MUSIC: Lil Wayne - Prom Queen

Last year the self-proclaimed "best rapper alive" slowed down on the rapping, and topped the charts the world over with his crazy vocoder space smash Lollipop. And this year? The guitars came out.

Wayne's dropping a new "rock" LP, Rebirth in April, and this is the first single. it does indeed have guitars on it - perhaps more than you mighty expect. There are still traces of the autotune experiment, but now we have a lot of flange and distortion mashing Wayne's wails.

I am shocked to say that it is Not Dreadful.

Really!

In fact, I have to say, I love it. It's awesome. Listen many times for full effect.

The first line is totally ace: "I loved your fancy underwear!"

Check it out.
