Lil Wayne is already eyeing his next project.
Just weeks after releasing the deluxe edition of Funeral, the Young Money boss has Tha Carter VI on his mind. In an interview with Variety (via HipHop-N-More), he was asked which Carter album was his favorite and his response seemed to hint at the sixth installment in Tha Carter series.
“I ask every Lil Wayne fan this question and curious to hear your thoughts: what’s your favorite Carter?” asked the reporter. Weezy responded by teasing Tha Carter VI: “My favorite Carter album is the next one.”
Wayne released Tha Carter V in September 2018 following a highly-publicized battle with his former label, Cash Money Records. The project debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 with 480,000 units, earning the second-largest streaming week for an album of all time. His most recent album, Funeral, was released in February followed by the deluxe in late May.
During the Variety interview, Tunechi also opened up about his popular Young Money Radio show on Apple Music, which recently hit 2 million listeners. “I’d love to take YM Radio as far as it can possibly go because I truly didn’t expect it to be so satisfying for the consumer and that’s always first,” said Wayne. “I damn sure didn’t think I’d enjoy the whole hosting thing but I’m having a blast with it.”
He once again admitted that he sometimes forgets his own lyrics and has to look them up on the internet. “I ALWAYS have to go to the internet for my lyrics. ALWAYS!!” said Wayne. “For songs you wouldn’t believe. It’s been everything from ‘6 Foot 7 Foot’ all the way to ‘How To Love’!! I’m just forgetful.”
On Friday, Wayne celebrated the 5th anniversary of his Freezy Weezy Album by releasing it to all streaming platforms for the first time after its TIDAL exclusivity.
