Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V" Not Dropping May 5
Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant says "Tha Carter V" will not be released on the date Drake mentioned, advises fans to "pay attention this week."
Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant recently shed some light on Tha Carter V, an album said to be the last solo LP from the New Orleans rapper. Contrary to the information Young Money artist Drake revealed at a show last month, Bryant says Tha Carter V will not be released on May 5 and merely offered a “you’ll see” in regards to the project’s possible release date.
“You know I push dates back and shit. So, I’m not gonna release that date. I’m not gonna release that date til I really, really, really know what it really, really, really is. Pay attention this week,” Bryant said while speaking with NeverNotDopeTV.
While performing at the House Of Blues in New Orleans in mid-February, Drake informed those in attendance that Tha Carter V would be released on May 5.
“You wanna hear Lil Wayne at his best,” Drake said in a video posted by motahiphop.com. “If you wanna hear Young Money at they best, I mean it’s Carter V May 5. Just know we about this shit for real.”
Lil Wayne has yet to announce a date for the album, but has commented on the kind of content fans can expect on the final installment in Tha Carter series. During an interview with MTV earlier this month, Wayne stated that he would be “more careful” with Tha Carter V content-wise.
"I'm more careful about what I'm doing and trying to be more careful about what I'm saying and things like that,” he said while speaking with MTV. "There were times where I didn’t care. It’s not that I didn’t care. It’s just that I knew that I had people above me or around me that was gonna make sure whatever I said or shouldn't have said or whatever I did or shouldn't have did. Well, now, I'm those people, and I'm telling me what I should do and what I shouldn't say and it’s awesome. It’s coming together dope. I think the Wayne fans are gonna like it.”
