Last week, Lil Wayne’s right-hand man Mack Maine told MTV News that the New Orleans MC’s first expected single from Tha Carter IV, “6’7,” ” would be like “A Milli” but “on steroids.”
Weezy, however, corrected him on Tuesday (December 14) when he appeared on satellite radio station Shade 45’s morning show with DJ Drama and blogger Karen Civil, in his first extensive interview since his release from prison last month. (Wayne spoke to MTV News on the red carpet of his welcome-home festivities in Miami.)
“It’s a monster, actually,” he told Drama. “Hopefully, it shows people where I’m at lyrically. Better than everybody.”
But is “6’7″ ” a high-powered “Milli” on steroids?
“Nah,” Wayne said. “Human growth hormones. It’s a very tall record.”
The track is reportedly produced by Bangladesh, who helmed the frenetic “A Milli” as well, and will feature Young Money/ Nick Cannon signee Cory Gunz.
According to Wayne, he’s also preparing to shoot a video for the clip with iconic hip-hop music director Hype Williams.
So far, since his release, the only new Wayne material has been his contribution to Bryan “Baby” Williams’ “Fire Flames” track.
But Wayne warned that since his imprisonment, his skills have only increased.
“I would say so,” he told Drama, when the DJ asked if he’d improved lyrically compared to before his time in Rikers Island. “I would say, yeah, because it don’t matter where I went, I try to be better than my last [project].”
