Check Out: Lil Wayne – “Dear Anne (Stan Part 2)”

on June 13, 2011, 4:55pm

In life, it’s not about what you do, but how you do it. Take, for instance, Eminem and Lil Wayne and their “odes” to their adoring fans. Eminem’s classic “Stan” is a haunting look at the perils of fame and the dangers of obsession. Following in his buddy/collaborator‘s footsteps, Weezy continued to open up  to the world on a whole new level of artist-fan interaction with the track “Dear Anne (Stan Part 2)”.

In the Swizz Beatz-produced track, which reportedly didn’t make the final Tha Carter IV tracklist, Tunechi writes a letter to a fan whilst someone gently tickles the ivories (the cut samples t.A.T.u’s “30 Minutes”). But while Em’s version was a reality check, Wayne’s letter sees him pour his heart out to his No. 1 fan in regards to his own obsessions and unrelenting efforts. Between this and “How To Love”, we’re starting to think Weezy is leaving the sizzurp behind for good.

Check out the track below, via Miss Info. Tha Carter IV *tentatively* hits stores August 29th via Cash Money Records.
