Last month, Lopez turned heads after naming Wayne the greatest rapper out right now.
"I was working out yesterday and I was listening to Lil Wayneand I was just like, 'Wow. He really says some sh*t," Lopez explained. "But I was just listening to what he was saying and I really enjoyed it. He might be one of the best out there right now. He might be the best. He's really good...I love [Nicki Minaj]. I haven't heard the whole [Pink Friday] album, but I've heard her stuff that's been on the radio and stuff like that. I really enjoy it." (Hot 97)
West Coast producer Dr. Dre called Wayne one of his favorites last fall.
"It's aight," Dre said about the state of hip-hop. "There are a lot of artists that I like, I love Wayne, I love Drake, I love the new artist J. Cole. There's some new brothers coming out on my record, Slim the Mobster, he's out of South Central. I think it could be better and hopefully I can do my part to assist in that." (Rap-Up)
In addition to J. Lo, Wayne is currently working on multiple projects including records with T-Pain, Baby and Drake.
"I've had ideas to do an album with T-Pain. We've got the T-Wayne situation going, so Drake's a very respectable dude. He's like, 'I don't want to disrespect none of those situations, so I'm just going to wait 'til you have a real good moment to focus on you and I doing an album.' ... And then you know my obligations to the Like Father, Like Son albums with [Birdman aka] Stunna. It's like no disrespect to those. I don't want to clash with nothing." (MTV)
