Lil Wayne on LeanIt’s crazy that for as fucked up as Wayne is here, he can recall rhymes at all. The raps themselves aren’t tragic. It’s the fact that we see Wayne at his most drugged out, robotically sipping from his double cup and unashamedly demonstrating what friends expressed so much worry about in The Carter documentary. Wayne should be celebrated for being unapologetic in (almost) all of his endeavors, but when rappers like Gucci Mane are also reportedly struggling with addiction, it’s scary to see somebody so incapacitated. It’s a striking image to tie his health issues to, and one that seems to verify the concerns of those close to Wayne. Even Westwood can tell how much the syrup affects him.
