Lil Wayne Speaks On “Tha Carter V” & The “Free Weezy Album”

Written by Nigel D. / 02.19.15

Lil Wayne

Wayne says that Tha Carter V, which he finished recording some time ago, is on ice for now. “It’s super-done,” he says. “Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit. I would have released it yesterday if I could. But it’s a dead subject right now. It’s a jewel in the safe. It’s that stash-house money.”

In the meantime, he’s been putting in 12-hour studio shifts on an all-new project: the cleverly titled The Free Weezy Album, which he plans to release for free in March. “I’m working on it every day, man,” he says. “I guarantee it’s going to be something dope. If you don’t want a musician being creative, don’t get The Free Weezy Album.”

Full Interview: Rolling Stone

Lil Wayne speaks on his legal issues with Cash Money and upcoming projects with Rolling Stone. Looks like “Tha Carter V” won’t be coming out anytime soon but the “Free Weezy Album” will drop in March.

Nicki Minaj Speaks On Success Of “The Pinkprint” & Meek Mill

Written by Nigel D. / 02.13.15

mnk

Pinkprint has been out for almost two months now. Has the response surprised you in any way?

I’ve gotten such great feedback that it’s only really inspired me to do more music. I never connected with people on this level. I think Pinkprint opened me up to so many more people who probably didn’t understand me before—it’s just such a real album that anyone who has ever gone through any kind of relationship issue can understand. And I think that the overall production is so much greater. Everything shows so much growth.

How is the single life? Are you partying? What’s a Friday night like?

I’ll just say that I haven’t had this much fun in years. Yeah, I am partying, and I am freer, and I am just enjoying myself and my life.

You’ve been looking cozy with [rapper] Meek Mill on Instagram, and people are saying that you two are dating. Is he a part of the fun you’re having?

Sometimes we hang out, and when we hang out, we have fun. [laughs] This is what I want to say about him: People think for some strange reason that we just started becoming friends recently. We’ve been friends for a very, very long time, and he’s been around for a lot of things that I’ve gone through. And that’s all I’ll say about that.

Audio: Kanye West Speaks On The Grammys, Yeezy Boost & Possibly Working With Taylor Swift

Written by Nigel D. / 02.11.15

On his comment about Beck disrespecting artistry:

And when I said that thing about respect artistry, I think it came off the wrong way, and that was a mis-wording on my part because obviously Beck is one the most respected artists and respects artistry. But I felt — and this is my opinion and he’s his own man and he’s not wrong and we’ll still go play basketball and stuff [unless] he doesn’t want to do it — but I felt that even though the Grammys some times gives awards to people who you wouldn’t think should win in the category, as a respect to artists, we mention the other artist’s name in our speech. And that was the point I was making about it. There’s like many of times I gave other people my award, literally made them come up onstage. Maroon 5, when they won best new artist, [Adam Levine] mentioned me because it was the College Dropout and [it had] 10 nominations and all that.

“Jay Z Has Some Of The Sickest Lyrics Ever, But I Would Never Buy His CD.” – Young Thug

Written by Nigel D. / 02.04.15

GQ: Are you a music lifer?
Young Thug: Yeah, I’ma be here forever. I don’t want to rap forever. But I want to be rich forever.

Why not rap forever?
I don’t want to be 50 years old and rapping, man. I’m pretty sure nobody wants to do that. I’m pretty sure Jay Z don’t wanna rap right now.

Why is it such a young man’s game?
If you’re 30, 40 years old, you’re not getting listened to by minors. Like, Jay Z has some of the sickest lyrics ever, but I would never buy his CD, just because of my age and because of his age. By the time I turn that old, I ain’t gonna be doing what he’s doing.
Full Interview: GQ

Young Thug speaks on not wanting to be a rapper at a later age. Do you agree minors don’t listen to older rappers?
