    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 Suffix episode is out. This is the first project that is starting to sound like the weezy we'd later see on drought 3. Excited to start the dedication series off next week.

    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.
