Ranking Lil Wayne's 13 Mixtapes From Worst To Best
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.

While Lil Wayne deals with label trouble, his fans have to bare the brunt of it. In January he gave us Sorry 4 The Wait 2, but everyone is still anticipating Tha Carter V.
