Lil Wayne isn't resting on his laurels after merking the game with Tha Carter IV, which sold nearly a million records its first week. Weezy's already begun working on two new collaborative albums on the horizon.
“The next project he’s working on is I Can’t Feel My Face with [Juelz Santana],”
Young Money president Mack Maine told XXLMag.com. “Elz is talented man. He’s a young legend. [Wayne’s] back working in the studio. He has that and the Young Money album.”
Good friends Wayne and Santana began recording I Cant Feel My Face over five years ago. However, most of the songs leaked online, and the final project never hit stores. But now the pair have decided to give it another go, starting from scratch with all new material. A release date hasn't been set yet, but stay tuned.
Meanwhile, Lil Tunechi and his Young Moolah protégés are planning a sequel to their gold-selling 2009 group album, We Are Young Money.
“We haven’t actually recorded one verse for that album,” Mack said. “When we were on tour, we said we’re gonna wait until we get back to Miami to get everybody out there. We have one more show in Hawaii then we’ll start recording. It wont take long. Too much creativity for it to take a long time."
Mack said that the entire Young Money camp is hard at work, taking Weezy's monster success as inspiration.
“If you follow our artists, you always see Gudda saying he’s in the studio,” Mack said. “Drake’s working on his new album now. In between he’ll be touring to promote it. Nicki works her ass off. She just came off tour with us and jumped right on the tour with Britney Spears. Tyga’s on tour with Chris Brown and trying to work on his album. Gudda, Millz, Lil Chuckee—working. They all following the format. Wayne set a standard and they all trying to follow that.”
