Lil Wayne Working On Two New Albums
He’s hinted at retiring while he’s still on top but it looks like Lil Wayne doesn’t plan on executing that vision anytime soon.
Weezy’s work schedule is renown for its intensity, and as he wraps up the final stop of his I Am Still Music II tour this weekend in Hawaii his right-hand man Mack Maine tells XXLMag.com new music is already being recorded.
“The next project he’s working on is I Can’t Feel My Face with [Juelz Santana]. ‘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 says another Wayne spearheaded disc will probably drop before the end of this year; a Young Money family disc to follow up 2009’s gold selling LP, We Are Young Money.
“We haven’t actually recorded one verse for that album,” Mack said. “When we were on tour, we said we’re gonna wait until we get back to Miami to get everybody out there. We have one more show in Hawaii then we’ll start recording. It wont take long. Too much creativity for it to take a long time.
“If you follow our artists, you always see Gudda saying he’s in the studio,” Mack added, noting his family’s relentless work ethic. “Drake’s working on his new album now. In between he’ll be touring to promote it. Nicki works her ass off. She just came off tour with us and jumped right on the tour with Britney Spears. Tyga’s on tour with Chris Brown and trying to work on his album. Gudda, Millz, Lil Chuckee [they’re all] working. They all following the format. Wayne set a standard and they all trying to follow that.”
In addition to those two albums for Wayne, there’s talk the next two Carter albums (V and VI) may also follow, plus a sequel to his rock-inspired effort Rebirth.
