Lil Wayne: ‘I Cannot Have Chris Brown Rapping on ‘Tha Carter IV”

Chris Brown and Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is feeling good about his contribution to Chris Brown’s latest single “Look at Me Now.” Weezy loves the song so much that he wanted it on his own album, but explains why it didn’t happen.

In his cover story for Rolling Stone, Wayne revealed that he considered keeping the track for himself, but there was one problem: “I cannot have Chris Brown rapping on Tha Carter IV,” he said.

And it’s not because he wasn’t feeling Breezy’s flow. “He ain’t sound bad. He’s spitting. But come on, man! Do you know how many rappers would be like, ‘I can’t get on Tha Carter IV, but this ni**a put Chris Brown on that bitch? Rapping?” shared the honest MC.

In the end, he decided to let the song remain on Chris’ upcoming album F.A.M.E. “You can’t take a ni**a’s song and take him off of it. That’s saying a whole lot. That’s like telling him, ‘I think this shit is hotter without you,’” admitted Weezy. “I would feel played if a ni**a did me that way.”

    The first person has nothing to do with Ciara, just typed in a name for attention…anyway if he don’t want him on there, then thats his business.

    @ciara Is The Queen…Chris definitely didn’t flop as bad as ciara did. At least Graffiti sold more copies in it’s first week …ciara didn’t even touch that. She barely touched 50,000…when F.A.M.E comes out then start poppin’ off. On 2nd though you’ll still have no room to talk…cuz i ain’t ever seen someone flop like that WITH promotion like she got.

    I THINK CHRIS BROWN IS GOOD AT RAPPING..SOMETIMES MAKES BETTER SINCE THAN SOME OF THESE DUDES THAT RAP RIHT NOW IN THIS INDUSTRY..WHEN I FIRST READ THE HEADLINE..I THOUGHT IT WAS WAYNE SAYING HE DON’T THINK HE CAN RAP..BUT ATLEAST WAYNE EXPLAINED IT IN DETAILS WHY HE DIDN’T WANT CHRIS ON HIS ALBUM RAPPING..

    Whatever. Look at me now is a hell of a track. I replay it all day long. But if Lil Brain can’t face that Breezy is WAY off the chain- fuck him!

    In my opinion I feel Chris Brown is young and doing better than most artists out there. I understand Lil Wayne, but at the same time he better stay tuned because Chris Brown is young and continually learning and so far he’s running circles around many with true gifted talent! I’m positive he could be better with some more years on him and for now I feel everything CB does is THE BEST :) Plus he makes me smile and no other artist does that for me!

    No, Lil Wayne is saying he can’t rap. He can’t rap well enough to be featured on his album. And I agree as well. Idk, IMO I would’ve preferred Look @ Me Now to be Busta’s song minus Chris. Busta Makes the song what it is.

    [Reply]

  16. Look @ Ya

    Why people always worried about what other people think. First off, Lil Wayne and a lot of these rappers take themselves too seriously. I mean come on lol What you doing ain’t that special :)
    As far as Chris Brown goes, if he’s good then he’s good. It shouldn’t matter what who he is. Isn’t Kanye West about to do a song with Justin Bieber? Actually, isn’t Kanye West about to do a song with Kim Kardashian? lol And he claims he is the defender of good music. I’ve never bought a Lil Wayne album but I’m curious to know what kind of amazing rappers will be on this one.

    Ashamed of Chris Brown but rappers love putting Alvin & The Chipmunks on their songs lol

  20. Nuff Said

    Ciara stans have the nerve to talk but yet her album sold plastic in its first week? Fuc outta here. chris was considered a flop when he sold 102,000 copies his first week when Graffiti came out and thats cause stores were blackballing his CD’s. Compared to ciaras 37,000 that aint no flop. 37,000 in one week is the real definition of FLOP!

  22. tiffany

    I find his explanations very weird!
    why this nigga (why they always say nigga???) is looking at the others rappers?who are they to judge LIL WAYNE?? !!!!It disappoints me, I thought he was “crazy” (in a positive way) and did not care about codes . so this is not what we call an artist!!!!

    who will judge him??? nobody can say “chris brown is not a rapper, why he’s acting like a rapper blablabla” fuck you! chris brown did the thing on this work!
    “look at me now” is original,innovative, calm and intensive

    lil wayne was scared because busta killed him ???ahaha , i think dat’s the reason

    at the end, chris got it on his album, congrats, this track will mark his album and lil wayne will by his side do the the same old shit…..always same

    Chris is pretty good. He’s better than a lot of rappers wish they were. Why Wayne decides he has to protect “real” rapper is bs.(mad that he’s doing a better job than many of them, maybe) Without disparaging some that rap nothing but nonsense and call themselves rappers… Chris’ rap is getting attention…kinda scary for them that they boy sings, dances, acts and even raps!

    Chris explained he wasn’t serious about rapping but since they are showing that they’re scared…and when he reads this bs he should practice and perfect it.

    Now Chris, let that be the last time you put this ***** on any of your albums.lol

    Lil Wayne see Chris as little brother, I didn’t take his comments negative. I think he mean’t there are other rappers trying to do collaborations with him for his new album and if he would’ve put Chris on the album that would’ve been a slap in the face of some veteran rappers because Chris is a singer. Chris just starting rapping on his album and he is getting better. I didn’t take Lil Wayne wrong, he has been working with Chris since his Gimmie that days.

    KEEP CIARA’S NAME OUT OF YOUR MOUTHS.

    I love how Ciara is in EVERY post on here.

    Ciara’s new single “Turn It Up” feat. Usher will be released to Pop radio on March 8th. Get ready for her next hit single!

    I love Lil Wayne too. He is completely right about everything he said. Chris is a great singer but a not-so-good rapper.

    In other words.. Lil Wayne don’t think Chris can rap and he don’t want him on his CD because he don’t think some people would buy it. Lil Wayne didn’t want to hurt Chris Brown’s feelings. LOL!

    Chris can NOT rap. Wayne should just keep it real.

    That Look at me now song is generic basic bullshit. That song is not hot and I like chris just would rather he stick with what he does best and stick with making good music. Not this bullshit he has lately that has no staying power. Go back to the meaningful songs chris. You are too talented for this. Comming from a real fan.

  45. Moe

    Hey… don’t get mad at Ciara fans… all of us do not think the same. Plus I think Weezy should not be so worried about what “OTHER” rappers would say. Isn’t he at the top of his career right now? If it is hot…then it is hot. You cannot take away from the song. However it is his song… so he can do whatever he chooses. =)

    people don’t really feel “look at me now” because it’s not commercial!

    Why y’all making a big deal out of Wayne’s comments? He’s right…Chris is not a rapper and it would be unfair to have an RnB singer rapping on your cd Tha Carter no less. He and Chris are boys no shade. Cut it out. LMAO at that Ciara person…you’re sad.

  51. VA 4 Life!!

    Well, I am #TeamBreezy all day, and I am not offended nor do I see anything wrong with what Wayne said. CB and Wayne are cool, this is like the third time they have collaborated and I think they have a good realtionship. I am sure Wayne said it jokingly and meant no harm. CB wouldn’t be offended.

    CB has a nice flow, he’s better than a lot of so called rappers out, but I do wish he would stick to singing. I don’t think that it should be a big deal if he was on the album, but it’s Wayne’s album so he makes the final decision. I don’t think CB is pressed, it’s his record so it will be his hit!
