Details Release Date: Aug 29, 2011; Lead Performance: Lil Wayne; Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap; Production: Cash Money

Like his cluster of guest appearances and the lone mixtape he's dropped since his release from prison last winter, Wayne's latest album, Tha Carter IV, is a collection of hits and misses. Cuts like the sinful ''She Will'' and pensive ''Nightmares of the Bottom'' are the studs among dull songs declaring wealth and swag (''MegaMan,'' ''Blunt Blowin''). Unfortunately, C-4 doesn't quite deliver the explosion it should have been capable of. B
