Birdman Says Prison Changed Lil Wayne’s Rap Style
Written by: Trill Nadia
According to Brian “Birdman” Williams, Lil Wayne has developed an entirely new method of rapping, showcased in the current stages of production on “Tha Carter IV.”
“He brings a different swagger when he steps in the room,” Birdman told The BoomBox. He is the definition of hard work. Doing time played a major part [in his rapping]. It gives us a different outlook as a team. He’s rapping better than ever before — it’s magic. It’s a different energy, its like we feel brand
Within the next couple of weeks, Lil Wayne intends to release a new single off “The Carter IV,” while recording music for future follow-up albums.
“Everybody knows Wayne’s home so you know how this s— is going down. He’s been gone and he’s back so it just feels different but it’s a good feeling. When I watch him work, it just feels like we just started this s—. That’s always been our motivation anyway, to stay fresh.”
A mere few days after his release from Rikers Island prison, Lil Wanye spent a reported 15-hours in a recording session. Wayne will release a new mixtape, prior to the release of “The Carter IV,” which is expected in early 2011. Birdman and Wayne’s “Like Father, Like Son 2″album is expected to release around Father’s Day 2011.
