Producer Infamous Says There Is An Extended Version Of Lil Wayne & Kendrick Lamar Mona Lisa Collaboration

Infamous recently chopped it up wit DJ Booth about his work on Lil Wayne‘s new album, Tha Carter V, especially the “Mona Lisa” song featuring Kendrick Lamar.

The producer discussed when Tunechi first started working on “Mona Lisa“, how they decided to put Kendrick on it, working on the beat and vocals during the 4-year lawsuit, how it feels now that the collaboration is finally out, and more.

Also during their conversation, Infamous revealed that there was 35 seconds taken off of “Mona Lisa“, so when they shoot a music video, he thinks those 35 seconds will return. The producer even added if C5 hadn’t of come out this year or next year, he would of leaked the track himself, as well as that there is so much more Weezy music on the way!

DJBooth: Starting with the basics, when did you first get the “Mona Lisa” beat to Wayne?
Infamous: The way that the song really started, is we were right in the middle of, towards the end of when Carter V was really supposed to come out [2014] back in the day. Wayne called me, and he was working on a song, and he was like, “Yo, come and get the vocals to this thing that I’m working on. See if you can make a new beat around it.” I went and picked up the vocals. Angel [Aponte], who was working for him at the time, I picked up the files from him and me and Angel went up to my studio after. We made a five-minute beat. It wasn’t anything special or crazy, some of it is still in the final version. We played it for Wayne, and then that turned into the concept of “Mona Lisa.”

He started writing to the beat, and it turned into the story. I heard it and I was like, “Oh, shit, this is crazy.” Then he did a second verse and at the time, his engineer was a dude named Omar Loya. Wayne was talking about trying to get a feature on the song. Everybody was kinda like, “Maybe Nas would be crazy because it’s a storytelling song.” Omar was the one who said, “Kendrick would be cool.” Boom. I know Wayne and Kendrick linked up in the studio, and I wasn’t invited, which bummed me out.

A couple days later, I heard Kendrick’s verse. Wayne played me the whole thing, and it was a whole different ball game. Production-wise, I had to match them. And then that’s where the lawsuit happened. Before we even got a chance to touch the record, everything just got put on pause. Years went by of maybe it’s coming out, maybe it’s not.

When did Kendrick Lamar get on the track?
That’s like To Pimp a Butterfly-era Kendrick. He did his verse a while ago.

How different is the beat we hear today from the one you sent over?
Kendrick’s entire verse is completely reworked from [the beat] he recorded to. I believe he heard the final version—unless Wayne sent it to him beforehand—I think he heard his verse the way everybody else had, a couple days ago. The main melody of the beat that’s playing in the background and the synth sounds, those are from the original beat. We built the new production around that theme. The pianos are live pianos. We replaced the plug-in pianos with real pianos. The amount of work that went into this production is more than I’ve done for anything [laughs]. To the point where every reverb on the piece was replaced with a plate reverb. Once all the music was recorded, then we recorded to quarter-inch tape, then we recorded it back in. We went through a whole lot of nerd processes to make it sound as amazing as possible.

Were you working on the song following the lawsuit?
There were moments where Angel would fly down every now and then. Throughout the years we would get phone calls like, “Oh, shit, it looks like the album might come out.” There’s been a few false alarms where we’d revisit the song. It’ll go cold, and we’ll just stop working on it. We had plenty of time of doing a couple little things and then just leaving it to rest, then listening to it with fresh ears like, “That shit sucks, let’s do something different.”

So the timing helped you make a better song?
Oh absolutely! [Laughs] And just so you know, there’s 35 seconds that was taken off of the song. I think whenever they do the video, I think those 35 seconds are going back in. If anybody was like, “Oh, I wish the song was longer,” there you go. It’s coming.

How long did you go not knowing if “Mona Lisa” was coming out?
I think right around the time I hit you guys up like, “Let’s talk about this song” [summer 2018], I think I was starting to give up a little bit. A song like this—I’m gonna keep it real with you—if it wouldn’t have come out this year or even next year, I probably would have leaked it myself. I think that song is too crazy for it to just live on a laptop. I felt the world of hip-hop needed to hear this song. So no matter what, I would’ve leaked it at some point.

That’s funny, we just covered Alex Tumay saying leaks are bad for fans yesterday.
I know what he’s saying though because I was part of the whole leak thing with Carter III. There’s times where shit gets leaked and it’s not finished. Like, I would’ve been devastated if any of the process throughout finalizing this song, if it would’ve leaked and the surprise would’ve been ruined and people would’ve heard a work in progress. I feel him on that, but at certain points, it’s like, if the song is done and for some reason it’s the business that’s holding people back from listening to it? Put that shit out. Fuck that shit.

