In the clip, which you can check out below, Cortez Bryant, KY Engineering, Jeff Burroughs, and Jabbari Weekes all spoke to the camera about Drake solidifying himself as one of the biggest icons in the music industry.

Tez mentioned that once Drizzy Drake and Lil Wayne started making music together, he knew it was a wrap.

Lil Wayne & His Mixing Engineer Hype Up The Free Weezy Album

Lil Wayne‘s mixing engineer, Fabian Marasciullo, has showed off a screenshot which he says he never normally does of a text message conversation that he had with Wayne yesterday on his Instagram page.

Looking at the messages, Fabian tells Tunechi that he can’t mix his Free Weezy Album today because he is too busy just listening to the vocals, as well as “this is what the world needs” and how the music is “fuckin’ amazing”.

It’s like a mike Tyson 1988 uppercut, maybe like watching Jordan in the 88 slam dunk contest when He launched from free throw line, maybe how Chris Paul felt a couple weeks ago? I dunno. Shout out to TUNE #FWA”.

If this wasn’t enough to get you hyped for the Free Weezy Album, the YM CEO even went on his Twitter a few days ago to tweet: “I honestly gotta say that this #FWA album is my best work yet! I won’t let u down as a fan. Dis sh!t is a beast! Ok let me get bak 2da booth”!
