According to Lil Wayne, God is a man. Such an outdated viewpoint. Ok, so the Bible says that God was the one who impregnated the Virgin Mary, big deal. It doesn't say that God had a penis, just that God put a baby in Mary.
The New Testament refers to God as "Father," but also makes many maternal references to God. So when Lil Wayne says "God took His time when He made me," it sounds correct because that's what is implied when God is spoken of.
But our women are the ones who gives birth. Our women are the caretakers. Our women are the superior gender. God is a woman, and if you disagree you're probably a man. And if you don't even believe in God then just remember that you are your own God.
"Took His Time"
Tha Carter V
Momma said God took his time when he made me
After what seemed like an eternity, Lil Wayne was finally legally allowed to release his album Tha Carter V. It's been a long time coming for himself and his patient fans. And if his God had anything to do with this album, then patience was the key.
This song feels like it encapsulates everything that Wayne has gone through while awaiting his trail with Birdman to end. All the beef with Cash Money Records is over, and he's looking past it. Not just because he's over it, but because he feels a sense dominance after the dust settled.
In broad day like "let's play," lil' kids playin' jump rope
Damn, it really feels like Wayne is talking specifically about Birdman on this track. With their trial and beef out there for the whole world to see, Wayne winning the legal case that netted him well over $10 million was just the beginning. The battle was over, but Wayne just had to flaunt a little bit.
Wayne left Birdman's body out there for the whole world to see. People started to piece the puzzle together and realize that Birdman had been doing shady deals with young artists his entire career. Wayne refers to the other artists on Cash Money Records as "the unknowns." A little jab at their top artist, Young Thug.
I been feelin' like Galactus
Galactus is a super villain from Marvel Comics who has powers that are similar to those of a God. And similar to how Galactus has unlimited abilities and powers in his world, Wayne feels the same way with this track.
People may be wondering or asking to themselves if Wayne still had it. If after all these years between albums, he could still come with the bars we could always expect from him. If he still had the fire that drove him to be one of the most successful and decorated rappers of a generation.
His sound still transcends music nearly 20 years after his first album, and this track is a look into where his mind has been all these years. If you have been a Lil Wayne fan since the beginning, you can feel the power he displays on this song.
It not only lets you know where he's been, but it allows you remember what it feels like when he used to leave his heart and soul out on each and every verse and hook. If time has taught us anything about Lil Wayne, it's that he doesn't adhere to the same time frame that most do.
He has been up and down throughout the years, but by taking his time with "Took His Time" he allowed the world to not only hear his art, but feel it once again.
