Lil Wayne Photo Shoot With VIBE Magazine

Jason recently talked to Young Money’s Lil Chuckee about an upcoming collaboration he has with his YM boss, Lil Wayne. This marks their first collabo together and we should be getting the track before this year ends. The full interview will be posted on YoungMoneyHQ soon, but you can read a preview from it below:

Jason: We’ve all been waiting for your debut album a while now.
Lil Chuckee: Yeah, we gonna work on it, a lot of people are waiting on that Lil Chuckee album. A lot of people been waitin’ on that Lil Chuckee and Lil Wayne song too. I got something coming out real soon. It’s about to be retarded.

Jason: Oh really? That’s gonna be crazy. What’s the song about?

Lil Wayne & Drake Scrap Collabo Project x Weezy & Birdman Headline MTV2 Sucker Free Awards

Lil Wayne & Drake Scrap Collabo Project x Weezy & Birdman Headline MTV2 Sucker Free Awards

Earlier, Drake told XXL Magazine that him and Lil Wayne have agreed to scrap their joint project, because it would just be compared to Kanye West and Jay-Z’s Watch The Throne album every time. Drizzy is still planning to do a collabo mixtape with Rick Ross though, so I am sure we will see quite a few YMCMB and MMG collaborations on there!

“Me and Wayne scrapped the idea of a collaboration album,” Drake told XXL. “We just agreed that it would be looked upon as… It would be sort of this competition with Watch The Throne. I feel like it would get caught in this whirlwind of hype. Wayne agreed. We just said, ‘If we do it, we’ll do it down the line. But right now is not the time.'”

In other Weezy news, MTV recently announced that Tunechi and Birdman will be performing “Y.U. Mad” live at the first annual MTV2 Sucker Free Awards in Miami. The show, which will be hosted by Sway Calloway, will air on Sunday, December 4th at 11PM EST at the LIV Fontainebleau in South Beach.

Lil Wayne Has Eyes On A Collabo Project With Rick Ross

Lil Wayne Has Eyes On A Collabo Project With Rick Ross

In another excerpt from Lil Wayne‘s feature in VIBE Magazine‘s October/November issue, Weezy speaks on possibly doing a collaboration project with Rick Ross.

According to Wayne, a project with Miami rap don Rick Ross is being eyed. For Weezy, who seems to have a real synergy with Ricky as evident by their last bruising tag-team statement “John,” working with the stout rapper has become effortless. “It’s really easy,” Wayne told VIBE. “I just know how to jump in Rick’s zone and I’m sure he does the same when it’s a song with me on it. I guess it’s just some kind of musical connection.”

Wayne, who is also rumored to also be working on a joint album with his platinum Young Money artist and cohort Drake, believes that being able to collaborate with other acts is the true measure of talent. “As an artist, I can get in your world,” explains Wayne. “That’s the beauty of music for me. That’s what it’s all about: just adjusting to where I’m at musically, adjusting to the belly of the beast and making the most of it with other artists.”

This just shows that Tunechi is still working hard in the studio, as we know he is already working on another YMCMB compilation and the I Can’t Feel My Face collabo album with Juelz Santana. Maybe Wayne and Drake will scrap working on a collabo album together and just work on one with Rick Ross ❓ This would be dope, because personally I think Tune, Drizzy and Rozay are the hottest 3 rappers in the music game today!

In other Lil Wayne news, we can expect Robin Thicke’s “Pretty Little Heart” single featuring Weezy to drop next week and B.o.B’s “Strange Clouds” single featuring Weezy to drop on October 3rd.

Lil Wayne Back Working On Collabo Album With Juelz Santana

Lil Wayne Back Working On Collabo Album With Juelz Santana

According to Mack Maine, Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana are back working on their collabo album called I Can’t Feel My Face. We were supposed to get the collaboration album years ago, but they kept pushing back on releasing it because of “label politics”.

“The next project he’s working on is I Can’t Feel My Face with Juelz Santana,” Maine told XXLMag.com over the phone. “Elz is talented man. He’s a young legend. Wayne’s back working in the studio. He has that and the Young Money album.”

Mack also told XXL that we would get I Can’t Feel My Face before this year ends, along with another YMCMB compilation. He also mentioned that Weezy will be releasing another two Carter albums (Tha Carter V and Tha Carter VI), as well as a sequel to Rebirth sometime in his music career.

Birdman Confirms Lil Wayne & Drake Collabo Album Is Coming

Birdman Confirms Lil Wayne & Drake Collabo Album Is Coming

Birdman recently confirmed with XXL that Lil Wayne and Drake will definitely be putting out a collabo album after both of their solo albums have dropped:

“Wayne and I recently talked about the Weezy/Drake collabo album,” Baby told XXLMag.com. “That’s definitely going to get done.”

Birdman promises that Wayne and Drake will offer up a different sound from that of Jay and ‘Ye.

“It’s older versus younger,” Baby said. “I listened to a few songs off Watch The Throne and it feels like an older feel to me. I think with Drake and Wayne, they young. They young cats. You got 23 and 28. Then you got Jay-Z and them, who are older and really on their way out the game. Then you got Wayne and Drake and them, who are still youthful to the game. So, it’s two different types of music all the way across the board.

“But what they’re doing is great,” he added. “I think it’s great for the game, great for the business, great for retail as a whole. I just think when Wayne and Drake get together is going to be something real special also because we more youthful.”

Weezy‘s Tha Carter IV drops on August 29th and Drizzy‘s Take Care drops on October 24th!

DJ Khaled & Lil Wayne Collabo Coming In January

In the video above, DJ Khaled speaks to MTV about his upcoming single from his We The Best Forever album dropping on the Cash Money label. The track will feature Lil Wayne, and Khaled says his verse is “amazing”.

His next project is his first for Cash Money Records, and he’s looking to kick things off with a lead single that would put “The Matrix Reloaded” opening scene to shame.

“I don’t want to tell you the name of the artist yet,” he told Mixtape Daily. “I want people to be surprised. But I have my first single.”

“I can tell you for a fact that me and Wayne did work together,” Khaled said. “I’m not gonna lie, he’s on it. We’ll let that one go.”

“When I work with Wayne, I always get the most classic verses, like ‘We Taking Over,’ ” Khaled said. “And this verse with my new one, it’s … I’m not even gonna lie: It’s amazing.

“It’s one of them anthems that I do,” he added. “The streets are gonna embrace it on another level. When you hear it you’re gonna be like, ‘This is what I’m talking about.’ It’s that anthem, I got them.”

Hit the jump to watch some HD footage from Weezy, Tyga, Lil Chuckee, Lil Twist, Mack Maine and Lloyd all performing “Bed Rock” and “Deuces” at the Bayou Classic Fan Fest show in New Orleans on November 27.
