Lil Wayne Keeps Himself Busy

lilwayneYou think Lil Wayne has just been sitting around worrying about whether or not his upcoming prison term will cost him his hair? Think again. Apparently he has a new mixtape, No Ceilings, set to come out this week; one track that’s leaked from it so far is his freestyle over Jay-Z’s Rihanna/Kanye collab “Run This Town,” which is after the jump.

Not bad, not great. I am curious to see if he flips any current pop hits in the vein of his awesome “Maneater” flip from a few years back. In other Weezy news, his highly bloggable collaboration with Weezer and Jermaine Dupri, “Can’t Stop Partying,” has made its way online:

Kind of a dirgey 3OH!3-ish beat for a song that’s supposed to be about partying, no? I mean, I get the overall motif Weezer’s going for here, but I also am starting to wonder if these sonics are one of the long-term effects of combining cheap, sweet alcohol with antidepressants. Maybe Rivers should have called in Andrew WK instead of JD?
