Lil Wayne’s latest record, Funeral, contained some of the most brazen verses from the veteran rapper in over a decade. Tracks such as “Mama Mia” and “Dreams” stood out as new career favorites, and highlighted the growth of an artist now in the third decade of their career.
On “Mahogany,” Wayne’s hunger is non-stop with seemingly zero breaths in between off-the-cuff rhyme schemes. Partnered with Mannie Fresh, longtime collaborator and New Orleans legend, Wayne is at his best on “Mahogany,” and it’s an utter joy to listen. This is Lil Wayne’s second honor on this site, citing Dec. 2018’s “Scared of the Dark” from Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.
