I have seen the future of rock & rap: Lil Wayne

I must admit I hated when Weezy picked up the guitar last year I saw him playing live. I mean he was on a cocaine-filled Prince-wannabe trip and really tried to play that twanger and he sucked at it.

But his mission to make rock music continues... The song "Prom queen" is pretty amazing: weird drum sounds, a wack guitar lick and too much autotune and Lil Wayne's weird mixture of singing and talking (or rapping?). But it has a killer chorus that makes me wanna listen to this over and over again. Especially those neat pop-influenced vocal harmonies in the end. I guess this is what happens when a rapper starts doing rock. Well, it's a lot better than what happens when a rocker starts to rap.
