‘D4’ is free, as it should be

As soon as my ears stopped bleeding from hearing Lil’ Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” only a year ago, the bite-sized reincarnate of Polly Pocket has returned with another poorly-written, terribly thought out album: “D4,” or “Dedication 4.”
Lyrically, the album is almost as lame as its rip-off name, “D4.” Anyone remember the song “Laffy Taffy?” by D4L? Exactly. Has anyone shot a D4 Canon camera before? “D4” is almost as original as Nike shorts, TOMS and playing the guitar.
I’m sure well-known names such as Canon D4 and D4L didn’t factor into his decision to name the album “D4,” but that’s no surprise. When was the last time Lil’ Wayne put an iota of thought into his albums, anyway?
According to LilTunechi’s Twitter, Lil’ Wayne said, “D4 is stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid.”
That’s right, Weezy. It is stupid. It is very stupid, but not in a dope way. It’s “stuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid” because hardly any of the lyrics make sense.
Although “D4” features the likes of Lil’ Mouse, Nicki Minaj, Birdman and more, those who gave Lil Wayne a second chance after his last album flop are not exactly gushing over “D4” yet.
The Twitter world has flooded with disappointed Lil’ Wayne fans, calling “Dedication 4” “mediocre.”
Other disappointed listeners wrote, “Idk what to think of Lil’ Wayne anymore.”
Instead of ripping apart Lil’ Wayne’s latest atrocity/jumbled up garbage, I am going to simply list a few of his most laughable lyrics in his latest album.
She’s so sophisticated / She’ll catch a n---a nut and then refrigerate it.
My, my, Weezy. Bet you wouldn’t put those lyrics in your mother’s refrigerator.
Trukfit money Mountain Dew money, tell em / I get better like fine wine I’m fire like cayenne.
Interesting observation, Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. If anyone knew what a Trukfit was, maybe fans wouldn’t be so upset about how terrible your songs have become over the years. My advice? Cut down on all that “Blunt Blowin’.”
I’m a Republican voting for Mitt Romney / You lazy bitches is f--king up the economy (Nicki Minaj)
After raking through my news feed, my favorite Facebook posts this week were those of conservative Republicans stating how awesome Nicki Minaj is voting for endorsing Mitt Romney. First of all, let’s get the facts straight. Minaj might have spit lyrics on “D4” about Romney, but everybody knows she lives for the shock factor. Who remembers back in February when she introduced her male alter-ego “Roman” during her Grammy performance, The Exorcism of Roman? The Exorcism of Roman equaled a lot of pissed off fans. And, according to VLADtv.com, even though Minaj has lived all over the United States, she hasn’t taken the time to exercise her right as an American citizen by registering to vote. All in favor of implementing a rule that bans people who aren’t politically educated or registered to vote from rapping or singing about their political beliefs or affiliations, say “I.”
So, there you have it - a collaboration of Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne, a mixture of two mindless human beings who, for some reason, have largely contributed to today’s society.
Many would agree that Lil Wayne is a practical hero among today’s younger generations, so why has he continued producing music that lacks substance or feeling? He proudly calls New Orleans home, but what is a true New Orleanian without soulful lyrics and meaningful verses?
In last year’s scathing article about “Tha Carter IV,” I was certain there was no way Lil Wayne would produce more rubbish. In fact, the final sentence was, “Better luck next time, Weezy,” and, boy, did he need it.
Who knew he’d make a comeback twice as bad as the first? Time to retire, Weezy. Seems like you’ve forgotten where you came from.
