Video: Birdman Speaks On Lil Wayne & The IANAHB Album
Weezy gets back to “raw rap,” according to the Birdman.
“When Wayne do what he do, he takes serious pride in his work,” he told MTV News this week in Miami. “Nothing we do is half-stepping or half-cocked. I think it’s a great album. To me, he’s switching back: This album has no Vocoder, he’s back to raw rap. He’s just rapping how he’s feeling. He’s a genius, so the music is always gonna be great. He wanted to put I Am Not a Human Being out to show people he’s always in the building. Every album we put out we’re going to do the most; we’re gonna go for it. We’re never gonna come half-cocked, you expect to see a lot, you gonna get a lot. It’s a great album.”
“He’s an addict, he’s a monster, he’s a beast,” Baby said of Wayne’s work ethic. “He loves what he does. He probably has thousands of songs, these probably are just the ones he picked for the album. This was the plan while he was gone: do a lot of videos and put these records out just to keep it poppin’ hard.
“Honestly, if he wasn’t gone, it wouldn’t feel like he was gone, ’cause we did so much while he was gone,” the Cash Money boss added.
The thing I don’t understand is that Tez told SPIN 6 days ago the album will be heavily auto-tuned, and now Baby is saying the album will have no auto-tune… hmmm.
