DJ Folk Reveals Why Songs Like “Life Of. Mr Carter” & “Kidnap Cupid” Didn’t Make Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album

DJ Folk Reveals Why Songs Like Life Of Mr Carter & Kidnap Cupid Didnt Make Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album

Production coordinator DJ Folk wrote an article for DJ Booth after Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album was released to talk about his work on the project, as well as how it felt seeing C5 on hold with the Wayne vs. Birdman lawsuit.

In the article, Folk revealed why some of the songs that we have heard snippets for, such as “Life Of Mr. Carter” (prod. P.C.), “Kidnap Cupid” (co-prod. Megaman and Zalezy), and “World On My Shoulders” (prod. BP) did not make Tha Carter V.

DJ Folk also mentioned that he sent Weezy the “Gotti” and “Hittas” beats, which were produced by Jayones, in the same e-mail back in late 2013, so he is glad that he is now a part of the album with A&Ring “Hittas“. You can read everything that Folk said below!

Lil Wayne Says: “The Hardest Part Of Being In Jail Was Going Without Sex”

Lil Wayne Says The Hardest Part Of Being In Jail Was Going Without Sex
Lil Wayne and Cher Lloyd

We have another excerpt from Lil Wayne‘s Rolling Stone Magazine interview, which hits newsstands tomorrow (January 21). Weezy tells the magazine that being behind bars wasn’t too bad, and the hardest part about it was going without sex. He also says that he was man enough to take the punishment, even though the gun was not his.

The hip-hop star told Rolling Stone the closest thing he had to companionship in his cell in Rikers Island, New York, was a picture of a woman from a magazine that he taped to the wall.

‘Anyone starts looking good in that bitch,’ he tells the US music magazine. ‘Like, ‘Damn, look at HER with that uniform on, Mrs Officer!’’

The star still insists the gun he was sent to jail over was not his, but he says he was man enough to take the punishment.

‘I dropped my nuts and took it,’ he said, referring to his eight-month prison sentence.

Rolling Stone Article On Lil Wayne + Rebirth’s First Week Sales Estimate

Rolling Stone Article On Lil Wayne + Rebirths First Week Sales Estimate
Lil Wayne as an Avatar

Check out this interesting article Rolling Stone Magazine did on Lil Wayne from their latest issue, which also has Weezy on the front cover. After the article, you can also read about the first week sales estimate for Wayne‘s Rebirth album.

“I am not like you,” raps Lil Wayne, “I am a Martian.” The man has a point.

A diamond-toothed multimillionaire — who lost his virginity and survived a gunshot chest wound at age 11, became a father and a rap star at age 15, drove an Internet-wide blitz to genre-spanning superstardom by age 24, and was the first rapper name dropped by our newly elected president at age 26 — probably is not, by most standards, like you.

Is he a Martian? Maybe.

Next Tuesday Lil Wayne will enter New York’s Rikers Island to begin serving a 12-month sentence for weapons possession and we have a few indications for how this story usually goes. If you’re Lil’ Kim, you go in, release a critically acclaimed CD you can’t promote, and wind up on Dancing With the Stars. If you’re Shyne, you go in, convert to Judaism, come out a changed man, and get deported to Belize. If you’re T.I., you enter and leave jail with your career still breathing, and show signs you just might get back on course. Or if you’re Tupac — third behind Biggie and Jay-Z on Lil Wayne’s list of top-three MCs — you become the first inmate to top the Billboard Top 200, get bailed out by Suge Knight in exchange for signing to Death Row Records, and uphold that label’s gangsta ethos for the full 11 months until you’re shot to death.
