    Fun little fact about IANAHB2 intro


    You recently recorded with Lil Wayne. What was it like recording with him?
    It verified for me that rap has all the qualities that made jazz what jazz was once upon a time. When I was in the studio with him, just hearing to him talk reminded me of listening to Miles Davis talk. When we recorded we didn't use a click track, we recorded like jazz musicians record, without a click track. It was like being at a jazz session. It felt like I was in a real jazz session, like when I was recording with Wynton and all that. The experience was surprisingly native to me
    Just the producer ELEW talking about being in the studio with Wayne

    - - - Updated - - -

    Elew:
    The relationship that Harriet Tubman has to Wynton, and the relationship she has to Lil’ Wayne is the same relationship I have to her. It has to do with this canon, this story of a people, of a place. So that’s the commonality that exists between the two.I’ll tell you: When I was in the studio with Lil’ Wayne, his low, gravelly voice, and his professionalism, reminded me of Elvin Jones. It also reminded me of Miles Davis. When we recorded, we didn’t use a click track. It was just me and him; like a jazz session. So regardless of hip-hop and other controversial styles of music coming from the Afro-American community, the Harriet Tubman element is a powerful [connection]. It has the ability to turn a gulf into a tear.

    Judging from the pic, i'd say this song was recorded either in 2011, or early 2012. Cuz wayne has his dreads braided in the pic, and the last time he did that was february 2012.
