Lil Wayne is like…
Lil Wayne’s kind-of-new album that was recorded half a year ago just dropped, and like most of his projects, the metaphors, similes and punch lines are aplenty. Maybe it’s because we missed Wayne, but there seem to be an exorbitant amount of similes on I Am Not A Human Being. It was like Weezy said “like” every other line.
The crack research staff at TSS decided to go song-by-song, counting all of the similes for you and highlighting the dopest examples and a few that made them scratch their heads.
Song: “Gonorrhea” (Feat. Drake)
“Like” Count: 7
Dope: “I’m so ahead of my time like dog years…” – This line is so mind-bendingly awesome. It’s like a time-warp in one sentence. Our brains may explode trying to comprehend, actually.
WTF: “I ball like Solange, India Arie, Britney Spears…” – Okay, look: of all the clever homonyms in Hip-Hop, trying to stretch “ball” to sound like “bald” is the worst.
