Cool & Dre Talk Lil Wayne’s Rebirth

Posted By on April 27, 2009

    After first being promoted as Lil Wayne's "Rock" album, then later denied to be rock by Cash Money's Birdman, producer-team Cool & Dre talk about the new album. "The best way to describe the Rebirth record is that it’s a Lil Wayne record," Cool’s partner Dre said. [watch here] "It’s where Lil Wayne is right now in his life and career — he’s expressing himself musicalso everybody is like, ‘He’s putting out a rock album and he’s only. ‘Prom Queen’ came out and that’s a rock record and the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.’ Yeah, there’s some rock records on there, but there’s also some records where he’s rapping. It’s a Lil Wayne album. It’s what you expect from Lil Wayne, where he’s at creatively." [watch here]

    "It’s almost like where Outkast was when they made Aquemini," he continued. [watch here] "It’s still a rap album, but was it really a rap album compared to all the other rap albums at that time? André Benjamin was evolving artistically to where he’s at now — Wayne is doing the same thing, and he’s not afraid to show you his growth. It’s one thing we respect about him, and we feel it’s something that everybody else should respect about him … hes shows no fear. To put himself out there, you’re watching someone as they progress in their career." [watch here]
