Producers Mannie Fresh & Key Wane Discuss Their Involvement With Lil Wayne Tha Carter 5 Album

On the black carpet at the 2014 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards in Los Angeles on August 22nd, Hip-Hop Wired caught up with producers Mannie Fresh and Key Wane to ask them about their involvement in Lil Wayne‘s forthcoming album, Tha Carter V, due to drop on October 28th.

Mannie mentioned that him and Weezy are trying to recapture Tha Carter I sound on the fifth installment of his Tha Carter album series: “If you know Tha Carter I, then you know Mannie Fresh and we’re just trying to recapture that sound.”

Wane explained that he has heard some stuff from C5 and even though he does not know if his beats will make the final cut of the album, he will still listen to it as he is a big fan of Tune: “Regardless, Carter V, Carter VI, Carter VII – I’m going to listen to them whether I’m on it or not.”

    Waynes on back-to-back dedications (4&5) for the first time in his career. We know there will never be a -No Ceilings 2- (No Ceilings was too good, for even wayne to improve on.) and never a -LFLS 2- (Cuz nobody likes Birdman)..and thats a fact. So i dont know why we couldn’t get a -Da Drought 4- !! Its coming september 12th! P.S. u wayniac’s know wayne said C5 is like IANAHB 3 so thats why thats not mentioned. And D6 will be after C5; Follwed by ICFMF.

    • YoungJT1092

      Excuse me, Im gonna have to disagree with you on the Birdman comment. I like and appreciate Birdman for plugging in Wayne, and by extension Nicki and Drake. His old school Big Tymers music is awesome as well. He may not be as lyrically captivating as the three I listed, but NEVER should you call yourself a true Wayne fan and disrespect Baby.

      • SeattleAtHome

        Im a fan of wayne…not baby. Not even drake or tyga…just wayne. #September12

    • Jay weezle

  • Ben

    • Khosta

      they said IANAHB2 was like C2 remember?

      • Time

        Not “they”, just some dick-rider thot said that.

        If she didn’t get fired after saying that, she should have done, she lost all her credibility with hip-hop.

        • Khosta

          but IANAHB2 was better than C2, it was raw freestyles

          • RJ Brunson

            Leave this website if u think IANAHB2 was better than C2. Immediately.

            • Khosta

              Kidding bro C2 was out of this world in his planet Mars

              • krazy

        • Tune Up ©

          Some of the songs on IANAB2 resemblance C2. Like “Oh No” and “Trippy”

          • krazy

            Hell no listen to oh no and its lyricism then listen to the lazy stoner lyrics of trippy

  • Nemisa

    Hype level to the roof…but we need a new single tho

    • Khosta

      be patient or I’ma turn you into a patient

      • Nemisa

        Dude you’re fuckin up everything

        • WeezyDaGOAT

          i cant stand this nigga. i’m a huge wayne fan, but this guy over the top.

    • Time

      We need the next single to be that Mannie Fresh feature we heard

      • Khosta

        I’m sure you never get better in time

      • Nemisa

        Fo sure that sounds too dope! It would go #1 nigga real quick

  • Khosta

      • Mech_Engr_09

  • Ogres gate

      This is a blatat lie because Krazy isnt on this list. Nice try

    • Ogres gate

      You is a lie nigga

      Why is tmnt bebop on so many features ?

    • Tune Up ©

      Mark my words, Em or 50 will be on C5!

      • Ogres gate

        Em sucks now
        50 too good for wayne nigga

        • Fuck tha Fame

          What 50 is wack and washed up that’s why his album flopped

          • Ogres gate

            Compare 50s catalogue to waynes

            Power of the dollar is one of the best mixtapes ever made

            • Fuck tha Fame

              Da drought 3 & d2 are both one of the best mixtapes ever made what’s your point?

              • Ogres gate

                No nigga

                Youdont know shit its obvious

              • Tune Up ©

                D1 is better than D2 imo.. people overrate D2

                • Fuck tha Fame

                  Na theres a few tracks from d1 i can listen to on repeat tho

                • Tune Up ©

                  Like I said, people overrate D2.

