Earlier this year, Lil Wayne told MTV News he would retire after dropping Tha Carter V, but after sitting down for an interview on "RapFix Live" this week, it's abundantly clear that there are still multiple projects coming from Weezy over the next few years.
During the episode, Wayne confirmed that he still plans to drop his DEVOL album, a new Big Tymers project with Birdman and Drake and Like Father, Like Son 2 with Birdman.
The original joint project was released in 2006, led by the single "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," and Weezy said there's already plenty of recorded material that can be used to put the project together.
Lil Wayne And Birdman Confirm The Big Tymers Return
"We haven't started working on that yet, but we have so many songs together, so all it takes is a little sharpening, and we have an album," Wayne said when asked if the LP was still coming. "That's been the formula forever, though. It's never been the [right] time, but in reality, we record every day, and it's for whatever it's for."
Lil Wayne doesn't remember having seizures.
He added that he's usually so busy recording features that he rarely has time to work on his own music. "Nowadays, thank God, when I go to the studio every night, I always have to do something for someone else, and then I get to work on whatever I can work on."
And in terms of Wayne calling it quits on recording for good, Birdman will stand behind whatever move he makes next. "To me, he works so hard, you never saw no human do what he do," Stunna said. "He's definitely a machine, and whatever decision he makes, I'mma support that. Whatever he do, we're gonna do it together, that's just how I feel. So if that's how he feel, then that's what it is. But I never saw someone work as hard as him and put in as many hours as he's put in and put his life on the line for music and his family and his team. I never saw that in no individual, ever."
