Lil’ Wayne Announces Tha Carter V

For fans of Lil’ Wayne, this moment was a long time coming…but after four years, four long years…the New Orleans legend will finally have his long awaited day. The announcement came Tuesday evening with the revelation that the release will happen on Wayne’s birthday, Thursday. And that he will be touring in 2019. The fifth installment in Tha Carter series was slated to release in 2014 following the lead-single Believe Me with Drake which coincided with the Lil’ Wayne v Drake Tour that summer. However, label disputes with Birdman and legal battles followed halting the release and sending Wayne to Tidal under Jay-Z.

This will mark the first Lil’ Wayne project to release without the Cash Money co-sign but will remain under Wayne’s Young Money label. You can pre-order Tha Carter V online.
