Scans Of Lil Wayne Cover Story For The Source Magazine April 2008 Issue

I have decided to share scans from Lil Wayne‘s cover story for the April 2008 issue of The Source magazine for #ThrowbackThursday today, which took place during a recording session on his tour bus for “Let The Beat Build” and “Lollipop” off Tha Carter III.

In his interview, Weezy spoke on his recording process, ghostwriting for Dr. Dre, being born to rap, why he is the best rapper alive, and shared his thoughts on people saying he is doing too many drugs.

“Everybody talking ’bout ‘the boy on too much drugs, Baby need to take him to rehab’ and all this shit. I want you to know one thing: a junkie can’t do what the fuck I do. Can’t no drug, can’t no bitch, can’t no money faze me. I am the ultimate high. It ain’t what I’m on, it’s what I do, and making great music is what the fuck I do.”

Tune also talked to C. Vernon Coleman II about playing the guitar, believing every album he has put out is a classic, his daughter Reginae Carter, owning all of his publishing and masters, and more!

Un Kasa Reveals Juelz Santana & Lil Wayne Are Planning To Release A New Version Of I Cant Feel My Face

In a brand new interview with Mikey T The Movie Star from Report Card Radio, Dipset’s very own Un Kasa revealed Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne have a whole new joint album together that they plan to release.

At the 4:45 mark of their conversation, Un Kasa shared stories of witnessing the recording process for the original I Can’t Feel My Face project by saying Juelz and Wayne recorded a few collaborations together in the studio, but the majority of it was sent back and forth via e-mail.

The Diplomats associate goes on to recall how Santana would e-mail a song to Tunechi and then 30 minutes later, Tune would e-mail him back with the verse done. Un Kasa also spoke on how Weezy recorded 2 songs for Skull Gang (Juelz’s hip-hop group) on the day that he found out he went Platinum in the first week with Tha Carter III that are still unreleased to this day.

You can check out the interview in a video after the jump below. Even though Un Kasa reveals the OG version of ICFMF never dropped because neither Juelz Santana or Lil Wayne could figure out the business side of it, are you looking forward to hearing the new version of their long-awaited collab album?
