Last night on Jimmy Kimmel, Lil Wayne dropped this bombshell: He, personally, is the one playing guitar on “Prom Queen,” his new single. Surely that can’t possibly be true, right? We didn’t exactly love the track, but if it’s him, we’re impressed — that’s Wayne turning in those Alternative Press-cover-worthy guitars? He’s certainly come far since last summer, when Pitchfork charitably hailed his playing as “terrible.” The video for “Prom Queen” is out, too, and you know what? He almost does look like he knows what he’s doing, sort of! Remarkable.
