In an interview with Acton Entertainment, the rapper shared Weezy’s role alongside Ryan Leslie on the project. Expected to drop sometime this year, Wayne’s role will consist of picking the perfect songs for the album and collaborating on a track with the rapper. “I got Ryan Leslie executive producing it as well as Lil Wayne,” he said. RHQ began working with Leslie last summer.

Despite hints about Leslie’s involvement on the project, the artists only shared hangouts on social media.
