At 40 years old, Lil Wayne has made a name for himself as one of the most well-known and respected rappers in the industry. He continues to release music to this day, his most recent arrivals coming in the form of “THE FORMULA” with will.i.am, as well as March’s I Am Music project. The latter is a career-spanning compilation album, which begins with “Kant Nobody” featuring DMX and also includes appearances from names like Drake, Eminem, Bruno Mars, Kendrick Lamar, and Swizz Beatz. There’s no denying that Weezy has one of the most impressive rosters of collaborators of all time, but it was way back in 2007 when he really hit his stride.
During a sitdown with Missy Elliott for TV One’s Uncensored, the New Orleans native reflected on the year when he put out over 100 features. “That’s unheard of,” the “1, 2 Step” hitmaker applauded Wayne. “You have to have been raking in the dough,” she added. “I was only acknowledged for 77 of them,” the legendary lyricist told his co-star. “I don’t even think there was another artist playing on the radio, dang,” Missy recalled, thinking back to ’07.

“That was real,” Wayne affirmed her memory. “That was an amazing moment and an amazing time. I remember being able to get into my car and turn on the radio. I don’t care if I got the station wrong, could’ve switched to a pop station by mistake, I’m still on that motherf*cker!” the Young Money head proudly praised his past work. Some of his biggest appearances from that time include “We Takin’ Over” with DJ Khaled, Akon, T.I, Rick Ross, Fat Joe, and Birdman, as well as “You” alongside Lloyd.
