Lil Wayne The target of a diss track by 50 Cent earlier this summer, Lil Wayne has been touted in recent weeks as the most talented lyricist in rap today. Still, 50 Cent says the rapper's ubiquity on other artists' songs doesn't make up for his lack of stand-alone success. "He hasn't actually had hit records," said 50 Cent. "He can bring a remix to life. Being featured on someone else's record, he sounds good. But where is his record? He doesn't have a hit of his own." He continued: "If all I had to do was focus on one verse, I'd be on fire! There's a difference between good rappers and good songwriters."
