As the hype continues to build towards Lil Wayne’s upcoming The Carter III, the accolades continue to come for Weezy as well.
Rolling Stone recently named Wayne “Best MC” in their Best of Rock 2008 issue. While it may be no surprise to many, it is what a Wayne guest appearance goes for these days that may shock people.
According to the feature, a verse from Weezy goes for $100k on average. The lowest Wayne will go to serve a hot sixteen? $75k.
“But nothing less!” Wayne says to the mag. “I wouldn’t do a song for my sister for less than $75,000.”
In the meanwhile, Wayne’s album is now staring at a June release date. The reason for the delay seems to be that Wayne is still recording new material. He also has been learning to play guitar (he recently played on Enrique Inglesias’ “Push”) and taking online classes at the University of Phoenix for a psychology degree.
Lil Wayne‘s The Carter III is due out June 10th on Universal/Cash Money.
