Mike Banger Talks Working With Lil Wayne, First Starting As An Intern For Him, Witnessing The Pressure Of Being The Best Rapper Alive & More

Towards the end of last year, Lil Wayne‘s former RIAA-certified, multi-Platinum and Grammy award-winning recording engineer Mike Banger sat down with Art Morera to appear on episode 46 of the Media Noche Podcast.

In this 1 hour and 30 minute interview, Banger spoke about numerous things such as working with Lil Wayne, witnessing the pressure of Wayne having the “Best Rapper Alive” title, first starting as an intern for Mr. Carter around Tha Carter days (recalls buying him Popeyes in the middle of the night), and much more. The parts about Weezy start from the 19:40 mark and last throughout the whole conversation.

PS: “YM Banger” from I Am Not A Human Being was named after Mike Banger because he produced, recorded and mixed all of the song himself!

Everything You Need To Know About The Original Version Of Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album After The Leak

Everything You Need To Know About The Original Version Of Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album After The Leak

A couple of days ago, a lot of the songs (20 in total) from Lil Wayne‘s original Tha Carter V album surfaced online. I was not going to make an article about this, but too many people are hitting me up asking about it, so I’ve decided to do what I did when the Velvet Sessions project leaked online.

Due to copyright laws, I cannot post the tracks on this website, but for those who have heard the music, I will list what has changed on each record. If you recall back to 2014, CV was originally due to drop back then, but with the long lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records, Wayne ended up re-recording the album and releasing it in 2018.

The full versions of “Mute” featuring a dope verse from Big Sean and “No Brainer” featuring a dope verse from Flow are also included in this new leak. I always tell people that Tunechi‘s best music in my personal opinion seems to be more his leaked music over official releases and hearing songs like “Life Of Mr. Carter“, “Scottie Pippen” and the hilarious “Form Good” confirms this statement even more for me.

You can check out exactly which tracks leaked from the original Tha Carter 5 project below! From the tentative tracklist we received in 2014, this now just leaves “Start This Shit Off Right” with Christina Milian and Mannie Fresh, “She Said Better Get ‘Em“, “Grindin” with Jeezy and Young Thug, “Brad Pitt” with B.o.B, “Mano Y Mano” with Gudda Gudda, and “Murda” with Flow as unreleased. If you have heard the OG C5 album, how did you like it and did you prefer it more than the official version we got nearly a year ago?
