Lil Wayne Interview Excerpt From XXL Magazine x Pics From Photo Shoot

Here, we have an excerpt from XXL Magazine‘s interview with Lil Wayne for their July/August 2011 issue that will be on newsstands tomorrow (July 12th), and some pics from their photo shoot! You can view the photos below, along with the excerpt were Weezy talks about celebrating with the Mavericks, Tha Carter IV, writing, being a father, and retiring.

Here at Miami’s Hit Factory recording studio, where the Young Money rapper is chilling with his crew, everybody cracks up as a camera-phone photo is passed around the room. The picture is of Lil Wayne, who bursts out laughing himself.

Taken last night, Sunday, June 12, the picture shows the international rap superstar and Young Money Entertainment owner standing with one hand on his hip and the other around the NBA’s Larry O’Brien Championship Trophy—which had just been won by Dirk Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavericks, with whom he happened to be partying in celebration at Club Liv in Miami Beach.

“We had fun,” says Wayne of his night with Dirk and Jason Kidd and Jason Terry and team owner Mark Cuban, who brought the trophy to the club. “Y’all know I’m a Laker fan. They knocked my Lakers out pretty terribly. So, you know, I’m coming from the old school. I’m old-fashioned. Can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Before the postseason, people ask you, ‘Who you pick?’ I picked the Lakers. When your team loses, they say, ‘Who you pick?’ You pick the team that beat your team. That’s who I’d picked. I had picked Dallas in six. They did that. And like I said, they were in the club last night. We chilled. We had fun with Dirk. We did. We kicked it with Mark. The trophy came around a few times to our section. We took a few pictures with it, you know, all in fun. Everybody just had fun, enjoyed themselves.”

Wayne, who moved to Miami from his hometown, New Orleans, six years ago, has had The Hit Factory booked out for his Young Money/Cash Money family since November, and as usual, he can’t wait to record. The long-delayed, hugely anticipated sequel to 2008’s three-million-selling Tha Carter III is finally in the can—with beats from the likes of Bangladesh, Polow Da Don, Swizz Beatz and Boi-1da; features from Busta Rhymes, Bun B, will.i.am, Cee Lo, John Legend, Tech N9ne and, of course, Wayne’s Young Money crew; plus an album-closing posse cut with Shyne, Jadakiss and Nas. But Tha Carter IV won’t be in stores ’til August, so tonight the tatted-up MC is focused on a mixtape, Sorry 4 the Wait, that he will release in the meantime. He’s three songs in and wants to record two more tonight. But it’s a hectic atmosphere at the studio. Besides T-Streets, Cash Money owners Baby and Slim, Wayne’s managers Cortez Bryant and Gee Roberson, and various other staff and support, All-Pro Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Ochocinco has stopped in to show love, along with rising Oakland rapper Lil B, who arrives—wearing a YMCMB sweatshirt—with the teenage Young Money rep Lil Twist and the company president, Mack Maine.

“It’s amazing, man,” Lil B says about the experience of working with Young Money. “I got love for Mack and the whole crew. It’s an amazing boost of confidence. Respecting them for so long and them being such a big influence, like, Birdman and stuff. This is…man, a movie. You put everything in perspective. It’s amazing. This is history.”

XXL: Tha Carter IV is coming this summer. It’s probably the most anticipated album since Tha Carter III. It’s all wrapped up now?

Lil Wayne: Yeah, it is. I’m just chillin’ right now. Partyin’ with the Dallas Mavericks, and shit like that. Ain’t really doing too much right now.

How do you know when an album is done? When to stop?

You don’t. When they tell you. When ’Tez call me and tell me and say, “You got such and such date is your deadline to stop,” I be like, “Aight.” ’Cause I never stop recording, obviously. So it’s just on him to say, “Okay, stop. We’re gonna pick these songs, and that’s the album.” That’s how we do it.

I remember, before you went to prison, there was talk about there being a version of Tha Carter IV that was finished, that was going to be released the day you came home in November. Obviously, that never came out, and you’ve been recording a whole new version of the album since then. What’s going on with all of the old songs that you had?

We still think some of them deserve to be heard. So I revise ’em and go and touch ’em, see what I can do to make them better songs. And if that works, once I do that, we’ll use it. If not… Another thing what usually happens is, I usually listen to the song and be like, “Yeah, that’s too old. I don’t like that no more.” And Mack or another one of my artists will be like, “Nigga, you trippin’! Can I have it?” And it becomes their song. And other than that, the only other thing that happens is it ends up on my iPad, and I just listen to it forever. Y’all don’t hear it. [Laughs] A couple females hear it.

So now that the album’s done, artistically, the new songs, what can we expect? I know it’s really, like, no boundaries with you.

