…and he ain’t even dead.

There’s a Lil Wayne documentary currently wrapping up that is set to premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. The Carter, is filmmaker Adam Bhala Lough’s chronicle of a day in the life of Weezy. It’s being billed by the Sundance Festival’s PR department as “an in-depth look at the artist… proclaimed by many as the ‘greatest rapper alive.” The film will feature the usual one-on-one interviews and commentary by Dwayne’s closest friends.

Cool, I guess. Weezy’s fine by me, but he never struck me as the most interesting rapper to shoot a whole film on. I don’t like to offer idle criticism either, so I made a top 3 list of my own “must-see rapper docs.”

1. Sean Price - All I had to see was this, to know I need to see more.

2. Joe Budden - We already get Joe Budden TV, so this isn’t required… but I’d watch it. Plus, give us more footage like this, and you have a winner.

3. Jim Jones- He’s drawing out a plan to be the next big thing, Dame Dash follows him around, and he’s entertaining as hell. Who in the Dipset isn’t (wasn’t…?)?

I’m a little late with this, but if you haven’t seen it, it’s pretty dope. Weezy is apparently going to be a guest blogger for ESPN.com. In his first installment, he writes about the teams he likes and the NFL. I’m not sure how I feel about him droppin’ Ben Roethlisberger though.

T-Wayne played football as a kid and I bet you can’t guess which position he played.

I grew up playing football. Believe it or not, I was a fullback. When I was nine, ten, eleven, I was a great blocker. I knew how to block real good and the other kids didn’t.
