Lil Wayne Says Supports Drake And Aaliyah Project
It turns out that not everyone is ishtting on Drake’s super-stan collabo steez that’s been the talk of the music industry since the YMCMB rapper announced his plans to co-produce a “new” Aaliyah album.
Young Money bossman Lil Wayne says he supports his artists’ Aaliyah ambitions and thinks the album will be “awesome.”
via NY Daily News:
Lil Wayne thinks the late Aaliyah’s music is better than a lot of music out today — and he’s confident that Drake’s plan to produce unreleased Aaliyah songs will be an “awesome collaboration.”
Missy Elliott and Timbaland, who produced most of Aaliyah’s music, are not involved, and DMX, who co-starred with Aaliyah in the movie “Romeo Must Die” and recorded a song with her, has been critical of the project.
Lil Wayne said he hasn’t heard any negative feedback, and added when he first heard that his Young Money protégé was a part of the project, his first thought was: “Good move.”
“Everybody knows what Aaliyah did and done for music and culture, period, and it’s always good to do that, for not only for people like that, just for her fans — you know what I mean?” he said in a recent interview. “Drake’s a very thoughtful person. Everyone knows that. It’s an awesome collaboration. Her music is still awesome. It’s still better than a lot of music out right now,” he said.
He also had this to say in regards to staying on top of his game in his own music:
“I’ve said everything in every situation in every way, so it’s almost interesting to go into the studio and find new things to talk about and new ways to talk about them and hear it back and say, ‘Wow, you figured it out again,”’ he said.
Yeah, ok. We just hope Wayne didn’t also encourage that life-sized Aaliyah tattoo that Drizzy has on his back. SMH.
Do you agree with Weezy that Aaliyah’s music is better than a lot of the other female artists out right now?
