Lil Wayne Teases 'Carter V,' 'Funeral,' & 'Dedication 6'
New year, new Weezy.
It looks like Lil Wayne is ready to release a slew of new material — including his long-awaited album Tha Carter V — judging from a cryptic new Facebook post.
On Tuesday (Jan. 3), Tunechi shared a photo featuring 2 Chainz, Gudda Gudda, and others. But it was the caption that raised eyebrows: “CV. Funeral. D6. Young Money.”
It’s unclear what Wayne meant by the post, but fans are taking it as an announcement for the upcoming releases, Tha Carter V, Funeral, Dedication 6, and a possible Young Money compilation project.
Teased since 2012, The Carter V has reportedly been finished for some time. However, it has been held up by Weezy’s $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money.
Wayne hinted at a lot of new material during an appearance on “The Nine Club” podcast in November. “Funeral is coming soon,” he said. “That’s my music. Get your roses ready. I don’t have a release date, but I have a whole bunch of good news coming soon. If you’re a Wayne fan, I know we’ve been going through a lot of tough times right now, but if you are a Wayne fan, we about to hold our heads high soon.”
In April, the New Orleans spitter teased Dedication 6, the sixth installment in his DJ Drama-hosted mixtape series. “I’ve also been working on some crazy shit for a mixtape and we just didn’t have a good name for it yet,” he said. “But it might as well just be a Dedication.”
Last month, pharma-mogul Martin Shkreli claimed he purchased the CV double album and even played a snippet of a new track. Tunechi’s camp confirmed that the song was from a Carter V session, but noted that the LP has not been turned in to anyone just yet. They’ve reportedly launched an investigation about how it landed in Shkreli’s hands.
While it looks like it will be a big year for Wayne, none of the aforementioned projects have confirmed release dates.
