Lil 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.
