Lay It Down

Album: I Am Not A Human Being II (2013)
  • This Diplo produced cut finds Wayne rapping over the TNGHT's "Easy Easy," a track from the electro-rap duo's self-titled EP.

    Canadian producer and DJ Lunice first met Hudson Mohawke when he booked the Scottish electronica artist to perform at one of his Montreal-based "Turbo Crunk" parties in 2008. They formed the group TNGHT and officially debuted with the TNGHT EP, which was released via Warp/LuckyMe on July 23, 2012.
  • Wayne told MTV News that the track brings him back to the late-'90s work of Timbaland and Missy Elliott. "To me it gives me the vibe or the feeling when Tim and Missy were really in that zone," he described. "I loved it. I killed it."
  • Young Money rappers Nicki Minaj and Cory Gunz both contribute verses to the track. Wayne and Minaj are serial collaborators, which include the latter's cuts "Roman Reloaded" and" High School." Bronx-based MC Cory Gunz previously worked with Weezy on his Tha Carter IV single, "6 Foot 7 Foot."
