Kyle Kramer from Noisey chopped it up with STREETRUNNER earlier this month to chat with him about releasing the remastered versions of leaked Lil Wayne songs from 2006-2007 and how he thinks they were leaked in the first place.
The producer also talked talked about getting sued for “Playing With Fire” that ended up in the track being removed from Tha Carter III, the first time he met Tunechi at The Hit Factory Criteria Recording Studios in Miami, if Tune has changed as a person over the years, and wanting to release a Greatest Hits album of all the leaked Wayne songs.
STREETRUNNER even discussed producing Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana‘s “1 Arm“, what he remembers about the I Can’t Feel My Face era, personally wanting to hear the project over Rebirth, his reaction to first hearing Weezy was going to record a rock album, and more!
Jay Sean speaks about a new supergroup called Cash Money Heroes in a Press Conference when he was in Paris recently. The supergroup consists of Lil Wayne, Birdman, Kevin Rudolf and Jay himself which will be Rap, Rock, Pop, and R&B music. The supergroup will be making an album and the “I Made It” record was just an introduction. Jay Sean also says the Cash Money artists will be working with Young Money artists a lot more, for example Jay will be working with Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Lil Twist etc. He also mentions that there will be another YMCMB tour later this year, and speaking about Cash Money, it was Baby’s birthday yesterday, so LilWayneHQ would just like to say a Happy Birthday to him for yesterday!
Hit the jump to see another Jay Sean interview were he speaks a little bit on Weezy, and also Big Paybacc from G-Unit proves that the 40 Cock incident with “Lil Wayne in the car” was total bullshit and he made it all up:
Check out this interesting article Rolling Stone Magazine did on Lil Wayne from their latest issue, which also has Weezy on the front cover. After the article, you can also read about the first week sales estimate for Wayne‘s Rebirth album.
“I am not like you,” raps Lil Wayne, “I am a Martian.” The man has a point.
A diamond-toothed multimillionaire — who lost his virginity and survived a gunshot chest wound at age 11, became a father and a rap star at age 15, drove an Internet-wide blitz to genre-spanning superstardom by age 24, and was the first rapper name dropped by our newly elected president at age 26 — probably is not, by most standards, like you.
Is he a Martian? Maybe.
Next Tuesday Lil Wayne will enter New York’s Rikers Island to begin serving a 12-month sentence for weapons possession and we have a few indications for how this story usually goes. If you’re Lil’ Kim, you go in, release a critically acclaimed CD you can’t promote, and wind up on Dancing With the Stars. If you’re Shyne, you go in, convert to Judaism, come out a changed man, and get deported to Belize. If you’re T.I., you enter and leave jail with your career still breathing, and show signs you just might get back on course. Or if you’re Tupac — third behind Biggie and Jay-Z on Lil Wayne’s list of top-three MCs — you become the first inmate to top the Billboard Top 200, get bailed out by Suge Knight in exchange for signing to Death Row Records, and uphold that label’s gangsta ethos for the full 11 months until you’re shot to death.
Lil Wayne‘s Rebirth has seen constant delays over the past year, but for once, the album is not being pushed back.
Contrary to reports that it had been moved to June, the rapper’s oft-delayed foray into rock is still scheduled for release on February 2, Universal Motown confirms to Rap-Up.com. Exactly one week later on February 9, Wayne is likely to be sentenced and report to prison for almost a year on gun charges.
Rebirth surfaced online when it was prematurely shipped to around 500 Amazon.com customers last month. The final tracklisting may change due to the leak.
