Mixtape Weezy is back! If you’re a fan of not only Lil Wayne but Hip Hop overall, you know exactly who Mixtape Weezy, what he’s contributed to the game, and what he’s capable of at any given moment when he steps in the booth. With legendary mixtapes like the Dedication series, The Drought Is Over series, No Ceilings and more intact, his impact and greatness cannot be denied — ever. Once upon a time, Mixtape Weezy would hop on anyone’s record and killed it to the point where fans never knew who the original artist was. This was a magical era in Hip Hop and if you were outside during those times — you know.
Today, he drops off his 17th mixtape No Ceilings 3 as an early Christmas gift.
As we all know, Mixtape Weezy is an entirely different artist from Lil Wayne. I always saw Lil Wayne geared more towards album releases and features, but Mixtape Weezy is a different type of breed that smells blood similar to a Great White Shark. Some could/would argue that he’s “lost it” in some way, but regardless of anyone’s opinion, Wayne’s legacy is deeply cemented for eternity and he’s still dropping heat like this, being a 20+ year veteran in the game.
Speaking with Complex, the Young Money CEO explained his reasoning of dropping the tape:
“The mixtape game seemed to be a dying art and since I’m one of the pioneers of the craft, and it played such a big part in my career, I felt it was only right to resurrect it — Also, it’s a lot of songs out here I wanted to kill my way!”
No Ceilings 3 is hosted by none other than the living legend DJ Khaled, giving us the classic mixtape feel throughout the project and a sense of nostalgia.
