Lil Wayne was already one of my favorite artists, but Tha Carter III just solidified my opinion. Being from New Orleans just made me like Wayne even more than the average fan. 11 year old me would say that Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter III was his best album of all time. 10 years later, Wayne has now released two more Carter albums and I still feel the same way about Tha Carter III.
