Lil Wayne's "Carter IV" Pushed Back Until Late August

UPDATE: Once again, Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter IV" is delayed until late summer.

Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV is no longer dropping May 16. reports that the album will be hitting stores sometime in June, though no further details have been provided.

Wayne previously reported that the album has been completed. The project has been in the works since 2008, and has been apparently recorded from scratch at least once.

Several members from the Young Money camp have provided various release dates for the project, including Mack Maine, who stated in August that it would be released in the fall.

[April 17]

UPDATE: According to UHTN, Lil Wayne's Tha Carter IV has been pushed back again. The LP, which recently spawned the single "How to Love," will now release on August 29th.

In reality hes makin even more money everytime yal talk shit about him. Dumb fucks! Atleast come up with some valid reasons, not just your trash of an opinion. Wayne said it best, "Get off my dick, i aint fuckin wit ya."

    • hellrazor

      yo jason, fuck off and keep daydreaming of a "2 girls 1 cup" remake with wayne and you.

    • jason

      Who cares? Apparently, LOTS of people care. Just check the number of comments under all of his songs and news articles. Apparently YOU care since you just commented here. Dumbass.

  • hip hop

    go download this mixtape support real hip hop

  • Wondering

    I wonder if Drake coimg out today had anything to do with this push back, it will be intresting to see how it all plays out moving forward, Kinda hard to be gangster when one of your crew has admitted he is Gay.

  • Joe

    Would someone please tell me what's so great about Little Wayne? He's a really mediocre rapper, his whole use of metaphors isn't clever, and he has an annoying voice. Why is he so damn popular?

    • RainMan

      Jason im going to say this as nicely as possible..please shut the fuck up..i fuck with wayne a little bit but one of the greatest MC's to got the real legends like pac, biggie, the old J, Rakim, Nas, KRS-one and the old shady..thats just to name a few..sorry but wayne just isnt in that league

    • jason

      Lil Wayne is an all-time legend and one of the greatest MCs to ever breathe into a microphone. That's a FACT.

    • my mommy sucked my daddy's dick

      nigga you live in a country where a fucking snooki gets popular and makes more money than you will earn in your entire life. wayne shouldnt be a surprise

  • carnage loc

    Maybe bkeuse we can't tell the difference bketween 9mm and John the new song is trash but that's what works cuz the dj's and radio's will play it til u think u like it cuz this ain't the 90's were real hip hop came and went and miss her 2 holla

  • Anonymous

    I can see a November release date for this. They will push it, probably waiting on Drake or Nicki's album.

  • jason

    "If Tupac were still alive...." Lil Wayne got into the rap game when Pac was still alive. Dumbasses

    • dockevoc

      wayne better than pac? Huh? Pac been dead for 15 years and STILL got more hot shit than this dude...I still ain't heard a full wayne cd whole way through without seeing feathers fly out of the speakers

    • jason

      Lil Wayne >>> Tupac. Bottom line

    • Jason is the dumbass

      Gtfoh lil Wayne was like 13 when PAC died idiot

    • dmize-one

      nobody outside of LA heard of wayne untill 97 at the earliest, and most likely 99 when guerilla warfare dropped (dope album btw)...

  • King Vic

    Damn....can we accept one bit of hip hop news without a single "if tupac were still here" comment. lol not the biggest lil wayne fan (enjoyed his earlier music but w.e guess thats the past) but i do feel that august is a lil too far considering we are on his 3rd single now. still hoping for a sick summer/rest of the year with hot albums cant wait for bad meets evil! lol

  • Ayre

    Don't worry retards, you'll be listening to overrated bullshit in no time! August will be here soon...

  • If Gs were alive

    IF PAC Biggie Big-L or Eazy-E were alive them pop ass niggas would be working in Mcdonalds or BK. Ross will still be a CO. Wayne will be a wackass male kissing rapper. Eminem a white stupi rapping puppet. T.I a midget clown from ATL. %0 cent would died after his first album. Dr Dre an Snoop will get they ass whooped by Eazy-E every day on the Radio. Yeezy and Gay-Z will be consider as some Rock-Pop fags.

    • Anonymous

      and eazy was friend of Will.iam and bone thugs.So there would be nothing happening to eminem or dre because they stopped their beef before his dead.And ice cube writed some of eazy'z lyrics

    • Anonymous

      I think thats dumb when people are saying what they would do if they would be alive. I never couldnt believe snoop to turn pop artist.But he did.Same could happen to them. They died early and they didnt have time to make wack music. G.O.A.T list: nas,eminem,biggie,ice cube,royce da 59,tupac,the game etc

    • dmize-one

      your a joke... pac, big, and eazy were gettin bumbped ALOT wayyyy before they died... big L was just startin to blow when he got murked..

    • HAHAHA

      I think people who listen to Pac, Biggie or Eazy-E just because they are died. Jay-Z made a song with Biggie so I doubt Jay-Z would fell off. What about Eazy-E who got fucked by another man and had to have a Jew run his label? 2pac was a paranoid motherfucker who would praise Justin Bieber if he were alive. No one give a fuck about Big L until he died. Good rapper though. But as Immortal Technique said: the only that's pathetic and gay is when niggaz speculate what the fuck Pac would say. You don't know shit about a dead man's perspective. The only words Immortal Technique ever said anything relevant other than his lame pro-communist beliefs.

