Lasanna ACE Harris Speaks On Co-Producing Lil Wayne Famous Off Tha Carter V & Wayne Influence In Hip Hop

Lasanna “ACE” Harris recently chopped it up with DJ Booth about co-producing Lil Wayne‘s “Famous” song featuring his daughter Reginae Carter off Tha Carter V and how influential Wayne is in hip-hop.

“Wayne is one of the most influential artists in hip-hop, period, and has birthed so many offspring.”

The producer talked about how he worked on the “timeless” track with Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph and Sam Bruno around the same time that they was working on beats for Nicki Minaj and her The Pinkprint album.

A week after they had mastered “Famous” back in 2014, Tunechi and Birdman had their public fall out, which went on to last over 4 years and left him being very disappointed thinking that the record will never see the light of day.

ACE then revealed he got an e-mail of out of blue from Weezy‘s team a week before the album was due to be released and explained how it feels “to be a part of a historical moment in hip-hop”. You can read everything he said below!

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!
