Lil Wayne Back Working On Collabo Album With Juelz Santana

Lil Wayne Back Working On Collabo Album With Juelz Santana

According to Mack Maine, Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana are back working on their collabo album called I Can’t Feel My Face. We were supposed to get the collaboration album years ago, but they kept pushing back on releasing it because of “label politics”.

“The next project he’s working on is I Can’t Feel My Face with Juelz Santana,” Maine told XXLMag.com over the phone. “Elz is talented man. He’s a young legend. Wayne’s back working in the studio. He has that and the Young Money album.”

Mack also told XXL that we would get I Can’t Feel My Face before this year ends, along with another YMCMB compilation. He also mentioned that Weezy will be releasing another two Carter albums (Tha Carter V and Tha Carter VI), as well as a sequel to Rebirth sometime in his music career.

“I just figure that I… I’m funky,” he explained. “I got that from my stylist, Marisa. I’m funky, like she say. I wear a whole buncha items at one time, you know what I mean? I be figuring you at least want one of them items. Like, ‘Damn, I’d love to have that safety pin he got on,’ you know what I mean? Anything. I got on these types of shoes, these shorts, this sweater… A year from now, I want all these items to be mine. Rebirth. I want—I just figure people want to be funky like me, so I got my clothing line.”

Lil Wayne Names Features On Tha Carter IV

Lil Wayne Names Features On Tha Carter IV

Lil Wayne let XXL Magazine preview his forthcoming Tha Carter IV album, while they interviewed him for their July/August 2011 issue that will hit newsstands tomorrow (July 12th). They say the Outro on the album will feature Nas, Shyne and Jadakiss, and also say Weezy‘s Young Money crew, Busta Rhymes, Bun B, Tech N9ne, Cee-Lo Green, John Legend, and Will.I.Am will all be featured on different songs on the album. XXL say that Swizz Beatz, Bangladesh, Polow Da Don and Boi-1da all provided beats too!

We won’t know if this list of names are really featured on C4 or not until we get the official tracklist, which hopefully should be soon. I also noticed Rick Ross wasn’t listed as a feature, so maybe “John (If I Die Today)” was scrapped from the album ❓

Lowkey got his hands on the July/August 2011 issue of XXL Magazine (officially hits newsstands on July 12), and posted an excerpt from Wayne‘s interview:

Well, it’s not to late (referring to Justin Timberlake getting on C4). No, it ain’t. I just don’t have the record. These niggas’ beats been sucking. I’m putting it out there: you producers, what y’all doing? Get right, man. Step it up. This is coming from a rapper. One of the best rappers. I ain’t saying I’m the best no more, because these niggas is too good these days. I got old. But damn, y’all niggas’ beats is terrible! [Chad Ochocinco walks into the room] These niggas’ beats sound like Ochocino made them.

I know this interview was done a while back, but I wonder if this could give Weezy‘s Tha Carter IV another push-back ❓ 🙁
