a true artist
15 March 2010 | by (Portland, OR, USA) – See all my reviews

I was completely unfamiliar with Lil Wayne's rap music before I watched this movie. While I can't say that I am a newly converted fan, I feel that he is undoubtedly an artist in the truest sense. He exists in his own world, makes his art pretty much for himself because he has to, and is utterly dedicated to his art, whether or not anyone else considers it art. The fact that he is a commercial success is just cake. This guy could be doing any other sort of art and be the same person as far as I can tell. He reminds me of another great unique artist, Syd Barrett. I have no idea how harmful his Syzzurup is, I just hope it doesn't kill him and leave the world with another brilliant casualty. He is definitely an "out there", bizarre person, and who knows what he'd be doing if he didn't find a creative outlet. I find him completely fascinating and I was moved by at least a couple of his pieces. I don't care for the p***y and drugs stuff, and I don't know that he really does either, but he sure knows how to apply them to his art. The guy is just a bottomless creative force, and I think it's great that he has an audience. I will definitely try to stay informed about his career.
