The Artist: Lil Wayne
The EP: The Leak (Cash Money/Universal, 2007)
The Shortcoming: Lyrically, there's nothing disappointing about The Leak. "I'm Me" alone would have been worth the price of admission on this one. But back in 2007 when it was released, the self-proclaimed "Fireman" literally had the world on fire as everyone waited for Tha Carter III to drop. And this is what Wayne tried to use to extinguish them? A five song EP, dog? Five songs? That's all?! We got over it...but despite the solid critical feedback this one got, we'd be lying if we said we weren't disappointed that this was all Wayne had for us at that time.
