Lil Wayne is finally ready to unleash to ‘Tha Carter V.’
The elusive set had been at the center of a bitter legal battle between the rapper and former mentor Birdman.
However, with that wrangle in rearview following a settlement in June (details of which were kept under wraps), it’s at long last “the time” for Weezy and his fans.
In a video announcement, the Hip-Hop titan confirmed that the long-awaited set will arrive this Friday (September 28th) – a day after his 36th birthday. It’s been seven years since the 2011 release of ‘Tha Carter IV.’
In the clip, the Young Money maestro explains:
“On my birthday, I actually have something special. I will be releasing Tha Carter V on my birthday. Y’all hung in there with me, so I can’t do nothing but thank y’all for all the love and all the passion and every ounce of anything.”
He went on to add:
“I always give all of me, but with this album, I’m giving you more than me. You got to always remember that this is years of work. This is four, five, six years of work that you’ll be listening to. I hope you enjoy it. You don’t have to love it, you don’t even have to like it, just hope you enjoy it.”
