The release of Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated album “Tha Carter V” will finally see the light of day very soon, according to the Grammy Award-winner.
Last month, the New Orleans-native reached a legal settlement with Cash Money Records founder and CEO, Birdman to move forward and dismiss the suit. In 2015, the rapper sued the label for $51 million, claiming the label violated his contract terms and withheld money following numerous delays of “The Carter V.”
Now free of his contract, with ownership of his music and assets, Weezy recently reassured that his long-awaited album is finally dropping. During a June 24 club appearance in Miami, the rapper teased the project’s upcoming release.
“Just so you know, I appreciate all the respect, and all the appreciation and all the honor I got for the situation that I was in,” he said on the microphone to those in attendance. “Just to let y’all know I had a meeting today, it wasn’t a long meeting. Just so y’all know the meeting was about the release date of ‘Tha Carter-fucking-V.’”
Following his June 7 settlement, Wayne’s attorney, Ron Sweeney released a statement exclusively to Billboard on the rapper’s settlement agreement.
“Per our settlement agreement, the matter has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. In terms of the particulars, we’re prohibited legally from saying anything further. I can say that my client is happy,” Sweeney said. “He is his own man, a man that owns his assets, his music and himself. At some point, Wayne will let his fans know what’s going to happen next.”
