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.