Describe to me the moment you knew for certain you were on Tha Carter V.
I’mma keep it real with you: I always know. I talk to Wayne pretty often. I’ve always been someone they could call to do whatever. Me and Manny [Galvez] put all the mom skits into the songs. I always knew I would end up with something if the album came out.

How did you feel when the album was officially announced?
Still skeptical. When did I stop? Friday at midnight when the album was actually online.

Is it surreal that it’s out?
It’s such a relief, more than anything. This is one of the rare times I really sat there when the project came out and listened to it beginning to end, and tried to enjoy it as a fan of music. Especially with four years of sitting there wondering if anyone’s ever gonna hear this song, or any of these songs. Two: the reaction was good, so that make things even better.

Has this process impacted your overall process at all?
Nah, it was just a bummer more than anything. It didn’t stop me from creating music. It really fucked things up with Wayne, and seeing him go through what he went through… That dude never missed a studio session. He’s going to the studio every day doing 12 hours of recording. His work ethic is so crazy. I don’t even think this is work for him; this is therapy for him, to go to the studio and rap. To finally see this shit out, I’m just super happy for him. He can start to move on.

Is there more music on the way?
There’s so much Wayne music! This is really the first release Wayne has had since streaming took over. I think now that they see how easy it is to just put music out and not have to get CDs made… Wayne is really the kind of artist who could drop an album every month if he wanted to. His work ethic hasn’t changed from 2006 when he was doing all those mixtape features. I’m interested to see what the future holds after this album cycle is done. I think he’s in the studio right now, working on new stuff.

What’s the major takeaway from this journey to Tha Carter V?
Fuck, man. I’m gonna say: Never give up. Wait, that’s mad corny [laugh]. I’m kinda still shocked. I feel like people reacted really well to the album. I think the fans are super happy and I’m really glad that it’s out and people are finally enjoying it. I think everything happens for a reason, either that, or we end up making the best out of what’s thrown our way.

  • Scream☁️9FDAWORLD

    Where is sin/sip?

    • -The Wayniac-

      When looking at that old original CV tracklist.. It does not appear to say “sin/sip”

      It looks like just one word..either sin or sip, as tha title of the track ur talkin about.

      Also that track “St. Louis” … Doesn’t say “St Louis” …
      If u look close enough, it clearly says “Stickem”

    • Patrick H

      It says “SLM” which is Smell Like Money.

  • David D

    Great read

  • K9OUSSAY

    Someone on YouTube comment said
    A company looking for models and things in L.A for lil Wayne

    • Patrick H

      Could be a video for any song or it could be another Bumbu commercial.

  • Patrick H

    He said there’s more Wayne music on the way, w00p.

    • Nijee

      Of course Wayne is free & sole owner of Young Money so he can release music whenever he wants

  • Nijee

    Wayne definitely going feed his fans more music soon after Carter V dyed down

    • Keeze Mojito

  • Giraffe Boy

    #nc2

  • Goat Tamer

    I hope those 35 seconds are from the outro because it sounded so good.. The auto tune was spot on

  • It’s dope how if you a rapper you look at bars different from fans. Bruh it’s so dope how Wayne starts each bar with a word rhyming with ‘You’ then pauses abit and continues and ends with a word that rhymes with ‘Silly’…

    “I smoke color purple, I’m up in here feelin’ like Celie (Ooh)
    Nappy-ass dreads, what’s that you say?
    Watch your mouth, Milli Vanilli (Ooh)
    You can get snaked, you can get faked
    Out by the bitch that you feelin’
    ‘Cause you thought that she was an angel
    That bitch ain’t no angel, I treat her halo like a frisbee
    And you…”

  • Fax one of my favs

  • So there is something you actually like

  • Dr Carter

    Cant wait to see Wayne touching his dreads and pointing the camera wit an angry/stinky face on tha “Nappy ass dreads, whats dat you say ? Watch your mouth Milli-Vanilli Oooh” part. Mona Lisa video

  • Goat Tamer

    It would be weird if Wayne had black dreads and a goatee nowadays I’m used to the clean shave.. Still think he should fix his dreads tho

  • FLOMETHEUS

    High Budget Music Videos are Usually Released 1 1/2 to 2 Months After they’re Shot. So, if they Shot the “Mona Lisa” on Friday, We’re Looking a Mid December Release.

