The Best of Lil Wayne’s First Singles

It’s been a busy couple of weeks for Lil Wayne. First, he beefed with Pusha T after the release of his song, “Exodus 23:1.” Then, he released his Trukfit clothing line at Macy’s. Then, he launched his new website called that’s designed to give fans a closer look at his day-to-day life. Then, he had to get involved in the fiasco involving his Young Money artist Nicki Minaj at Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert. Then…well, you get the point. It’s been busy, busy, busy lately for Wayne.

And yet, in the midst of all that, he still found time to drop “My Homies Still,” featuring Big Sean, the first single from his next album, I Am Not A Human Being 2. But, because of everything that he’s had going on lately—did we mention he’s been at a ton of 2012 NBA Playoff games, too?—the single kind of got lost in the mix when it dropped last Friday. So, we wanted to give it some much-needed attention by giving Wayne our “Guess Who’s Back!” treatment.

At this point, we’ve done it for artists like Nas, 50 Cent, Kanye West, and Rick Ross. But, if you’re still not familiar with it, it’s where we take every “first single” that an artist has ever released and rank them. And, now that Wayne has 12 first singles under his belt (including singles from solo and collaborative albums), we figured he’s long overdue for it. So, with that in mind, take a few minutes off from your busy schedule and check out how all of Wayne’s singles stack up to one another.—Chris Yuscavage