            • blahhh

              You’re going to lose your argument comparing there catalogs 50 had two great mixtape 1 great album and 1 good album that’s it

              • Ogres gate

                And now please explain how everything wayne ever put out is classic
                And how rebirth changed your sad little fan life

                • blahhh

                  Wayne has 6 classic 3 Carter’s and d2 dd3 no ceilings. And besides body of work Wayne is a better rapper than 50
                  P.s I only like 1 song from rebirth and a few from ianahb2

                • blahhh

                  But I rather listen to ianahb2 over aa

                • Ogres gate

                  Id rather listen to your sister queef in my face than that

            • Fuck tha Fame

              50 has no catalogue he has massacre and GRODT LOL

              • Ogres gate

                Your stupidity has reached new levels

      • 954AUTHENTIC

        Jay is a must.

    • Mech_Engr_09

      If young gay boy thug is on this album at all I’m going to be furious. I can’t imagine how disappointed I will be if he’s on there twice. He’s straight garbage bro.

  • YoungJT1092

    Quite frankly I hope and pray C5 has like 2-3 Mannie songs. Us 2004 and back fans need that. I trust Wayne, I know once Mannie spun those beats he got into his Da Drought- C1 flow, and personally those songs are what I’m aiming to listen to first when the album drops. 😀

  • Ogres gate

    Damn waynes pose in the pic has carter3 written all over it, but his face looks more carter 1 and the clothes are definitely stuntin like my daddy era + the bald nigga on the left remind me of wayne in squad up days
    And not to forget the french fries i ate earlier today smelled like the block is hot era

    Wayne is so versatile in style and eras its crazy

    • Nemisa

      It’s clear, you gay

      • Ogres gate

        Get the fuck off this site you hater
        Only real wayne fans know this nigga like i do

  • WeezyF

    I’m looking for anything to be hype about cuz mines at 0 right now and I was thinking we didn’t get a weezy wedsenday so maybe we get that sneak thing this week or some big news I no it’s a stretch but I need something to boost my hype

    • Ogres gate

      Heres a idea to kill time

      Step 1 hang a snooze on your bedroom door
      Step 2 put your stupid head through it
      Step 3 play lil waynes drop the world on max volume
      Step 4 start masturbating while the video of 6foot 7foot plays on mute
      Step 5 when your close to climax imagine wayne is in front of you and kissing your forehead
      Step 6 choke

      • WeezyDaGOAT

        fucked up

        • Ogres gate

          I forgot put on a batman custome

      • TwizzieTwitch

        ladies and gentleman his our generation…

      • Khosta

        faggot

  • Chris

    Nigga I’m a king

    • Khosta

      need a horn and a drum roll

  • CV

    Fresh fesh err err fresh.. I need a single perhaps the one he played for lil twist.

  • Ogres gate

    typical the Game lines

    When (someone did something) i was doing something (cool/dangerous/gangster) with (someone/ dr dre)

    When my momma told me my ass is gay
    i was sitting in the low rider smoking with dre

    When waka flocka was still in middle school
    i was selling homemade ice cream from my living room
    with dre on the couch
    Plastic spoon in his mouth

  • Ms_hot_ice

    Hey know we nigga fresh back can’t pay my rent cause money spend turn up turn down for wat

  • YMCorey

    Y’all just keep asking for sequels to each classic mixtape damn relax

    • Ogres gate

      Damn corey wheres the fucking album allready ?

      Oyeah i forget young money put you on the “forever making mixtapes” list

  • Salder

    It would be great if Carter V have not as many beat maker as Carter 3 or 4, hope this album will have an homogeneous athmospher.

  • Ogres gate

    typical the Game lines

    When (someone did something) i was doing something (cool/dangerous/gangster) with (someone/ dr dre)

    When milli vanilli was making hits
    i was in the back of the kitchen cooking gritz
    With dre serving tables
    While smoking purple hazle
    We were getting crazy tips

    Remember that dre ? I was drawing superman while you were making beats in the batcave

  • 954AUTHENTIC

    I can tell that song wit mannie gona be Somem special by the wayne wayne is CHEEZING in the pic look like they are happy to be working together again.

  • SeattleAtHome-High

    OK so just imagine if ‘When They Come For Me’ was Track#1 on C5!?!? followed by ’30 minutes to New Orleans’ for Track#2 – Hahahah best Carter album E-V-E-R.

    • Ogres gate

      Damn right

      And if he cuts his hair like in carter2 time and start wearing baggy clothes again aka. The 2004 era with pinch of blunt blowing breathing its going to be the bomb
      And if he eats the same thing as in carter1 days this is going to be the perfect record
      Better not forget to leave his facial hair growing like in the leather so soft video and drink the same juice just like he did in his light out days

      Classic niggas straight classic
