In case you live under a rock, lil Wayne dropped a new (fire) album last week and is currently on a press tour. So of course he's hitting the late night show circuit including kicking it with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show, which is the best late night show IMO.
Sidenote: I'm a huge fan of Jimmy Fallon. But I've been told this is an unpopular take?? Whatever. This office will debate anything for the sake of debating. He gets massive guests, is entertaining and truth be told, I'm a sucker for the games he plays. Wheel of Musical Impressions?? I could watch that for days. Electric.
BUT - with that being said - what happened to Dwayne Michael Carter last night on The Tonight Show was an absolute travesty.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!?!
I've watched this no less than 10 times and I just keep getting angrier and angrier. That is VERY clearly Harry Potter.
What a crime.
Listen, it's not lil Wayne's fault that his brain just works at higher speeds than everyone else. How was he supposed to know Claire Danes and Lana Condor aren't any good at Pictionary?? He was set up for complete failure. These two may actually be the worst Pictionary players of all time. Ladies, you're watching one of the greatest brains in the rap game work and you can't follow along?? Sad.
Hey Jimmy! Put me and Ria in their spots and we would've nailed that shit. I mean 10/10 would've guessed that as soon as he put the finishing touches on the pot. Easy.
Same, Weezy. Same.
It does need to be addressed how shocking it is that he went with an actual tea pot instead of a blunt. As a guy who has a complete monopoly on the lighter flick sound, I wouldn't except something that boils water to be his go-to. Or I don't know, Harry's glasses? But hey, that brain is allowed to work how ever it wants. Who am I to tell the Best Rapper Alive how to create art?
Music, free-style, Pictionary. He's the best to ever do it.
Regardless, Dwayne Michael Carter is back, back. And nobody is complaining.
Weezy F Baby and the F is for 'Fuck Claire Danes and Lana Condor.'
