Lil Wayne Covers XXL
Weezy F. Baby is larger than life itself in the latest edition of XXL. Shaheem Reid spoke with Young Money boss in the new issue about how he knew that the album was ready & how Wayne chose the tracks for his upcoming album Tha Carter IV. XXL’s July/August 2011 issue will hit newsstands nationwide on July 12.
Asked, when he knew that the album was ready, Wayne said:
“You don’t. When they tell you. When [manager Cortez Bryant] call me and tell me and say, ‘You got such and such date is your deadline to stop,’ I be like, ‘Aight.’ ’Cause I never stop recording, obviously. So it’s just on him to say, “Okay, stop. We’re gonna pick these songs, and that’s the album.’ That’s how we do it.”
Fans might ask what fills the contents of such songs? Weezy explains:
“What is good about me is that I’m an interesting muthafucka. I’m Dwayne Michael Carter period! Whether I’m a rapper or not, I’m interesting. And that’s what my album’s gonna be about: me and how interesting I am.”
