Lil Wayne Speaks On Drake's "Take Care," Says He's "On Another Planet"

Drizzy's Young Money boss shares his opinion on what he's heard from his sophomore LP.

Drake is gearing up for the release of his sophomore album Take Care, releasing November 15th, but he's already let his Young Money boss Lil Wayne hear a few cuts.

Speaking with MTV News, Weezy said that while he hasn't listened to the whole album, he was impressed by what he heard. "I actually haven't got a chance to listen to all of it, but I heard a few songs," he said. "I can tell, you know, I don't know nothing else out there that can touch it, including my stuff. That kid is on another planet."

He also praised Drizzy's ability to rap as if he were having a conversation, be it on a hit song or an album cut. "To me, I call him a conversational artist, meaning he can make a rap or single or hit verse, hit song, out of a regular conversation that you would love to have with any woman or anybody. I think that is his expertise. The songs that I heard, he just capitalized on that like crazy."

    Hateful people please just try to relax and breathe real quick. Why are successful people doing what the fuck they want making you so upset? I'm not saying Drake is the greatest or better than any hip hop legend at all, it is what it is-but dude has talent and more money than 99.3% of this blog will ever have...put together. If you don't like and hate so much than just don't read or pay attention to his shit, remove it, that's basically it. Do something about a situation you're so affected by if you're crying about it-make your own moves. No hate, just saying.

    • just for laughs

      But I like making comments on the internet. Plus I talk shit about people with equal or less money than me so i don't see why the rich should be excluded. Besides HipHopDx provided all of us , the stans and the haters an opportunity to make comments. Now if you hate what the haters are saying then don't read our comments or give us some sort of generic advise, like "make your own moves".

  • Maybe later

    Some hater on the internet speaks on Drake's " Take Care," he says " I still don't feel the need to thank him."

  • YOUAJOKE

    I BET THIS SHIT IS A LOVE ALBUM, DRAKE CANT DO NOTHING ELSE BUT LOVE SONGS. SAME BITCH WHO SAID HE WOULDNT GET INVOLVED IF HIS MAKER BEEFED WITH JAY Z. DUDES A FAGGOT

  • DrDreBeats

    Wayne saying one of his artists is "on another planet"? Well its not like hes going to say hes trash. I'm sure hell say the same thing about Gudda Gudda.

    there are alot of people hateful in their hearts about drake, because the young boy got talent, money and hoes. if you mad at him, you should go out and get money.

  • Marcus Crenshaw

    BULLSHIT!!! I call BULLSHIT on this one. Its the Machine working at its best. Weezy's hot right now so if he says Wheelchair Jimmy is killing it, then everyone will say Wheelchair Jimmy is killing it. WCJ can only kill Twinkies and Bon Bons with his fluff "rap". He's still garbage. Conversation artist, WTF?! I guess he is when his flow is weak as hell and says "Yeah!" between every 8 bars. Right now if Wayne said Hammer is in the studio, and his shit is off the hook, everybody would be blogging, "When is that new Hammer coming out?" #WEAKSAUCE

    @ dudes complaing...what do you expect them to say about eachother's shit? it sucks? of course drake is gonna say wayne's c4 is amazing, and vicer verser. its called promotion.... but they're still both good artists. give them a break

  • dee

    not sure if i will buy it or download it...i mean i think drake is one of the hottest rappers (lyrically) right now..i know he gets a lot of hate because he is soft as pillows...but when he not on some my heart hurt shit he really goes in ..besides he may have some soft material but most other rappers these days try talkin hard but walk around with skinny jeans and louie bags

      @yadig u still acting like u a lil wayne fan, but real niggas see through ur fake ass. this is the new form of hate for u haters. trying to say major crazy great things about wayne and dissing jay z (who u really luv), to try and get people to hate wayne. good thang the majority of the fans who buy records don't read blogs. u a fake just like ur mama ole broke azz lol.

  • Rob Korensky

    now when he says on another planet does he mean another R&B album with some rapping?

  • Anonymous

    Drake is ready to become a star now. The hype from the freshman album is over and now we see the kid is the real thing, because his fan base got bigger. November 15 I will be at Target picking up Take Care.

    • Anonymous

      I agree, he is ready to become a bigger star...but not a rap star. It's the women that really love him because of the r&b tip. They will be the ones buying his album and you will not hear them rapping drake lyrics that they love. You will hear them singing his hooks or verses

    • LOL

      Yo Anonymous, Katie just burned your ass. Take that shit like a man. LMAO!

    • Anonymous

      Katie Sporheim, you are just the typical broke hater that can't stop the real. You try to add your 2 lil cents, like it's going to change something. Drake is going gold in his first week and that's all there is to it lol. Just sit back and hate in the background. Listen to the album on You Tube and hate on it, while real niggas look inside the album cover. You probably ain't seen the inside of an album cover in a long time lol. November 15 is the day people with money to get whatever they want, will be buying Take Care.

    • Katie Sporheim

      I'll be there too! When you buy Drake's new cd Target is giving away a free pair of panties or a tampon!

  • bigwayne

    Nice Upside down cross on your shirt Lil Wayne... how the fuck you guys support Satanic music I dont know!! Save your souls!!

      It's a Mellowhype logo, Hodgy Beats + Left Brain from OFTWGKTA, for their second album Blackened White: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BlackenedWhite Before you get angry you oughta do some research. It's the main problem a lot of our politicians have these days, don't stoop to their level.

      lil wayne has said he loves jesus and pays tithes, so get ur facts straight about him, son.

  • @lias

    drake's always going to be good, because now he has his own lane and knows how to jump back and forth across the border with his style. he speaks for the current generation of listeners to whom keeping it real dosen't necessarily mean keeping it street or what it used to be, but a bit of everything, thereby keeping it global. i was resistant at first, but now i get it...i was thinking republican, but the future is a lil bit republican & lil bit democratic, plus a lil bit independent whether we like it or not. adapt or die trying to maintain the status quo.

    Thanks to Birdman for taking his dick outta Waynes mouth so he could say something!!

  • thought dog

    Damn, Birdman's rocking a lot of lip gloss in that video.

    Drake is getting better. But this album probably wont be it. When Drake stops being a trick and doing R&B shit will work out a lot better.

  • Shame

    Drakes good, better then Wayne most of you hate for no reason smh. Is he not lyrical enough or his wordplay is off? Beats are wack? Not saying he's great but have a reason why to hate. I listen to dhitloads of everything from underground to mainstream. Ra the rugged man, jeru the damaja , afu ra to jay z and there fourth. # truth

    Of course he's gonna dickride his own wack artist. They both fucking suck and need to fade out for good, along with his whole wack crew/roster on his dumb label. I'm tired of hearing wack music that makes no sense most of the time. They both sound the same and most artists these days in all genres sound the same. It's not just hip hop that is dying a slow death. Music in general sucks and there isn't much creativity or originality. The industry is full of fakes and bullshit....

  • Jay-z

    Drake is tight... wyane lame,. talk about nuttin

  • Greas

    What ever 'planet' these two are on, they need to stay there and quit gassin up the youth of this planet with garbage, fake ass music. "I'll give you the business..." Who believed that shit? My six year old even thought it was hilarious.
