Swizz Beatz Gives ‘Anne’ to Lil Wayne, Produces for ‘Watch the Throne’

Swizz Beatz and Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne’s long-awaited collaboration with Swizz Beatz has alluded fans, but it’s finally been tracked down. The Eminem-inspired record called “Anne” has been claimed by Weezy.

Originally set to appear on Swizz’ Haute Living album, the track was given to the Young Money rapper in exchange for a verse on Swizz’ “Rock ‘N’ Roll” single, the super-producer told Rap-Up.com at a recent listening. While unconfirmed, “Anne” may find a home on Tha Carter IV.

On the nostalgic song, for which a snippet leaked, Wayne tells Anne he’s sorry what happened to Stan. Swizz initially submitted “Anne” for Eminem’s Relapse album under the title “Stan 2.”

He also revealed that he has contributed a big beat for Jay-Z and Kanye West’s joint album Watch the Throne and was recently in the studio with M.I.A., completing five to six songs for both their projects.

Find out what else Swizz Beatz has in store on Haute Living in our album preview.

    @Abdullah, if that is your opinion, then fine, but as a fact, lets put eminem and “weezy” in a freestyle battle or even go head to head with their records, surely eminem would win due to his range in vocals, subject matter, etc.

    why do you people always write in caps. Are you guys supposed to be yelling with caps locked? No wonder why nobody takes you seriously when you write in all caps. ‘You’re scaring us with your caps locked’, is that what ya’ll think? Really? There will always be an idiot who feels the need to write in caps to try to make a point when in fact he just looks stupid. I’m sorry but that’s reality

    I think this was recorded before he went to prison, because Swizz Beatz talked about it in 2010. Also I hope “John” was recorded before he went to prison because it was fucking horrible and if the rest of Tha Carter IV sounds like that it will be complete shit.

    eminem raps with the same flow on almost every song….his style is boring cuz he sounds the exact same every time he spits…… wayne could spit dat fast and slow flow…. he’s not on wayne’s level of creativity! especially with the dope metaphors and punchlines…..just wait till C4 drops tho!!!

    @spzy, loool how many records has em sold? how much impact has he put on the game? wtf makes weezy so creative when he raps about the same fucking thing everytime? EXACTLY why hes on the radio kus its the same shit over and over agian…which is exactly what radio music requirements are…learn a couple thing about hip hop before you speak fool. oh and another its QUALITY not quantity id rather have a rapper have fewer songs that they pour their soul in then thousands with 70% of them being half sober murmering about their skater swag and buggatti veyron lol. peace

    but yall dont understand, weezy’s rap style is not like em’s!!! weezy focuses on metaphors and punchlines about materialistic stuff, while em just focuses on life…..but who has more connection to fans???? DAM SURE WEEZY!!!! em only makes mainstream shit,and weezy makes mainstream, mixtape, rock(used to), and more…and besides, lil wayne proved that he is capable of making music that makes “sense”. remember the shit he made for Michael Phelps??? there was not one line about violence in dat song!!!! so, YMCMB ALL DAY BRUHHHHHHH!!!!

    CJ The Kid Reply:

    @K-Freshhz, while I do concur that Weezy’s style isn’t like Em’s (though it can be argued that it was influenced by Em’s style), your argument doesn’t make sense. If Em raps about life, and Weezy raps about materialistic stuff, then, naturally, who would fans relate to more? I personally can’t relate to grandiose, bacchanalian living standards. Weezy HAS made songs that had meaning (“La La La,” etc.), but the capability to make meaningful songs alone won’t cement your legacy as “the best rapper alive.” You gotta be consistently meaningful, especially if you are one of the ones touting the “hip-hop is alive” banner.
