Re: Hip-Hop 101: Who you should be listening to.
I definitely would have put Wayne on the Must Listen To section when he released his Dedication mixtapes, Tha Carter II and Da Drought 3. However, after DD3, he started to severely decline. Tha Carter III was a huge disappointment, his verses on almost every song that he's on (Ludacris' Last of a Dying breed is an exception, he did awesome).
To be frank, Wayne is inconsistent.
