It depends how you look at it. Louis Armstrong was a bigger star for his time period than Lil Wayne and really most other stars. It is my understanding that he was comparable to the Beatles and Elvis for his time period. The music business just wasn't as big back then. I would also think that Armstrong is a lot more influential to actual music.
Personally, I just don't like Lil Wayne, and I hardly consider him a musician. More like a bad lyricist.
