Lil Wayne was unfavorable to the changes to their "Uproar" single, according to Swizz Beatz. During the January 19 episode of Mike Tyson's Hotboxin Podcast, the Ruff Ryders' head honcho revealed that the Tha Carter V song, which mainly affected his vocals, did not sit well with the New Orleans rapper.
The Verzuz co-founder disclosed that he changed some of Weezy's lyrics and used them as a hook for the song, provoking outrage from the singer.
"I sort of messed with his vocals," he said. "I talked to Mack," saying, 'This gotta be more than just a freestyle because he rapped all the way through.' There weren't any breaks."
Despite Wayne's initial reaction to the song, "Uproar" became a smash hit on Billboard's Hot 100, reaching a double platinum certification.
Wayne announced his intentions to release Tha Carter VI last year elsewhere in the Tha Carter connected universe. He took to Instagram to unveil the new album and reassure his supporters about the good news.
"Tunechi is here. Thank you," he told his supporters in the video before revealing the big news. "I'm not sure if you heard, but Tha Carter VI is on the way."
Weezy's last album, Funeral, will be released in January 2020, the seventh time his 13th studio album has charted at the top of the Billboard 200. This is Wayne's sixth album to reach the top.
