Lil Wayne Discusses Tha Carter III in Detail

Posted By on February 1, 2008

After just getting out of an Arizona Jail, Lil Wayne is discussing his new album, Tha Carter III. "I think this album is going to be one of my best albums," Weezy told Billboard in his first interview since his arrest. "I'm a true perfectionist. I might have to work out a deal with Universal to shoot a video to for all these songs, that's how crazy they all are. Every one of them is a movie."

The album has been delayed a few times and Lil Wayne says the delays have only made the album better. "It's one of those albums people are really waiting on, so I made it so that whatever is on it will stick with you forever," he said. "I'm taking my time with it. And I'm giving artists I respect and people I want to do songs with – not songs the label fixed – an opportunity to collaborate." With production from Jim Jonsin, The Alchemist and Cool and Dre, plus collabs with Hurricane Chris, Corey Gunz, Jibbs, Mack Maine and Lil Mama, the album is supposed to drop this Spring. The first single, "Lollipop" featuring Static, is scheduled to hit radio shortly.

"I've found out that I love doing music for others," he said. "You're making history when you're making music with somebody else, for somebody else. Plus, I find that when I do that, it doesn't get leaked. And when it does, it doesn't do what it does when it's one of my songs. I get a real joy. And it's another reason why I was able to wait so long to put another album out – because these features keep me eating and making money."

Mary J Blige recently released a new song "Just Fine (remix)", which features Lil Wayne. Listen to the song now, click here!
