Lil Wayne is back in full force, having returned to the recording booth after a months-long prison stint. His first solo offering was “6 Foot 7 Foot,” and his protégé Drake says Weezy’s single — and the Carter IV material he’s heard — has left him in awe.
“Watching this man work again, it’s crazy,” Drake told MTV News when we visited him on the set of Nicki Minaj’s “Moment 4 Life” video. “To hear ’6 Foot 7 Foot’ and not hear him waste one bar; didn’t sacrifice one moment. It’s good, he’s back. It’s an impressive record and I think it’s what he needed to get people talking.”
