Producers Mannie Fresh & Key Wane Discuss Their Involvement With Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V”

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.”

Lil Wayne Named Songwriter Of The Year At 2014 BMI R&B Hip Hop Awards

Lil Wayne was honored with the “Songwriter Of The Year” prize last night at the 2014 Broadcast Music, Inc. R&B/Hip-Hop Awards, which took place at the Pantages Theatre in Los Angeles, California.

As he was currently in Philadelphia on tour with Drake, Wayne could not be in attendance to pick up his trophy. This is also not the first time that Weezy has won this award as he won it back in 2012, 2010, and 2009.

Congratulations to Tunechi!
