Cool From Cool & Dre Talks About How Lil Wayne Has Been Gearing Up For An Amazing 2017 - 2018

Cool from producer duo Cool & Dre recently chopped it up with Kathy Iandoli for an interview with BET for their “musicians who got our attention in 2016” article.

In the interview, Cool revealed that he thinks Lil Wayne has had a great 2016, but it has not been where his previous years were and that’s because he has been dealing with a lot of business to make sure 2017 is a totally different year.

The producer also confirmed he has been working in the studio with Tunechi on new music, as well as that Tune has “an amazing catalog of stuff that hasn’t been released” yet. Cool mentioned that Wayne has “been gearing up for an amazing 2017-2018” too.

You can read exactly what he said about Mr. Carter after the jump below! I’m already looking forward to seeing what Weezy will drop next year, are you?

Looking at it from my point of view, what Lil Wayne did in 2016 was great, but not where his previous years were.

He was dealing with a lot of business and gearing up for what he’s bringing in 2017 sonically and the projects he’s got going on. Of course, we’ll be [in the studio with him]. Anything Wayne works on, rest assured Cool & Dre are gonna have something crazy on there. We’ve been cutting records and he has so much music already. With Wayne, he always has such an amazing catalog of stuff that hasn’t been released, where he can go through the music and cut a batch of new stuff and put together an amazing project.

He doesn’t really let a lot of people come up with melodies and hooks on his music and with us he gave the green light. We’ll send him a couple of beats and one with a hook or melody or an idea, and then he takes it from there and brings it to life. He doesn’t do that with a lot of people. With some artists, we’re kind of in the studio for the whole process and we have done that in the past with Wayne.

Now that he has a grasp on the things that took place this year and is handling it all, he’s been gearing up for an amazing 2017-2018. I’m just excited for him, because he’s our brother and we’re just glad that we’re a part of it.

        • Kollegiate Kermit

          imma have to go to jail for arson if i see anotha video there tho

  • Kollegiate Kermit

    its kinda funny and fucked up how waynes lyricism is levels above his c2-c3 era but he gets no shine for it. This man comtinues to get better and better. No more shade doe after 2016

    • Patrick H

      Because all these hipsters just want to hear mumble rap now it’s a total joke.

    • OGER710

      fr smh

    • Sparks

      Did you just say say Wayne’s lyricism level now is above c2 -c3 era. Bruh I think you need to chill. Wayne has had so many cringe worth songs and lyrics. IANAHB2 was the worst. No ceilings 2 was bad. Don’t say that he’s above c2 and C3 era. When it’s just recently that he’s trying to get back lyrically

      • jamalLKingdom

        You are clearly talking out of your ass you personally just haven’t Advanced mentally to understand what’s going on and you are clearly not a true fan you’re a fan but not a true fan please don’t reply bro I aint finna reply back

        • Sparks

          Stfu. I’m not a true fan cause I have an opinion on my fav rapper ? You stans are literally killing music. I’m not a true fan cause I feel Wayne was way lyrical back InC2 – c3 era? . Mehn these new niggas is something else

          • Khosta

            His lyricism has been dope though but not on NC2 but every other song from 2014 till now his lyricsm been ill but not on C3 level just no

            • Maxx

              Im sorry but this may be the silliest thing i have ever heard. think about wayne and juelz era, think about wayne from 05-09. when everone who got theyre hands on awayne verse released it. leave out the carter 3, everything he put out was untouchable. Now i feel like he has gotten lazy.

          • bob

            Waynes 14-15 lyrics are above c2s.

            • Sparks

              All opinions but I don’t agree. Ain’t no way in hell that sftw2 lyrics were better than c2 lyrics. And c2 is consider to be Wayne’s best album

              • Maxx

                I 100% agree man.

              • bob

                your getting flow confused with lyricism. Carter 2 just had great flow, carter 3 songs like mr carter,dr carter shoot me down playing with fire and tie my hands blow carter 2 lyrics out the water. Da drought 3 is lyrically better than c2. the only time wayne had lyrics up to par with 14-15 lyrics was squad up-dedication 1 era.