    • Crown4weezy

      Should ask of it was hollyweezy

      • It’s not produced by him so he wouldn’t knkw

      • ⁶𓅓ºᵛº ᵃⁿᵗ𓅓⁶

        Yea holly weezy lol

    • -The Wayniac-

      Yea obviously. Glory was originally “Get Em” or “Better Get Em”

      Holy is also Not “Hollyweezy” as many think. Because “Holy” & “Holly” are two different things.. so ‘Holy’ is an unreleased track..

    • Nobody said it was glory we said it was hollyweezy

      • Nah some guys here debated that it was Glory cuz Holy is not pronounced the same as Holly from the word Hollygrove and Hollywood. Lol and also Wayne keeps saying “holy” on Glory

    So
    Wayne writes his lyrics 😒

    • HIDE

      He’s prolly jist referring to the recording process like making the verses an shit

  • Muhammed Riyaz Zx

    Did anyone notice that the producer says
    Lil wayne start WRITING his lyrics
    Wayne a lier.?

    • -The Wayniac-

      He may be just saying “write” as in “he did it/he’s responsible for it”

      However, he did mention to Jimmy Fallon (i believe, maybe someone else) that “people” “type” his lyrics (like what he says), then he reads over them, which may be why he had some paper on a stand in front of him while recording No Ceilings (Banned from TV) … Hopefully those were typed lyrics.. or he’s been lying since ’09..

      • YMYSL 🐍🐍

        Those “people” typed his lyrics from Dedicate so he can practice them for the performance. He clearly stated that. The paper.. You’re a “Wayniac” and asking bout that? Fake fan

  • FLOMETHEUS

    I Don’t Know if Anyone Has Said this, but “Zero” Sounds Like it Was Intended for the Same Project as “Vizine”, IMO.

    • ⁶𓅓ºᵛº ᵃⁿᵗ𓅓⁶

      Zero sounds like trash

    • Nah maybe same project with That Ain’t Me

  • Baby and Gunna first week better than Quavo, das tuff

  • Wayne’s second week better than quavo’s first week but New chapter guys think Quavo is 2008 Wayne level, das tuff

  • Too many people dropping every week that would be hard to do

  • 99k nigga not 110k

  • I know but people area annoying wth the word “relevant” lmao they thought Quavo bigger than Wayne and all these new rappers too. Only rappers bigger than Wayne in 2018 probably Drake and Travis not to say they close to him skill wise they just have more people checking for them currently

  • Nah last week was only like 2 days and he sold 6k or something

    U Were Saying?

  • Don’t recall them not being trash

  • RSB

    They don’t have the ability to make fire imo. But hey I think most these niggas trash, but I’m usally able to find a song or two I like from them . But overall they can’t rap

  • He is

  • Wayne a fool

  • Wayne trolled everyone with IANAHB2 especially the fans who wanted a serious album and Cashmoney too😂😂 how he pick a funny goofy ass beat for Lay It Down and say “I might as well go stupid since this is a stupid beat” lmao on an album bruh

    • -The Wayniac-

      Well.. IANAHB albums are consisted of throw-away “Tha Carter” tracks.. and there were some solid tracks on IANAHB2..But heres what We Need to Remember:

      IANAHB2 was released just a few years after he “got out” .. I bet he was really fucked up and doing drugs hardcore during that time (No Worries – Music Video)

  • IANAHB2 would be a hit in streaming era

  • hellcattune
  • RSB

    a song being big doesn’t mean it’s fire . You telling me they spit fire on that song ? Lmao

  • Log out now

    Thats a joke

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    Offset can rap his ass off niggas sleep

    • He can’t, says same shit with the same flow nigga gtfo

      • ✨luh uzi vert✨

        Guess we don’t agree on this

    • RSB

      I haven’t heard it , what’s a song he has

      • ✨luh uzi vert✨

        Check out his feature of Gucci Manes Met Gala🤙

  • RSB

    I disagree

  • Migos couldn’t have better bars than No Worries

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      They have bars you just don’t relate to the subject matter

      • What subject matter, it’s the same shit and they got zero bars nigga they just rhyme ABC, with the same flow

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          They rap about the trap life like a good majority of Wayne songs lol

          • They don’t say anything in a clever way. We can all rap bout the same topic but not have the same level of creativity on how we say it

