And in a recent interview for XXL’s cover story, Lil Wayne tells the publication that he is not a fan of his recently leaked track, “Dear Anne,” as he says:
“That was actually a record for Tha Carter III that just leaked. It leaked out and everybody’s thinking that it’s going on Tha Carter IV ’cause I was actually gonna put it on Tha Carter IV . But I had been listening to it and didn’t like it. I don’t like it ‘cause the song, all the verses are old. And me being a perfectionist, I hate going with old verses.”
His Young Money partner Mack Maine and manager Cortez Bryant have a difference of opinion, and the fans are buzzing over it, so the track may just end up on the C4:
“Mack and Tez and them, they love it. They be like Man, you trippin, you killed it. I be like, Did you hear what I just said? I don’t wanna do that anymore. But I heard that the ‘Anne’ song has been getting buzzed up and everybody’s buzzin’ about it so it might end up one of those you might have to put on the album, you know what I mean. But I ain’t trippin’ on it like that; I don’t like the song. I love the beat; I love the idea. I don’t like my execution. I don’t like what I did, I don’t like how I delivered on it. The idea that I had for it, I didn’t accomplish that, what I thought I was gonna do. ‘Cause I was tryna make it a situation song. And I just don’t like it.”
