The longtime Weezy collaborator/producer still doesn’t know exactly when the highly anticipated album will drop, but he does know what we can all expect from it.
"We’re still waiting to see what happens with that album,” he told Montreality in an interview that dropped Wednesday (Apr. 29). "We kind of went back to that original Cash Money feel, what you grew up on, the Mannie Fresh sound that you knew Wayne and Mannie did. Chemistry. It’s more of the original. That first Carter. That feel."
Though Wayne and Fresh have already logged in work for the upcoming LP, Tha Carter V's fate remains in limbo as Lil Wayne and Cash Money Records continue their ongoing dispute about finances.
Their disagreement intensified with Birdman’s recent endorsement of and appearance on Young Thug’s Barter 6, a project initially expected to be titled Carter 6.
Although Thugger said the project title's a tribute to his "idol," it seems Weezy wasn't pleased with the idea. Thug eventually changed the original title after he says he was threatened with a lawsuit.
And though it seems Tha Carter V is still a long ways from being dropped, at least we now know a little bit more about what we can expect from the project when it’s finally unveiled.
