Lil' Wayne Taking His Time W/ Carter III ''I'm A True Perfectionist''
"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."
Though Wayne said he had "nothing to say" about his recent arrest in Arizona on drug charges, he promised fans that the multiple delays on his album have only enhanced the final product.
"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."The album features guest appearances from Hurricane Chris, Corey Gunz, Jibbs, Mack Maine and Lil Mama, among others, along with production from Jim Jonsin, The Alchemist and Cool and Dre. The first single is the forthcoming "Lollipop" featuring Static, which is scheduled to hit radio shortly.
The album is expected to drop this spring, but Weezy fans can hear the rapper on any number of collaborations in the meantime.
"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."
