Lil Wayne Finally Gives An Update On 'Tha Carter V'

Drop it, please.

At this point, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V has been delayed for -- I forget? -- about a million years. Something like that. Maybe 100,000 years.

Whatever the exact number is, a couple things are clear: Wayne hasn't slowed down working -- Sorry 4 the Wait 2 and the Free Weezy Album dropped earlier this year; and fans have been patiently, but eagerly awaiting the album's release.

Now we finally have another update on the project. Kind of.

"I work every single day," Tunechi told ESPN's Cari Champion on her podcast, "Be Honest." "I'm in the studio every single day. I'm not working on any certain thing, I just be working. So for me to say this or that, I'd be lying. I do have Tha Carter V finished, though. What I am working on right now is a way, a deal, and a comfortable deal to put Tha Carter V out."

OK. That's not the most revelatory update, but we do know for sure both that the album is finished, and that he's trying to find a deal where he can put it out.

The tension between Weezy and his label, Cash Money, has been public for almost a year now, since he tweeted in December 2014 that he wanted "nothing to do" with Birdman and the record company he built.

The next month, he filed a lawsuit against the mogul and his label for $51 million, alleging he hadn't been paid for much of his recent work.

Hopefully this all gets sorted out and we get Tha Carter V soon.
