On September 27, 1982 the world was graced with Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. who would later be known as Lil Wayne. The original Hot Boy will go down as one of the greatest rappers of all time for his lyricism, charisma and entrepreneurial spirit with YMCMB. Thanks to Lil Wayne not only do we have a legacy of Dedication and Da Drought mixtapes and Tha Carter albums, but he shared his platform to nurture the careers of Drake and Nicki Minaj. We wouldn’t even have the one and only Kendrick Lamar if he wasn’t inspired by Weezy F. Baby. To celebrate the man, they myth, the legend, we curated a playlist called Tunechi Treasures. There are so many cuts that aren’t on traditional streaming platforms, but we think this gets the point across.
Stream Tunechi Treasures now on Spotify.
