On The Cool
18 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'll begin by saying that this documentary is for anybody and everybody -- doesn't matter if you're into hip-hop/rap/Lil Wayne or not. This is what documentaries are meant to be: a glimpse into a fascinating slice of life otherwise unavailable to the viewer; an account that's unbiased and without agenda.

My knowledge of Lil Wayne was minimal before my first viewing of "The Carter." Personally speaking, I was blown away. My respect and admiration for Mr. Carter and his work ethic (and his work) sky-rocketed. The experience was heartbreaking, hilarious, upsetting, inspiring; full of the complexity inherent in life, as one would expect, especially from such a polarizing figure.

Spending some time in his world made it clear: Lil Wayne is the result of lifelong dedication and endless hard work; an artist to the core, a living legend -- an American treasure, no doubt, rough around the edges or not -- on my daddy's soul.
