A track from Lil Wayne’s upcoming album Tha Carter III has been selected as the theme for the upcoming movie Hurricane Season (formerly titled Patriots). “Tie My Hands," the duet with Robin Thicke, will have a digital release that comes with an exclusive film version of the song featuring Lil Wayne rhyming about the movie. Lil Wayne will also star in the film which features Forest Whitaker, Isaiah Washington, Taraji Henson and fellow rapper Bow Wow. Hurricane Season is based on a true story of five basketball players in Marrero, Louisiana from different high schools, who end up on the same basketball team one year after Hurricane Katrina.
"With all the tragedy that my home has suffered these last few years since Katrina, I was glad to see that someone wanted to show that through everything New Orleans also has some positive things going on,” Lil Wayne said. “I am also very happy that Hurricane Season is not only my first major part in a motion picture movie, but a movie about where I grew up.” Hurricane Season hits theaters nationwide on Christmas Day and Tha Carter III hits stores June 10th.
