Dear Anne (Stan Part 2) – Lil WaynePosted: June 14, 2011
So Swizz Beatz and Lil Wayne have released a new song, ‘Dear Anne (Stan Part 2). Apparently Swizz Beatz approached Lil Wayne with the concept of reinterpreting Eminem’s classic, ‘Stan’. Wayne accepted and throughout the song writes a letter to his number one fan over the minimalist beat. In Em’s song Stan writes constantly to his favorite artist obsessively until, since Slim Shady never writes him back, he commits a murder suicide over his obsession. Lil Wayne decided to use the opportunity to write from his own perspective, to his number one fan, in an effort to prevent Anne from experiencing the same fate as Stan.
It’s pretty well known I’m not a Lil Wayne fan, but he inconsistently drops some pretty good tunes, even some awesome ones occasionally and this ones one of those good Lil Wayne songs.
