Lil Wayne and Jay-Z speak with MTV about their upcoming record together, entitled Hello Brooklyn 2.0. Supposedly it was originally planned to be on Wayne’s The Carter III (until Hova said he wanted it haha).
“[Wayne’s camp] sent the record and it was done,” Jay elaborated. “So it wasn’t like a collaboration thing. It was done already. Gee [Roberson] and [Kyambo] ‘Hip Hop’ [Joshua], who came from Roc-A-Fella and went on to do great things — I’m very proud of them — manage Wayne. That whole thing came through them. It’s more of a great record than a lyrical slugfest. It’s more a creative, great record than two guys spitting. ‘Success’ [another American Gangster track] is more of what people wanna look at when you judge that type of [collaborative] stuff. It’s me and Nas going at it.”
Jay also says that he is still making revisions to his upcoming album and mentions a future tour with the entire Roc-A-Fella roster.
