Lil Wayne Talks Ja Rule Sentence, Prepping "Carter IV"

During an interview with DJ Drama and Karen Civil, Wayne reflects on the 2007 night he and Ja Rule were arrested, and his upcoming album.

While Ja Rule got little sympathy from rival emcee 50 Cent for his pending two-year jail sentence, the rapper he shared the stage with prior to the 2007 arrest that led to his Tuesday sentencing had some words of encouragement for Ja.

“That’s super crazy and very disappointing,” Wayne told DJ Drama and Karen Civil during an interview on Shade 45 Satellite Radio. “Me and Ja were kinda locked up together. We was in the same holding tank and everything that same night. We went to court that next day together. And to know he got them two, and I’ve already dealt with the situation and came home. I would imagine it’s a hard pill to swallow.”

Ja Rule and Lil Wayne performed together at the Beacon Theater in July of 2007. Both emcees were arrested in separate incidents on July 23 and eventually charged with criminal possession of a weapon as well as drug possession charges.

During the interview, where topics ranged from fake concert promotions to the new look Miami Heat, Wayne confirmed that Tha Carter IV is slated for a February 2011 release. The album will likely feature some of Wayne’s first written material in years—as he said he spent the majority of his nine-month prison sentence writing rhymes. The first single, 6’7” was released earlier this week, and Wayne expressed confidence in its reception from fans.

“[It’s] a monster…it’s a beast,” he added. “Hopefully it shows people where I’m at lyrically…It don’t matter where I went. I try to be better than my last regardless.”

The single features Cash Money member Cory Gunz, and Wayne explained that while he wrote the treatment for the upcoming video, he will be assisted by famed director Hype Williams.

    Over-rated song but what else is new with wayne??

  • dlcrossdresser

    I knew wayne was going to do a Carter 4. See he only put all those last 2 albums to keep his name around. that's why they only sold 300-500,000 because people knew he was putting out bullshlt. Hopefully people don't look at the title and buy the album like they did jay-z blueprint 3. So if Carter 4 looks anything like the albums he put out this year it's def. a rap for youngmoney :-)

    Cory kills nothing. Wayne went off on this single. everyone saying cory killed it just cause they are too bitch to admit that Wayne is back for the top spot of hip-hop. Make a no-ceilings-esque track a fucking single, straight rapping ripping shit for 4 minutes? you are welcome! if this single cathces heat like a milli did, thats gonna be more for hip-hop than Kanye's good fridays.

    more important *than lyrics and beats

  • Anonymous

    don't hate on Wayne.. that fool is sick.. the only thing more important that lyrics and beats is originality.. and Weezy is as original as they come.. when you hear a song with Wayne on it, you already know it's Wayne.. he has a style all his own.. and he makes good music.. not everything always has to be about "deep lyrics" and songs with "deep meaning".. sometimes music should be FUN!. and that's where Wayne comes in..

      @Final, Unless they actually did something personally to you, I'm not quite sure where all this unwarranted hate is coming from. In all honestly, you do make some valid points but unfortunately, it seems as if you're missing the underlying point...the point I'm referring to is what MUSIC is to FANS. "True/Hardcore" fans of music have a passion for good quality music NOT how many records were sold or how dope a video is. Of course it money, fortune & fame adds to the success of an artist but if you're true to your art form then you have a passion to create music for you & your fans -ppl who like & appreciate your music. 411: It's 'kinda-sorta' like NBA players...Eddy Curry from the Knicks is making $11,000,000 this year but he's the biggest bum in the world vs. Landry Fields making $400,000 but he is currently One of the Best NBA Rookies & dood wasn't even selected in the 1st Round of the 2010 NBA Draft! My case in point is that just because you're making money or selling records doesn't make you a better player/rapper! I personally loved Lloyd Bank$ album! Sh*t is hard and that's what the industry is missing! We got all this ringtone/pop/commercial that sells but the music is horrible! Look, I am a music fanatic! I own over 1,500 CD's! That's over 20,000 cataloge of "original" music! I also use to play guitar in a New York Hardcore band but left to pursue my education, graduated from college, worked as a money market broker in WTC for 5 years, top financial firms for another 4 years and now I own/run/manage a club promoting company in which I have hosted some of the most popular Hip-Hop/R&B celebs & artists in the world! (You can find all the pics on my website or Facebook page) Whenever I get a chance to have a quick convo w/ them, I always talk about how important it is to stay true to your music...don't let the industry brainwash & conform you...making your $$$$ -yes, but don't sell-out in the process! In closing, I hear ya' that he didn't sell (hek! I was at Best Buy on 5th Ave. in the city and they sold-out at 2pm because they didn't have enough copies!) but it's still a HOT album w/ dope lyrics, some sick collabos & tight production!
