Surprise!: Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V Gets A Release Date

Did Drake just spill the beans?

Well, that was fast. A day after news of a looming, surprise Carter V album made the Internet rounds, it seems eager fans can now pin the date on their calendars.

Lil Wayne will drop the much-talked about fifth installment of his Tha Carter series on May 5, 2014, according to Drake. While it’s unclear whether the OVO rapper accidentally let the cat out of the bag or was given the all-clear by the Young Money captain, as “official” hip-hop release dates go, the spring date appears to be legit.

Drizzy made the announcement on Friday during a set at New Orleans’ House of Blues as part of kickoff festivities for the NBA All-Star weekend. And Weezy was on hand, too, hitting the stage for a performance of his own. Still, the album scoop seems to directly contradict what a Cash Money exec had teased in an interview with Buffalo, New York, college paper The Griffin.
