    Poetic License: The Art Of Writing
    Apr 17, 2015 at 11:33am
    Poetic license is not a new concept. The idea of poetic license can be traced back to the Greco-Roman classical era and is derived from the Latin words, 'poeta' ('maker') and 'licentia' ('to be permitted,' 'liberty'). The concept was encouraged by a Greek philosopher by the name of Aristotle (maybe you've heard of this dude?). In one of the first-ever treatise to describe poetry and literary theory, the philosopher referred to something called "poetic effect"-- which, today, we would call poetic license.

    With the controversy surrounding Young Thug's Barter Six heating up every day, most Southern rappers have been wise to stay removed from any alleged beef between Thug and Lil Wayne.

    Young Thug is causing new headlines every day as we prepare for Friday's release of Barter Six, no longer Carter Six due to legal threats--presumably from Lil Wayne's camp. Still, Thug continues to make moves that will likely offend devotees of Weezy and his seminal Carter album series. Yesterday, on Instagram, Thugga confirmed that the Barter Six release party will take place in Hollygrove, New Orleans, which is, of course, Lil Wayne's home neighborhood.

    The chemistry between Wayne and Drake is surreal. Even though Drake is considered Lil Wayne’s protégé, he has diligently worked his way up to his boss’ level and might have even superseded him. Regardless, when Tune and Drizzy collide on a record, they always produce the best music together. Their catalog is longer than Anthony Davis’ wingspan. They have bangers like “My Darlin Baby,” “Stunt Hard,” "Used To," “Successful,” and “Unstoppable.” While they enjoy churning out goodies like Mr.

    If Thugger hadn't stirred up enough drama by naming his debut album Carter 6, before Lil Wayne's Carter 5 has even seen a release date, he continued to cause controversy by posing nude on the album cover, and laying out the album's title in phallic formation over... well, you know where.

    Ranking Lil Wayne's 13 Mixtapes From Worst To Best
    Apr 7, 2015 at 12:30pm
    Lil Wayne didn't get the nickname "Mixtape Weezy" for nothing. Over the course of hip-hop history, very few artists have used the art of the mixtape to their advantage as well as Weezy F. It's helped to blow up the likes of Wiz Khalifa, A$AP Rocky and even Drake over the past decade, but Wayne's 13 mixtapes came when he was already a star. He didn't need the tapes to become a star, but they certainly propelled him in to GOAT territory by simply crushing the output of his competitors.
