Lil Wayne Aiming For A 2013 Release Date For "Tha Carter V"

Lil Wayne planning on dropping "Tha Carter V" in 2013, says he would work with singer Gloria Estefan.

During his appearance at the 2012 X Games, Lil Wayne linked up with ESPN for a live online chat where he answered 40 different questions from fans. While most of the questions were skating and X Games related Lil Wayne was hit with a handful of questions about his musical endeavors, Tha Carter V in particular.

Oddly enough, Lil Wayne’s live online chat is the closest fans have gotten to hearing a release date for the album.

“[Tha] Carter V will come most likely next year,” said Lil Wayne after being asked about the album’s release date by a fan.

According to, the rapper also expressed his interest in working with fellow rapper Eminem again and even named Gloria Estefan as the one Spanish artist he’d like to collaborate with.  

Lil Wayne’s most recent album, Tha Carter IV, was released on August 29, 2011.

    Tha Carter III was a CLASSIC. I doubt Lil Wayne can return to that level of artistic brilliance. Everything he has done post-C3 has been mediocre.

  • Lennox Ave's Don

    Lil Wayne been going platinum since 1999 and haters still want to talk trash.

  • NY

    Looks like the hope of him retiring isn't going to happen but for the sake of hip hop please do. Anyone can make a song with using the word "pussy" like 100 times in it so why give him credit for a song that is uncreative and degrades women? What happened to conscious part of hip hop that would at least say it in a nice way like Bonita Applebum which is just another way for saying fat ass but it's creative and at least tries to hide the meaning.

  • Ghoulish

    I salute Lil Wayne for not having to use, the names of other artists to get attention. Other artists get no comments, if they don't use Wayne's

    Tha Carter: Dope Album Tha Carter II: Classic! Tha Carter III: MEGA CLASSIC! Rebirth: Game-changing CLASSIC! I Am Not A Human Being: Great Album Tha Carter IV: ULTRA CLASSIC! I Am Not A Human Being II: Classic in the making... Tha Carter V: Better than Tupac's & Biggie's career combined YMCMB ALL DAY ERRDAY!

      Ok now a realistic view on these albums Tha Block Is Hot: Lil Wayne's best song to date the title song "Tha Block Is Hot." Other than the title song it sounds just another Hot Boys album. Shows some promise of a future but leads to disappointment later on. 500 Degreez: One or two good songs other than that nothing really here except filler. Lights Out: Shows little improvement and only production is good. Tha Carter: Average album at the time, production stands out more than anything with Mannie Fresh on the boards. Tha Carter 2: Above average rapping skills, showed more creative lines but subject matter hurt, no general direction of the album. Production is about to par with Tha Carter. Tha Carter 3: I would say his most creative album to date but creativity doesn't translate into good songs. Lyrics take a backseat to Wayne's ego & vision for the album. It's clear this album was rushed after the leak of the original album & felt he had to put it out immediately to maintain his spotlight. Rebirth: His album that's mixed with guitars, also his official jump into pop music completely, it sounds nothing like rock like he intended and his voice is autotuned too much. Lyrics take a bigger hit on this than Tha Carter 3. Absolute failure of an album. I Am Not a Human Being: His star is fading fast so he feels like he just has to keep pumping out music to maintain fame. Lyrics are at the worst level for anyone. The only people who listen to this wear tight jeans & think Wayne's god. (Good Joke) Tha Carter 4: Production & Lyrics are horrible, I really don't know how this sold but ignorant listeners bought this.

      In your wet dreams. You could argue Carter 3 and everything before was a classic, but everything after that definitely isn't.

  • Anonymous

    so fucking lame, why do all your albums have to be called carter?

  • anonymous

    hahahah how many carters this lil bitch gona drop

  • N.O. Joe

    I hope that he puts more artists from Louisiana on this one. Carter 4 was tight, but I just wanted to hear at least one artist from Louisiana on there.

  • Ghetto Qu'ran = Best Song Ever

    C'mon y'all how can someone wait for this trash to drop an album only nigga worse than Wayne is Pimp C.

  • youngsta

    by this time, he'll be an old ass nigga. but he's released so much classic material that he'll go down as a legend in my book. carter 3 is one of the best albums i've ever heard.

  • oldshit?

    are you going be high on weed again talking about topics in creative way like you did on carter 3 or you just going give us that same old bullshit that any body thats black and been rapping for a few weeks can make. you got all these ears listening to you and you dont talk about mother fucking thing a whole generation is listening to you. you could tell to stay in school go the right way why you dont say mother fuck thing.

  • fuck young money

    this faggot cant even come up with album titles. he takes a title from one of his previous wack fucking albums and slaps a number on it. this faggot is not hip-hop.

    Tha Carter V is goin sell a million in a day. Wayne is the best rapper ever.

  • Anonymous

    he also said tha carter 4 was coming in 2009, and then in 2010 n then in spring of 2011, but it was released in the fall of 2011, and was a god awful album when comparing it to tha carter's 1-3. YMCMB may sell the most, but their music has gotten so god awful, lil waynes songs are all retarded with no real meaning or point, it's jus a bunch of metaphors thrown together about him talking about how hard he is, and how fucked up he's getting, when this nigga ain't doing anything hard anymore and doesn't even smoke or drink cause of PO, the nigga literally banned all alcoholic beverages backstage on his last tour, man you are so cool lil wayne!

    Oh, god. Not another terrible album from Wayne. He should've stopped with Tha Carter 3. Wayne should just retire already because he doesn't have it anymore. All he has are some crappy pop songs.

Thirstin' is the new Mackin'. Trickin' is the new Pimpin'. Money is God. God is a Goat. Sheep are Men. Kids are Killers. Obama is Bush. Sluts are Queens. Coons are Kings. The Kings are all corpses. ...Life is the new Death.

    Time for every other rapper to cancel their release dates in 2013, cuz this winning rap album of the year hands down. He's hungry now. He'll ruin the game after barely trying on Tha Carter IV.

    • Anonymous

      Lil Wayne got outsold in Rebirth's fist week by a Lady Antebellum album and it wasnt even Lady Antebellum's FIRST WEEK! I Am Not A Human Being debuted at No.2 below Kenny Chesny while Recovery was still at No. 5 in the charts despite being in the charts for 5 months! And we know about Tha Carter IV (cough Birdman!)
