Apparently, that Tha Carter III re-release that was announced this week is more than just a way for Lil Wayne’s record company to milk a few more bucks out of the album. Instead, in this video interview with MTV, Lil Wayne says that the album will feature all new songs, will be called Tha Carter III: The Rebirth, and will be more experimental.
Now, this naturally brings up the question, “Why not call it Tha Carter IV?” But Wayne says he’s worried people might not like the new tracks, so naming it Tha Carter IV might not be the best option.
However, it seems like not every track will be new, in a separate interview with MTV, he said that the album would feature a bevy of “A Milli” remixes and a duet with Ludacris that was supposed to be on Tha Carter III. So make of that what you will. Lil Wayne: a man of contradictions. [MTV]
