Not that she was short of any, but Kelly Rowland has gotten a huge motivation boost on the recently released ‘Motivation’ video, thanks to Lil Wayne’s appearance on the track. Rowland has done her trademark work on the song, singing in her usual sexy style, while Weezy has added his personal touch to make the collaboration sound more ‘urgent and urban,’-as according to the R&B singer herself.
Speaking in a post-release interview with MTV, Rowland said that she and Wayne go way back. The idea to do a joint venture came when Rowland was in the studio with music producers Jim Jonsin and Rico Love. When she told Rico that she is looking to do a sexy track, he discussed the idea with Jonsin and then the whole ‘Motivation’ plan came together. She then met Wayne at a basketball game and he quickly absorbed the idea after Rowland briefed him up about the potential collaboration.

Lil Wayne has declared that he is going to break away from the boundaries of rap music and present a more varied musical sound on his future projects and who can give a more detailed insight on this new revelation than ‘Detail’- the man who produced Weezy’s latest pop venture ‘How to Love’ from his Tha Carter IV album.
Speaking in an interview with MTV, Detail said, “Wayne is a rock star and he’s up for any challenge in the world as long as it feels right. He don’t ever really discriminate on talent and people; if it feels right, he’s up for the challenge.” Continue reading Lil Wayne’s ‘How to Love’ Stunned Producer Detail »
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.” Continue reading Wayne Wants To Be Known As a Musician Rather Than a Rapper »
Dr. Dre’s friendship with The Game may have some competition as now there is a new ‘Dre’ in town, with whom the Los Angeles-born MC is getting buddies with. Well actually it’s the production duo of Cool and Dre, who we’re talking about. The Miami-based producers are the creative force behind ‘Red Nation’-the first single of Game’s forthcoming studio collection The R.E.D. Album.
Speaking with MTV from his hometown city of Los Angeles where he was busy shooting the Red Nation video, Game lavished immense praise on his longtime collaborators. He said that from his very initial days in the rap business to his current project, Cool and Dre have always been supportive and have provided him with great material for him throughout his rap career. Game considers the two as his brothers in the music industry and they have always responded by repaying the respect that the Game has for them. ‘Red Nation,’ ‘Big Dreams’ and the Ne-Yo featuring ‘Camera Phone’ are all shining examples of the trio’s understanding and hitmaking combination.

New Orleans jam-packed Hornets Arena went wild when Lil Wayne took to the stage and kicked off the proceedings with the line: “It’s good to be home, New Orleans.”
Fresh from concluding his ‘I Am Still Music’ countrywide tour, Weezy and all his tour mates including Porcelain Black, Mix Master Mike & Travis Barker, and Ricky Ross took turns to treat the perplexed crowd of Cash Money CEO’s hometown. Later on in the show DJ Khaled also made a surprise appearance.
Wayne started off with an intense performance of “A Milli” and “Got Money,” then he called out DJ 45 and asked him to present something in honour of his native city. He then launched into his tribute to the rappers that have recently died and paid his respect in his trademark lyrical style.
After Minaj vacated the stage, the audience was given a full dose of Young Money stars, as Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda and Mack Maine all teamed up with their record label boss to rip apart ‘Every Girl.’ Wayne remained in the limelight, but his minions departed so Ace Hood could come forward for ‘Hustle Hard’- his duet with the Young Money founder. It was then time for Weezy to take a much deserved break, so Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, Gudda, Mack and Millz combined to spit ‘Bedrock.’ Cash Money CEO Birdman then made an appearance to deliver a sizzling version of his hit track ‘Fire Flame (Remix).’
