R&B singer Keri Hilson recently talked about rapper Lil Wayne's studio grind and how his upcoming Tha Carter IV may feature vocals from Ms. Keri.
Although calling the guest spot opportunity a possibility at best, Hilson warned listeners not to be surprised if she's heard on the long-awaited LP.
Keri also says there's also a chance she could wind up doing something for Wayne's "Tha Carter IV," which is due out Aug. 29. "He has a studio on the road and he records day-in and day-out, before the stage and after the stage and every other moment in between," she notes. "Wayne and I work together very well, so it could happen while we're on tour." (Billboard)
Late last year, Hilson discussed Wayne's creatvity and rated him on a scale of 1 to 10 for hotness.
"Lil Wayne, I love Wayne, he's very creative. He does have a lot of kids -- I don't know if I could deal with that. It seems like one big happy family, he's such a rock star...Wayne is up there. He's like a seven." (Hot 97)
The rapper recently expressed that he needed better production efforts for his upcoming LP.
"These n*ggas' beats been sucking," Wayne explained in an interview. "I'm putting it out there: You producing? What y'all doing? Get right, man. Step it up. This is coming from a rapper. One of the best rappers. I ain't saying I'm the best no more, because these n*ggas is too good these days. I got old. But d*mn, y'all n*ggas' beats is terrible! [Chad Ochocinco walks into the room] These n*ggas' beats sound like Ochocinco made them." (XXL Magazine)
Young Money's Gudda Gudda recently spoke to SOHH about the LP living up to 2008's Tha Carter III.
"I think it's going to be big and I'm not just saying that because he's my homie," Gudda Gudda told SOHH when asked about the delayed project. "I'm just being honest. I think it's going to be big and it can match up to what Tha Carter III did. The expectations are really big and it's going to be really big for hip-hop when it finally comes out." (SOHH)
Tha Carter IV is slated to drop Monday, August 29th.
