No Ceilings 2 was always going to be stacked up to the first one. The classic 2009 tape is often regarded as Lil Wayne's last great project, with each album and mixtape since falling below the bar he set with his classic run of releases in the late '00s.
One thing that is noticeable right off the bat is how much Lil Wayne used Drake and Future instrumentals for this second rendition of No Ceilings. What A Time To Be Alive was nice, especially on the production tip, but it feels a little lopsided to have that many of the duo's collaborative works used for instrumentals.
In the coming galleries, we compare the production, lyrics and flow with the two No Ceilings releases. Can you guess the outcome? Head to the last slide to cast your vote.
