Chris Brown Recalls Himself & Lil Wayne Asking Busta Rhymes To Re-Record His Look At Me Now Verse

To promote his latest album, Breezy, Chris Brown sat down with the L.A. Leakers (Justin Credible and DJ Sourmilk) from Power 106 for an interview that you can watch below.

During their conversation at the 29:55 mark, CB recalled himself and Lil Wayne asking Busta Rhymes to re-do his verse on the “Look At Me Now” single while they were all in a studio session at The Hit Factory with Timbaland.

“Busta gave me a verse at first and it was just cool. Wayne was like: ‘I don’t know.’ I was like: ‘Yo Bus, I need you to go in bro, just do your sh*t bro.’ He said: ‘alright motherf*cker!’ He was like: ‘I gotchu.’ He just went crazy.”

After Busta re-did his verse, this is then when Wayne decided to record a verse for “Look At Me Now“, which Breezy says was originally supposed to be just a mixtape song before he decided to place it on his F.A.M.E. album in 2011. The track is now 8x Platinum!

Lil Wayne & Drake Share Songwriter Of The Year Award At BMIs 2012 Urban Music Awards

After a successful night at the 2012 MTV VMAs on Thursday, Young Money carry on winning by picking up three awards at BMI’s 2012 Urban Music Awards last night. Lil Wayne and Drake both won an award for “Songwriter Of The Year“, while Nicki Minaj‘s “Super Bass” was named “Song Of The Year“.

The awards show took place at the Saban Theatre in Beverly Hills, California, but Weezy, Drizzy and Nicki did not attend. However, the YMCMB General Birdman was in attendance and picked up the awards on their behalf, which would explain why he was absent from the VMAs.

The songwriter credits that helped Tune and Drake pick up the awards were: “She Will“, “6 Foot, 7 Foot“, “Look At Me Now“, “How To Love“, “Motivation“, “Aston Martin Music“, “Headlines“, “What’s My Name?“, and “Moment 4 Life“.
