Lil Wayne


The Grammy Award-winning rapper's attempt at rock/rap

ADM rating[?]


UK Release date
  1. 6.0 |   Rolling Stone know that it's his rock & roll record — not such a crazy idea for this leather-clad Martian with serious rock-star appeal. The problem is that Wayne has very questionable taste in rock

  2. 5.0 |   Drowned In Sound

    Lil Wayne has earned his time in the spotlight the hard way, but it’s hard to view Rebirth as anything other than resting on his laurels

  3. 4.5 |   Pitchfork

    Most definitely a flop, terribly unsexy, and contains surprisingly few shit jokes
    Read Review

  4. 4.0 |   Eye Weekly

    ...from horrendous Limp Bizkit cast-offs to goofy pop-punk that no sane person would pay cash money for

  5. 4.0 |   NME

    Print edition only

  6. 4.0 |   The Guardian

  7. 4.0 |   Eye Weekly

  9. 4.0 |   Uncut

    Print edition only

  10. 4.0 |   Evening Standard

    Rebirth is as close to unlistenable as any major star has been in years
    Read Review

  11. 2.0 |   No Ripcord’s remarkable how an artist can go so quickly from making one of the last decade’s best records to making one of the new year’s worst

  12. 2.0 |   Daily Telegraph

    If The Darkness came back as a rap act, they might sound like this – and that is not a good thing

  13. 2.0 |   The Times

    The solitary highlight is Eminem’s verse on Drop the World

  14. 1.4 |   Beats Per Minute
