What more can be said about DeWayne Michael Carter? Recently named the "Hottest MC In The Game" by MTV, Weezy is looking to go from "best alive" to "best ever" with the first real taste of his much-anticipated Carter III. Outstanding, a softer toned song that clearly is not intended to be a single, nonetheless, shows serious wordplay skill, complete with Wayne's eccentric similes about everything you'd never expect to be rapped about in a song. However, the hook (or lack thereof) proves he is still ready to enter uncharted territory with his music. DJ Cipha Sounds, NOT Hip-hop legend Dr. Dre, provides a simple harp-laced beat, possibly so the listener can focus on the future legends' lyrics. Either way, Outstanding tastes good as an appetizer until the main course arrives in early 2008.