Yeah. Like I told somebody the other day, I’m not a situation rapper. I don’t make songs. Like, a lot of people go, “I make a song about this, what happened.” Perfect example, perfect song: Kanye’s “All of the Lights.” It’s a great song, but if you listen to the verses, he’s talking about some situation. I don’t know if he made the situation up; he may be talking about a situation we know about. I don’t know how to do that. I’m not a situation rapper. I can’t really speak about us sitting in this room right now, because my mind… I got ADD, I guess. When it’s time for me to create, I can’t sit and think about… After I think of one line, my mind done went to another subject.

I believe that people enjoy that about me. So that’s all you’re gonna get when you hear Tha Carter IV is just more of me. And like I told somebody, when I was tellin’ ’em about this, I told ’em I don’t have to be a situation rapper, which I would love to be. I would love to tell stories like Biggie. But I just don’t know how, ’cause my mind just… I’m here and there, everywhere with my music and with my thoughts period.

What is good about me is that I’m an interesting muthafucka. I’m Dwayne Michael Carter period! Whether I’m a rapper or not, I’m interesting. And that’s what my album’s gonna be about: me and how interesting I am.

I know you picked up the pen and pad again while you were away. Did you pull a T.I. and actually physically write out the new album before recording?

No, no. I mean, I was only writing when I was locked up. And I came home and I used most of the stuff that I wrote that was able to be used. But, of course, some of the stuff that I was thinking in there was without hearing what was going on out here. So when you apply them thoughts to what’s actually going on, that shit sound crazy. [Laughs] So I scratched a lot of that. But, nah, I ain’t writing. [Laughs] I’m writing phone numbers down… Business phone numbers! I ain’t mean no female phone numbers! I got a girl, ya dig! She’s 12. Her name is Reginae. Go ’head.

Your daughter, you mean. It must be good to come home and get to spend more time with your kids.

I’m bowing out gracefully, too. I’m bowing out still on top. I’ma make y’all want me when I retire. I’ma make y’all be like, “Nooo!”

I ain’t leaving out this bitch when y’all be like, “Yeah, it’s about time, dawg.” Carter IV might be my last one. I’ma make y’all be like, “Fuck!” Yeah, nigga, I’m gone.

Nah, man, you know they ain’t gonna let you leave.

Nigga, I’m about to be 30 years old. I’m 28. I’m not about to be rapping at 30. You trippin’, shawty.

Do you remember, last time we talked, in this same studio, you said you were gonna do six more albums? Six Carter albums?

Yeah, I was gonna do six. I went to jail, nigga! Shit fucked—man, Carter IV would’ve been out! Nigga, we would’ve been talking about what we were gonna do about Carter V. Next year, bam, Carter VI would’ve been out, when I’m 30. Bam! We had that shit planned out… [Laughs] I’m fuckin’ wit’ y’all, man. Y’all know a nigga ain’t going nowhere ’til he ’bout 31. By 31—I’m gone by 31, shawty.

Thirty-one? I don’t believe that, man. Mack and them are not gonna let you hang it up. I see Baby still doing it.

Well, I’m not Baby. [Laughs]

Honestly, this is the real truth. I honestly think it’s unfair to my kids. I’m super dedicated into what I do. Like, it’s no questions—it’s hands down, I do this. I live this. I don’t have a day out my week that I do something else. I do this every day of my life, and I’m not about to stop, ’cause that’s the only way you can succeed in this business, is to do it the way I do it. I want to succeed the way I want to succeed. You can succeed. You can put out a hit… But to do it the way I want to do it, to be comfortable to do what the fuck I want to do, you’ve got to work like no other. Like I said, it’s unfair to my kids. So about 30, 31, 32, I gotta get ready. I got three boys and one daughter. She’s gonna be a teenager, and they gonna be growing. They gonna be five or six. It’s time to get them. Let them niggas know what being a man is about, what being a little boy is about. I’m not trying to have no nanny do that or no uncle or no shit like that. No stepdad or no shit like that. I was raised like, Don’t let no other man take care of yours. Even if you gotta take the sacrifice of quitting what you love the most. Like I said, I’m finished at about 31, 32. That’s it, shawty.

  • Its CeeJ!

    wtf! no eminem on c4 but he let tech9 on it? thats some bullshit cuz tech is gonna rap battle that track and weezy is falling off… give eminem the diss he deserves weezy u know he would murder u!

  • Its CeeJ!

    kno what, idc ill see how this plays out. go ahead and let the fuck food fanatic get a spot on c4 ya country-pop sellout and we’ll see how classic lil wayne is….

