Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter IV” Makes Complex’s “25 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2010”

Thu, Jan 21, 2010 by

Ever since Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter III was released on August 19th, 2008, everyone’s been anticipating the next chapter of Tha Carter series, Tha Carter IV. The anticipation grew more once Wayne was sentenced to a year in prison, due to a felony gun charge. The hype of the album is so big, that Complex considered it in their “25 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2010”. Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter IV made #7 on the list, which may be a disappointment to most of his fans. But despite it’s lower-than-expected ranking, it’ll be an album to remember. Here’s what Complex had to say:

During last summer Universal said this record would be released in the 4th quarter of 2009, after Rebirth, so clearly there are songs recorded. But with Rebirth’s release at a standstill due to lack of interest and the Best Rapper Alive ‘pon lock for most of 2010, we’re thinking Universal, and more importantly their shareholders, are gonna force this LP’s release by the end of the year. The big question is, will it be a frankenstein of the rap records he’s made post-Rebirth, or will he scrap everything when he gets out of jail and put together an entirely new LP reflecting his presumably changed world view?

What do you guys think about Tha Carter IV only reaching the #7 spot, and do you all think it will be released this year?

    Crystal Castles didn’t even make the cut and this dude did?!
    I doubt he’s even gonna release it this year anyway.

  • billyprince

    fuck what spot it reach on whoevers list. lollipop love cant last forever, but weezy did pick up alot more like minded devoted fans along the way whove paved the way for a whole new scene, props 2 ymcmb for striking while tha irons triple blazed, wayne got so much in the bank he cant soar to the tip-top anytime he want, no ceilings just like priceless, pop cultures dryin up and waynes tha personification of hope for greatness, thats why we lifted him up thats why he is music and i promise you do not wanna sleep on it.

  • alexfuckingflores

  • Retro_87

    No C4 this year… & correction, “Tha Carter III was released on August 19th, 2008” quote is wrong! The Album dropped June 10th, 2008… A day i’ll never 4get (copped 3 copies)

  • infinite

  • Karu

    Drizzy is #1. And who cares about Complex when it comes to Wayne?

  • Rock LIfe

    Rebirth is a fuckin good album!! He really can rap and sing on millions of different beats….I wait the 2010 version but keep Paradice, Get A Life and KnockOut wayne

  • Rock LIfe

    I think Carter IV will be released when wayne exited the prison..Everybody will wait him…I dont think that Carter 3 will be released this year, all his last albums was push back, and we have not a date for Carter 3

  • Luney tune

  • cody122555

    tha carter 3 came out june 10th 2008 not august 19th

  • lvwyne

    He will look better w/o dreads. Dreads are dirty. Why would anybody want dreads? I love Lil Wayne tho.

  • yeedee

    i hope the Carter 4 will be like No Ceilings. kinda new style, none or barely used autotune. oh yeah autotune really does suck dick. did i mention that autotune sucks. Carter 3 was awesome and i dono if it can be topped but if Weezy puts his mind to it there aint no ceilings in sight.

  • Quil

  • i think the carter 4 will drop this year. in the middle of 2010

  • martian101

    im sayin carter IV drops this summer. with rebirth dropping in feb that will give his fans some new music for a little bit then he’ll drop carter IV in the middle of summer. it will seem like he never went to prison….i hope im right ahah

  • blahhh

    carter 4 will definitley come out in 2011. i doubt he’d drop 2 albums in a year. plus he’s in jail so.. but im definitley excited for this!! can’t wait for drakes album either

    I can’t wait for c4. I’ve loved lil Wayne since 2004 and love all his albums even the undergrounds like no ceilings. Rebirth has some sweet tracks esp Drop the World wit eminem prbly the best collaboration. Keep doing what u do Wayne.
