Mack Maine talks with Mixtape Daily about Wayne wanting to prove that the selling success of Tha Carter III hasn’t slowed his rhymes.

“On his birthday, he was saying, ‘Everyone else is putting out mixtapes, so I gotta show them that I still got it,’ ” Mack explained. “And he also said that a lot of beats are coming out that he likes, so, you know, once that happens, he’s gotta put out his own versions to the beats he likes. It’s not fair. It’s not necessary, to me. Like, what are you trying to prove? Let these little dudes have their lane for a few, man. He’s about to come and smash people’s albums.”

So far Wayne is about six songs in, Mack revealed. Young Money has been flooding the streets and the Web with mixtapes lately, as Nicki Minaj, Jae Mill, and Gudda Gudda all have product out now.

While working on No Ceiling, the Cash Money superstar is also finishing up his long-awaited rock-influenced album Rebirth and overseeing the Young Money debut, both of which are set for December releases. Those are the projects Mack is most eager to see come out.

“They the two new babies, two newborns,” he said. “The [No Ceiling] mixtape, that’s Jordan. The two albums are like rookies. We wanna see how they do their first season.”

No release date is set for No Ceiling, but Maine insists it’s just gonna drop. So get your wireless game up.
