If it sounded too good to be true when Drake announced that Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V was set to drop May 5, turns out, it was.
When pressed about the May 5 release date, Lil Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, responded “No, You’ll see it’s gonna be f—in’ amazing, it’s gonna be that good.” Lil Wayne was asked if this was the last Carter solo project he responded with, “Twenty-five to 35 million [dollars] would get me to do another solo album after this, I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes. And it’s definitely the final Carter album.”
No new release date for Tha Carter V has been announced just yet. Young Money’s latest compilation album, Young Money: Rise of an Empire, which features multiple appearances from Lil Wayne, was released March 18.
