Happy Waynesgiving, y'all. On Thursday, Nov. 26—if all goes according to plan, which, on Planet Weezy, you never know—we're set to receive the gift of No Ceilings 2, a sequel to the Halloween 2009 mixtape that easily stands as one of Lil Wayne's best.
After tapping a handful of sensible, of-the-moment beats for the fiery Sorry 4 the Wait 2 back in January, we'd love to hear Weezy spice things up with these 13 deep cuts and offbeat choices.
Opening No Ceilings 2 with The Pinkprint’s lead-in would be a perfect tribute to Nicki. While the beat might be a surprising choice, it’s the perfect habitat for Wayne to open up and talk about his trials and tribulations du jour.
Why let the first Janet album in seven years go to waste? Especially when this track already sounds like something that could show up on a Wayne record in this first place...
Almost impossible to imagine how spectacular this combo would be. The thorny beat and the socially conscious tone set by K-Dot would be a challenge we’re sure the invigorated 2015 Wayne could tackle.
Wayne could do his own version of his buddy Future's entire Dirty Sprite 2 album and we’d listen. But if we’ve gotta choose one, we’re skipping obvious picks like “Thought It Was a Drought,” “Freak Hoe,” “I Serve the Base” and “Where Ya At" (which looks like it'll show up anyway) to suggest he go in on the dark, cathedral-ready “Slave Master.”
The 20th anniversary of Jagged Little Pill came over the summer, but the festivities haven’t quit. With Alanis parodying “Ironic” on talk shows and performing “You Oughta Know” with Demi Lovato on the AMAs, we're dreaming of Weezy turning to Jagged for one of No Ceilings 2’s mandatory nostalgia cuts.
Wayne’s rapped on too many Hov tracks to count; he oughta keep it going with this tape. While Magna Carta Holy Grail is a couple years old, the two-act old-school-meets-weirdo-new-school “Picasso Baby” is the type of beat made for Wayne to devour.
