UPDATE: Lil Wayne "You Song" f/ Chance The Rapper (prod. Nate Fox, Peter CottonTale, & Cam (of J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League) (NO TAGS)
The song of the weekend was "You Song" — Chance The Rapper's biggest collaboration to date, as a feature for Lil Wayne and Dedication 5. Now, in a new interview with Complex, we get some deep insight to the creation of the record (I love hearing these stories) and in the process, see how much Wayne trusted Chance to create the song and find out the reason for the last minute pushback of D5 was for this record to be completed. As told by one of the song's producers, Nate Fox:
C: Congratulations, this a huge look. What is the story behind this record?
NF: First of all, it was super, super random. I decided to come out to Chicago just to kick it for a little bit. I really didn't have a reason to be here. And Chance texted me saying "Come to the studio at 11." I get there at 11, and it's me and Peter, Cam, Chance, and Pat, and everybody's there. And he pulls us to the side and he's like "So....we have to make a song for Dedication 5...tonight." We were like, "Ok for sure, whatever you say." And Chance was like, "No, for real, they called me, they said I can send them whatever I want. Not like Wayne has a song for me, Wayne needs a song from me."
Instead of giving him a beat that we already got, or already started on—we wanted to just make something absolutely brand new. It pretty much just started out like Peter [Cottontale] coming up with chords, and everyone just starts putting all their little pieces in. I found that Michael sample and started chopping that up.
C: What's the sample?
NF: It's an a capella of MJ's "The Way You Make Me Feel."
C: So it all happened in one day?
NF: Yeah we started at 11 p.m. and finished at 11 a.m.
C: When was this?
NF: It was Wednesday night. A couple days ago. Actually, I'm pretty sure that's the reason that Dedication 5 got pushed back—because they were waiting on us to send a song. It was almost like it was supposed to happen. All the pieces have been kind of falling into place when it comes to anything, me and Chance related. I don't know why, but the universe is just like, "Yes, this is happening."
C: Lastly, what did you think of Wayne's verse?
NF: I thought it was flames. But we were definitely thinking that's what would happen. People have this preconceived notion of what Wayne raps on these days. So we were all like, "Let's make something that will challenge Wayne again and force him to pull that Tha Carter II shit out of him," and I think we got that.

One of the standout tracks of Lil Wayne's Dedication 5 mixtape has been "You Song" that features Chicago emcee Chance The Rapper. This is a very impressive track because it compliments Chance's style in terms of instrumentals and the music that his fans have become acquainted with. It's good to know how well off Chance has gotten as the most promising emcee in today's current Chicago Hip-Hop youth movement to have linked up with one of Hip-Hop's highest record selling artists of all-time.
Today we got a brand new track from the dynamic duo of Lili K and Peter Cottontale. They're getting ready for the release of their second project My Favorite Things that is dropping July 1st. Lili and Peter really continue to build on their already high skills and this song "Interlude" is just another example. Make sure to support on July 1st.
