Lil' Wayne to Remix Betterman

On November 4th, Lil' Wayne will release Weezy's 90's Ball, Volume One, an album of remixs and mashups album that pairs Lil' Wayne with 90s rock hits from Nirvana, Radiohead, Stone Temple Pilots, and opens with some Pearl Jam!  

"Because Lil Wayne's flow is so melodic, it sits incredibly well on top of rock tracks," says Alexei. "And while I loved Rebirth, many fans will probably enjoy this 'rock album' a bit more because Wayne is rapping, rather than singing with the help of auto-tune."

On the album, Alexei both reinterprets old Lil Wayne hits and combines Weezy's numerous -- and, in some cases, obscure -- feature verses to create new songs. Musically, the album is divided into tracks that retain the rock sensibility of the source material and hip-hop-influenced tracks on which Alexei combines samples of 90s rock with hip-hop drums. In both cases, the resulting songs stand out in their intensity and impact.
