Aside from legal issues, Santana previously spoke on his new Reagan Era mixtape.
"The Reagan Era, the long-awaited, a lot of people have been looking for that solo mixtape," Santana said on 106th & Park. "I'ma do a video for every song on my mixtape. I'm just gearing up for my album which is titled Born To Lose, Built To Win. It's on Def Jam Records. It's gonna be classical, monumental, so right now I'm getting the ball rolling. I don't believe in just dropping one record and the fans, even though they know me and they know who I am, I've been away for a little while so I need them to get used to me again, know what I'm doing, ya dig what I'm saying? So we're gettin' the ball rolling, we're rocking and rolling, just featured on Lloyd's first single. About to go work with someone else in L.A., don't know if I can spill the beans on that. A big Def Jam artist, so, Born To Win, Built To Lose is the album, we still don't got a date yet." ("106th & Park")
He also spoke on his collaboration project with Lil Wayne earlier this year.
"The sh*t with me and Weezy, bottom line is we still got records done, a bunch of records," Santana explained in an interview. "We did a lot of records, a lot of politics and bullsh*t promotin' the album, promotin' the album. His album came out and he wound up going through the roof with everything so it's still a lot of politics. Couple records got leaked a few weeks ago, that just goes to show people we been had records already, those were like a year and a half old. We got about 25 records just sitting in the computer. Hopefully, we can put the album out the right way through a major label but if not, f*ck it, we gonna give the streets what they want. The music is done. So they gonna get it one way or another because it's not like we gotta go in the studio and record." (Forbez DVD)
