Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V is still awaiting a release date, but Weezy says the power is in his hands. In a new interview, Tunechi addressed the oft-delayed album’s status.
“Of course you’re going to see Tha Carter V,” he told Q93. “I just don’t want to put it out the wrong way. Honestly, I can do what I want at any time. The fans deserve it to be right and that’s how it’s gonna be. I’ma make sure it’s right. I can drop whatever I want to drop. That’s why I keep dropping whatever I want to drop. But I’m not gonna give them Carter V.”
Weezy’s statements come amidst his ongoing legal battle with Birdman. Wayne is suing his label Cash Money Records for $51 million, demanding that they pay him before he will release Tha Carter V.
When asked if he’s still tinkering with the project, Wayne said that it’s all wrapped up and ready to go. “Carter V is done,” he added. “It’s on the shelf, just ready to drop…Carter V is ready to be listened to. It’s just gotta be listened to the right way and like I said, I’m not gonna give it to them wrong.”
Weezy, who is currently on the “World Wide Weezy Tour,” was also asked whether he feels nervous about President Donald Trump while traveling abroad. “There’s no nervousness at all because I feel like I’m so far away from anything that gotta do with that,” he said. “That’s way left. Any fan of mine already know Wayne ain’t got anything to do with it.”
Finally, Tunechi spoke about his upcoming third annual Lil Weezyana Fest, which is set to take place Aug. 25 in New Orleans. Gucci Mane and Wayne will co-headline this year’s show, which will also include appearances from Young Boy NBA, Rich the Kid, and Kodi Shane. Plus, Weezy said, “there will be guests and they will be very special.” Asked if Nicki Minaj will hit the stage, he added: “If she feel like it.”
Up next, Wayne is wrapping up the “World Wide Weezy Tour” in Finland this evening. Plus, he’s teased several projects, which may or may not be released this year, including Carter V, Funeral, and Dedication 6.
