Report: Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter V' Gets Release Date

  /  09.12.2018

Tha Carter V finally has a release date.

Seven years after Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne is set to release the long-awaited follow-up on Sept. 21, according to the official Young Money Twitter account. They also revealed the cover art, which features a hand holding up five fingers.

Before the announcement, Floyd Mayweather posted a “V” on Instagram with the goat emoji and “21” hashtag, prompting speculation of a Sept. 21 release date. Wayne previously used athletes including Kobe Bryant to build hype for Tha Carter V in 2014.

C5 has been plagued by delays following Wayne and Birdman’s legal battle. Weezy sued Cash Money for $51 million in 2015 to terminate his contract. As a result, Tha Carter V was placed in limbo. In June, he reached a settlement with Cash Money for an undisclosed amount.

In February, Birdman promised that fans would receive the album before the end of 2018. “We’ll get that this year,” he told Rap-Up. “I’m guaranteeing you gon’ get it this year.”

Just last month, Birdman and Wayne squashed their beef onstage at Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans, where the Cash Money boss publicly apologized to Weezy. “I knew this day was gon’ come, but I didn’t know when it was gon’ come,” said Baby. “But this ni**a right here, the best ni**a, the realest ni**a, the illest ni**a. And I wanted to apologize to my ni**a worldwide.”
