Lil Wayne's collaboration hopes
Lil Wayne hopes to collaborate with Andre 3000 when he is released from prison.
The incarcerated rapper - who is currently serving a one-year jail sentence on gun charges at New York's Rikers Island prison -hasn't been listening to music in his cell but he has thought about which artists he would like to work with when he is freed in November.
He told New York's Hot 97 radio station: "I've been saying to myself that I really want to do a song with either Andre 3000 or I really like my man Tech N9ne from the West Coast.
"I'll be very honest, I don't listen to no music. All I listen to all day, if I am listening to anything, is sports. And that ain't because of nothing, just the simple fact that I've never listened to anyone else's music but my own, and since I'm not able to do that up in here, I don't listen to anything. I don't listen to nothing but my thoughts."
The 'Lollipop' hitmaker admitted he has been "amazed" by the support his fans - and fellow rapper Eminem - have offered him while he serves out his prison term.
He said: "It's been more than amazing. I promise that I can't explain the love and support I've been getting from my fans. I never knew it was like that, and I've been doing this for, what, 16 years? It's breathtaking.
"As far as Eminem the dude, he's a great dude. He's been keeping up with me since I've been in here, and I appreciate his support."Posted on 4 Aug 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
