It’s no doubt that Lil Wayne changed the mixtape game for the better. The rapper has some iconic ones out there such as ‘Dedication 2’ and ‘Da Drought 3’. Lets take a look at his 10 best mixtapes.
10] Dedication 3 (2008)
Not as good as his first two, but you can’t deny the overall beauty of this work. ‘Still I Rise’ is his best track and the actual track of ‘Dedication 3’ is wonderful as well.
9] SQ4 (2002)
This is some of Weezy’s old stuff, back when he was still a youngling, this is some of his best work from the beginning of his monstrous career.
8] The Prefix (2004)
This was back when he and Jay-Z’s feud was at its highest, years before the made ‘Mr. Carter’. ‘December 4 (Freestyle) is the best song on here.
7] Sorry 4 The Wait (2011)
This album may feature the best Lil Wayne song ever, and that prestigious title goes to “6 Foot, 7 Foot”. And ‘Sorry 4 the Wait’ is a phenom as well.
6] Sorry 4 The Wait (2015)
This piece of work pretty much stated that Lil Wayne was back in the game.
5] The Dedication (2005)
This was when Lil Wayne started to really put things together and change things up, all this happened at the age of 23.
4] No Ceilings (2009)
A forgotten gem in Lil Wayne’s Mixtape career, but this one stands among the best of his mid-decade classics.
3] The Drought is Over 2 (Tha Carter III Sessions) (2007)
Might be a super weird track that is generally considered a “leak”, but regardless this one is still a banger. His song ‘I Feel like Dying’ is a gut-wrenching take on addiction and depression.
2] Dedication 2 (2006)
‘Georgia…Bush’ is a beautifully crazy song about Wayne’s hometown in New Orleans, post-Hurricane Katrina, it’s a great song. ‘Dedication 2’ confirmed that Lil Wayne was a force to be reckoned with.
1] Da Drought 3 (2007)
This comes from Lil Wayne’s undisputed Golden Years. Twenty-Seven Tracks at two hours and every single song is a glorified winner.
