Incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne has shown his raps are not going anywhere by performing a verse off Drake's "Light Up" track from Rikers Island.
Hitting up UStream last night (June 8), Drake revealed Wayne's verse.
Even behind bars, Lil Wayne stays on his grind. Weezy drops a freestyle over Drake's Jay-Z assisted track "Light Up" from Thank Me Later. The verse was recorded during one of Wayne's phone calls from prison and premiered during Drake's Ustream session on Tuesday night. Drizzy calls it "one of the most incredible Lil Wayne verses [he's] ever heard." (Rap-Up)
With over a minute of freestyle, Wayne takes the time to reflect on his situation and desires he has.
"Hate is temporary, love is necessary...First off, I don't need you second guessing me," Wayne raps, "Come to my cell, read fan mail/Wish I was in Amsterdam drinking Amstel/Thinking about all of that p*ssy I can't smell -- I know you meant well because you know d*mn well that I still got you open, open like a clam shell/Still fly on my hawk sh*t, my conversations stink because I talk sh*t..." ("Light Up" Freestyle)
Recently, Drake revealed that Wayne had a verse for his Thank Me Later track.
Drake talks about the difference between creating his So Far Gone mixtape and his Thank Me Later album (which drops on June 15th) in the video above. He also talks about the collaborations on the album, his three favorite people to work with in the studio, and more. Drizzy also said: "Lil Wayne recorded one of his greatest verses ever over the phone for my track with Jay-Z -- Light Up." (Lil Wayne HQ)
The rapper is also going to be linking with Wayne for a collaboration album in the future.
"I went up to Rikers, and me and Wayne agreed that there will be a Lil Wayne/ Drake album," Drake told DJ Envy on MTV's "Sucker Free." " ... There's some things I'm excited for in my life -- I'm excited to go perform certain places -- but [this project] will probably be one of the most exciting things in my life, because we make music on a different level. It's just so fun, so comfortable. A whole album? To think about all the things we can do, especially if we're gonna do 15 songs. Me and him don't like to do 12, 13 [songs]. We want to do 15, 16. Yeah, Lil Wayne and Drake album." (MTV)
