Lil Wayne’s Homage To Eminem’s Stan


Anne is Lil Wayne’s Stan – expect she’s a female. Dear Anne (Stan Part 2) was originally supposed to be on Tha Carter IV but has since then been removed from the album. On July 8, 2011, producer Swizz Beatz hinted at Weezy possibly re-recording a new version of Anne, after he said the verses were too old. 

Swizz originally made the beat many years ago, titled Stan II for Eminem but Em never used the track. As it seems Lil Wayne decided to re-record the song, where he raps: “Dear Anne…I’m sorry about Stan, So I wrote this to say that I’m your number one fan”. Listen to the song below: 

 

Stan is one of the greatest songs of all time. Acknowledged by a lot of Magazines like XXL, Rolling Stone, Spin and Complex. Thank God two years later, in 2013, Eminem dropped The Marshall Mathers LP2, the sequel of his classic The Marshall Mathers LP which consists a song titled Bad Guy which is the continuation of Stan and one of the best songs that Eminem has made recently. No offence to Weezy’s version of the song but Stan is a type of song that must be untouchable. Listen to Bad Guy below:

I’m not sure if there is anyone who don’t know which song are we talking about but in case you didn’t know, listen to the legendary Stan below:
