Drake revealed to MTV on the set of his video “Fancy” that Lil Wayne called him from jail to give him a sneak preview of verses from the forthcoming Carter IV album.
He called me the other day from jail and rapped me two verses, man,” Drake said. “It really made me, like, ‘I gotta do something different. I gotta get sh– together,’ because he’s really got bars and he’s rapping from a broader life perspective, saying these things people love to hear.
Drake also revealed that, although he wasn’t aware of the title of Weezy’s September EP I’m Not A Human Being at the time, he’s definitively a featured guest.
