"Don't bet against this guy ever right now!" Joe said in an interview. "He calls me in the middle of the night: 'Come to the studio.' I get there, he pressed play, and everything he played was super-duper phenomenal, number-one [smash]."
Joe, who is currently working on his ninth solo album dubbed 'Nino "Dubs" DeLuca,' went on to say that after Wayne's 'The Carter IV' drops he will be in a league of his own. "They compared him a lot to Jay-Z and you could see where he was influenced," he said. "But after this next album -- I'm not saying he's the best rapper of all time, [but] you can't compare him to any rapper in the world. Because no rapper has done what he's about to do. That's crazy! He's a rock star, man. Hit mania!"
