When you’re hip-hop’s most active touring act and prolific song maker, sometimes your agendas don’t mesh. Lil Wayne’s been all around the world on his I Am Music tour and Young Money Presents: The America’s Most Wanted Music Festival, but he says it’s too difficult to record while you’re on the road. He has a studio on the bus, but you can’t record when the bus is rolling. But now, with touring over and Wayne settled back into his routine of living in the studio, he had time to craft No Ceilings — No Ceilings because the sky is the limit.
“I don’t like to do real songs on there, ’cause the producers be wanting their money,” he told DJ Scoob Doo about beat jacking. “So I just do shit that’s already out. It’s easier. Niggas be like, ‘You killed that nigga on his own song.’ That’s not the intentions. No, I did not kill nobody on their song. I like the song. That’s why I liked it. I didn’t kill them. I ain’t even rapping like them. I killed their song though.”
A leak of the mixtape popped up early last week, but Weezy F Baby wants everyone to know that it wasn’t the official version — he recorded more records, such as “Single,” the mixtape title track and a unofficial remix to Beyoncé’s “Sweet Dreams,” for the proper version.
“I got great producers and great friends that gave me great beats,” Wayne said. “I went in and did four or five new songs.”
“I’m gonna scare the shit out everybody in the muthafuckin’ rap game,” Wayne told us with a grin.
Wayne and Scoob Doo will be releasing “The Nino Brown Story 2″ DVD later this year.
