Scarface Says Lil Wayne Will Go Down as the Greatest Millennial Rapper
Considering the time Lil Wayne has spent in the industry, it can be easy to assume that he's older than he is, but Weezy just turned 34 in September, qualifying him to some as a millennial, particularly since many of his peers, such as Jay Z and Eminem, are well into their 40s. By comparison, J. Cole is 31, Drake is 30 and Kendrick Lamar is 29.
Scarface recently crowned Wayne as the greatest rapper of his generation, saying that not many born in his era can touch his legacy. "I think that Wayne will go down in history as one of the best," Face says in the above video. "He’s not one of the best, he’s probably THE best. Wayne, that’s a dangerous lil’ nigga, man…he’ll be the greatest rapper of his time. He’s a millennial. He’ll be the greatest millennial of all time. Nobody can beat him. You give me a motherfucker that popped out their ass in the 1980s that’s THAT good. Shout out to Lil Wayne, man. He’s so fucking dope."
Wayne's first album, Tha Block Is Hot, was released in November of 1999, when he was just 17 years of age. His ascension since, to eventually calling himself the "Greatest Rapper Alive," featured albums and mixtapes by the dozen, his output and lyrical ferocity often going unmatched for years on end.
A pair of Wayne and Face tracks are included below, Wayne guesting on "Forgot About Me" and the remix to "Big Dogg Status."
