So I stopped writing now I'm like lightning

from Lil Wayne – Dr. Carter Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Wayne used to write his rhymes down but since recording “10,000 Bars” he has switched to freestyling in the studio, which is faster

UPDATE: He switched back post-prison (he wrote so much in there! Shame to waste it..)
