After settling his legal disputes, Wayne is finally ready to release the project.
It’s all good news for fans of the influential rapper, but there’s an exciting new development as well. At a recent performance in Miami, Wayne revealed that he had taken part in a meeting related to the release date for Tha Carter V. “Just to let y’all know, I had a meeting today,” Wayne says in a clip acquired by HipHopNMore. “It wasn’t a long meeting… the meeting was about the release date of Tha Carter fuckin’ Five!”
Weezy did not share any further details regarding the project’s release, but it appears that the rollout is back in motion. It is unclear if Wayne will release Tha Carter V in the form it was completed in a few years back, or will be including brand new music on the album. In 2016, he was very confident that the material he’d recorded would stand the test of time. “I just listened to it for the first time in months the other day,” he told the New York Times. “I had forgotten every single word on it, because I work every day. I popped it in, and I was like, it’s still so much better than everything I’ve ever heard. Not what’s going on right now — everything I’ve ever heard.”
