Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V" Not Dropping May 5

Lil Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant says "Tha Carter V" will not be released on the date Drake mentioned, advises fans to "pay attention this week."

Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant recently shed some light on Tha Carter V, an album said to be the last solo LP from the New Orleans rapper. Contrary to the information Young Money artist Drake revealed at a show last month, Bryant says Tha Carter V will not be released on May 5 and merely offered a “you’ll see” in regards to the project’s possible release date.

“You know I push dates back and shit. So, I’m not gonna release that date. I’m not gonna release that date til I really, really, really know what it really, really, really is. Pay attention this week,” Bryant said while speaking with NeverNotDopeTV.

While performing at the House Of Blues in New Orleans in mid-February, Drake informed those in attendance that Tha Carter V would be released on May 5.

“You wanna hear Lil Wayne at his best,” Drake said in a video posted by motahiphop.com. “If you wanna hear Young Money at they best, I mean it’s Carter V May 5. Just know we about this shit for real.”

Lil Wayne has yet to announce a date for the album, but has commented on the kind of content fans can expect on the final installment in Tha Carter series. During an interview with MTV earlier this month, Wayne stated that he would be “more careful” with Tha Carter V content-wise.

"I'm more careful about what I'm doing and trying to be more careful about what I'm saying and things like that,” he said while speaking with MTV. "There were times where I didn’t care. It’s not that I didn’t care. It’s just that I knew that I had people above me or around me that was gonna make sure whatever I said or shouldn't have said or whatever I did or shouldn't have did. Well, now, I'm those people, and I'm telling me what I should do and what I shouldn't say and it’s awesome. It’s coming together dope. I think the Wayne fans are gonna like it.”

    guys, Tha Carter IV was sick as shit, it was the best album in hip hop history in my opinion. the punchlines were just crazy, songs like how to love, intro, 6 foot 7 foot, president carter, how to hate, she will, nightmares of the bottom, abortion, mirror, I like the view, blunt blowing. etc, the album was full of hits niggas no hate the alb um was solid, I don't think C5 will be doper

    You do realize how stupid that sounds considering Rise of the empire was always schedule to be release in early march. So that makes no sense why Drake would say May 5. He was clearly talking about the Carter 5." Drake never said that was set in stone though. I understand you're still mad that game left g unit but get over it.

    Cortez is Wayne's realest friend, meaning the only one that doesn't kiss his ass and will tell him when he's wrong.

  • Come On

    If he really retires that remains to be seen I can't see him doing nothing he'll be doing features for sure to try and keep relevant. Retiring is a gimmick to get more sales on your album just to take a couple years off and comeback.

      Compilation albums never sell well in hip hip Maybe not now but remember the Chronic, Above the Rim, 2001, eight mile sdtrk, state property, rush hour sdtrk, 4 out of 5 funkmaster flex albums, and DJ Clue album? That's what Young Money was trying to do.

      Unless your new too Hip Hop, Compilation albums never sell well in hip hip no matter how big of a star you are. There have been some that have gotten numbers but it was years ago and never repeated since. So comparing a compilation group albums to a solo is just stupid. It's not the same thing.And I'm not even a lil' Wayne fan really but its common Knowledge dude. Your trying to diss but your but your trying too hard and not making sense with what your doing.

    • Come On

      It won't flop guaranteed even if they have to cheat it won't flop it'll go gold minimum worst case scenario. He's falling off hence the retirement talk, However he hasn't completely fallen off.

      The VERY FIRST LINE OF THE ARTICLE says that Bryant is Lil Wayne's manager. It amazes me that people as retarded as you can even remember to breathe

    Drake was clearly talking about C5. He was talking about rise of an empire, which some consider tha carter 5.

  • Carter 2 and Dedication 2 were the peak

    Carter 1 had great lyrics few wack beats but was a solid album Carter 2 is a classic cant lie I love that album it dope beginning to end.Carter 3 is where it started going wrong too many pop tracks n his lyrics started getting lazy .Carter 4 lyrics were not good had a few banging beats but he been wack for a minute when this dropped. Carter 5 not expecting much these days wayne got so much money n on so many drugs he don't give a fuck what he says cause he gets paid to just make shit up and he seems to be the only one who finds his jokes funny

    I quit working at shoprite to work online and with a little effort I easily bring in around $45 to 85 per/h. Without a doubt, this is the easiest and most financially rewarding job I've ever had. I actually started 6 months ago and this has totally changed my life............http://x.co/4ALCl

    Whose ghost writing this album?

    Wayne needs another hit, so no way he drops this album that fast. He'll wait till fall and release it when it stands a chance of selling.

    • Anonymous

    they gonna drop it out of no where and surprise everyone just watch

    • You're the one who needs a reality check

      because you just gargled Wayne's nuts with that comment. You have no idea about what's going on behind the scenes with Lil' Wayne, and no one believes your Hubble telescope far away views on their careers. Weirdo.

    • Reality Check

      Only Jay Z and Beyonce need gimmicks at this point. Since 1999 Jay Z has dropped about 100 songs and Lil Wayne has dropped about 700. Jay playing it safe and for the money, while Wayne is having fun and living life. Jay has to plan his life and image. Wayne only has to wake up and be himself.

  • kdrg

    as i expected. i think Young Thug's Carter VI will drop sooner

  • AR

    He's gotta do more publicity stunts and marketing to sell this garbage product to the simple minded teeny boppers out there who are gonna eat this shit up like candy. I sense a series of seizures and outbursts against basketball teams upon us from Weezy anytime soon.

  • F. A. Hater

    I enjoy the Carter series the most, because he actually tries and succeeds at making high quality music. The Carter 4's intro was amazing.

      Too bad the entire album sucks.

    • Justin Hunte

      "Abortion" is one of the best songs he's ever made. "Living in the glass / And everybody's looking but how can you get the picture / If you don't know who took it? / This current affairs / But who the hell cares? / Everybody's fighting over position / Musical chairs / On the road to redemption / You're gonna use a few spares / I'm just fuckin' ready so I come prepared" Ish is motivational as a muttaskutta.
