Hear Lil Wayne's First Post-Prison Track

Weezy appears on two guest verses on new Birdman song 'Fire Flame'

November 16, 2010 9:53 AM ET

It's probably not the brand-new song his manager told Rolling Stone about last week, but Lil Wayne's first post-prison music has hit the web in the form of two guest verses on Birdman's "Fire Flame": "Fresh out from my bid, bitch, it's Lil Tunechi. I Lucille Ball, bitch I love Lucy/ If these n---as [are] dogs, I'm animal cruelty/ Don't fuck with me at all, 'cause I'm twisted like a Rubik's cube/ Oh my, look how the time has flown/ And they say time is of the essence, but what if their clock is wrong?"

The track was posted on DJ Khaled's We the Best TV blog on Monday. The song, which had leaked online earlier without Wayne's verses, is expected to appear on the next Birdman/Wayne joint LP.

Wayne spent the first few days after his release from prison on November 4 celebrating, visiting family and joining Drake onstage in Las Vegas. But by last Tuesday he was back in the studio logging a 15-hour-long session. On Thursday, Wayne manager Cortez Bryant told Rolling Stone that Wayne had already finished a song. "We're trying to put it out, like, tomorrow," he said. "We got a crazy song. If not tomorrow, definitely next week."

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
