A Look Back at Lil Wayne’s Lyrical Gems on “Tha Carter”
"BM J.R." might be the realest song of the year.
Song: “Tha Heat”
Lyrics: I’ll be around when the times get ugly / When the wheels fall off and the tires stop running / The magazine empty and the nine stop busting / I bang my fists til my palms get bloody.
This may seem like an average line at first listen, but the image of Wayne with bloody palms is extremely saintlike. I’m not calling Wayne the second coming but… maybe I am.
