Lil Wayne-the carter III
Tha Carter III is the sixth studio album by American rapper Lil Wayne, released on June 10, 2008. It is presumed to be the final album of Tha Carter trilogy
Tha Carter III was named the "#1 most anticipated album of 2007" by XXL, but was changed to a 2008 release date. The cover, featuring a baby picture of Lil Wayne, follows designs of album covers done by American rappers Nas (Illmatic) and The Notorious B.I.G. (Ready to Die).
Lil Wayne stated that producers will include The Alchemist, Cool & Dre, Deezle, Jim Jonsin, Just Blaze, Kanye West, Mannie Fresh, The Runners, Timbaland, Danja, Arash, and will.i.am. In an interview with HipHopCanada.com, Solitair of the Black Jays stated that he and Cipha Sounds produced a track for Lil Wayne's "new project" (possibly referring to Tha Carter III). The Runners have stated that they have produced three tracks for Tha Carter III. Lil Wayne revealed that he has written a track for Eminem, which he has yet to send to him. He described this song as the "craziest". However, it is thought that Eminem turned down the request.
Collaborators include Fabolous, T-Pain, Brisco, Bobby Valentino, Betty Wright, Static Major, Robin Thicke, Jay-Z, Juelz Santana, Kanye West, and Busta Rhymes. MTV reported that Wyclef Jean worked on a couple of tracks for the album and that a song featuring Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, and Timbaland is likely to appear on the album. However, that Timbaland produced track did not make the final cut. David Banner confirmed that he will be credited for five tracks on the final cut of Tha Carter III. Swizz Beatz has stated he is also working on the album.
The video for the second single, "A Milli", was set to be released in May. Multiple versions of the track were be included on the album as "skit-like" tracks, featuring artists such as Tyga, Cory Gunz, Hurricane Chris and Lil Mama. Another artist, 13-year-old Lil Chucky, is also set to appear on one of the "A Milli" skits. None of the skits made the final cut of the album.
When asked about how many tracks Kanye West has contributed, he answered: "On the first visit he had 5 joints. On the second visit he gave me a CD with 15 joints on it. I then told him to slow down and he left me alone. But we got a good three on the album." He confirmed that he had a few tracks on The Leak that are produced by Kanye West
