Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant says "Tha Carter V" will not drop on May 5th, and claims it's better than "Tha Carter III."
Drake announced on stage the other month that Lil Wayne's highly anticipated Tha Carter V would be arriving on May 5th. Weezy F fans instantly got excited, but since then, we haven't heard so much as a whisper from Wayne music-wise. That's not to say he hasn't popped up in the news, he did just this week when he praised/criticized his Young Money signee Nicki Minaj for her track "Lookin' Ass Nigga." Nonetheless, we definitely haven't received anything Tha Carter V related.
Today, Cortez Bryant, Lil Wayne's manager, has confirmed the album will not be released on May 5th. He did not provide any other release date, and he did not say the album had been pushed back. From what we've heard about it, it sounds like they're attempting to do some sort of Beyonce move. Time will tell.
Cortez does say in the video clip that Tha Carter V is better than Tha Carter III. He says, "it's gonna be fucking amazing." When asked when it'll come out, Cortez says, "you'll see."
