Lil Wayne's highly anticipated Tha Carter V may see the light of day after all. In spite of Tunechi's lengthy legal battle with his record label, Cash Money, the rapper recently assured fans of the album's imminent arrival.
While speaking with Wild Wayne of Q93, on Friday (Aug. 18), Weezy gave an update on the fifth installment in his introspective series. “Of course you’re going to see Tha Carter V," the rapper said. "I don’t want to put it out the wrong way. Honestly, I can do what I want honestly at any time."
“The fans deserve it to be right and that’s how it’s gonna be," Weezy continued. "I’m going to make sure it’s right. I can drop whatever I want to drop. I keep dropping whatever I want to drop. But I’m not going to give them Carter V the wrong way.”
While Wayne has kept fans at bay with the release of his In Tune We Trust mixtape, the arrival of Tha Carter V could signify a major turning point in the rapper's career. Weezy and Birdman's strained relationship has played out rather intensely over the past year, severely impacting the release of Wayne's projects. Birdman, however, is just as invested in Tha Carter V's release.
Earlier this year, the rap mogul teased the release of the much-anticipated project in an interview with Billboard. “You will get it this year,” Birdman told the publication. “Me and Wayne will be alright. I’m going to make that work. That’s my son and I love him, and we’ll make it happen.”
And Weezy seems to echo those same sentiments. “Carter V is done," he told Wild Wayne. "Carter V on the shelf just ready to drop… I move on and keep it moving and give them what I’m doing right now. But Carter V is ready to be listened to. It’s just gotta be listened to the right way. Like I said, I ain’t gonna give it to them wrong.”
