The O.D.: A Mixtape Daily Exclusive
The fans on Twitter are writing "Free @liltunechi." The fans on the street are screaming "Free Lil Wayne." Any way you put it, the people miss one of rap's most dynamic superstars.
We haven't sat down with Weezy yet for a new interview, but he left us some more footage of himself before [article id="1633428"]heading to jail last month[/article]. In the clip, Wayne is recording songs for his No Ceilings mixtape, and even though the music was coming out great, he wasn't 100 percent inspired.
"It's all right, but I really don't feel it like that," Wayne said, looking into the camera while shooting his [article id="1632822"]"Nino Brown Story"[/article] DVD. Someone off camera jokingly yells "bullsh--."
"I swear to God," Wayne insisted. "It's all right. I'm telling you, rappers now, you better get it up while I'm not feeling it like that. Once I start feeling it like that, y'all in trouble. Right now, I'm rappin' right now because y'all ain't heard me in a minute. I don't really feel it like that. But my artists though ... psssh. They'll eat you n---as' lunch. We superstars. We don't battle. We don't want to be compared to nobody. I teach, I preach and I [lead by example]. Superstars. We breed superstars. I teach them how to be superstars first. You don't wanna be a rapper, you don't wanna be a singer, you wanna be a superstar. Therefore you don't have to rap nor sing. You can do whatever, because you a superstar. It's easier."
Wayne recently teamed with another superstar, Eminem. As you know, they filmed the [article id="1633102"]video for "Drop the World"[/article] in February, and some new behind-the-scenes pictures have surfaced.
Also, we got a sneak peek at a Wayne video directed by DJ Scoob Doo. They made a movie. Check back soon for more on that one.