  • It always is, if you think otherwise don’t join this debate

  • That intro is hard doe give em something easier maybe Days and days or Wowzers

  • Nah that’s still hard af

  • Migos same level as future, Lil Uzi, Kodak, Yaghty etc their bars that level

  • Imagine hearing a bar from offset and going “ooooh shit he said…” Lmao

  • Nah average

  • Wowzers

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    Don’t bother lol this dude listen to Lil Wayne only😂 he don’t dig deep and look for the songs these guys are rapping just hears they big pop songs and compares them to Wayne’s most lyrical shit ever bunch of pointless debates

    • Yet if you would see the songs on my phone you’d be surprised, that’s why I know what I’m talking about

      • ✨luh uzi vert✨

        You know nothing about 90% of the rappers you speak on

        • You know 0% bout my music knowledge

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    If Wayne said it he would call it bar of the year

  • Problem with you guys I guess y’all forgot or just don’t know what actual bars are lol the octopus bar just made me cringe

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    MK really quoting trash bars like they’re fire 😂

  • YungJackBauer

    Yeah bro

  • I don’t understand it??😂😂😂😂

  • Dr Carter

    How old are u ?

    • Good question

      • Dr Carter

        Im looking his comment and he seems hella young tbh. No offense

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    That’s what I’m saying lol pointless arguments niggas just think every artist needs to be a carbon copy of Lil Wayne

  • Listen to The ringer by Eminem or Mona Lisa by Wayne nigga and see what bars are. Or go listen to a black thought freestyle, or daylyt freestyle and come back and read that octopus bar and try not to cringe

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Well obviously but not every song is made for that intent so comparing Mona Lisa to songs meant to be played in a night club is kinda stupid like obviously one is deeper

      • Nah just suggestion on what bars are since y’all seem to not have a clue

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          I listen to Lil Wayne almost daily I just think Offset can rap lmao most the world agrees or we wouldn’t know who he is 🙄🤷‍♂️

  • Hurt

  • But that octopus bar? You should be ashamed of yourself

  • Btw Mona Lisa is being played at nightclubs currently haha

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Irrelevant lol it wasn’t made for that environment initially

      • It wasn’t but it actually fits how tragic

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          Congrats to Wayne that’s why he a legend but still majority of music being played at nightclubs is unlyrical

  • -The Wayniac-

    its ” i still got da vision ”

    rookie..

  • And don’t change this. The debate was never about night club songs, it was about bars and y’all happen to include guys without bars and now y’all saying the comparison is unfair lol fuckin losers

  • Yes and a party I went to

  • YungJackBauer

    SHE SAID MY DICK COULD BE THE NEXT BLACK PRESIDENT

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    all I said was offset can rap
    Not that he was better than Wayne in any way

    • YungJackBauer

      Hi drake

      • ✨luh uzi vert✨

        Sup

    • And I’m not saying you said that, I’m saying he can’t rap

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    The best part is Wayne making music with them all lol

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    But offset can’t? Nigga get help

  • That’s what they thought now they all went and got that C5 and saying “thank god actual rappers are back” haha

  • Kevin Gates ? Lol

  • X can rap doe, his freestyle on BET was fire and he washed Joey Baddas on a track

  • X makes the best music out of the new kids and when it’s rapping time he shows up

  • J.I.D is another dope new rapper, kinda like a mix of Wayne and kendrick

  • There’s a guy called reason he was on the BET cypher he is also a dope new rapper

  • Nah

  • HIDE

    Nigga I’ma ass wit that semi call me semicolon

    • HIDE

      🔥🔥🔥

  • Shawn Smith 🔥🔥🔥

  • Don’t fuckin tell me Offset can rap nigga when there are guys who actually take time to keep their pen straight, fuck outter here stick to sales debates and don’t enter bar debates

  • HIDE

    Ion even listen to rappers

    • HIDE

      That’s not true

  • Smh

  • Mout

  • HIDE

    A rapper gotta have some kind of swag/character besides just generic rapper for me to really listened to em, an I gotta agree with it, like their persona can’t be corny to me

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Peep Met Gala and tell me Offset can’t spit

      • HIDE

        Aiit holdup

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          Rns 💯💯

      • HIDE

        Offset good but that migos flow getting old to me

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          But he can spit is all in saynnn

          • HIDE

            Yeah he can spit

  • -The Wayniac-

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Nothing wrong with having a preference but nigga tryna make it seem like every other nigga in rap is retarded like nigga chill not every nigga in the game can be Jordan

      • HIDE

        That’s true I don’t discredit other artists unless I really don’t fuck wit them like Kanye, an I still like some Kanye songs

        • ✨luh uzi vert✨

          Yea Kanye a whole hoe lol still got classics tho

          • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

            Kanye is my African American! Stfu!

