Lil Wayne Says Drake Is The Only Artist Who Makes Him Want To Adjust His Verses

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne hosted a Q&A session on his Twitter page where he answered questions from fans all about his C4 album.

In the question and answer session, Weezy revealed why “How To Love” was the hardest song for him to create, how Tech N9ne and Andre 3000 ended up featured on Tha Carter IV, and that both “President Carter” and “Nightmares Of The Bottom” were written while he was locked up inside Rikers Island.

Tunechi also hinted that he may be featured on Drake‘s upcoming Certified Lover Boy album with a “#CLB” hashtag when answering a question about if he has ever received a verse that was “so hot” it made him want to go back to the recording booth and adjust his own verse:

“The answer is the same person every time and that person is Drake. Everything Drake sent back, I always have to go back and [redo]. It’s always because he says something in there that make me be like: ‘ooh, I could make more of the song and capitalize more of the song off of something that he just said and that I didn’t say’… That’s always the person.”
