Mack Maine Speaks On Tha Carter IV Push Back, The Cover & More

Fri, Apr 22, 2011 by

In the video above, Mack Maine speaks on Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV album cover, the reason why C4 was pushed back, and says Weezy has a “monster” single coming soon with a major group… but Mack would not tell us who the group is.

“It’s more along the lines of a ‘Lollipop,’ ” Mack told MTV News. “People call them crossover records and all of that, but it will be just one of those records that will be liked by the masses.”

While Mack wouldn’t reveal who the guest feature will be on the untitled single, he did say that he expects the news to be leaked prior to the song’s release. The YM prez also spoke on the decision to push back the album.

“He’s still perfecting a few things, he’s a perfectionist … changing a few lines,” Mack Maine said of Wayne’s recording process. “We also have a huge record that wasn’t done yet. We’re in L.A. right now. We have a little studio time and it should be done probably by Monday.” – MTV

  • Tha Carter IV’s next single, which he compares to Weezy’s 2008 hit “Lollipop,” featuring the late Static Major. “It’s more along the lines of a ‘Lollipop,’ ” he said. “People call [them] crossover records and all of that, but [it will be] just one of those [records] that will be liked by the masses.”

  • mr.simpson

    in the end mack said: “you would never expect him to collab with this group, OR THIS GENRE, or anyhting”

    that probably means its something totally different than what we are used to. its something we would never expect like he said.

  • LA

    I dont listen to country but that is the only genre he havent put his feet in. Whats that he/she name manson?

  • Shane

    @effuhaterz if he rapped over dubstep i would shit my pants. i was at a mimosa show and he mixed in 6’7′ it was fucking ILL


  • daknite

    its N.E.R.D

  • oh3

    It’s is ether a pop group or rock group because “crossover means crossing genres”


    You guys are dumb, Odd Future is not satanist.

  • Wayyyyyne

    I’m guessing and fergi cuz will did a song with nicki and he kinda reminds me of static major

  • Tune(Man on the Moon)

    black eyed peas + weezy would be cool but just if they take a rap beat, not a beat!!!!!
    green day + weezy would sucks
    linkin park + weezy would be cool if linkin part rap on it but if it will be like waiting to for the end it would be bad!
    G.O.O.D. + weezy would be the best groop with weezy but it should not be the mainstream single!!!

  • PHDaj

    its not bone thugs fools its gonna be somethin weird and he doesnt say the feature is gonna be the monster single either.

  • david

    dadication 4 aslo

  • CIV

    Weezy and G.O.O.D. would be amazin. Only if Wayne can go back to the C2 days.

  • K.S.

    LMFAO…….its because someone got the better verse on a track that Wayne RMX
    so he got to rethink his lines closer,however y’all all wrong he’s doing a track with the good old Dr Dre

  • devintune

    no think the group is lonely island

  • Tunechi


  • The Prestige

    How much you wanna bet the group is Black eyed peas…….which if it is should be a high selling single like lollipop and 56 foot 7 being tha carter 4’s A milli…..I bet the album sells a lot……….cuz now black eyed pea fans will be listening……..thats why people want star guest features……he has ross on his album drake nicki minaj jay z eminem and kanye west….

  • The Prestige

    In a interview with Rolling stones he said he had a single called waynes world that will make rappers want to quit or hang it up……rolling stones said its 3 straight minutes of wordplay its supposed to be on the carter 4 its probably like that song Yeah…that he put out a couple years ago that song was CRAZY


  • Seany P

    The group is clearly slaughterhouse.

  • rjizzzzzzzzle

  • KS

    #all y’all wrong……lmafo i called my G’s Frank Ocean up in cali, he explained HodgyBeats of Odd Future is working on three tracks for wayne,wayne previously recorded them but he wanted a better producer

  • Kieran_Ymcmb_Canada

    K These are the Best so far:
    -G.O.O.D. Music Especially Big Sean, Pusha T & Common
    – J. Cole
    – Wiz Khalifa Anyone?
    -Bone Thugs wouldnt work, Krazie Bone Left the Group Last week, FOR REAL
    – DR. DRE!!??!?! Maybe Not for C4 but maybe Detox
    -WU-Tang Lol We wish
    – DMX
    -50 CENT
