Lil Wayne Recording Two New Albums with Juelz Santana and Young Money
Just because 'Tha Carter IV' has sold over one million copies doesn't mean that Lil Wayne can now sit on his laurels. In fact, the 'How to Love' rapper is hard at work on two more rap albums.
Young Money Entertainment president Mack Maine told XXL that Weezy is recording music with his good friend Julez Santana on their long-delayed collaborative album. "The next project he’s working on is 'I Can’t Feel My Face' with [Juelz],” he says. "Elz is talented man. He’s a young legend. [Wayne’s] back working in the studio. He has that and the Young Money album."
The 'I Can't Feel My Face' album has been five years in the making with numerous delays holding up the project. Unfortunately, after several songs they recorded together leaked online, the duo nixed the LP altogether. Now they want to take another stab at it and record new material for the project. No release date has been set but Maine believes Wayne will drop something new by the end of the year.
Weezy is also recording a sequel to Young Money's gold-selling album 'We Are Young Money.' The 2009 collection, which boasts the hit 'Bedrock,' introduced rap fans to YM's all-star players including Drake, Nicki Minaj, Jae Millz, Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Lil Twist and others.
“We haven’t actually recorded one verse for that album," says Maine. “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."
Along with those two albums, Carter albums V and VI may also follow, plus a sequel to his rock-inspired LP 'Rebirth'. It's safe to say that Lil Wayne has a tremendous work ethic that has proven to be his greatest asset throughout his rap career.
