It sounds like the oft-delayed, recently canceled joint album between Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana is back on again. After Weezy broke the news two weeks ago that he was moving on from recording the collaborative effort I Can’t Feel My Face, hip hop fans assumed the LP was dead. Not so fast.
BET.com caught up with Santana who reveals that the project still has life and the duo will eventually get back in the studio after taking care of some personal business.
“I spoke to Wayne recently, before the interview and right after the interview, we gon get it,” Santana explained to BET.com. “I guess at the time it’s like he said he moved on, people making it seem like he moved on and he was saying that he was never going to do the I Can’t Feel My Face. We spoke about that, to make a long story short we definitely going to get back into that.”
As previously reported Wayne blamed the latest delays of the project on Juelz’s recent legal problems.
"I actually got at [Juelz] 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."
The Dipset rapper did agree he had some issues that got in the way of the recording process.
“He did reach out to me when he came home ‘like yo I think we need to capitalize on the album,” Juelz said. “At the time my studio had got raided by police so you know it was kind of a real tight situation for me. I was used to doing things one way and I couldn’t really do it that way. This was the studio I had for five years. I had a lot of music that was lost in the process so it was just a down time for me."
“He had just came home he was ready, he sent me a couple records I didn’t really send them back at the time,” Santana added.
Now that the duo is back on the same page, Santana believes that after they work on their solo projects they’ll find the time to finally finish I Can’t Feel My Face. In the meanwhile he’ll focus his energy on The Reagan Era and The Reagan Era Continues mixtapes.
