, unless said headbanging sounds like On Fire. The new single off his Rebirth album, On Fire is a disjointed combination of some Cool & Dre production that rocks but doesn’t rock hard enough and Weezy’s always schizophrenic vocals and wordplay, which here simply aren’t strong enough to hold the track together. If On Fire is any indication of Rebirth as a whole, we may be looking at the “Michael Jordan plays baseball” portion of Wayne’s career, an admirable but ultimately failed attempt to prove his worth in another game. Then again, the Booth and I don’t always see eye to eye. Anyone disagree? Lil Wayne fanatics will be sure to get their fill of his royal Weezyness later this month when both Rebirth and his compilation album We Are Young Money drop on December 21.
