Lil Wayne made the transition from star to superstar with his extraordinary work ethic, releasing a slew of mixtape material and reaching the tipping point with 2008′s Tha Carter III.
Since his release from prison late last year, however, the Cash Money Records artist has been conservative about putting out new official offerings, aside from his own “6 Foot 7 Foot.” But a snippet of a new Weezy track, “You & I,” surfaced online on Thursday (February 24) and it appears to be from a forthcoming DJ Drama and DJ Woogie mixtape.
“All we do is fuss and f— / Over this and that and such and such,” Wayne raps on the number.
“Man, I think I gotta toughen up/ Love knocks you down/ And it feels like I been sucker-punched/ But I love her like new money/ I ain’t going nowhere like Al Bundy/ I’m like how can I leave her?/ Love is a bitch but everybody need her/ Inhale, exhale, I just need a breather/ Call a timeout and watch the cheerleaders/ And when I’m not feeling the same, I just drive my Bugatti down memory lane/ And come back to you.”
In addition to “”6 Foot” and “You & I,” Wayne has loaned his rhymes to a remix of Bruno Mars’ “Grenade” , Birdman’s “Fire Flame” and a Super Bowl edition of Wiz Khalifa’s “Black and Yellow.”
Wayne is scheduled to debut his “6 Foot” video on MTV soon.
