Did Lil Wayne Just Announce Tha Carter V Release Date? We’re Confused

Two months after Tha Carter V, Wayne will follow with DOA.

Lil Wayne has been teasing us with great singles from Tha Carter V, including “Believe Me” featuring Drake and most recently, “Krazy.” So when MTV News caught up with Tunechi on the “Krazy” video set in Los Angeles early Tuesday morning (July 1), we had to ask: When is the album finally dropping?

There was some confusion, but a couple of dates were thrown around.

“I’m so not good with that,” Wayne replied. “I think it drops either in September and then we have…ah I can’t tell you the sneak thing. Anyway, yeah, I think it drops in September or August.”

But what about the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour that kicks off in mid-August? Wouldn’t the album be out before then?

“It might drop before then, in July. [Or] August 25 or something like that?” At the very least, Wayne could confirm that the album is completed — “I’m finished, I’m done” — and that he’d be dropping another project called Da Other Album two months after Tha Carter V hits stores.

“If Tha Carter was to drop in August, [DOA] would be October.”
