Lil Wayne In The Studio Recording The Original Version Of “Hittas” & Playing It For Drake [Video]

Lil Wayne In The Studio Recording The Original Version Of Hittas & Playing It For Drake

Lil Wayne took to his Instagram page a few days ago to reveal some exclusive behind the scenes footage of him recording his “Hittas” song.

The clip shows Wayne recording the original version of Tha Carter V track before then playing it for Drake, who calls it an “anthem” and tells Tune that he needs to give him the session so he can record an alternative version to it.

It’s unknown if Drizzy did ever record another version or a remix of “Hittas“, but he does have one line on the 2018 version that we all heard: “Weezy, where you been? The people miss you”.

You can check out the behind the scenes video that was filmed by DJ Scoob Doo after the jump below! With the “To Be Continued” at the end, I wonder if we are about to get a C5 in the making documentary, or even the long-awaited The Nino Brown Story (Part 3)?

DJ Folk Reveals Why Songs Like Life Of Mr Carter & Kidnap Cupid Didnt Make Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album

Production coordinator DJ Folk wrote an article for DJ Booth after Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album was released to talk about his work on the project, as well as how it felt seeing C5 on hold with the Wayne vs. Birdman lawsuit.

In the article, Folk revealed why some of the songs that we have heard snippets for, such as “Life Of Mr. Carter” (prod. P.C.), “Kidnap Cupid” (co-prod. Megaman and Zalezy), and “World On My Shoulders” (prod. BP) did not make Tha Carter V.

DJ Folk also mentioned that he sent Weezy the “Gotti” and “Hittas” beats, which were produced by Jayones, in the same e-mail back in late 2013, so he is glad that he is now a part of the album with A&Ring “Hittas“. You can read everything that Folk said below!
