Lil Wayne & 2 Chainz Perform Gotta Lotta On Jimmy Kimmel Live

On Wednesday (March 16th), Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz promoted their ColleGrove album on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” by performing their “Gotta Lotta” collaboration live.

We previously saw footage recorded from the crowd earlier this week, but now we can watch the pre-taped performance for TV that took place during Samsung’s 2016 Galaxy Life Fest at SXSW Interactive in Austin, Texas on March 12th.

You can watch Weezy, who used a Auto-Tuned microphone, and Tity Boi perform “Gotta Lotta” on the American talk show after the jump below!

Lil Wayne – Staring At The World

Lil Wayne Staring At The World

A new Lil Wayne track surfaced online last night called “Staring At The World“, and like “I Ain’t Nervous“, Weezy F Baby uses auto-tune. I wasn’t going to post this song at first, but then I found out it will not be appearing on I Am Not A Human Being II.

The record does sound like a leftover from a previous Wayne album, such as Tha Carter III, but re-recorded like he said he would be doing in his interview with Sway 2 months ago.

You can stream “Staring At The World” after the jump below.

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.

Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being EP Is Now An Album

Lil Waynes I Am Not A Human Being EP Is Now An Album

Cortez Bryant recently told SPIN that Lil Wayne‘s upcoming I Am Not A Human Being EP will now be a full album. Tez said that the songs on IANAHB were originally going to be on Tha Carter IV, but will be released now so that Weezy can fill C4 with new music instead: “I know once he got out of jail those songs would be so old to him” Bryant explains.

Tez Poe also told SPIN that Wayne has been busy in prison writing down lyrics in a notepad which he will record when he gets out (don’t forget Tunechi hasn’t written anything down since around 2002). Bryant said Wayne will immediately hit the studio once he gets out as well and that he will most likely release another mixtape of new material before releasing Tha Carter IV next year (I’m guessing Dedication 4).

Below, you can read a few highlights from the songs on I Am Not A Human Being which will have heavily auto-tuned vocals, drugged-out beats and loads of guest spots from his YMCMB family:

• “Young Money Salute”, featuring Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist and Nicki Minaj, is a banging, minor-key anthem, with Minaj doling out lines like “Camouflage me ‘cus Young Money is a navy.”

• “I Am Not A Human Being” mixes a heavy boom-bap with distorted guitar riffs–a rock sound similar to the one he tackled on Rebirth.

• “What’s Wrong With Them” crosses choppy synth melodies reminiscent of Wayne’s smash “Lollipop” with Wayne boasting, “Fuck the system and the pussy and all that.”

• “With You”, an R&B-style collaboration with Drake, is a hilarious ballad about seducing a Native-American woman. “Tall glass of Merlot get her in the mode,” he raps. “Two tall glasses of Merlot get her out her robe.”
