In the meantime, he’s been putting in 12-hour studio shifts on an all-new project: the cleverly titled The Free Weezy Album, which he plans to release for free in March. “I’m working on it every day, man,” he says. “I guarantee it’s going to be something dope. If you don’t want a musician being creative, don’t get The Free Weezy Album.” (Rolling Stone)
Here’s what Wayne had to say about today’s hip-hop scene.
Wayne keeps up with younger artists – “I like Rae Sremmurd and Migos,” he says – but after nearly 20 years in the business, he feels that his age is starting to show. “Sometimes I don’t know what the hell they’re talking about on Instagram,” he says with a laugh. When that happens, he turns to his 16-year-old daughter, Reginae: “I had to call her, like, ‘What the hell is “on fleek”?’” (Rolling Stone)
