Lil Wayne Put His ‘Stamp’ On “We Are The World” Director Paul Haggis Says x Jay Rock Interview


‘You don’t expect Lil Wayne to be singing like this,’ he says of Weezy tackling Bob Dylan’s verse from the original.

“They each put their own distinctive stamp on it,” Haggis, who wrote and directed the Oscar-winning film “Crash,” told MTV News. “So say he did the Bob Dylan part — well, those are lines Bob Dylan did, and no one can ever sing them like him again. But when Lil Wayne sings them, you’ll never imagine someone else singing them [either].”

Wayne said the opportunity to be involved in such a major undertaking is something his children can hold on to forever. As for his mother, he chuckled when he said that all she asked was that he get Gladys Knight’s photo for her. “I’m still overwhelmed,” Weezy said, looking around the room at the galaxy of stars that ranged from Pink and Carlos Santana to Usher and Barbra Streisand. “I was like, ‘Where do I fit in?’ I thought my name got mixed up.”

Haggis at first joked that Wayne sang his verse just like Dylan. “Very much like Bob,” he quipped. But the director said the sum of the parts on the remake will be just as inspiring as the original.

“The great thing about working with so many people, ” Haggis said, “these artists of this caliber, where you know them from this type of music or that, but when they really come together to sing this type of song, you don’t expect Lil Wayne to be singing like this or Pink to be singing like that, or even Tony Bennett to be singing like that or Barbara [Streisand]. It was wonderful how they all morphed together.”

Via MTV, and the video premieres tonight at NBC’s coverage of the opening ceremony of the Vancouver Winter Olympics. Then, the track will be available on iTunes for download.
