Young Money front man Lil Wayne’s upcoming album Tha Carter IV is beginning to take shape again with the announcement of the project’s first single.
According to Young Money CEO Mack Maine, Wayne’s first single will drop later this month.
“Wayne is set to release the first single from his forthcoming Tha Carter IV LP by the end of December, simply titled “6’7″.” “We definitely dropping it before the end of the year,” Mack revealed to MTV News. “We ready to go now; we getting it mixed.” Lil Wayne insider DJ Scoob Doo compared the track to frenetic fan favorite “A Milli”: “Just Think A 2010 Version Of A Milli…But On [Steroids],” he tweeted. Mack agreed with the comparison, adding, “Just make sure you all remember two words: Cory Gunz. Incredible.” Cory Gunz, of course, is the latest addition to Young Money and the progeny of late-’90s rapper Peter Gunz. Mack hinted the young MC will appear on “6’7.”
In September, Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant said fans could expect revamped tracks.
What’s more, many of the tracks on Human Being, which Wayne cut before going to jail, were “approved” to be included on his hugely anticipated Tha Carter IV but will be released now so that Wayne can fill IV with new music instead. “I know once he got out [of jail] those songs would be so old to him,” Bryant explains. Bryant says the notoriously workaholic Wayne will immediately hit the studio once he gets released and that he will most likely release another mixtape of material before turning his attention to Tha Carter IV, which Bryant now estimates won’t hit stores until next year. “He’s going to probably start from scratch,” says Bryant. “I know how he records–he’s in the studio every single day. That’s his life.”
