Lil Wayne’s Producers Speak On Rapper’s Rock Album

In a recent interview with Billboard, the producers behind Lil Wayne’s first single, “Prom Queen,” revealed some details on the surprise, upcoming rock album

The Miami-based production team, who consists of Infamous and Drew Correa, shared some insight on the direction of Weezy’s new project, Rebirth. “There were rumors Wayne was working on a rock album, but I assumed it was just 808 drums with guitars on it,” Infamous told Billboard. “But, that night when we worked on the track, he [Wayne] said he wanted lots of drums, bass and guitars. Drew started to add organs, and he [Wayne] said no. That’s when I realized it was actually going to be a real rock album.”

The beat making duo – who also produced “Mr. Carter,” the Weezy/Jay-Z collabo off Tha Carter III – have three tracks placed on Rebirth. And it’s no surprise that they fully support Weezy in his journey into uncharted territory. “You gotta give him credit – he’s done everything he can with hip-hop and has proven himself,” Infamous said. “Now he’s about to prove himself as a rocker and we’re excited to be a part of it.”

As XXLmag.com previously reported, Rebirth is slated for an April 7th release. – Elan Mancini

      ACTUALLY ROCK WAS INVENTED BY BLACK ARTIST (CHUCK BERRY, LITTLE RICHARD, ETC) ROCK IS A BLACK ARTFORM POPULARIZED OBVIOUSLY BY WHITE ARTIST (THE STONES, ELVIS, BEATLES, ETC) SO I.A.B.O YOUR STATEMENT MAKES NO SENSE

    Good I luv it! Go fukk up Rock and Roll with that autotune B.S and leave Hip Hop alone! I hope Lil Wayne makes a billion bucks thru Rock&Roll so all of the dudes “hustling” hip hop will go and exploit, commercialize and over all fukk up Rock & Roll like they’ve been doing to hip hop.

    Then maybe real hip hop like Bun B, Ice Cube, Scarface, Nas, Clipse, Ghostface, and Juvenile will get the shine they deserve and continue to make the music they want to make without having to worry about these B.S ringtone rappers flooding the airwaves.

    Hey IABO Why dont yall seem to remember that Barack is Half White? Or let me guess that doesnt matter right? So your President is Black by Jezzy is Wrong it should be my president is Mixed or My President is Half White Half Black. No to Weezy i personally like Hip Hop and Rock Together it can make some instering music who cares what your race is when it comes to music! Good Music Is Good Music Period!!! As long as its original and sounds good and makes sense then it is good Music.

    Peace

  • TEZZY

    I think its cool he trying something different BUT i work at a music store where we listen to punk rock and that emo shit which is what this would be classified as and NO this shit aint hitting i mean with kanye west when his shit came out i knew it woild hit on cause its on some alternative shit and his shit could easily blend in with that type of crowd everybody say kanye got a r&b album but really its an alternative album only the dudes that listen to other types of music gonna know what im talking about but if you just listen to rap you gonna be like wtf is he talking about lol lil wayne just need to do some more research on the shit and he’ll be good

  • TEZZY

    Wait that shit just said his production team which means its just gonna be some beatmakers making that rock shit naw he really need to scrape this one i’ve noticed that this emo crowd pays alot of attention to the musical aspect of it and then can tell when its some studio beatmaking shit