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    Joint projects the norm now Drake and Wayne needa show em how to do it right

  • Burnerbahn28

    I’m trying to picture how they could put a music video together for Mona Lisa. I mean with the Music’s Content and lyrics I don’t see it being a video that could be on public TV but who knows

    • HIDE

      Youtube bro, I can’t remember the last time I saw a music video on tv

      • Burnerbahn28

        Well if it’s strictly YouTube they can go as far as they want then right. Liz answering the door naked titties out Liz that’s enough you can put ya hands down. They better not go pg13 on Mona Lisa video. That’s the Gem of C5

        • HIDE

          That’d be dope

      • Bruh

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    C6 should be a joint project with Drake tbh
    Since Drake the 6 God

    • Nah

      • ✨luh uzi vert✨

        Always responding dumb late lol village WiFi holding you back nigga

  • Dr Carter

    Drake murders every beat he on. Nobody cant touch him tbh (without mentioning Wayne you know)

    • ✨luh uzi vert✨

      Baby and Gunna whole tape got outshined by his feature lol

      • Dr Carter

        😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 true

  • Burnerbahn28

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    I’m good with either

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    Mona Lisa don’t need a video the lyrics already paint the picture

    • -The Wayniac-

      100

    • Ultra Instinct Yamcha Get Hoes

      Double entendre (wayne should use that line in a new song)

  • ✨luh uzi vert✨

    Let It Fly would be a smart one to make a video for Travis huge rn

    Cmon bruh this Wayne’s best verse or top 5 🔥

    It’s alive, it’s alive, I’m revived, it’s C5
    Been arrived, kiss the sky, did the time
    Please advise, it is advised to be advised
    And we advise you not fuck with me and mine
    And keep in mind that we don’t mind losing our minds
    Free your mind, read your mind, read your mind
    Body take a week to find, the cops gon’ be like, “Never mind”
    What’s on your mind?
    Put the pistol to your mind and blow your mind
    Control your mind, mindfreak, no sober mind
    I’m so behind, but front line
    You crossed the line, and you better know your lines
    And if you getting out of line, I hang you with a clothing line
    Wring you like an open line, keep your stanky ho in line
    Them hoes be lying, it’s a thin line, I know you know the line
    Second line, second line, Tunechi got effective lines
    Rough edges like a box of Checkers fries, that’s a line
    Catch the line, American flag, less stars, extra lines
    Stretch the line, skip the line, ’til you no more next in line
    Yeah, Tunechi-Tune a lunatic, my goonie-goons the gooniest
    Run inside your room and kill you and who you roomin’ with
    The Uzi with the booty clip; more than one, I’m too-equipped
    Talking ’bout some fake niggas, based on true events
    Trying not to get pinched, smoking on a stupid stench
    Lookin’ in the mirror tryin’ to figure where my pupils went
    Flashy with a boujee bitch, Travy, that’s my hooligan (it’s lit)
    Take the T off Tunechi and look at it as the crucifix, bitch

    • MakaveliRise

      Lmao Mona Lisa? You can’t speak on hip hop if you say that’s a top 5 instrumental

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    I see no London On Da Track.. This list ain’t it if London doesn’t have atleast one on it

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    He produced Check .. He’s top 5

  • He is the greatest imo

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    That would be Hittas. Same producer, same session

  • MakaveliRise

    So he wrote Mona Lisa? He needs to get lack to writing again

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

    Same session. I forgot what article it was that I saw that, but I remember reading about it. Either DJ booth or Rolling Stone

  • YMYSL 🐍🐍

      • King Slime Thugger

        What up old man

      • YMYSL 🐍🐍

        You serious??

  • MakaveliRise

    I’m pretty sure he said he wrote it in his crwn interview too. He should right more becuase he’s been doing the unfocused unstructured style for like 15 years. That’s why a lot of his content pretty much sounds the same, just worded differently.

  • lupe1992

    The beat to Mona Lisa was wack af. Only thing good was Wayne and somewhat KenDICK Lame-ar. Don’t @ me.

  • lupe1992

    Instead of Used 2, New Dope Gospel, and Open Safe Wayne should of made some certified mainstream bangers to really put him back into long lasting relevancy. I guess his dreads reflect his career…trying hard and thinning out.

    Weezy >>> Kendick Lamear

  • lupe1992

    Wowzers >>> Mona Lisa

  • Nigga Wayne got24 platinum singles, it’s not about doing it once or twice it’s about consistency
