Drake Says Lil Wayne Didn’t ‘Waste One Bar’ On ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’

'I think it's what he needed to get people talking,' Young Money protégé tells MTV News.

[artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist] is back in full force, having returned to the recording booth after a months-long prison stint. His first solo offering was “6 Foot 7 Foot,” and his protégé [artist id=”2545682″]Drake[/artist] says Weezy’s single — and the Carter IV material he’s heard — has left him in awe.

“Watching this man work again, it’s crazy,” Drake told MTV News when we visited him on the set of Nicki Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life” video. “To hear ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’ and not hear him waste one bar; didn’t sacrifice one moment. It’s good, he’s back. It’s an impressive record and I think it’s what he needed to get people talking.”

The Bangladesh-produced “6 Foot 7 Foot” featuring Cory Gunz is the lead single from Tha Carter IV.

“Life is a bitch and death is her sister/ Sleep is the cousin, what a f—in’ family picture,” Wayne raps on the frenetic number. “You know Father Time, we all know Mother Nature/ It’s all in the family, but I am of no relation.”

The New Orleans MC is working feverishly to complete his next project. He’s been at work on the follow-up to I Am Not a Human Being since last month when he was sprung from the Eric M. Taylor Center on New York’s Rikers Island. So far, Drake has heard an in-progress collection of tunes and said he expects Wayne to deliver once again.

“I’m not even gonna talk it up,” he said. “I’m not gonna preach about it, it’s dope.”
