The title of “hook singer” has become synonymous with several artists over the last few years, most notably (but certainly not limited to) Akon, T-Pain, Trey Songz and Sean Kingston. Having mastered the “featured guest verse” title through of all of 2007 and now more than half of 2008, it seems as though Lil’ Wayne might be once again expanding his resume. On the newest release off The Game‘s forthcoming album, L.A,X., My Life, Wayne provides a sung chorus (a la Duffle Bag Boyz) with the help of that mischievous (and quite popular) voice box. Over soundtrack-worthy production courtesy of Cool & Dre, both artists sound at home and compliment one another nicely. After countless delays, the release of L.A.X. is currently pegged to occur at the end of August.
