Mack Maine discusses the rift between Lil Wayne and Cash Money, as well as the release date for "Carter V".
Lil Wayne recently expressed frustration with both Cash Money and his mentor, Birdman following the latest of many pushbacks of his upcoming studio album, Tha Carter V. Weezy seemed adamant to part ways with the label, but whether through his four album contract, or some reasoning with Birdman, the rapper announced earlier in the week that things were all good with him and Cash Money.
The president of the label, Mack Maine, weighed in on Wayne's comments in an interview with Miami's 99 Jamz, exlaining that C5 will be on its way soon enough. "He's touching up the album and about to start another special project for the people." said Mack. "I can't give a definitive date [for C5]. I can just say first quarter for sure... It's coming out. Don't get it twisted like it's not coming out."
Maine then touched on the apparent rift between Wayne and his father figure, Birdman. "I wouldn't pinpoint anyone personally... That's my uncle and my brother that you're talking about," he shared. "I got an optimistic, positive vibe about everything. It's just some business that's gon' need to be handled... Once that's handled we're going to keep moving. And it's getting handled as we speak... Everybody has their breaking point... I support Wayne 1,000 percent. I feel like this matter will get resolved. Period. If I'm still around it'll be resolved.
