Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne & More: Rap Genius Presents the Dopest Lines of the WeekPosted by Nathan S. on 09/07/12 | Filed under Lines of the Week
If there’s anyone more obsessed with breaking down hip-hop’s smallest details than RefinedHype, it’s the good folks at Rap Genius. Well you know what they say, if you can’t beat em’, invite ‘em onto RefinedHype to share their five dopest Lines of the Week. Or at least that’s what they’ll say now. Enjoy.
“This week finds us celebrating the release of Lil Wayne’s “Dedication 4 mixtape”. Hip-hop fans held their breath to see if we were going to get the Weezy of “Dedication 2” (effortlessly clever, confident, and inventive) or the syruped-out, Auto-Tuned singing of the nearly unlistenable “Dedication 3”. Luckily, at first glance, it seems like the former is the case. Wayne appears to have put his skateboard down long enough to rap well, and longtime fans are extremely grateful.
In addition to Wayne, plenty of other stuff happened as well this week. Don Trip played kids’ games with his money, Kendrick Lamar blew our minds for about the 763rd time this year, Joell Ortiz made another in his long string of great dirty jokes, and the God Rakim gives us a blast from the past.
Enjoy the lines of the week.” - Shawn Setaro, Rap Genius EditorIndex: 1. #5 Don Trip - "Prolly" 2. #4 Rakim - "Wyndance" 3. #3 Joell Ortiz - "Feel So Good" 4. #2 Lil Wayne - "I Don't Lie" 5. #1 Kendrick Lamar - 100
