Shaheem Reid sat down and spoke with Lil Wayne in the new issue of XXL magazine, and he asks Wayne how he chose which tracks he would use on Tha Carter IV, and he also asks Wayne about his recording process.

Here’s what Lil Wayne had to say: “What is good about me is that I’m an interesting muthafucka. I’m Dwayne Michael Carter period! Whether I’m a rapper or not, I’m interesting. And that’s what my album’s gonna be about: me and how interesting I am.”

The issue with Wayne on the cover hits news stands July 12th.
