Lil Wayne talks Carter 3; new tattoo on face; works with Jay Z

Lil Wayne knows it's time for his Tha Carter III LP. First he said February, then we heard March, now Weezy has pegged April as his new due date.

Blame it on creativity.

"I make it worse for Universal [Records]," Wayne said Tuesday,
sitting on his tour bus. "I keep doing new songs every other day. I
don't stop working, so I don't know when they gonna get that.
Everything I do be better than the last, like, 'Oh, this gotta make the
album!' "

Lil Wayne
knows it's time for his Tha Carter III LP. First he said February, then we heard March, now Weezy has pegged April as his new due date.

Blame it on creativity.

"I make it worse for Universal [Records]," Wayne said Tuesday,
sitting on his tour bus. "I keep doing new songs every other day. I
don't stop working, so I don't know when they gonna get that.
Everything I do be better than the last, like, 'Oh, this gotta make the
album!' "

With all the shuffling and recording going on, Wayne said he has material to take him all the way up to Carter 10.
For his third installment, though, he's worked with Hurricane Chris,
Jay-Z, Corey Gunz,
his artist Tiger (younger cousin of Gym Class
Heroes
' Travis McCoy), Lil Mama, Busta Rhymes, Juelz Santana, Fabolous,
Baby, Brisco, Dre
from Cool & Dre, and Ludacris on a duet called
"Eat You Alive." Alchemist, Swizz Beatz, Cool & Dre, Kanye West,
Jim Johnson
and his own in-house producer Diesel supplied the beats.

The first single, at least for now, is called "A Millie," a
hard splatter of relentless wordplay, unnerved style and a down-bottom
bass beat. His second single, aimed at the ladies, is called "Lollipop"
and features acclaimed songwriter Static (Aaliyah, Timbaland, Missy
Elliott
).

"That's me. I love music," he said about the new tattoo on his
face that reads "I Am Music" in red letters. "I found a love for music.
I owe it all to a lot of people in the game. They don't even know."
T-Pain and Prince are among those he names.
