Kanye West and Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne Thanks Kanye West for ‘Ultimate Compliment’

Kanye West bestowed the highest praise upon Lil Wayne when he declared him the best rapper in the world, and now Weezy is returning the compliment.

During an interview with DJ Enuff on “The Angie Martinez Show,” Kanye hailed the Young Money boss. “I think that [Lil] Wayne is the number one rapper in the world,” proclaimed the G.O.O.D. Music chief.

Moments later, a humbled Weezy took to Twitter to respond with some flattering words of his own. “That’s the ultimate compliment coming from a humble,great,extremely creative,& superior genius…I appreciate that Yeezy!” he tweeted.

Kanye and his creative team DONDA designed the artwork for Wayne’s upcoming album I Am Not a Human Being II. Due March 26, the project features appearances from Nicki Minaj, Big Sean, Drake, Future, 2 Chainz, Juicy J, Gunplay, and more.

Meanwhile, Wayne has postponed his European arena tour until October in order to promote the album. Mac Miller will still join him on the road, but 2 Chainz has pulled out due to a scheduling conflict.

“I am rescheduling to my European tour in order to release my album, I Am Not A Human Being II, worldwide on March 26th,” said Wayne in a statement. “I didn’t want my tour or album to be rushed, so despite my best hopes, I have made the decision to push back the tour to October 2013.”
