Lil Wayne Says Tha Carter IV Is Done & Announces Release Date!

Thu, Mar 17, 2011 by

Some great news Young Moneyians/Wayniacs! Lil Wayne tells us in the video above that he is finished with Tha Carter IV and the official release date will be May 16th (not May 24th).

“Tha Carter IV is done,” Wayne told MTV News. “All they need to do is tell Tez (manager Cortez Bryant) to stop sitting on it. Tez, stop sitting on Tha Carter IV and put the album out.”

Bryant, Weezy’s longtime manager, was in attendance and provided the specific release date. “May 16, believe that,” Wayne said. “It can come out tomorrow ’cause I’m so finished … Tha Carter IV will be dropping May 16. If you’re not doing anything, do me,” he added. – MTV

After the jump, you can watch a video of Weezy thanking us the fans for his new tour and rating the opening show last night a 10 out of 10:

  • daknite

    i want that second single wayne please man come on.

  • -_-

    dude I hope that may 16 shit is official, and it probably is because this the first time wayne just put a date out there for the shit. But still, I wouldn’t be surprised if it got pushed back, he pretty bold releasing this shit without a second single, but idk, there’s enough time between now and may put another song out there, probably that tpain that we heard about. Yall notice how this nigga is re-doing everything he did for c3 prior to releasing it?! EVERYTHING. 1st single was made with the same dudes, song with tpain is probably going to be another single, and that was the same team from got money. This nigga know what he doing lol He ain’t necessarily got to make a lollipop song (and most of us would prefer that he didn’t), but honestly, that was probably the song that got him across the mil line in 1 week.

  • Tunechi’s Bakk

    Okay, don’t get me wrong… Im totally all for Tha Carter IV coming out as soon as possible but why doesnt he just wait to release it on June 14 or whatever (IDK i cant remember exact date) that will be the 3 year aniversery of Tha Carter III. It makes more sense in my opinion.
