Lil Wayne and Dr. Dre already have a hot collaboration cooking with Weezy’s special fire-red Beats By Dre headphones, but when will we actually hear some music from the two? Tunechi’s not exactly sure, but he knows that he and Dre have recorded close to 100 tracks through the years.
“I’ve always worked with Dre,” Wayne told MTV News on Thursday on his tour bus in Las Vegas. “I’m not sure if you guys know how Dre works, Dre always send you a song, so I done probably did like 90 songs for Dre. You just never know which one he gonna put out.”
There’s always the long-awaited Detox, but when the Good Doctor will drop his third official LP, only he knows. Weezy is readying the release of his 10th solo album I Am Not a Human Being II for December, but don’t expect the D-R-E to make a contribution to that project either. When MTV News asked the YMCMB boss who contributed to the LP, he rattled off a list of names that included Cool & Dre, Streetrunner and Juicy J, but no Dre.
Another mega-producer, Kanye West, will play a large role in Human Being II , according to Wayne. “Yeah he got some music on there,” he said. “It’s crazy, actually I don’t want to give too much up but he’s got a big hand in the album, you’ll see.”
As far as The Chronic producer, Tune is ready to jump into the studio with him at the drop of a dime. “I’ll always be up to work with Dre, it’s always cool with him,” he said. “As far as the headphones, I’m super-excited about that collaboration, I couldn’t be more excited.”
