#TBT 2010: Weezer Discuss Working With Lil Wayne

In 2009, Weezer released a silly pop-punk record called Ratitude. On it was the surprising single "Can't Stop Partying," featuring Lil Wayne. It was a weird marriage, but one that worked.

In an old school Fuse interview, we had to ask: Why Wayne of all the rappers in the world? "It was a suggestion with the co-songwriter with [frontman] Rivers [Cuomo] who was Jermaine Dupri," guitarist Brian Bell explained. "He suggested it. I think Rivers is a fan of his, and it was that simple."

When asked about what it's like to work with Weezy, the band launched into a series of jokes. We won't spoil them for you. Watch the interview above!
