Hiphopdx reports that, Lil Wayne is set to release a fourth project this year titled Velvet, according to Young Money president Mack Maine.
During a newly published interview with REVOLT, Mack Maine outlined the label’s plans for 2017, which include new projects from Drake and Nicki Minaj, among others.
“We wanna get that Carter V out,” Mack Maine said. “Wayne also has a dope project called Velvet. We want to get that out. Drake dropping top of the year. Nicki got some features that — I’ve been in the studio with her lately — that she’s just killing. She also gonna be working on her solo project and she’s dropping.”
Wayne’s releases are still contingent upon how he works out his legal issues with Birdman, Cash Money and Universal Music Group. The Cash Money CEO spoke on the case in a recent episode of Travis Scott’s .wav radio, saying Tha Carter V is “definitely coming out.”
Mack Maine also revealed that Lil Wayne has formed a group called “L.A.T.” (Loyalty Amongst Thieves) with fellow Young Money artist Gudda Gudda and new Dallas signee HoodyBaby.
“They going bananas,” Maine said of the group before elaborating on even more releases. “Demeo dropping his mixtape top of the year, Kingpin… We got some shit in the chamber for y’all man. We gonna be all over your radio, all over your TV screen. If you got any problems with us, you not gonna be able to avoid us.”
