Unfortunately, it kind of felt like this was coming.
Since earlier this year, Tunechi has been dropping singles from the Tha Carter V, including "Believe Me," "Grindin" and "Krazy." He's also been active with guest spots recently, as he just hopped on T.I.'s "About the Money" remix last week, which followed up his appearance on Yo Gotti's "Errrbody" remix earlier this month.
Weezy first announced the release date for the album in August, but since then, there haven't been many new updates -- though Kendrick Lamar did hint that he could be on the album. That same month, he headed out on the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour.
In retrospect, MTV News' chat with the YM boss over the summer may have been a precursor for the release date confusion.
“I’m so not good with that,” he said when asked about the project's release date. “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.”
“It might drop before then, in July. [Or] August 25 or something like that?”
Regardless of the delay, though, he told us back in June that the highly-anticipated album is complete.
“I’m finished," he said. "I’m done."
Ready when you are.
