"People have to be careful because I know people were expecting to see what they were going to say on my first album, my first Lil Wayne album [since I got out of prison ].I'm pretty sure everyone who's done a feature [before] as soon as I get it home it's gone because I've got Wayne here. 'He just got home, let's get it out' , like 'I want to know what you're talking about on your first record'. And you say joy at the end. It's like you're obligated, you have to listen to this. I said that anyone who listened to Cory Gunz [dijeran] didn't know, 'Who is he?'".
