By Chris Swails

Now that Wayne is officially state property of Rikers Island, I felt the need to give a quick recap of his career highlights.

Group album, Guerilla Warfare (1999): Platinum
Debut album, The Block is Hot (1999): Double Platinum
Sophomore album, Lights Out (2000): Gold
Post-Hot Boys era, 500 Degreez (2002): Gold
The Carter (2004): Platinum
The Carter II (2005): Double Platinum
Duo with Birdman, Like Father Like Son (2006): Gold
The Carter III (2008): Triple Platinum
Group album, We are YM (2009): approx. 300,000
Rock album, The Rebirth (2010): approx. 360,000

To simply list all of Wayne’s albums does his career no justice, all the true Weezy fans know that he made his name off of mixtapes. Here are a few of his best:

The Squad Up series SQ1-7: Early 2000’s

The Dedication series 1-3: 2005, 2006, 2008

The Drought Series: Late 2000’s

No Ceilings: 2009