                • Sparks

                  I urge you to go listen to c2 again. You are confusing punchlines with lyrics. Wayne’s punchlines and metaphors were at an all time high for c3. But straight hardcore Bars was c2. Bro Wayne had dope features in 2014 but 2015 wasn’t all that great with software 2 and nc 2. Still It’s all opinions

                • bob

                  sftw2 was packed with punchlines,metaphors,similes and some other play on words he never used. Besides that, NC2 was at the end of 2015, and I dont mention it

    • Dadany Toure

      Everything you said its just 💯 facts🙏🏽

  • Patrick H

    Does anyone own an Apple Watch?

    • Kollegiate Kermit

        • Kollegiate Kermit

          • Patrick H

            Good looks they look a little too expensive for me.

            • Kollegiate Kermit

              yeah i regret it but im an apple fan so when they drop shit i usually bite

              • Patrick H

        • Kollegiate Kermit

          i hope he take their fire ass beats and bring respect to them and make niggas easily forget the originals

          • Stefan David Tufis

            fo’real every track wayne remixes becomes his track

            • bob

              I think he already off the label. Remember the 30 day court issue that birdman failed to release? Wayne was probably bought after that by jay. Waynes camp never released what happened after that court day. They probably want the element of suprise on their sife. Wayne did say he has alot of good news

    • Patrick H

      YMRoc

  • Kollegiate Kermit

    “too much money aint enuf money…
    imma maid/made nigga, should dust sumthin”

  • Kollegiate Kermit

    hocus pocus bye bye poof

  • Kollegiate Kermit

    for the life of me ill never understand why birdman double crossed lil wayne when that man was so loyal to him that he called him his father… smdh

    • Patrick H

      Greed.

      • Kollegiate Kermit

        Agreed… damn bars 🔥🔥

        • Patrick H

          Now go and “succeed” being a rapper.

          • Kollegiate Kermit

            momma said take heed
            judge say take the plea
            dope man up his fee

        • Justin Cayz

      I cant either

  • CarterBoy

    Good read

  • #1Stunna

    Remember when Mack and Wayne said they are going to be the Beatles record and drop 10 projects in one year?.. Maybe 2017 will be the year, more likely 2018 tho. Honestly I don’t care how many projects they drop, I just don’t want them to sign with Roc Nation

    • Tunefan1234

      Y? It’s a way of Wayne being free

      • #1Stunna

        Because Wayne and YM too big to sign to a label. YM should be their own label not some imprint in Roc. YM has sold more rap albums than any other label on this planet since it’s birth.

        • bob

          Do you not understand that jay was kind enough to buy him out that contract? Nobody else was putting that money up. Ne grateful now that he finnaly away from baby like it should of been back in 04

          • #1Stunna

            Stop.

            • bob

              you rather dickride than tell the truth alright lol

              • #1Stunna

                You delusional asf.

    • P0W£R

      Wayne signing with Roc Nation might be the best thing that ever happens to him, their executive management team is the best in the industry plus he’ll have more freedom there, Roc nation let’s their artists act as independent for the most part. The label is just for dropping albums only and you drop whenever you want to.

    • Tuned #BWA #POP

      Who cares where he sign

      • #1Stunna

        I do. Why would he sign to a lesser label and dump everything he worked for in terms of YM.

  • Kollegiate Kermit
  • Dr Carter

    Ok might be late but is it me or Wayne is saying “Devil alive” in The Best Rapper Alive ? 🤔

    • Khosta

      Its you

    • P0W£R

      I bet we are getting D6 Funeral and C5 next year.

    • Tuned #BWA #POP

    • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

      Me to bruh Ian get no butterflies but ik he was waiting to drop next year

  • P0W£R

    Wayne didn’t drop anything this year because the vibe wasn’t right plus there was way too many wack rappers dropping this year. He had no competition , he knows that they won’t be hot past this year so he’ll be coming back next year🔥💯. So much greatness is dropping next year 2017 is about to be Goat! Turn up on New Years if you can.

    • bob

      Dickriding fans lol. Wayne didnt release because he COULDNT. Hopefully now he can drop the shitty voice pitch for his new years resolution
