Lil’ Wayne Raps on New Weezer Album

Provided by Pitchfork

No matter what you think about Weezer in 2009, you have to admit: their new album, Raditude, has piqued your curiosity. I mean, just based on the insane album title and cover alone, right?

Now, one more reason to want to hear it: Lil Wayne raps on the thing.
According to an MTV News report, the rock-leaning MC lays down some vocals on the Jermaine Dupri-produced track “Can’t Stop Partying”. (An early version of the song appeared on the Rivers Cuomo vault-clearing comp Alone II last year.)

“Any other rapper would’ve just done, ‘Yay, we’re partying! Let’s drink and have fun,'” Rivers told MTV. “But [Wayne] gave it the edge I was looking for. You can hear in his voice, it sounds so dark, like he was gonna get shot or something when he walks out of the studio.”

Raditude is out November 3 courtesy of Geffen — pushed back a week from October 27. As MTV reports, it also features collaborations with members of All-American Rejects and producers/song doctors Butch Walker and Dr. Luke.
