Lil Wayne is adamant Drake's second studio album "Take Care" will be a huge success. Although the rap mogul hasn't had a chance to listen to all of the songs in the effort, he has already been impressed with what he has heard so far.
"I actually haven't got a chance to listen to all of it, but I heard a few songs," the rapper tells MTV on the set of Birdman's "Y.U. Mad" music video. "I can tell, you know, I don't know nothing else out there that can touch it, including my stuff. That kid is on another planet."
"Take Care" is pushed back from October 24 to November 15 to give Drizzy more time to clear some samples in his new songs. "I do apologize for the delay but I promise that it is only for the benefit of our experience together," the MC once said.
The first taste of the album was offered in a form of a broody single called "Marvin's Room" last summer. The sleep-deprived track which revolves around the rapper drunk-dialing his ex post a break-up earned him mixed responses, but he's unfazed with the criticism.
"If I worried about how I'm gonna look saying this, then I wouldn't make half the music I make," the Canadian rapper stated. "People nitpick at me for being emotional or tapping into emotions, but like, man, we all die one day; that's just how I want to be remembered."
Through his newest collaboration with Nicki Minaj called "Make Me Proud", Drizzy silenced the haters by garnering positive reviews. "Whenever I make songs surrounding women, I always try to find refreshing stances to take as opposed to just like, 'Oh, you're sexy' or 'Oh, I want you'," he recalled the creative process.
He added, "Not even necessarily that a woman has to go achieve grandiose things to be proud; it's just that I'm proud of you for trying. It's hard to be a woman out here these days, especially to be pretty and especially to be smart and want something for yourself. So I'm just proud of you whether it's Nicki or any girl that I've ever known in my life that's doing well for herself."
Beside teaming up with Minaj, Drizzy also joins forces with the likes of The Weeknd, Young Money's Weezy, Stevie Wonder, and OutKast's Andre Benjamin aka Andre 3000.
