"I don't like to do real songs on there, 'cause the producers be wanting their money. So I just do sh-- that's already out. It's easier. N---as be like, 'You killed that n---a on his own song.' That's not the intentions. No, I did not kill nobody on their song. I like the song. That's why I liked it. I didn't kill them. I ain't even rapping like them. I killed their song though."
-Mixtape mastermind Lil Wayne, talking to DJ Scoob Doo about why he doesn't use very many original productions on his tapes and instead sticks to jacked beats. For No Ceilings, his latest release that dropped over the weekend, Weezy borrows the backing tracks from such recent hits as Jay-Z's "D.O.A. (Death of Auto-Tune)," Black Eyed Peas' "I Gotta Feeling," Clipse's "I'm Good" and Beyoncé's "Sweet Dreams." No Ceilings is a typical Wayne blaster, full of lateral thinking, crazy rhymes and Weezy's outer space flow. It's the first in what will likely be a torrent of material from Wayne's camp between now and February, when he must begin serving his recently-delivered jail sentence.
