Hip-Hop Rumors: Is Lil' Wayne Retiring? Plus, Did He Cut Yeezy From His Album?
Lil' Wayne wants you to know that he has many other passions in life besides music. In fact, music may soon be taking a back seat in his life, because he wants to focus on some of his other interests. Check out what he told Sway in the MTV Special, MTV First: Lil' Wayne:
“I’ve been rapping since I was eight years old. That’s a long time. I’d like to do so many more things, and when I like to do something, I end up loving to do it real quick. When I love to do something, I’m fully focused on it and it only. Music is sometimes not that it.”
“I know ya’ll want me around for a little bit and Carter V is my last album."
Whoa! Do you really believe that Lil' Wayne will hang up the mic after the Carter V? Well, don't fret just yet, before his self-proclaimed last album, Weezy will be blessing us with I Am Not a Human Being II on February 19...unless the album gets pushed back again! So far it looks like this album will be a lot better than part one of the album, which was a true dud, according to some hardcore Wayne fans.<iframe src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/embed/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:859366/cp~id%3D1697837%26vid%3D859366%26instance%3Dmtv%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Amtv.com%3A859366" height="288" width="512"></iframe>
Weezy's upcoming album will feature a "banging" new song featuring Drake and Future called "B*tches Love Me". But don't expect to hear a Drake verse on the album. Weezy says Drizzy's only contribution on this album will be his guest hook appearance on "B*tches Love Me".
“He gave me one of them banging hooks, so I told him the hook was so amazing, he didn’t need to say nothing else on the album. I already know that song is probably gonna be one of the biggest songs on the album.”
Hmm, I wonder if there is any truth to the rumors that Drake and Weezy are on the outs? His statement above sounded a little shady to me. What do you think?
According to the interview, so far Nicki Minaj hasn't laid anything down on the album, but Wayne hopes to get her to drop a verse on a song called "Lay It Down" produced by Diplo.
A few months ago in another interview with MTV (Is that the only outlet Lil' Wayne will talk to?), Lil' Wayne told them the following:
"Yeah he got some music on there. It's crazy, actually I don't want to give too much up but he's got a big hand in the album, you'll see."
Well, it looks like Weezy decided to scrap all of that "crazy" music that Kanye contributed to him, and has taken Kanye West off of I Am Not a Human Being II completely! What the?! Instead Kanye West will be packaging the album through his DONDA creative company. Check out what Weezy said about it below:
“He wanted that. He was like, ‘I wanna package Wayne’s album.’”
“I’ma let ‘Ye do what he do. As long as it ain’t nothin’ out the box crazy. ‘Ye is ‘Ye, he’s a genius.”
Well, Yeezy did the cover and packaging for 2Chainz album, T.R.U. Story, and that turned out great, so hopefully he will do the same for Lil' Wayne. But I still have to wonder why Wayne decided to omit all of the Kanye features and music from his album? Is there trouble brewing in this relationship, or did Weezy just decide to take a different direction?
