Lil Wayne Calls From Prison To Surprise Drake On MTV’s ‘The Seven’
Perhaps feeling the loss of TRL, MTV’s new daily show The Seven kicked off yesterday with guests Justin Timberlake, Drake and—surprise—Lil Wayne, who phoned in from Rikers Island to talk about his just-released digital album I Am Not A Human Being and surprise his friend and “Gonorrhea” collaborator Drizzy. Watch clips after the jump.
“The album was totally fun, because I love recording,” Weezy told host Kevin Manno. “That’s what I love to do next to breathing, so I made sure I had some material before I came in here to release while I was in here.”
Wayne, who rang in on his 28th birthday, continued, “A day, I get about 150 pieces of mail—I read about 30. I think at least I got a million pieces of mail.”
Next up MTV surprised guest Drake with both a taped video of lip sync aficionado Snooki expressing her love for the singer, and a phone call from Wayne. Guess which one Drizz was actually excited for?
Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being was released yesterday and is currently the #1 album on iTunes.
