Lil Wayne supporters eager to hear Tha Carter IV can applaud as its completion is nearing. Mack Maine recently confirmed that the LP is a couple of songs short of being finished. The finalized version may come as soon as David Banner adds his touches, something that he’s done on previous Carter discs.
“I was in the studio all night workin’ on this Carter IV,” Maine recenty told XXL. “We pretty much finished, to be honest; we probably need about two more songs. We got David Banner coming in tonight, so hopefully he’ll come with somethin’. We try to make sure—he kind of makes every album. He made Tha Carter III, and made [We Are Young Money].”
After this, Maine noted that the album could be finished before the weekend hits, adding that Carter IV will show people Weezy’s “maturity.” To set this new “mature” LP up, Wayne teamed up with Hype Williams for a video that seems more like a “movie,” according to Maine.
“[Wayne] actually shot his first video with Hype Williams, which is big. We just finished a four-day video shoot, which is like a movie to me.”
The album is said to feature usual comrades as well as “surprise” guest appearances. While no official list of producers has been released, Maine acknowledged that Detail and Swizz Beatz will definitely make the album.
