Crooked I Credits Lil Wayne's Impact on Mainstream Lyricism

Hah, this is interesting:

Speaking with HipHopDX about Lil Wayne's impact on mainstream Hip Hop, Crooked I detailed his respect for the Young Money rapper lyricism.

Explaining his take on Wayne’s effect on young Hip Hop listeners throughout his commercial success, Crooked I spoke about Tha Carter emcee’s penchant for “witty” one-liners.  

“I think Wayne is one of the artists who really opened that gateway, there was a time where we weren’t getting anything in the mainstream,” Crooked I said in a clip that debuted as a part of the DX Daily today (September 30). “The underground always has flourished. You got so many layers of the game: you got the underground, you got the almost-famous, you got the famous, you got the super famous. So, in the super famous realm I don’t think that those fans were getting any lyricism. I think Wayne, I credit and salute him because when he was hopping on all those joints, he had some memorable one-liners that were witty, catchy, and clever at the same time. It made people start thinking, young people. I remember talking to’em at the barbershop, they’re like, ‘Yo, he is the best rapper alive.’ That was the best that they had heard.”
