Canadian rapper Drake said in a recent interview that Weezy's new album is a major musical departure and compared it to the latest effort from Kanye saying "It's something different in just that whole 808's and Hearbreaks, just throwing individuals off."
Lil Wayne's last album, Tha Carter III, is certified multi-platinum and earned the New Orleans rapper eight Grammy nominations, the most of any artist. Wayne will join Jay-Z, T.I. and Kanye West to perform "Swagga Like Us" at the 51st annual Grammy Awards on February 8th. Other artists set to join the party include Paul McCartney, Radiohead and Justin Timberlake, who will perform with T.I.
