When Lil Wayne is released from jail Thursday, he won't even wait to land before he starts recording. His team plans to bring studio equipment on the jet so that he can start recording new songs on the way home from New York. "We're gonna deal with that microphone, no trip," Bryan Williams (a.k.a. Birdman), co-founder of Lil Wayne's Cash Money label, says in the new Rolling Stone. "You can't keep him out of the studio."
Birdman says that Lil Wayne has been writing lyrics like crazy during his eight-month sentence at New York's Rikers Island. "He hasn't written out rhymes since [his early group] the Hot Boys," Birdman says. "There's a different swagger coming from Wayne, different things to talk about." The lyrics he's been writing are for his upcoming "Tha Carter IV" album which is set to be released early next year. Manager Cortez Bryant says that Wayne's next album will reflect his time in prison. "He's had time to take everyting in from the years leading to his going in," Bryant says. "We've been at such a fast pace, moving, moving, moving, that he's finally been able to put some things in perspective."
