Lil Wayne Has Remixed Bill Withers’ 1972 Song “Lean On Me” To Be About Lean/Syrup

Lil Wayne Has Remixed Bill Withers 1972 Song Lean On Me To Be About Lean Syrup

Back in February, HOT 97’s Marisa Mendez went on Twitter to tweet that she “heard so many dope new Wayne tracks” and last week, A$AP Retro asked her about the new Lil Wayne music she had listened to.

Marisa revealed that one of the Tunechi songs she heard was “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar produced by Infamous, which we already know will appear on Tha Carter V.

Another Tune track that she had heard was a remix of Bill Withers‘ 1972 single, “Lean On Me“, that she says he recorded to being about lean aka syrup.

I’m really curious to hear this remix, so I hope we get it on Weezy‘s next project (possibly Dedication 6). You can listen to the Bill Withers version below! Is anyone else looking forward to hearing Wayne‘s version of it?

Before the interview ended, 2 Chainz also revealed that him and Weezy are about to release a collaboration project called Colligrove “sooner than people think”.

Lil Wayne Taken To Intensive Care Unit After Suffering From Another Seizure

Lil Wayne Unstable In A Coma After Suffering From Another Seizure

Just yesterday, I posted that Lil Wayne had been rushed to hospital earlier in the week after suffering from multiple seizures. Now even more scarier news has just surfaced online saying that Weezy F Baby is in critical condition after suffering from yet another seizure.

According to TMZ, one of Wayne‘s bodyguards went in to his room and found him on the floor unconscious. He was taken to ICU and placed in restraints, because he was shaking non-stop.

Sources tell TMZ that they think the reason behind these seizures are because Tunechi has been drinking too much syrup. The doctors had found a high amount of codeine in his system and they also mentioned that Tune had to have his stomach pumped three times to flush all the drugs out of his system.

UPDATES:
Lil Wayne tweets: “I’m good everybody. Thx for the prayers and love.”
Mack Maine tweets: “Wayne is alive and well! We watching the Syracuse game…thanks for the prayers and concern..he will update you all soon. #love”
Birdman tweets: “My son is in good spirit..feelin much betta…be home soon.YMCMB”

So it looks like TMZ made a lot of this story up. But Weezy did have a seizure and he is currently recovering in the hospital.
