Lil Wayne Wraps ‘Tha Carter IV,’ Announces Release Date

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne is about to take over. After a long wait, the Young Money leader has announced an official release date for Tha Carter IV.

Following the release of his Cory Gunz-assisted single “6 Foot 7 Foot,” Weezy explained that his highly-anticipated album is already in the can and will drop on May 16. “Tha Carter IV is done,” he told MTV News. “All they need to do is tell [manager Cortez Bryant] to stop sitting on it. Tez, stop sitting on Tha Carter IV and put the album out.”

Bryant confirmed the release date last night while backstage at the “I Am Music II” tour kickoff in Providence, Rhode Island. “May 16, believe that,” added Tunechi. “It can come out tomorrow ’cause I’m so finished … Tha Carter IV will be dropping May 16. If you’re not doing anything, do me.”

This marks the hip-hop martian’s first album since being released from jail in November. Though a final tracklisting has yet to be revealed, Nicki Minaj and Drake have recorded guest verses for the project.

    Anyone willing to bet it’ll be pushed back about 6 times before he actually puts it out? Wayne is like the king of push backs…

    Carter IV won’t sell a milli because its gonna leak? That is a dumbass statement, Carter III leaked and it sold a milli. I doubt Carter IV will sell a milli, 400k-500k, unless Wayne drops a monster single or two over the next 2 months and goes on a killer promotional spree, I don’t see him doing it again though, even Eminem only managed to do 700k with Recovery, so I can’t see Wayne topping that, unless he turns into a 20 year old white girl who’s only a good studio singer and all her songs sound the act same but dumbass teenage white girls buy it anyway…
