    My friend and I took a deepdive into this mixtape and will be reviewing every Wayne tape going forward but as this was seemingly Wayne's first solo mixtape it's a bit lackluster imo. The 2 songs I really felt were Cops is Watching and Da Drought. Everything else was subpar to me.



    Here's a bonus interview I found with Wayne right before or just after Da Drought 1 dropped.

    Our pod for dedication 1 just dropped.



    Honestly with there being a young money mixtape of this in nodj with better beats in some cases this was kinda a let down. Next week we will be having a special Carter 1 retrospective.

    We just dropped our Episode on Lil Weezy Ana vol 1 and it was much better than I expected. Can't judge a mixtape off a wack cover.

    Episode 9 is out where we covered W Carter Collection vol 1.

    Ain't got time and Boombap were my favorite songs. A lot of the songs that were cut from Carter 2 appear on this tape.
