Gone Till November: A Journal Of Rikers Island is scheduled to drop October the 11th; although it’s right around the corner, Lil Wayne still has time to reflect upon the verse he spit for Drake over the phone.
“Tez [Cortez Bryant] was like, ‘We want you to be on Drake’s remix.’ I was like, ‘How?’ And he was like, ‘We’re going to do it over the phone.’ I’m like, ‘Shit … I don’t have anything else better to do up in this bitch, so let’s go!’ After I finished running it, I was kinda nervous on how it was going to be received. This was the first time that I haven’t been in the studio to hear the playback before a song goes out.”
It was this beat that made Wayne realize that his time in was his time out to produce, and that he could still rap and create beats while stuck there in jail.
“Nothing else that happened today mattered,” Wayne wrote. “Nothing can touch how happy I am. My creativity is at an all-time high right now! I’m actually looking forward to tomorrow.”
