“Lil Wayne showed me to never give up at what you do best and/or what you want to do. Be you and never let someone tell you different, if it feels right it’s not wrong. He lyrically painted a picture that was captivating and created a sense of determination thru his music. Work is hard sometimes but remember the next man is out there working hard to get your spot. When you never stop working, the hard part goes away!” – @yrntakeoff #ThaCarterIIIAnniversary

“Tha Carter III selling a million first week set the bar for rappers that looked like me. It showed me what a real underground following can do. He built his fans one by one and made the whole world respect him. First rapper of our generation to make pop money without going pop.” – @yg #ThaCarterIIIAnniversary

“Tha Carter III definitely influenced me musically, because anything Wayne did was fire! At that point he had some of the hottest records out, so I would always write my own version to his songs. ‘A Milli’ was one of the first joints I made a remix to as a kid.” – @youngma #ThaCarterIIIAnniversary
