Lil Wayne Covers Rolling Stone Magazine

For a decade, Lil Wayne has been hip-hop’s great unstoppable force, a 24-hour-a-day recording machine without an off button. But on February 9th, Lil Wayne will have to stop — for 12 months, when he reports to prison to serve a sentence for gun possession stemming from a 2007 arrest in New York City. Rolling Stone stays up all night with Weezy as he prepares to get locked down in our new issue, which is on sale at newsstands today.

“I don’t like to stop,” Wayne tells RS‘ Chris Norris. “I believe you stop when you die.” So in the weeks before he reports to Rikers Island, Wayne is keeping busy — recording tracks bound for Tha Carter IV (the album Cash Money staffers call “C4″ because it’ll be the bomb), shooting videos with his Young Money protégés, spending time with his growing family, and deliberately not asking anyone for advice about life on the inside. “This is Lil Wayne going to jail. Nobody I can talk to can tell me what that’s like,” he says. “I just say I’m looking forward to it.”

While Weezy’s away, his label is relocating to New York to be near him, and his manager Cortez Bryant is exploring ways to keep Wayne in his fans’ minds for the duration — from jailhouse Twitter accounts to endorsements. “I’ll have an iPod, and I”ll make sure they keep sending me beats,” Lil Wayne says. Tha Carter IV — which Norris is told features tougher, faster beats — is scheduled to arrive shortly after he gets out.

Read the full story in the new issue for Wayne’s comments on giving up drank, growing older and fearing God, plus a close-up look at one of his intense late-night recording sessions.

Source: Rolling Stone, and it looks like we will be getting Tha Carter IV shortly after Lil Wayne gets out from prison. I also like how Weezy will be using using Twitter from jail (if that’s what they mean).

  • YMCMB

    Why the hell would the feds put the best musician of the decade behind bars on bs weed charges. Also YM made like 100 million in 2009 and would have done the same in 2010 if wayne was free, the gov wont get to take there f’n 40% of waynes income. Smart move you just lost 40 million because of your B.S weed charges and made alot of fans mad.

  • rafa-atl

    @^..please press the back button and get the fuck out you hatter..yu da fake ass mtf..i bet all you do is talk shit…

  • jake

    can’t wait for “single” music video, can’t wait for tha carter IV, can’t wait for “drop the world” video, can’t wait for “we are the world remake”, cant wait for drizzy and em comp, cant wait for travis barker and weezy comp, cant wait for “back to guddaville”, cant wait for “the flood”, cant wait for drizzy’s “thank me later”, can’t wait for lil twist and lil chuckee “girl i gotchu” video, cant wait for wayne to get out, hopefully 8 months flies by, enough of that, everyone who says waynes a “fake” blood:
    1. if he was a “fake” blood, i’m sure he would’t be much alive right now
    2. if you regard game as a blood, and you damn sure better cuz he is, then how are you gonna regard wayne as “fake” if game tells yall weezy is a blood
    3. you can be blessed into the bloods, meaning if someone that’s a blood likes wayne, and knows him, he can be a blood w/o question.

    haters gonna hate, it’s what keeps wayne motivated, keep talkin shit and wayne will keep gettin paid, that’s all there is to it.
    to add to the dumass comment above me, wayne isnt goin to jail on “weed”(im sure you meant possession charges you ignorrant bitch) he’s goin to jail on possesion of an illegal firearm, there was a gun in the tour bus, they found weed too, but dropped the charges on that and found him guilty of the firearm, they found little DNA of waynes on the gun, Tez (waynes manager) publicly announced it was his own gun, but since it was waynes tour bus, it was waynes responsibility.
    and anyways, it’s only 8 months, i know people in jail for years on the same charges, he’ll be out in no time, we won’t even see much of a difference, why you think wayne is loading us with music, he loves his fans.
    luckily [jae] Millz, as long as he keeps his word, will be comin out w/ a mixtape every month this year, i promise you, everything comin out this year from the YM/CM fam will be plenty to keep us occupied while lil wayne is in jail.
    carter IV is comin out after he gets out.
    hope this answers everyones questions.
    if you read it, thank you, lemme know how you feel bout what i said
    if not, fuck you, get a life 😉 (rebirth song)

    Really? They Will Let Him Keep His Dreads!? That’s Really Cool, I’d Hate Them If They Would Cut Them Off, : /

  • DJTzizzle

    Ok, Wayne is about to have an ipod while in jail. He is gonna be the best Musician of all time after he get out. If he is going to be makin songs and raps while in jail…just think about the time he has. And nyway, he safer in there than out on the streets. Plus, Cortez And birdman has said he has enough unreleased music to keep us occupied through out the 8 months. When he gets out be expecting the C4 and a Mixtape…Guranteed.)

  • Yeah, we all waiting for the Detox LP waaaaaaay too much. Dre said in an interview for ABC News that Detox should be done in 2009 and released at 2010.

  • jake

    lol dre said detox was comin when Em came out with Encore, i’ve stopped hoping for Detox so i don’t have to be disappointed when it keeps getting pushed back, if wayne can come out with 5 songs a day and shoot about 2 videos a day all before he goes to jail and have time to party his ass off, i don’t see why dre cant release detox. waynes even started on the drought is over 7, shit is crazy, it’s making me more and more excited for C4
