Whenever the name Lil Wayne is involved, I have to take notice.  That being said I have zero interest in these two projects.  If I wanted to hear someone doing rock music, I would listen to a rock band.  These “crossover” projects never go as well as they’re supposed to.  Would you want to hear a rock star rap?  Probably not.  Plus Wayne is bragging about how he’s playing guitar on 80% of the tracks.  Is Wayne a talented guitarist, or can he simply play the guitar?  As far as this Young Money project goes, you should check out my rant here.  I like Drake, but I don’t like the stuff he does with Young Money.  I think Nicki Minaj is absolutely terrible, but I am willing to admit that she has a fan base.  If not just to stare at her butt.  But then lets look at who else is in Young Money.  Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, T-Streets, Shanell & Mach Maine.  Would you honestly even listen to one of their tracks if Lil Wayne wasn’t featured on it?  Below Weezy speaks on Rebirth with MTV.

  • Yes, the album is still rock,” he said. “I play guitar on 80 percent of the songs, and there’s a lot of rock influences and rock beats. I also have Travis Barker on the album. But I don’t want people to think I’m trying to do something I can’t do. Don’t think you’re going to put on the album and hear me screaming and singing.

    “When I said I was doing a rock album, it was about doing a freedom thing,” he continued. “This album isn’t hip-hop. When I do my Carter albums, I know I’ve got to rap, I know I’ve got to spit. I know the words I’ve got to say and the subjects I’ve got to talk about. I also know the things I shouldn’t say, the things I shouldn’t talk about. There’s none of those limits on this album. I say what I want, how I want. That’s what this album is: a freedom album.

    Wayne has suggested that he might release Rebirth and the Young Money crew album as a double disc. Because a few of the songs from Wayne’s album have leaked online during the past few months, he said he went back to the lab to cook up some new songs to throw off fans who thought they knew what he was up to.

    I had to add new cuts, because a lot of things leaked, making people think they had an idea of what I was doing with Rebirth and what it would sound like,” he said. “And I hated that, because I never want anybody to think they know what I’m doing until I present it. So what I did was make it totally different. I flipped it.

    In addition to protégé Drake, the album is slated to include guest spots from members of Fall Out Boy and Lenny Kravitz. It’s unknown if Rebirth will be the last full-length album Wayne will release before he is scheduled to go to prison in New York for at least eight months after pleading guilty to a felony charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.  A spokesperson for Wayne did not return requests for comment at press time for confirmation that the Young Money album, We Are Young Money, will be packaged with Rebirth.
