Lil Wayne Talks New Carter III Details

Posted By on January 9, 2008

The Carter III seems to be getting close as Wayne was recently in Miami to shoot artwork for the album. He let some details fly as he was shooting…"The Carter III is coming in 2008. I don't want to give no months, no date," he said. "I got a gang of singles [on Carter III]. [It's] produced by my homeboy Diesel. He's also a Young Money affiliate. He's down with us. He's a producer/singer/engineer. He does it all. I have my artist featured on the song. Her name is Chanell. We already have a remix featuring Brisco and Lil' Boosie."

He added that for the "Showtime" video, "We're gonna get Gil Green or Benny [Boom] to direct. I really don't know. They're all my brothers. The concept is really 'Showtime,' just performance. Me and my artist Chanell gonna play a lot with the video. It's gonna be very animated but straight to the point. Colorful. Y'all [should be looking] to be entertained."

Of course Wayne isn't sure which songs will be on the album since he's
recorded so many songs for the album besides "Showtime". Every hip-hop
producer you can name contributed to Tha Carter III, including
Timbaland, David Banner, Jay Bezel from the Diplomat camp, T-Mix,
Mannie Fresh, Cool & Dre, Just Blaze and even Wayne himself.

"Me and my homeboy Diesel, we got a Kanye West track and added some
drums to it," he said. "I don't know what songs [the record company] picked. I just know the intros and the single."

"I have never done nothing with Mariah Carey, and I would like to,
because I love older women," the 25-year-old said. "I'm attracted to
older women. It's my thing. Mariah Carey, she might need a dude like
me. I do my thing."
