Lil Wayne Channels Busta Rhymes on ‘What You Sayin’
Is the old Weezy back? Lil Wayne returns to form on his new track, "What You Sayin," which appears on DJ Feezy's The Wolf of South Beach mixtape.
The Young Money MC spits over a slower version of Busta Rhymes' classic hit "Put Your Hands Where My Eyes Could See." Before the head-bopping beat reimagined by E Feezy drops, he proclaims, "You can't stop greatness. How you gonna try to reinvent the game when we invented the game?"
Wayne nearly mimics Busta Rhymes' flow with lines like, "Hit you with no delaying so what you sayin' yo / N----s ain't payin' so I just been laying low." He comes into his own later on with "I'm all about famo like Marlon Brando / My bitch go commando, I'm in command though / I hit you ammo, quick as a Lambo / I play with her p---- hole like flipping channels."
And Busta is all for it. The rapid-fire, Brooklyn-bred rapper went to Instagram to express his gratitude and love for his hip-hop fam.
"1st and foremost shout 2 my brothers @LilTunechi and @djEfeezyhh for ALWAYS ridin' wit me and showin' me love and paying homage on one of my Greatest high lighted moments from my catalogue of music and my Legacy!!" Busta wrote in an Instagram post. "Tunechi u have always been my brother in ways that words can't describe thru the Good, the Bad & the indifferent and I greatly appreciate u 4 your greatness and your Genuine friendship aswell LEGEND!!" i
Busta isn't the only person to praise the song. U.K. rapper Lady Leshurr, who named the Young Money leader as one of her greatest influences, tweeted, "I THINK THE OLD WAYNE IS BACK!!"
