    When roused by witty company (Nicki Minaj on "Mercy," J. Cole on "Green Ranger"), he sounds like the greatest rapper ever to dream of competing in the X Games.

    For all its flaws, this tape still stands as evidence that Dwayne Carter isn't falling off as much as you might be hearing about.

    Although D4 will not be celebrated as much some of his other work, he does reminds all why Hova considered sending "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)" to "the Mixtape Weezy."

    This project is full of punch lines and clever word play. Buts that about it. Lil Wayne should really put out a No Ceilings 2 because that wasThis project is full of punch lines and clever word play. Buts that about it. Lil Wayne should really put out a No Ceilings 2 because that was his best mixtape and this is far from it. Expand
