Lil Wayne is likely to go down in history as the most active prisoner due to the way he has run Young Money. Ever since March, Wayne has been in prison, but his crew has dominated the 2010 summer. Two years ago, Lil Wayne said it would be like this, but no one believed him.
With Drake and Nicki Minaj dominating the summer, Lil Wayne has sat back and counted the checks. Not only is more money coming in from Young Money, but Lil Wayne is still winning awards. Recently, he won a BMI Award for Songwriter of the Year. Outside of that, he is still working on his ninth album, Tha Carter IV.
Having went from begging for big-name collaborations by challenging the top dogs, people fight to work with Weezy. Ever since his 2008 explosion, Lil Wayne has worked with Jay-Z, Eminem, Kanye West, and Game. While he was able to take over the commercial hip hop game, Wayne had his sights set on recording with one of the underground kings in Tech N9ne.
Finally, Lil Wayne shouted Tech out and he quickly responded and the two met in prison. Right then, the deal was made and Tech N9ne will be recording on Tha Carter IV.
