Rapper adds to Raditude

Lil' Wayne will make a guest appearance on the new Weezer album, according to the band's frontman Rivers Cuomo.

Speaking to MTV News, he described the track as "dark" and revealed that the rapper had given it an extra "edge".

He said: "We got Lil Wayne to come in and do a rap on it. Any other rapper would've just done, 'Yay, we're partying! Let's drink and have fun,' but he gave it the edge I was looking for.

"You can hear in his voice, it sounds so dark, like he was gonna get shot or something when he walks out of the studio. So I was real happy that everyone involved got what we were going for."
