“The first thing I said was this kid’s a superstar,” said Wayne of Drake. “I don’t think you can remember, but I did some interviews back then when they were asking me about him and I said he’s better than me. I can’t sing. I can make a song, but this kid has the actual R&B presence. Then he’s one of the dopest lyricists. That right there, he has a welcoming appearance.”
Not to be forgot is Nicki Minaj, who had a successful year as well with the release of her debut album, Pink Friday. “I can’t front, I just thought she was going to be the new female emcee that none of these other female emcees can touch,” bragged Weezy. “But now, she’s blossomed into a megastar with this new attitude and this style. Now when I talk to her, I just tell her, ‘Do what you do, baby.’ I used to be able to go into the studio and say, ‘Nah, don’t say that, don’t say that.’ You know, ‘That was better.’ Now, do what you do, baby. I don’t have a clue about what you’re doing right now, but it’s working, do it.”
Lil Wayne’s “6 Foot 7 Foot” video makes its officially debut on tonight at 7:54 PM EST on MTV.
