Lil Wayne Addresses Gun Charges in New Track
On the new track ‘That’s What N—– Do,’ Lil Wayne finally opens up about his impending prison sentence. Last October, Wayne pleaded guilty to a weapons charge stemming from an arrest in New York City after a search by police turned up a loaded, unregistered handgun in the rapper’s possession. In exchange for his guilty plea Dwayne “Lil Wayne” Carter is expected to receive a one year prison sentence and begin serving his time in February, 2010.
While Weezy has remained pretty tight-lipped to the media about his feelings toward his first incarceration to date, the track ‘That’s What N—– Do’ certainly clears up any media generated preconceptions, “They wanna lock me up and throw away the key/I wanna pop ‘em up and throw away the heat,” raps Wayne on the songs opening bars. Accompanied by some haunting Tupac vocals from his previously released ‘Thug Angels’ DVD, the track channels the rebel spirit of the fallen rapper. “I’m not going to change cuz a muthaf—- got money,” the Tupac sample plays before the beat drops in.
‘That’s What N—– Do’ was originally premiered by KarenCivil.com earlier this afternoon with no other official release information. With the track being a little more than two minutes in length, it will most likely appear on an upcoming mixtape from rapper.
