[artist id="510062"]Lil Wayne[/artist] may strike a diminutive figure physically, but on the microphone, the rapper is anything but small.
It's fitting then that in a year when he was largely absent due to a [article id="1651483"]prison sentence[/article], the Cash Money Records superstar marks the end of 2010 with a track that speaks to his burgeoning heft: Two of his protégés, Drake and Nicki Minaj, became superstars this year, making Weezy that much bigger in stature.
According to Young Money boss [artist id="3192629"]Mack Maine[/artist], Wayne is set to release the first single from his forthcoming [article id="1652216"]Tha Carter IV LP[/article] by the end of December, simply titled "6'7"."
"We definitely dropping it before the end of the year," Mack revealed to MTV News. "We ready to go now; we getting it mixed."
Lil Wayne insider DJ Scoob Doo compared the track to frenetic fan favorite "A Milli": "Just Think A 2010 Version Of A Milli...But On [Steroids]," he tweeted.
Mack agreed with the comparison, adding, "Just make sure you all remember two words: Cory Gunz. Incredible."
Cory Gunz, of course, is the latest addition to Young Money and the progeny of late-'90s rapper Peter Gunz. Mack hinted the young MC will appear on "6'7"."
There's no official timetable for Tha Carter IV, however, Wayne is set to shoot a number of videos shortly for the album and in support of his most recent collection, I Am Not a Human Being.
Tracks from I Am Not a Human Being were originally slated to appear on TCIV, but Wayne ordered the material to be released as a part of the earlier project, which was released while he was still behind bars.
Now, he's finishing his new album, which will consist of material he wrote while imprisoned. [article id="1651570"]Writing down his rhymes[/article] is a process the rapper abandoned a few years ago in favor of a free-flowing style.
"[Wayne]'s talking bananas. Some of the rhymes were actually written in jail. First time you all are gonna hear Wayne write in a minute,"
Mack revealed. "He actually sat down and wrote this time. It's amazing."
