Believe it or not, Wayne owns the streets right now. He has been flooding the market with himself whenever possible; through collaborations, remixes and mixtapes, he is truly making it rain.
The Drought 3 is his latest installment meant to keep the thirst alive for his Carter 3 album due out this summer. He demolishes nearly every beat on this disc in amazing fashion. It seems that the rhymes in his head refuse to stay put song after song. Weezyâ€™s version of â€œUpgrade Uâ€ and â€œThis is Why Iâ€™m Hotâ€ begins The Drought 3 with a bang. Showing his flare for the dramatic, he puts up his red flag and shows his gang affiliations over Jeezyâ€™s â€œI Luv Itâ€ and talks about why he â€œkisses his daddyâ€ over Khaledâ€™s â€œWe Taking Overâ€ beat. This flare goes into overkill a little with him singing over Gnarls Barkleyâ€™s â€œCrazyâ€ and his not-so-sexy imitation of Ciaraâ€™s â€œPromise.â€ These, however, are minor drawbacks compared to the insane flows over Jibbs â€œKing Kong,â€ Lil Boosieâ€™s â€œZoom,â€ and Jim Jones â€œRepping Time.â€
The fact that he has verses on half of these songs already either through the original version or the official remixes makes these verses even greater. Hopefully, The Drought will be over soon and we can get an official album, but this is a good enough supply to last for a minute.
