Featuring the single “Prom Queen” and released right after his hip-hop mixtape No Ceilings, Rebirth
is Lil Wayne
’s rap-rock album. The rapper fronts a live a band on most cuts, with crunching guitars and thunderous drums supplying the heavy metal backbeat. Best of the bunch is the jittery “Get a Life,” which finds the rapper riding the song’s new wave-inspired beat as if his Cash Money label just signed Devo
and couldn’t be happier.
