Lil Wayne to record rock album

    Lil Wayne’s skills as a guitarist may be extremely limited, but that’s not stopping him from heading in a new rock direction. Like Ice-T before him, Wayne has got a taste for the rock, and is allegedly recording an entire album that will no doubt make Chinese Democracy sound like Simon and Garfunkel.

    "Wayne’s coming out with a new album, it’s a rock album. A complete rock album," says Canadian rapper Drake, in an interview with MuchMusic. "I have a song on there. It’s something different in just that whole 808’s and Hearbreaks, just throwing individuals off."

     

    It’s unclear when (or even if) this project will surface. But hopefully Wayne will recruit a few guest players if his plan comes to fruition. The thought of Wayne jamming with the likes of Jimmy Page, Slash, or Angus Young are pretty tantalizing. Especially if the hip-hop star dons Young’s classic schoolboy outfit. [MuchMusic]
