Surprisingly, some of the best articles I have read were very casually written. A fitting description for the article “Lil Wayne I Am Not a Human Being II” by zcamp. It is loose in style and flows easily, reflecting that of a conversation between friends. The author writes confidently about the number of phallic metaphors Wayne uses in his songs, noting that he sets the world record, and makes a joke of his own renaming one of the songs as “Penis Colada”. Of course, even in a conversational tone, the author shows a great deal of effort in researching not only the number of songs contributing to Wayne’s world record, but also taking the reader through a brief history and progression of the artist.

During the creation of Electric Ladyland, Hendrix’s manager, Chas Chandler, severed ties with the group. He felt that Hendrix’s perfectionism and the chaotic way he worked and recorded was not to his taste. Needless to say, this was what most fans prized Hendrix’s work for. This gave Hendrix endless amounts of creative freedom and more room to experiment with new combinations of musicians and instruments. Chandler’s departure from the group was perhaps one of the best things to happen for Hendrix. Electric Ladyland became one of the best rock albums of the era featuring some of Hendrix’s best works and “found him taking his funk and psychedelic sounds to the absolute limit” as Cub Koda explains. He released the album, as producer and director, in October of 1968 and by mid-November the same year, it reached the number 1 spot in the U.S., where it stayed for 2 weeks. His perfectionism and innovation in the recording studio, along with his God-like guitar skills, made him a legend in the industry. Though his previous albums with the Experience got him known and loved in both the U.S and the U.K., they were nowhere near as successful, innovative or captivating. It was, arguably, with this album that he truly embedded his musical footprint on the world, and stays in the hearts of millions today and likely for many years to come. With this album, Hendrix showed the world what could be accomplished with modern technology and recording studios. He opened the world of rock and roll to a new sound and branched the gap between funk and rock, and earning his much-deserved reputation as one of the most influential electric guitarists in rock history. His great success with the album led to his own recording studio called Electric Lady, where “he worked with different performers to try out new songs and sounds”.
