Lil Wayne returns to music
Rapper Lil Wayne may have sworn off music in order to pursue his skateboarding career, but it seems old habits die hard. MTV News reports Wayne's newest album, "I Am Not a Human Being II," is set to drop on December 11 and the rapper had some help from producer and artist Kanye West among other famous friends.
Wayne opened up about the collaboration with West and other musicians, but was discreet about how big of a role West has had on the CD.
"Production on the album - I got people like Juicy J, Cool & Dre, David Banner on down to uh... Streetrunner, 'Ye...I mean it's so many, shoot," Wayne told the news source, though he played down exactly what West has done. "Yeah, he got some music on there. Actually, I don't want to give too much up but he's got a big hand in the album, you'll see."
AllHipHop.com reports some fans might be more surprised to learn about Wayne's close relationship with Dr. Dre. In the same interview with MTV, Wayne discussed his long friendship and working partnership with Dre.
"I've always worked with Dre. I'm not sure if you guys know how Dre works, Dre always send you a song, so I done probably did like 90 songs for Dre," Wayne told the news source. "You just never know which one he's gonna put out."
Wayne believes his fans will really enjoy the latest LP, which is the follow up to 2010's "Human Being." The rapper said this CD is more inspired and he took his time to craft the songs, rather than rush them like he's done in the past.
"I paid attention to everything I did," Wayne told MTV. "You're getting the quality of all my albums: Tha Carter IV, Tha Carter III, the same with this I Am Not A Human Being II. Hope you like it."
Do you think Wayne's new album will be good? Are you surprised he's working with West again?
