Whether we’re talking about The Detox, a debut album from Jay Electronica, or Tha Carter V, there are many projects that fans pretty much chalk up to the game as far as getting an actual release. The long-anticipated Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana mixtape “I Can’t Feel My Face” is one of those projects.
First announced nearly a decade ago, most fans have figured that it is probably best not to hold their breath while waiting on the collaboration between Juelz Santana and Lil Wayne. Still, fans may have just received a glimmer of hope at a release from Santana himself.
A few days ago, Santana responded to a fan’s inquiry about the current status of the long- awaited album, saying “That thing already Done bro Jus Know.” While Juelz offered no other details regarding an official release, little news can potentially be good news in this case. After all, a finished product is always better than a work in progress when fans have been waiting this long, but how long should fans expect to wait for the official release or at least an announcement?
Lil Wayne is no stranger to releasing surprise projects, including the surprise release of “T-Wayne”, his collaborative mixtape with T- Pain, in the summer of 2017. During the same summer, he also released a surprise EP to celebrate his “independence” from Cash Money Records during his highly publicized spat with Birdman. Lil Wayne also dropped a subtle hint on Instagram earlier this year in the form of a picture of him and Juelz in the studio with the caption “Do y’all want ICFMF,” followed by the thinking emoji.
So, are these subtle hints pointing to fans finally getting to hear the album they have been waiting over 10 years for this summer, or will they have to hold out even longer alongside the people still waiting for Tha Carter V? Only time can tell, but inquiring eyes and ears will definitely be on the lookout for official news on the long-awaited release.
