Posted By on February 2, 2010

     Lil Wayne was just one of 100s of stars who took part in the new remake of "We Are The World" for Haiti. "I've never been involved in anything like this," Lil Wayne said after he recorded his solo for the remake, almost 25 years to the day after the original. "My attitude coming out is I feel blessed and I feel like I've done something today, and that's always a good day."

     Rappers on the song include Snoop Dogg, Kanye West, LL Cool J, Swizz Beatz, T-Pain, Wyclef Jean, Will.I.Am, Busta Rhymes, Kid Cudi, Drake, Nipsey Hussle, Bizzy Bone, Mann and others. "I was like, 'What am I doing here?' " Wayne joked, revealing that he got to sing the part recorded by folk icon Bob Dylan on the original. I was like, 'You guys are real good comedians,' " he laughed. "After I did Bob Dylan's part, it kind of hit me that I guess this is way more important than I could ever imagine."

     Wayne says this experience is something his children can hold on to forever. "I'm still overwhelmed," Weezy said, looking around the room at the galaxy of stars that ranged from Pink and Carlos Santana to Usher and Barbra Streisand. "I was like, 'Where do I fit in?' I thought my name got mixed up."
