After years of rumors and false starts, the Lil Wayne/Juelz Santana collaboration album is officially dead.
In a recent interview with MTV News, Wayne confirmed that he has moved on from the album, I Can't Feel My Face, revealing that many of the songs originally planned for the album have now been reclaimed for a new project of his own.
I Can't Feel My Face was originally delayed, in part, by Lil Wayne's eight month prison sentence. But when Weezy got out, he said Juelz was unable to work due to legal problems of his own.
"I actually got at [Jue]lz when I got out [of jail] and told him, 'Man, I think it's time we really capitalize on that,'" he said. "[Now], he can't work how he wants to work because they shut down his studio. I sent him some music and he didn't send them back in the time-fashion that I work. I started putting extra verses on those songs and I've moved on."
Wayne said he would use the accumulated material for a follow up to his 2010 album I Am Not a Human Being.
"Now what probably would've been I Can't Feel My Face, has now turned into I Am Not a Human Being II," he said.
Juelz had previously confirmed to BET.com that the duo had in fact recorded new material last September, but a release date was not set. Since that time the Harlem MC has had several run-ins with the law.
