Anyone who was old enough to witness Lil Wayne's run up until 2008's Tha Carter III knows it was a thrilling spectacle. Wayne established himself as the biggest and arguably best rapper alive through a prolific output of official mixtapes, features, and unfortunately, leaks. The constant outpouring of unofficial material meant that Wayne had to start his long-awaited album Tha Carter III from scratch. When it did arrive, the album sold over 1 million copies in a week, making it a victory lap that was impossible not to celebrate. It's difficult to choose a definitive Wayne project, especially due to the huge number of full-lengths he's released over his long career, but Tha Carter III is often looked at as his crowning achievement at least partially due to the narrative surrounding it.

On Saturday, DJ Akademiks made the argument that Tha Carter III does not deserve to be called a classic and is "just a pretty good album that was HELLA overhyped based on the body of work for Wayne for the 24 months preceding it." It didn't take long for his opinion to cause a Twitter-wide debate over the album. Let's just say, Lil Wayne is a subject that people get pretty passionate about.
