Lil Wayne
With it’s original 2009 release date long past, Lil’ Wayne’s long awaited album, Tha Carter IV has been one of the most anticipated albums of any genre. Beset by Wayne’s excursion into Rock (the ill conceived Rebirth album), weedcarrier showcases (the Gold selling We Are Young Money) and jail time, the followup to 2008’s triple platinum Tha Carter III has been through a number of changes, with some songs being cherry picked for I Am Not A Human Being (a place holder that was released while Wayne was serving a year in jail for a gun charge,) while the rest got scrapped upon Wayne’s release from jail in favor of newly recorded material.

So far, only two songs from the project have surfaced, the Bangladesh-produced “6 Foot 7 Foot” feat. Corey Gunz and “John (If I Die Tonight)” feat. Rick Ross. While  I still think “6 Foot 7 Foot” is one of the more promising joints we’d heard from Wayne in a while and the song with Ross seems like perfect fodder for the streets, neither single matches Tha Carter III’s one, two punch of “Lollipop” and “A Millie”. For a rapper with Weezy’s profile, fresh out the can, Wayne’s buzz doesn’t seem to be on the level you’d expect it to be and it seems Universal Records agrees because the album has just been moved from it’s May 16th release date to an unspecified date in June.

While this doesn’t necessarily bode well for Tha Carter IV, if you remember, it took a bunch of leaked music before Wayne released “Lollipop” and Tha Carter III had a single that was commercial enough to sell the album. Last week, a tracklist for Tha Carter IV hit the ‘nets and I for one think it looks way too ill to be true. Still, if any artist can manage to gather together such an impressive line up of features, it’s Lil’ Wayne.

Tha Carter IV Tracklist  (Allegedly)

1. Tune This
2. Team Player (Feat. Birdman)
3. Fore Play
4. They Love Me (Feat. Drake & Nicki Minaj)
5. John (If I Die Today) (Feat. Rick Ross)
6. No Competition
7. Holy Grail (History) (Feat. Kanye West)
8. Carter Cash (Feat. Jay-Z)
9. 6 Foot 7 Foot (Feat. Corey Gunz)
10. Play My Game (Feat. Tech N9ne)
11. Anne (Feat. Swizz Beatz)
12. Street Life
13. Hard Talk (Feat. Bon Iver & Game)
14. Fall From Grace (Feat. Eminem)
15. Brain Dead (Feat. Gucci Mane)
16. No Trust
17. Maybe She Will (Feat. Drake & Rick Ross)
18. My Legacy

The Carter IV in stores sometime this summer… Maybe?  But don’t worry about the lack of a solid release date. When this album drops, you’ll know, trust me.

    even banks loner anti social non personable ass dropped a compilation album with his supposed “industry friends in high places”

    lil wayne is recruiting eminem again..

    man, i was just discussing this at work about how Hov is the ONLY artist i can think of who’s managed to load each one of his releases with a smorgasboard of the best production known in the galaxy every time out post Vol. 1.

    consider his producer formula:

    Dre
    Kanye
    Neptunes
    Timbo
    Swizz
    Premo

    and for album fillers he always has a sturdy Just Blaze track to toss around. i mean, in all unbiased honesty, it’s hard NOT to be the most successful rapper ever if this is all you’ve had to rap over for 90% of your career.

    I wouldn’t be suprised by the collab TBH. Wayne seems to be searching for something to put a spark back into his career, and after he thrived post-kissingbabygate, doing a song with mr. I’m Gay wouldn’t even be out of the realm of possibility.

    6 Foot 7 Foot & John Lennon (I’m guessing that’s the real title of the track but Lennon’s estate wouldn’t have ever signed off on that shit) aren’t enough to sell this album.

  71. Me any my homie were talking, and he said Hip Hop fans complain because the radio and tv only plays commercial garbage, but if the fans bought the music still then we would see the good quality Hip Hop artists on a mainstream level much more. Made me think for a minute like it’s true, our favourite mc’s don’t sell much but these pitbulls, flo ridas and whoever sell cause girls and white folks still buy their shit on iTunes, but Slaughterhouse and Nas and whoever can’t sell cause we end up downloading their shit (I still buy 5 cd’s a year, still waiting on an AOTY worthy record)
    But instead of coming home and flicking through the 10 bullshit ass music channels I got and finding out the best thing on offer is Tinie Tempah-Wonderman, I really wish I saw Pac Div, Wretch 32, Slaughterhouse, KRIT and all them with mad videos on replay..
