Lil Wayne Made Magic On “Walk In”
Celebrate Mannie Fresh’s 51st birthday with this spooky banger from Lil Wayne’s classic “Tha Carter.”
Positioned as the official introduction to his game-changing album Tha Carter, “Walk In” found Fresh conjuring an eerie backdrop, brimming with haunting choral vocals and a minor-key chord progression. Stabs of slick guitar ground the beat in reality, but otherwise we’re looking at a different plane altogether. One in which Weezy can enact all manner of superhuman abilities, floating overhead and delivering one of the best lyrical salvos of his studio-album career.
“I take your grandma pacemaker and just hand her the piece, not two fingers I simultaneously pop two bangers,” he spits, blending sharp wordplay with a dexterous flow. “You do not want Angus, USDA prime beef, you’re dead meat.” It’s no wonder that he came to call himself the “best rapper alive,” a claim no doubt emboldened by the calming presence of Mannie Fresh, eternally in his corner. Happy birthday, Mr. Fresh!
I hear you haters slandering me, I just hand ’em to P
Any drama, I pace it like Indiana
I take your grandma pacemaker and just hand her the piece
Not two fingers I simultaneously pop two bangers
You do not want Angus, USDA prime beef, you’re dead meat
I’m so ahead of these trendy rappers speed up
I’m already hot when another one starting to heat up
Got Mannie hot with me cuz I always beat his beat up
