Lil Wayne Officially Announces ‘Tha Carter V’ Release Date

One of the most anticipated albums of the last few years or so has been Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V, but the rapper’s legal issues with his label Cash Money Records played a huge role in constant delays.


When the royalty and other disputes with Birdman and Cash Money were finally settled back in June, fans were hoping that the album will see the light of day soon. Last week, a new track from the veteran rapper called ‘Just Chill’ surfaced, featuring French Montana and Justin Bieber. Weezy took to Twitter earlier today to tease an “announcement” which we were hoping will be something to do with Tha Carter V. Thankfully, we were not disappointed.


Here it is. Lil Wayne has announced that Tha Carter V will officially hit stores on his birthday, September 27 (Thursday at midnight). Watch his announcement below and pre-order the album here. All purchases will include access to his upcoming tour in 2019. Earlier today, Nivea revealed that she’s featured on a song alongside Drake on the album.
