Lil Wayne Plots Performance With Jay-Z, Tour, Hot Boys Reunion

October 24, 2008 10:51 AM ET

Lil Wayne revealed that he and Jay-Z will perform Tha Carter III cut "Mr. Carter" for the first time live at the Power 105.1's Powerhouse concert in New York on October 28th. "I know the 'Mr. Carter' thing is supposed to be a go," Lil Wayne said. "That's the whole reason I think I was doing [the concert]." Weezy was less sure of a "Swagger Like Us" reunion with Jay-Z, Kanye West and T.I., however. Wayne is also planning on peeling himself out of the studio to go on tour. "It will be a big tour, live band," he said. "I'll be playing with them. We're still trying to find people to get on the tour, but it shouldn't be a problem." M.I.A. had planned to join Wayne on tour, but her pregnancy has forced him to find other tourmates. The ever-busy new father is also planning on reuniting with his Hot Boys co-horts, Juvenile and B.G., as the pair joined Wayne in the studio recently.

“Stillness Is the Move”

Dirty Projectors | 2009

A Wim Wenders film and a rapper inspired the Dirty Projectors duo David Longstreth and Amber Coffmanto write "sort of a love song." "We rented the movie Wings of Desire from Dave's brother's recommendation, and he had me go through it and just write down some things that I found interesting, and they made it into the song," Coffman said. As for the hip-hop connection, Longstreth explained, "The beat is based on T-Pain. We commissioned a radio mix of the song by the guy who mixes all of Timbaland's records, but the mix we made sounded way better, so we didn't use it."
