Lil Wayne Talks “Tha Carter V”, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter V, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of Billboard‘s Fall issue, which will be available on newsstands September 15th.

For his cover story, Weezy spoke on a lot of things including Tha Carter V, his children, tweeting, 2 Chainz’ wedding, seizures, features, Nicki Minaj, suicide, retirement, greatness, Drake, and more.

One interesting part from the story is that they reveal the outro on Tunechi‘s C5 album will be about attempting suicide and it will sample British R&B singer Sampha’s “Indecision” song:

“When he was 12, Wayne came across a gun in his mother’s house and shot himself in the chest, just missing his heart. In the past, he has called this an accident. But on the new verse he plays, Wayne admits this was a suicide attempt, undertaken after his mother told him he would no longer be allowed to rap. The track, which samples British R&B singer Sampha’s brooding but hopeful 2013 song ‘Indecision’ and will be the album’s outro, was on the original album tracklist, but Wayne added new lyrics this summer, following the suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.’

Also during their conversation, we get confirmation that Young Money Entertainment now solely belongs to Tune, but their distribution deal with Republic Records remains in place. You can check out some excerpts from the interview and pics from the photo shoot below!

Chris Brown Calls Lil Wayne The GOAT For His “Suicide” Rhymes, Juelz Santana Teases “Tha Carter V”

Chris Brown Calls Lil Wayne The GOAT For His Suicide Rhymes, Juelz Santana Teases Tha Carter V

Taking to his Instagram account, Juelz Santana uploaded a photo of the fake Tha Carter V billboard, which is 100% photoshopped, with a caption teasing Lil Wayne‘s upcoming album.

With two words that us Wayne fans are certainly familiar with, Juelz wrote: “Soon Come #Carter5 @LilTunechi”. Do you think this could mean Santana will be featured on C5?

In other news, Chris Brown also took to his Instagram page to call Tunechi “THE FUCKING [GOAT]” with a clip showing Tune‘s rhyming skills on his “Bloody Mary” song that features Juelz Santana.

You can check out both posts from the two music artists below! My only concern is why does it take a viral video showing how Weezy rhymed “suicide” in a verse to make everyone on social media jump on the bandwagon? Did no one actually listen to the verse when the song came out at the start of this year?
