Posted by Qwertyuiop on Friday, 09.19.08 @ 18:08pm


I say Hell no.

However,to his credit the carter I and II are actually fairly decent.To bad everything else he's dont has sucked.

i guarantee his success right now is a fad that'll die out i wish tommoro.

You are right xavier. Firstly, that autotuner thing (voice modulator?) has been way overdone. What else really does he got?

Posted by Worm on Friday, 01.16.09 @ 10:39am


Is this a joke? His music isn't fit to be recorded, let alone be immortalized in any hall of fame.

Are you kidding me?

There are few rappers left that are anywhere near as creative as Lil Wayne. Outkast... Jay-Z... Ludacris... These are all not just exceptionally talented rappers, they are also brilliant musicians. Furthermore... How many rappers can just randomly switch gears and do a rock album (Rebirth)? I can't really think of any. Simply an amazing musician.

hah eligible in 2024, by that time his career will be long gone, hell he's just a fad and nothing more.

I've noticed that whenever anyone uses the term "hater," they are 99.9% of the time pre-pubescent girls. (The rest are teenage girls).

Posted by Keebord on Thursday, 06.18.09 @ 18:44pm


I totally agree, Keebord. For my part, it's not hating, but "irrelevent" or "insignificant"...which the majority of these more recent artists will become, I'm afraid. We've all been through it, some artists who I raved about decades ago I look back on now and think "I musta been outa my skull...!!!"

Posted by Gitarzan on Thursday, 06.18.09 @ 18:54pm


i think that lil wayne should go in it,because he is a good rapper n he just doesn't do rap he does rock also.

he's also a STUD

Posted by griffin on Monday, 09.21.09 @ 13:51pm


I THINK THAT HE SHOULD BE IN THE HALL OF FAME HE KNOWS HOW TO SPIT RHYMES AND PLAY GUITAR AND ITS BAD ASS FOR A BLACK RAPPER!

"he just doesn't do rap he does rock also." - griffin

what a compelling argument! He does rock so he should be in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. Man that is DEEP

Posted by Keebord on Monday, 09.21.09 @ 15:50pm


To be honest, he really does not bring anything to the table..in fact, he's actually trying to do a rock album, and he could really just bring rock to a new low based on some of the songs released from it...auto-tune + rock guitars?

Posted by maplejet on Friday, 09.25.09 @ 00:11am


When I was in High School in the early 00's Lil Wayne (and the whole Cash Money crew) were basically, along with No Limit, the jokes of the Hip-Hop world. Now 2007, 2008, 2009 roll around and all I hear is RS, Pitchfork, Allmusic, etc. WORSHIPPING Lil Wayne. Am I missing something here? When did his "music" become "legit"? From what I here it's the same old crap that's of no value, sonically or lyrically. Empty, empty stuff. And I'm not a person who thinks Rap shouldn't be included in the Hall. I love it. But Wayne, T-Pain, Young Jeezy, Soulja Boy, etc. barely qualifies as music, let alone GOOD music.

Posted by LIL JON on Sunday, 03.14.10 @ 17:24pm


yes! why shouldnt he be? he has influenced man artists and also been influenced by rock and roll. just because you dont like his music doesnt mean he shouuldnt be inducted

Posted by dan williams on Wednesday, 03.17.10 @ 08:24am


If you dont like hiz music then you do vote NO. I voted No. Right now only place Weezy belongs iz in jail. And he could use sum voice lessons (imo), sorry.

Posted by Telarock on Wednesday, 03.17.10 @ 16:41pm


If any rapper should be inducted it would be Biggie Smalls, if he was still around.

Not him, he's a lame excuse for a rapper. Unless he changes his lyrics up and starts making sense of what he's saying.

And maybe consider getting that bullet removed from his neck, that's pretty gross if you ask me.

Some here may find this interesting... it's an attempt to match musical preference with intelligence (as measures with SAT score)

Hilarious! Thanks for the link Darrin!

just because you do rock music does mean u shud put into the hall of fame. and to my knowledge the rebirth wasnt even that successful critically or comercially. yea he tried to mix the two generes that doesnt mean it was good. he had mediocore guitar riffs there was nothing speacial

Posted by critic on Friday, 08.26.11 @ 09:48am


Every last one of you that said No is Tone Deaf! He has done More for the hip hop Rap culture than Anybody! I bet hardly any of you has sit down and Really listened to his music.

False propaganda is bliss eh Tahvo?

Vanessa, have you ever heard of a person called Tupac?

Posted by GFW on Monday, 10.17.11 @ 11:24am


Good example, GFW.

Public Enemy? A Tribe Called Quest? De La Soul?

Hell, even LL Cool J has done more for hip-hop than Lil Wayne.

Posted by Mike on Monday, 10.17.11 @ 12:38pm


Damn, even using modern rappers Kanye, Jay and eminem have all done more and made much better music.

Posted by GFW on Monday, 10.17.11 @ 14:11pm


There needs to be more lyrasists like eminem, Dr. Dre, jay z,tupac, bigge, etc.. and less lil waynes

Posted by suburban cracker on Thursday, 12.8.11 @ 16:47pm


i say yes because lil wayne deserves good stuff hes really good looking and i love him so much that im sending a letter to get him in the rock n roll hall of fame <3 i love you

Posted by Nydia on Thursday, 02.2.12 @ 20:00pm


Lil Wayne is one of the best how many people do you know that has released Successful Music in Not only rap But POP,ROCK,R&B & REGGAE he is arguably one of the best of all time his past two albums have sold over or close to 1 million units within there 1st week out (The Carter3,The Carter4) and he is always evolving as a musician he is a global super star people all over the world Sings/Raps his music and he also is one of the most hard working artist in music no matter the genre He is not afraid to branch out n do different things with music AND IT WORKS OUT for him look at his numbers of music Sold, downloaded also the number of songs he is featured on ranging from Madona,Cold Play,enrique iglesias,Jay z all the way down to you name them LIL WAYNE SHOULD BE IN THE R.H.O.F(rock & roll hall of fame) he deserves and has earnerd a spot among the greats of music

Posted by Frank.N.Britt.Jr on Saturday, 05.5.12 @ 11:17am


To all of you who think Lil Wayne is a rapper who needs to be worshiped, stop it already! When this guy raps, it sounds like he has a cold and the songs aren't even written by him. Plus, his music is nothing groundbreaking or new, it's all about how cool he thinks he is or how meny cars he owns.

Rappers like Biggie Smalls and 2Pac are way better.

So quit thinking that Lil Wayne is an influenal rapper or that he'll get in to the Hall.

Posted by Andrew on Friday, 11.29.13 @ 23:22pm



Sorry to upset your throughts, Evangelist, but rap will never be exterminated, it will always be there along with the culture.

While I do agree with you on how today's rap is more about sex and partying, I reconmmend that you take a listen to "Changes" by 2Pac or "The Message" by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five in order to understand that rap isn't all about boasting or sex.

Posted by Andrew on Sunday, 12.1.13 @ 20:01pm


Hell no... Dude is one of the lamest MC's ever to last more than 10 years... All his music sounds the same... Listen to Alternative or Political Hip-Hop instead of this trash.

Posted by Michael on Monday, 05.12.14 @ 15:58pm


Tha Carter III. That proves Lil Wayne's talent. I think he will get into the hall, probably not immediately when he is eligible but eventually.
