It’s safe to say Lil Wayne is a colorful MC when it comes to his rhymes, but on his latest number, he might have taken creative license to new heights: The song is named after an STD.
“Gonorrhea,” a track from Weezy’s forthcoming release, I Am Not a Human Being, hit the Web earlier this week. The song features Drake, and when MTV News caught up with him before his second headlining concert in Miami , the Toronto lyricist laughed about the record, calling it “crazy.”
“I kind of just did my verse when I heard the beat. I knew what the song was called and what it was about eventually,” Drake told us. “Wayne’s a character. [Laughs.] Expect the unexpected, I guess. It’s funny and it definitely makes people [pay attention]. It’s like, ‘Chlamydia! Oh, I should listen to this, maybe it’s educating me.’ [Laughs.] It’s crazy. But people like it, I got a lot of good feedback on the verse. I think [the project] is just a lot of Wayne songs that, it’s that stuff that people want to hear. But Tha Carter IV is gonna be on another level. It’s something for people to enjoy it, buy it, love it; if you love Lil Wayne, get it. But know that Tha Carter IV is going to be through the roof.”
On the track, the two Young Money stars trade rhymes about subpar MCs, likening them to gonorrhea and telling them to stay away. “Yeah, call it how I see ‘em,” Wayne chants on the chorus. “Wish I never met you, I wouldn’t want to be you/ Pu— ass n—a, I don’t want you gonorrhea.”
I Am Not A Human Being is set for a digital release on September 27 — Lil Wayne’s birthday — and drops in disc form on October 12.
