Young Money's Nicki Minaj has become the latest artist from Lil Wayne's label to speak on his upcoming jail bid and explained when he would be heading up north to begin.
In addition to Wayne, Nicki also spoke on Young Money's upcoming albums.
"December 22nd, as well as Lil Wayne's Rebirth album," Nicki said about the Young Money Project dropping on the same day. "I don't know [why Drake isn't on Rebirth], you gotta ask Lil Wayne and Drake. I don't have anything to do with that but I do know Drake is probably gonna be on Tha Carter IV. I would like for [my album] to be, third quarter. I would like it to be third quarter of 2010 because I have a lot of features that are gonna be out at the beginning of the year and I want people to get the chance to know me. Really know me...[Lil Wayne] is going to be up there in February. I'll [visit him] as often as I can. I mean, he's gonna be in New York and I'm from New York, so, I would love to just come up there as often as I can. But he's gonna be, there's gonna be so many people there so you know, I'm sure it'll go by in like, days, to him. It'll probably be a very weird experience but I think at the end he'll come out stronger, like, he always does. Nothing ever fazes him really." (Jenny Boom Boom TV)
Cash Money's Jay Sean recently said Wayne has seen the ups and downs of stardom.
When asked if Wayne seemed blase about serving his upcoming prison term for gun charges, Sean says that Wayne is blase about a lot of things: "He's just seen it all and done it all. He's seen so much in his life. He's got all the money, he's had all the girls. I think all that drives him is to stay on top. So he's looking at this like, 'Oh OK, let's get this out of the way and get back to work.'" (CNN International)
Hot Boys' B.G. recently spoke on seeing his former labelmate Lil Wayne prepare for an eight to ten month jail sentence.
"Eight months?," he questioned in an interview. "Sh*t, man, I done ten months standing on top of my head. So, it shouldn't be hard for him. I wish he was in New Orleans, where it'da be better for him. New York got a lot of love for him. But you know how n*ggas try to test n*ggas who on top of the game or whatever. Me personally, they a have to put me in [general] population. 'Cause I'll fight. They couldn't put me in no 23/1. I couldn't live like that. So, I mean, what he rap about, the true him 'bout to come out, whether he be in protective custody or whether he be in population. Every jail is different. I never been to Rikers Island. I been to jail in Atlanta. I been to jail in Texas. I been to jail in Detroit. I been to jail in New Orleans. I never been to jail in New York so -- I done seen DVD's on how they be slashing people and doing this, doing that. But, you know, I'm a man. And I could live anywhere. You could put me in the woods with the lions, tigers and bears [and] I'ma find a way to survive." (Hip Hop DX)
Young Money's singer/rapper Drake also shared his reaction to Wayne's time last October.
"He's dealing with it well," Drizzy revealed in an interview. "Wayne's not usually gonna open up emotionally and tell you how he's really feeling about anything. He's kinda more concerned about getting as much music as he possibly can, so that when he's in there, people are still satisfied musically with Lil Wayne product, and that's just the mind of a true businessman. I'll just do what I can to keep the whole Young Money/Cash Money team going, and I just want to play my part as a team member and keep the brand strong until the boss gets home...He's like superhuman. I don't think anything could really break his concentration or his zone when he's in there. I definitely didn't think this would be the outcome of it, but I hope it will add to him selling a million records again. It's an unfortunate situation and I hope that he'll be able to position it where his release is a day where everyone's excited and they're just excited about his new album. I hope he manages to market it the right way." (Rap-Up)
