Fans have been awaiting Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana’s collaborative project, I Can’t Feel My Face, for more than half a decade, but Weezy recently confirmed widespread presumption that the album will not actually come to fruition.
“I actually got at Elz when I got out and told him, ‘Man, I think it’s time we really capitalize on that,’” Wayne told MTV’s “Hip-Hop POV” recently. However, the two were never able to get together on wax again. “He’s going through a legal problem. He can’t work how he wants to work because they shut down his studio. I sent him some music and he didn’t send them back in the time-fashion that I work.”
Instead of just letting the songs sit unfinished, President Carter turned what could have been a wasted opportunity into a new one. “I started putting extra verses on those songs and I’ve moved on,” he continued. “Now what probably would’ve been I Can’t Feel My Face, has now turned into I Am Not a Human Being [II].” That project is a follow up to I Am Not a Human Being, released in the summer of 2010.
Wayne and Juelz worked together a number of times in years past, notably on songs such as “Homerun,” “Black Republicans” and more.
In other recent Tunechi news, last week it was confirmed that Weezy inked his first shoe deal with Supra, as well as that he earned ten nominations for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Other hip-hop nominees for the show, which is set to air on May 20 on ABC, include Drake, Jay-Z & Kanye West, Nicki Minaj, Wiz Khalifa and Big Sean.
As of press time, there is no confirmed release date for I Am Not a Human Being II. —Adam Fleischer (@AdamXXL)
