Editorial Review

Two talents responsible for multiple albums’ worth of club bangers the past few years should have no problem drawing fans way out to the Lube in Virginia, tailgating ban and all. Rick Ross, of the husky, slow-drawled baritone that delivers anthems of ostentatious spending of ill-gotten gains over glittery, orchestral beats, is the guest of the Sybil-like Lil Wayne, who is doing his best to convince the world that he’s not a human being. But that’s not just an album title. Weezy bolsters that claim with a wildly prolific creative output and a knack for creating oddball rap styles.
