Lil Wayne Covers Billboard

Lil Wayne talks Rebirth to Billboard:

Given earlier leaks from the project, did you make many changes to the final version?
As of now Rebirth is coming out as a double disc with a [disc of songs] by Young Money. 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. 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.

Does the album still lean toward rock?
Yes, the album is still rock. I play guitar on 80% 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 . . . Don’t worry about that [laughs]. When people hear me say rock, they may get a little scared like, Oh, God. What is he going to do? When I said I was doing a rock album, it was about doing a freedom thing. 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. And rock is the avenue that gives you that freedom. I’m just having fun, that’s all. Trust me: People will like these songs. It’s my job to make them love them, but I know for a fact they’ll like them.

    I have a question for everyone and i want people to be honest, at one point in life can you cut the cord with someone, after you have given them a chance at a new life and that person gets arrested 7 times and most recent this very same year, at what point as a man can you just say im done??
    ===========================================
    There’s nothing wrong with that.

    But why not let him out of his contract so he could go get money elsewhere. That’s the shady shit.

    Iceberg,

    Look at the audience…Music and rational don’t mix…Underground music lovers on this site will always take the underdog or the emotional cat…

    Seems like a lot of these dudes got beans mentality and want a nigga to do something for them…I’ve cut plenty of cords on dudes and it wasnt about no money…I just cant fuck with them no more….

    Now matter how much beans fucked up his situation…niggas would still take his side…Because they hate that Jay is about his money and never slipped up..

  4. AmpGeez a.k.a Get Rich Or Blog Tryin' Says:

    Bang Em Smurf did it to 50 Cent. Bang Em and 50 go way back, they held each others sons and named them after each other in their sons middle names. They can’t see each other in person.
    ==========================================
    That situation is far deeper then Beans & Jay.

    The reason Smurf goes so hard at Fif is cause he still has love for the nigga. Fif raised Smurf and he recently said that one day Smurf’ll come back home cause I think deep down inside, Fif still got love for the nigga cause Smurf was Fif’ s number one soldier in the streets, before rap.

    Alot of you should cut your ethernet cord.

    im just been real now, no stan, you have to understand that beans has houses, his mom has houses, his kids are in better schools than he was ever in, my thing was they beneifited also, not just jayz…for years no one said anything when they were 2gether but after time jay or any man has a right to point his life in any direction with whomever he chooses……..beans has sumthin no one on here has a household name and to this day he can make money off that its up to him, jay saw sumthin in beans that wud nvr change and made the choice to remove his self from around him…sad but thats life

    ^thats the game though, if you want success, you have to have the heart for it. you’re not gonna get ahead without using someone and thats where the callousness comes in.

    @Boosie

    So you think if Jay was to go broke before all of this and the diss record, beans wouldn’t fuck with him no more?
    ________________________________________________________________

    Of Course Not…Does beens still fuck with sparks or Oschino?….Beans is only going after Jay cause Jay is the Top dawg and succeeded after all the break ups…Dame still got millions (but dwindling)…SHouldnt Dame be beans biggest target…He STOLE money..

    Didnt you hear oschino talking about Dame paying his rent?…Do you still “feel” a nigga with that mentality

    Street niggas view on life is very simple

    Loyalty trumps everything, even money. Niggas grow up with no father figure in a enviorment where you need some type of male influence, when they don’t find that, they find it in othe things, like there block, there street niggas that grew up the same way. They was tight when the money was thin and visa versa, so I understand why beans is more mad at Jay then dame, cause the money you can always get back, but the love you invested you can never get that back. Maybe I understand cause I am/was a full time street nigga, not no fake, play street nigga either, and honestly I agree with segal’s anger.

    I’d rather have more loyalty than money anyday.

    …GTFOH these niggas was grown ass men when they met each other…jay was fucking 30 yrs. old aarp card and all…this nigga better contact big brother for a father figure.

    SHots…but Amp I can see why you’re a garbage collector for the state…CEO 101…you dont let another person go to a competitor…If any white man executive was in that same position…they would have done the same thing…

    Many business have that rule where a worker cant go to a competitor…this is not uncommon…And you just don’t “let” niggas go out of they contract…

    I swear niggas on hear don’t know business at all….It baffles me..

    ^This is the only part about this entire story that I find fault with Jay. If you don’t want to fuck with son no more, cool. Don’t fuck with him. But don’t stop that nigga from eating and feeding his family.

    With no union, no benefits or dental plan, I can’t eat off no hundred grand!

  20. yeah me 2 Says:

    *NO SHOTS* But joe88 you seem like 1 of them niggas that will let ya homies rob you, run trains on ya sister, take extra weed out the pizzie niggas went half on and split down the middle, take money out ya pockets, fuck ya babymother…AS LONG AS THEY STILL CALL AND KEEP IT REAL WIT YOU. As long as them niggas is around you giggly and happy but when they split you all depressed and shit.

  21. Peklo Says:

    jay has no rights to beans’ K. that’s erroneous. he gave those up to pursue the roc nation venture. beans’ beef seems unwarranted from a contractual standpoint. i thought it was odd when he was left of bp3 and he probably caught feelings. fuck outta here with that K bullshit, though.