  • Its CeeJ!

    btw^
    this is def. a anne videoshot… thanx for tha pix? forgot what u look like

  • @ gabe is right,, this dude planning on retiring at 30 sumthin is all a plan,,everything this dude does has a purpose in what he’s tryin to do in the future,,,beleedaht

  • mj

    Nah I think tech would be sick on c4. Em would fuck up c4 by talking about how his dog died or whatever. No love was horrible, tech is better suited for the album than that emo rapper

  • Chris

    Real interesting. Great interview.

  • Its CeeJ!

    no love was sick as hell, better than any collabs that tech9 has done. fuck food included. and so was drop the world. anything eminem has done is better than anything tech9 has done and if technine and em did a track together em would battle tech nine and nobody would even understand tech nine until they read the lyrics online… dont lie.
    wayne is scared of em and the proof… him avoiding him since the rebirth bullshit he did a while back.
    at least em has never made excuses to his fans about age, our wack beats, or management or basically all the things wayne posts on this site every day to avoid just letting the shit get out when he said it would be ready. and thats something u should respect in an entertainer cuz at the end of the day all he’s doing is just singing songs and asking for ur money to pay bills.
    that regatone speed rap bullshit tech9 is on is completely wack and i have no idea where that came from or why people even enjoy hearing it but i would guess its just another product of pop. and wayne’s eating that shit up… i dont like it

  • ^ ok stan

  • Miggity

    Pic wit the g-shock says one thing….

    “It’s bout that time….Sorry for the Wait”

    Weezy takeover in about 2 days.

    Buying Carter IV day 1 without question.

  • Its CeeJ!

    alright then how about i make a track with eminem and we’ll call it luck dude
    since its cool to steal peoples material and topics and shit. then imma grow dreads and cut half them shits out and look and smell like a rat.
    #caveman shit

  • brewcrew

    magazine is out already you supposed “Wayneiac”

  • Its CeeJ!

    dont get me wrong we’ll miss you rabbit but feel free to be gone anytime now…

  • mj

    What so u think no love would be good on c4? Roffl, I aint say tech is a better rapper than shady, I’m saying we don’t want that depressing bulshit on the album.

    Fucking stans…

  • mj

    and why the fuck would wayne be afraid to work with em? He’s afraid of not selling. If no love was the first single for c4, then I bet u half of wayne fans wouldn’t even buy the album u dumbass

  • morris

    Its CeeJ! u need to hop off eminems dick and jump off this site …fucker ..this is all u do all day…talk shit on wayne #getalife

  • mj

    An no love was more pop than anything compared to fuck food. Srsly someone needs to fucking open there ears

  • crystal

  • mj

    @james

    Oh ok cuz wayne said a while back there will be a surprise with the album that’s mainly for the fans so I thought it was d4. I wonder what it is.

    And ceej gtfo

  • UPT_504

    FAMILY > WORK!! I CAN RESPECT THAT

  • gunner

    man we gotta help weezy go out with a bang yall. this is it make sure yall buy c4 when it drops

  • RICO

    REMEMBER JAY-Z SAID THE SAME THING HE WAS DONE AND CAME BACK 2 YEARS LATER.. BACK WORKING. THE DRIVE IN HIM AS A ARTIST WONT LET HIM STOP THIS EASY.GO AHEAD AND TAKE YOUR BREAK WAYNE YOU’LL B BACK

  • mj

    @crystal

    Its prolly his last solo album but he is still going to record an album with drake and most and rnb album with I think loyld. C4 is the last of tha carter series but he can still do a lot in 2-3 years

  • It’s CeeJ!

    na im here deal with it.
    and for u stupid niggas that think u got jokes… there’s a little thing called a condom… u should try it, its basically like abortion except way better than killing a fetus. i know its steep but if u can afford the $2.50 i defintely recommend it, if i had children in a school distrinct with ur offspring i’d either pay for private school or tell my kid to kick ur kids ass.
    im guessing ur pro choice…. good for you?
    btw who gives a shit. that has nothing to do with weezy.
    half the reason i dont respect the guy is cuz he dont deserve to bow out gracefully after all the shit he talked on those mixtapes about being the best now its crunch time for an album and he’s trying to take it all back like nooo i cant handle the pressure.
    for once i speculate that white people will be the major democraphic that pirates this album cuzzzzzz… wayne fell off

  • AYOOO

    I AGREE 10000 % WITH @RICO. i was just saying that after reading. wayne has “i am music” tatted in his face, dude lives this shit since a teen he’ll be back for a few more rounds

