Songfacts®:

  • Apparently it is mere coincidence that Lil Wayne's ninth studio album, Tha Carter IV, contains tracks titled both "How To Love" and "How To Hate." The latter was given to Weezy by T-Pain. The Tallahassee native told Billboard magazine, "Without knowing it, Wayne wrote a song called 'How To Love' and I wrote him a song called 'How To Hate;' we were in the same studio, but completely across the parking lot from each other and writing the songs at the same time. It was weird."
