Lil' Wayne has been pretty much under the radar, for him at least, since his November release from Rikers Island, where the New Orleans rapper spent eight months for the crime of putting out really awful rock crossover singles. ("Drop the guitar, Weezy, and put your hands in the air.")
But the wait is over: Wayne will soon be taping NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly celebration, where he'll share a stage with Nicki Minaj. He's also just released a new single to the Internet called "6'7," and you can hear it here.
Mercifully, Weezy's not trying to rock out this time. So even if "6'7" doesn't stack up to his early work, at least it won't get him sent back to prison.
