Lil Wanye Is Going to Watch What He Says on New Album


Young MoneyLil Wayne is toning it down. The rapper has revealed that he plans to censor himself on his his long-awaited album Tha Carter V, arriving later this year.

“I’m more careful about what I’m doing and trying to be more careful what I’m saying,” Lil Wayne said in a recent interview with MTV News.

Wayne says the new album will be very “different, because I’m older and wiser, and I know more things and I know more about myself now.”

It seems Wayne has learned his lesson about recording controversial lyrics after he lost an endorsement deal with Mountain Dew as a result of a line about civil-rights figure Emmet Till on Future’s “Karate Chop,” for which he later apologized.

“I knew that I had people above me or around me that was gonna make sure whatever I said or shouldn’t have said or whatever I did or shouldn’t have did,” Weezy said of the past. “Well now, I’m those people, and I’m telling me what I should do and what I shouldn’t say.”

The newest installment in Tha Carter series will serve as the follow-up to last year’s I Am Not a Human Being II.