Weezy shit supposed to have been dropped....then they got wind that Watch The Throne was going to drop in March and pushed it back to May. Now they pushing it back to August?? What he doesn't know is that whenever he does drop it....the new Jay-Z is going to he dead either way it goes...and if the new Jay-Z don't kill his sales....J.Cole will. I know he isn't going to drop his album back to back with Drake? C'mon hurting everybody else on the label...what quarter will they be heard in the year if you keep pushin it back?

      compare wayne's body of work to anybody else, and he shits on em..shits on pac..shits on big..shits on jayz..shits on kanye..shits on all the underground rappers..shits on all the mainstream rappers (Cept eminem)..if the nigger comes out with a wack song, o well, his discography consists of thousands of thousands of songs compare that to anyone and wayne wins..YOU NIGGERS

    • Anonymous

      wayne's far from the best. at one point in time, sometime around 2008, his shit was fire. his last 3 cds have been flops, regardless of what sales say. record sales just prove the general public is content riding his dick and listening to mediocre rhymes. i'll give him this though, put wayne on anyone's song with a verse and he's more than likely gonna go hard

    • MYDICK

      obviously it's gonna suck, cus wayne has nothing to rap about because he's never rlly lived a life of his own, he's been on the road with cash money since he was like 13. He's been getting sexually harassed and brainwashed by Birdman for all those years, he has Wayne thinking that it's normal for men to kiss each other on the lips, I rlly don't think Wayne is gay, but Birdman made him his bitch literally. All he makes are club bangers, why would anyone care about that unless they were female and wanted to grind on some dick, or a dude that wants to get his dick grinded on? If there rlly are people out there who appreciate Wayne's music for it's artistic contribution to the music world, then they are fucking brain-dead.

    • Samuel Bowden

      ok so u lost the arguement and turned wayne gay because in your mind that the only thing you want, comments about wayne being shit mean nothing, coz they all come from people who have no experience in music, when u have as much succes as lil wayne, then you can talk shit

    • hellrazor

      hater? is there ANY other word you wayne fans can use? 6'7 talks about nothing. ok, nothing. same goes for the fuckin video. no concept or nothing. that voice of his reinforces the notion that he was takin it up the ass in prison so save yourself the fuckin keystrokes. fuckin faggot.

    • Vincent Byronic Hero Salamatino

      Because you're a hater rating an album you haven't even heard besides the 6'7 single which features inventive wordplay in an era everybody complains rap is watered down. C'mon Son!

  • HO11YWOOD303

    Once again, the only people commenting on news about Wayne are haters. Constantly whining about his success and comparing him to every other rapper out there. Look, if you dont like the dudes music, dont listen to it, comment on it, or have anything to say. We get it, you hate the fact that he's talented, filthy rich, has sold millions of records and had the highest grossing hip hop tour ever.

  • George Granderson

    Good..this needs to be pushed back to next year!..Wayne is getting played out and his style is getting stale..he needs to focus more energy on Young Money members other than Drake and Nicki..Tyga is tight..Cory Gunz tight...Gudda Gudda tight..Millz aight..put some money and momentum behind them

    • Vincent Byronic Hero Salamatino

      That would be a waste of money. Tyga, Gudda Gudda, and Corey Gunz can't handle making a whole album of actual songs. Tyga's debut was pretty tight but none of the mixtapes he's released since then have been hot and he get's compared to Wiz too much right now. I don't know if Jae Millz have another good album left in him or not but if he did he'd be releasing a mixtape or something.



    • Vincent Byronic Hero Salamatino

      I will agree with that I thought after Rebirth we would have no more Carter's. He's more then creative enough to come up with a hot album title. Shit with all the hate he get's he might as well steal Lil B's album title and rename the Carter IV to I'm Gay.

  • Ya Boy D

    I knew that was gonna happen. When they said it was coming out in May, I said they're gonna push it back till june.

  • Doubl Negative

    Hopefully this release doesn't materialize. People like Wayne contaminate this scene with their putrid filth. I can't think of a single positive attribute associated with this guy. Subterranean emcees like eLZhi, Homeboy Sandman, Invincible and Reks are not just superior craftsmen in terms of delivery, flow and content, their erudite lyrics give listeners intellectual stimulation, and it's truly an edifying experience listening to their music. Wayne, 50, Soulja Boy et al, only justify the bigotry leveled at our people by Fox News and Eminem fans.

    • Matt Tompkins

      what vincent said.

    • Vincent Byronic Hero Salamatino

      Dude there's a difference between poetry and music for a reason. People want to be entertained not listen to a political science course over beat labeled hip hop. Them MC's are all good in their lane and it's true the topics they are talking about people should be aware of but not necessarily thru music. You still have to make peoples head nod. Q-Tip, Common, Black Thought are all legends for giving lyrical insight but became famous for stimulating not just your mind but your whole body. And besides Wayne does give you brain candy. 6'7" is full of amazing wordplay and hidden metaphors. Tie My Hands was the best song to ever memorialize Katrina. And Eminem and bigotry to not go in the same sentence have you ever heard Mosh by him?

    • Jesus

      congrats faggot, you looked up big words in the dictionary. and proved a point. congrats. now talk nigga slang and go "nigguh" at the end of every sentence. ffs -.- Wayne sucks i agree. but let him do his thing. i simply listen to his songsKanye produces or someone i like raps on.
