Lil Wayne has produced tons of singles in his career so far, but he has never been excited as he is now for the freshly leaked ‘How to Love.’
Speaking in a recent interview with MTV host Sway in ‘Unplugged,’ Lil Wayne described ‘How to Love’ as an amazing song, the likes of which he has never made before.
The song which got leaked online last week, has been produced by Detail and Wayne-the singer, can be heard crooning on it-something very unusual for an artist who has made his name in the rap game. A philosophical =-sounding Weezy commented, “You had a lot of crooks try to still your heart, never really had luck, couldn’t never figure out how to love.”
For quite some time, the Cash Money crew has been sending out signals that a major track from ‘Tha Carter IV’ album is about to be dropped. Young Money president Mack Maine was the first one to leak in May that the next Weezy song would be a major thing that will be very popular among the masses and last week he did confirm that it was ‘How to Love’ about whom everyone has been mumbling.
Lil Wayne said, “When I listen to it I get goose bumps. And I feel like the song is gonna take me somewhere that I’ve never been musically.”
Actually he has been looking to add a bit more variety in his I Am Still Music Tour and the arrival of ‘How to Love’ would enable him to do that exactly. Explaining his whole vision, he said, “You know that if you come to a Lil Wayne show two years from now, you already know that ‘I’m gonna get rap — some of the best rap — I’m gonna get some guitar, I’m gonna get some singing’, I’m gonna get some dancing’, I’m gonna get some old-school music, and I’m going’ to a show tonight.’ And I think that’s where this song is directing me to.”
It is the clearest indication that the A-Milli MC is trying to evolve as an artist and wants to add more weaponry to his arsenal. Wayne said, he realized a few years ago that he doesn’t want to confine his talents to the rap boundaries. Instead, he wants to explore the other great genres of modern music and taste more musical tastes before his time is up.
In a bold statement, he added, “When you think about it, Tupac is just known as a great rapper; Biggie is just known as a great rapper, Jay-Z — just known as a great rapper,” he continued. “I want to be known as that rapper that turned it all the way up and became the face of the music.”
So there you have it. Lil Wayne wants to be known in the broader sense of music rather than just being another great rapper.Tags:lil wayne, MTV Unplugged, Tupac, Young Money
