The war of words between Pusha T and the Cash Money/Young Money team may be ongoing, however, Lil Wayne has revealed G.O.O.D. Music's Kanye West is on his upcoming I Am Not A Human Being II album.
According to Weezy F. Baby, Mr. West plays a big part on the forthcoming project.
"Production on the album -- I got people like Juicy J, Cool & Dre, David Banner on down to uh -- I mean it's so many, shoot," the YMCMB boss told MTV News Thursday in Las Vegas. The "No Worries" rapper took a moment to remember all the hitmakers who will contribute to his upcoming long player before rattling off names like Streerunner and finally 'Ye. "Yeah he got some music on there," Wayne confirmed. "It's crazy, actually I don't want to give too much up but he's got a big hand in the album, you'll see." (MTV)
Coincidentally, Pusha T recently credited Wayne's Cash Money boss Birdman for fueling his contribution to Kanye West's "New God Flow" hit.
"New God Flow" was about, in my view, something I read in a Birdman interview that I didn't like. He said something like "G.O.O.D. Music isn't nothing" and it had nothing to do with Wayne or Drake per se. That was Birdman saying whatever he wanted to say and that was the basis of where all of my lines came from. Everybody else was on their love of Hip-Hop s**t." (Hip Hop Wired)
Over the summer, Pusha defended his decision not to lash back after Wayne dissed him on "Goulish."
"I was surprised actually at the whole -- anybody, but Wayne specifically, answering 'Exodus.' I've never seen one record that didn't say any names cause so much of a firestorm," Pusha told radio host Funkmaster Flex. "['Goulish?'] It was horrible. It was trash. It wasn't good -- I didn't like [the production] either. Let me say this. I didn't like it for that type of record. I didn't feel like, in all honesty, I haven't said anything about it because I didn't think it was good enough to respond to." (Hot 97)
If all goes accordingly, Weezy's new album will hit store shelves this December.
Well, that didn't take long. Just days after a November date was announced, Lil Wayne's I Am Not a Human Being II already has a new release date. The album, previously due November 13, is now scheduled to arrive just in time for the holidays on December 11, Rap-Up.com has learned. Weezy is no stranger to setbacks. His album Tha Carter IV was pushed back numerous times before it finally dropped in August 2011. The sequel to 2010's I Am Not a Human Being features the singles "My Homies Still" with Big Sean and the Detail-assisted "No Worries." (Rap-Up)
