"Lil Wayne just proved that he's on the all-time list. Haven't heard an album like this in YEARS. #FWA," another enthused.

"Lil Wayne always seems to make every other rapper irrelevant whenever he drops something but this time...ITS THE TRUTH," yet another offered.

The collective thumbs-up will no doubt come as music to the rapper's ears. In recent months, he's seen a fair amount of trouble, including a swatting prank at his Miami Beach home in March and an April incident in Georgia during which his tour bus was shot up.
