“When he sent me the song, I sent it back immediately because I didn’t want to keep Wayne waiting. He was like, “Man, you really can rap.” He respected it and sent me like two more songs so I sent those back. I ended up sending three or four songs back to him and then I got him on my first album. We’ve been real cool ever since then. He’s kind of a mainstay on my album. Whenever I’m doing an album, you can expect that Wayne track.”
