lil wayne is not a good hip hop artist by any means. Ok, he has a few "catchy" songs, but his lyrics are complete nonsense, and have little to know true meaning. He's completely commercial and too mainstream.
If you want real hip hop, listen to the Wu, Cormega, Canibus or Noreaga, to name a few.
Any of these rappers would eat lil waynes food anyday.
That onion video was jokes though.