  • trell_

    @it’s ceej IF I REMEMBER RIGHT, NIGGA U WAS THE BIGGEST WAYNE DICK RIDER TO EVER BE ON THIS SITE. NOW ALL OF A SUDDEN U WANNA BE A HATER? –__– HOW WAYNE FELL OFF WHEN HE WAS THE HOTTEST NIGGA IN RAP WHILE IN JAIL WHO U KNOW CAN DO THAT? HE BOWING OUT ON TOP. HE GAVE US THOUSANDS OF MIXTAPES AND 6 GOING ON 7 SOLO ALBUMS PLUS HOT BOYS ALBUMS. HE HAS NOTHING LEFT TO “PROVE” U DUMB FUCK

  • janis

    i agree with @rico and @trell_

  • toni

    wayne used to say he’ll “never quit” but that was when he was high out his mind and only had one kid. he’s sober with a clear mind and he’s analyzed his life and see’s he doesnt have to work hisslef to death. and he has BIGGER responsbilities (his kids). so @it’s ceej u can suck on it

  • It’s CeeJ!

    uhh lately its all excuses. and i hate that. f is u understand me or not, i can hate wayne and listen to his music and u cant do shit but cry about it, steal my stereo (thaniggersolution) or get the fuck off my
    if i remember correctly u r the one that starts shit with other members on this site not me. idc how much u think u roast me and whatever i dont give a fuck. its just letters on a screen. and u arent changing my mind.

  • ymcmb

    exactly @trell_ and @rico!! but i give wayne a good 2 years and he’ll come back.

  • NY

    Wayne said it his self.

    “I’m not a situation rapper. I don’t make songs. Like, a lot of people go, “I make a song about this, what happened.” Perfect example, perfect song: Kanye’s “All of the Lights.” It’s a great song, but if you listen to the verses, he’s talking about some situation. I don’t know if he made the situation up; he may be talking about a situation we know about. I don’t know how to do that. I’m not a situation rapper. I can’t really speak about us sitting in this room right now, because my mind… I got ADD, I guess. When it’s time for me to create, I can’t sit and think about… After I think of one line, my mind done went to another subject.
    I believe that people enjoy that about me. So that’s all you’re gonna get when you hear Tha Carter IV is just more of me. And like I told somebody, when I was tellin’ ’em about this, I told ’em I don’t have to be a situation rapper, which I would love to be. I would love to tell stories like Biggie. But I just don’t know how, ’cause my mind just… I’m here and there, everywhere with my music and with my thoughts period.”

  • yo mama

    yeah i rember @ceej was a big fan of wayne now he’s a big hater! smfh i think that clwon does it for attention. smfh NO LIFE. anyway… i not happy wayne leaving but like he said he’ll leave us wanting more. so i guess that means a flood of music before he turns 30+

    my nigga been doing this music shit since he was a local rapper in the hometown. he a grown man making =grown man choices = KIDS OVER RAPPING! if u cant respect that then i cant respect you.

  • It’s CeeJ!

    im prety sure im not the hater in this situation. if i hated wayne or didnt care i wouldnt be on here cuz im not that kinda useless person like most of yall who make comments that are singularly directed at another person’s comment… that’s dickriding my fiend. think about that. im not looking for attention cuz i dont go after yall like u do me when i got something to say. thats all on u. i like 90% of the music and actions of lil wayne. but the other 10% is idiotic, selfish, crooked, skeezy, and did i mention selfish? and if u say he has nothing to prove ur dead wrong. cuz anybody that builds that much ego on mixtapes then folds during crunch time needs to be called out for it. its one thing to say it and another to prove it, and if ur only way to prove it is to say it (by rapping like lil wayne) then he needs to stop fumbling with excuses and SAY IT so we get the mixtape/singles/album and WE AS THE FANS SAY damn, he really is the best. not, “well he was pretty good for a while then he changed his mind on dying for the game and making 6 carters and never stoping and became a mediocre artist with decent flow and a prettty intricet background storry”
    look i dont care if u think im a hater or a dick rider cuz i got time and shit to say so guess what!?
    the only thing i do regret is when shit happens and i entertain these retarded conversations.

    @ Rico

    Agreed. Wayne is dedicated to rap 2 much to retire when he still got a lot in him. I can see him going on a break but I dont think he will completely retire at 31 or 32. Like he said he want to be in his kids life 1st but I can see him somehow working it out and being there for his kids watching them grow up and still dropping songs.. Something like multitasking.

    people can hate on Weezy and his music all they want…but you can’t but to respect a person who is as dedicated their music and fans as this fella is…Imma miss the nikka’s music like a MF if he actually retires….#realTalk

  • Damn!!you can not stop at 30!but devote your time to other things than rap, as the family is the best.
    I like when you say you’re not a rapper situation ’cause you speak of a particular time, the smaller if necessary….and that makes you different!!!!
