From Murdoch to the CIA to … Weezey F Baby?

Lil Wayne Baby NYer

Sasha Frere-Jones has done something that some would call impossible, that others would claim was inevitable. A full length profile piece on Lil Wayne, aka. Dwayne Carter, aka Weezey F. Baby in The New Yorker. A sign of the times?

The year is only half over, but Frere-Jones literally says, “But [Wayne] is indisputably the rapper of the year.”

My question is this: Does coverage from the NY’er, along with recent positive coverage in the NYTimes, signal the start of The White Critical Mass’ ❤ Wayne, and, by connection, the end of Lil Wayne’s time making what will be called good by the bloggerati? And then, of course, is either side really ever right?
