The Young Money/ Cash Money juggernaut is gearing up for a summer takeover.
Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated album, Tha Carter IV, is set to drop May 16 . And now the Birdman is scheduled to follow with his next release, Bigger Than Life, due July 7.
The YMCMB boss’ first two singles will be “Get Money,” featuring Wayne and Mack Maine, and “Why You Mad,” featuring Weezy and Nicki Minaj.
“We work whenever we wanna work,” Birdman told MTV News about the making of his forthcoming set. “We always have to have access to a studio, 24/7. We couldn’t be on tour if we didn’t have a way to record or if Wayne didn’t have it. So whenever we wanna work, we can. That’s how we live life: we do how we want to whenever we want to.”
Last year, just before Wayne finished his well-documented prison sentence, Birdman said he and his protégé would likely release another Like Father, Like Son project after Weezy wraps Tha Carter IV. The New Orleans native explained how the entire team was working hard while Wayne was away, resulting in a stream of music that should see the light of day this summer.
“Everybody just working hard, energized about him about to come home,” he said at the time. “We worked, but him being gone — that was just a left turn in life. We wasn’t expecting anything like that but we had to deal with it.”
