According to Young Money president Mack Maine, Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter IV could drop the same time he comes out of jail.
“Tha Carter IV plans we had and still have are to put Tha Carter IV out the day he comes out [of prison],” Mack said yesterday in New York. “He had so many songs for Tha Carter IV, we said let’s just put these 10 songs out [on I Am Not a Human Being] and double-back for Tha Carter IV. He has more songs for Tha Carter IV that are still strong.”
And here’s how the song selection takes place:
“It’s basically me, him, Baby and Cortez Bryant mapping it out,” Mack explained. “We had a listening session out here. It was me, Baby and Cortez. I let [Wayne] know these are the ones we picked. He already picked six of them from back there. I let him hear it over the phone. I book him a studio session — kinda like I did for the ‘Light Up’ up remix with Drake. I book him a studio session and let him listen [to tracks] over the phone. ‘Do you like this one?’ ‘Yeah?’ “
You can’t be serious!
