Weezy is keeping his crown

After his most prolific year to date, Lil Wayne is ready for 2007 and this is clear by the recent stuff which has been dropping on mixtapes and the internet. He was named "Lyricist of the Year" by MTV's Mixtape Monday and for good reason. Who had more material in one year than Weezy? Who dropped a mixtape (shit, an album) hotter than Dedication 2? And though it was dropped in November of 2005, Tha Carter II was all over 2006. And despite his comments on Jay, Wayne has relationships with two of the hottest R&B artists in Lloyd and Chris Brown and one of the hottest rap artists other than he, in Juelz Santana. You can pretty much expect Wayne to be at the forefront of hip-hop throughout the next year.

Poppin (Remix) - Chris Brown feat. Lil Wayne & Juelz Santana
Now who would have thought this dude Chris Brown, with the first single of "Run It" would still have a hold on the R&B game? This dude is FOR REAL. "Poppin" was already one of my favorite singles out, but having a remix with Wayne and Juelz just made it even better. The track sounds a lil patched up, but the verses of Wayne and Juelz are definitely fresh.

Run (Part 2) - Ghostface Killah feat. Raekwon & Lil Wayne
Weezy is the perfect compliment to these two Wu-Tang legends. The song is fire, the production is sick and when I got this track a few weeks back I was stunned to see these artists on the same song, but it works well.
