Here’s a pretty interesting collaboration: T-Pain with Lily Allen and Wiz Khalifa. Check out the video for “5 O’Clock” and download.
Mac Miller got on the remix for one of the most popular pop songs at the moment. Christina Aguilera also adds some vocals towards the end of the track.
Remember that track on ‘Tha Carter IV’? Where Weezy goes “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.”? Well Weezy covered Vibe for the October/November issue. There is a few things they talk about, like Drake as competition. WEEZY A BEAST.
VIBE: You say competition is for the “old guys,” but it sounds like you’re going at Jay-Z with that line, “I got your baby money/Kidnap your bitch, get that how-much-you-love-your-lady money.” Are we looking at it the wrong way?
LIL WAYNE: I know for a fact, music is about perception. You can’t do anything but perceive what you hear. If I know that for a fact, I can never be upset about someone’s reaction to it. I’m not gonna say I don’t know what will happen before I say it [on record]. I do know what will happen. I am aware of it. It is what it is.
VIBE: You mentioned how humbled you were at the success of “She Will.” Drake, who wrote and performs the song’s chorus, has now become a platinum star in his own right. Do you look at the guy and say, “Wow, I helped create a monster, I have to stay on my toes”?
LIL WAYNE: I don’t look at it like that. Drake is my artist. If he wasn’t my artist, then yeah maybe. But that’s my artist. He’s not [just] a friend. We’re more than friends. It’s business. It would be impossible for it to be a competition. I mean, I’m the guy’s boss.
