In October, rap star Drake revealed his interest in hearing Wayne’s delayed Tha Carter V album amid his Cash Money feud.
Last month, Wayne likened his YMCMB woes to the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh.
“It’s interesting. It’s interesting. It’s a perfect example of, that you aren’t bigger than the game. It’s a perfect example of that. You’re not bigger than the team and once you’re off the team, it’s not, we don’t care. Once you’re off the team, we don’t care. We’re still a team and we have to conduct ourselves as such, and we have to make the most for us. Reason being, I’m going through the same situation myself. So I know how it is. Everything I’ve done for them, they wouldn’t be them without me and, but I’m off the team so it’s, ‘screw him as long as we can, make sure we gonna screw him as much as we can, and when we can’t no more we’ll see what happens. That’s what it looks like they’re doing to Bosh” (“His & Hers”)
Recently, Young Money president Cortez Bryant revealed initial plans for Wayne’s Tha Carter V album to come out for free-99.
“We had a deal cut with Google where they were going to back the album and put it out for free. When I presented it to Slim and Baby, they didn’t get it and the label was against it. They basically told me ‘Yo, we can’t put the album out.’ When I had to tell Wayne that, he was like ‘What? You can’t stop me, you can’t hold me back. I got to tell my fans because they don’t deserve this and I’m ’bout to air it out. Before I got off the phone to call his lawyer to let him know we was about to have some sh*t, TMZ was on the other line.” (Rap Radar)
In a recent interview, Wayne promised he had completed his contributions to Tha Carter V.
“It’s done, sitting and wrapped as is. I just listened to it for the first time in months the other day. I had forgotten every single word on it, because I work every day. I popped it in, and I was like, it’s still so much better than everything I’ve ever heard. Not what’s going on right now — everything I’ve ever heard.” (The New York Times)
