Lil Wayne Tha Carter 5 Album Will Not Be Coming Out, Wants Off Cash Money Records

Lil Wayne has gone on Twitter to announce that his Tha Carter V album has not yet and won’t be released, because his label Cash Money Records refuse to put it out.

He also explained that he has no say in this situation, he is sorry to the fans, and that he wants to leave the record label.

You can read Weezy F Baby‘s tweets below. I guess this means we won’t be getting C5 on December 9th!

To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it.

    this is prolly why all the hot boyz left Cash money as well. and this is also prolly way wayne’s last few albums have been shitty Cash money turned him into a radio puppet and now that his album has no radio songs they won’t let him drop CV they did it with tyga as well.

    this is why most rappers are going independent these days.

  • Hi

    Monster wayne about to come out my niggas

  • Hi

    I’m waiting for a mixtape to drop tbh…. It will be about loyalty and perosnal

  • Kai Balduin

    I bet only because C5 has no Radio smash and bad promo Birdman dosent want it to drop, C3 had so many solds first week , cause of lollipop. Wayne on the other side gives a fuck ! Like he already said in the P.S.A he dont wanna cheat his fans ! I bet C5 is a classic Hip-Hop Album that is fukin Fire ! Maybe he even dont wanted that “Start A Fire” Single on C5 , but he had to cause Baby taught it was a good promo , but it turned out that it wasnt so Baby told wayne to push it back again ! IM Telling you C5 Material is fukin awsome Hip-Hop Material that you never heard before !

    Fuck CM ! Fuck Birdman ! Free C5 ! Wayne do youre thing we all behind you !

    • Waynedagoat

      Thats koo point of view.. Or orr orr.. Weezys floppin like a bitch he hasnt droped one fireeee song how u gona blame that on anyone else except weezy… Fuck c5 till wayne gets it right i mean got dam gotti??? Dusse??? Offday?? U guys happy with that as c5 promo???? Thats pathetic mayb instead of making a 100 songs he should jus concetrate on 15 good ones how bout that

  • C5=DETOX

    Mixtape/Album leak any minute now..

    • e dog

      pray

    • mortimerr2014

      You think ?

  • Miikeey

    i say bullshit

  • bobby bitch

    he gonna go on his own an tyga yo gotti lito kevin gates and maybe drake and nicki gonna join

  • Kikke

    I can not stress enough how much Kobe Bryant & Lil Wayne remind me of one another. Both considered greats in their respective fields and shit. But let’s say Weezy actually elves Cash Money I don’t think Wayne will stop rapping at all to prove that he can still do what he does perhaps even better than with Birdman as Kobe was out to do the same thing with Shaq… And also Young Thug & RHQ are G but they ain’t no Weezy. And Thugga loves Weezy so I think thug gonna be like damn nigga I only put up with your “RICH GANG” “RICH GIRL” bullshit so I can fuck with Weezy and now you pushed that bitch out the way wtf?! And I feel like Birdman never loved wayne now as wayne loved him and maybe Birdman is a straight business man and really just do it for the Guap and y’all sleep pusha is raw and if wayne brought his main crew member to good music and you got nicki, wayne, Drake, push, big sean, & Kanye on the same motherfuckin label?! Shit Bruh where the fuck cruel summer 2 at nigga?

    • Josh

      Bruh most on point comment ever.

    • C5=DETOX

      Its sad that this whole paragraph is the truth..birdman only gave so much of a fuck bout weezy when he was the most profitable..now he got 4/5 other artists he can get rich off of he don’t got time for Wayne no more

    • 504HardHead

      You could have related them better but you’re more right than you think

  • Sam

    Never thought I would see a post like this on lilwaynehq…. Such a sad day in music to see a empire just break down

  • Waynedagoat

    Lets be honest waynes si gles have been garbage all except believe me the album flopped cant blame anyone but weezy ur album suks dik if it was fire birdman wuda pumped it out to all yall fanss all u guys do is blame cortez for shit well blame weezy for getin on a track wit cheistian milian for the carter 5 thats career suicide

    • Tyler Jenkins®

      thank u. start a fire was soft af and off day was bad. gotti was awesome but still it wasnt looking good as of late

      • Ye

        Fuck the album YMCM is breaking

    • e dog

      does nobody else think off day and grindin is fire??

      • Tyler Jenkins®

        grindin wasnt album quality imo, and off day was trash.

      • C5=DETOX

        I fucks with them but compared to krazy, gotti n dusse & believe me its not as good

      • alex

        Grindin was one of my favorite. The only one I don’t really fuck with was off day. And honestly doubt that’s on the album. Whenever it comes out

      • Waynedagoat

        Its koo bro.. Mayb on a regular day.. During c5 season u have no rights to drop average songs

    • alex

      Yep. Every song on the album sucks even the ones we ain’t ain’t heard. Fuck it just don’t release the album… God damn your an idiot

      • Waynedagoat

        Bruh did u jus make that up .. Every somg suked compared to who wayne is and what he can do and the carter are suppose to be on another level u average ass hoe gtfo the website

        • alex

          Your name is waynedagoat but your clowning on him? Obviously weezy isnt spitting like c2 or da drought 3 but is Jay spitting like he was? Is Em? Is Ye? As time goes on, new people come in. That’s life. wayne still my favorite rapper even if he isn’t on his old level. I still love listening to his songs and deciphering his metaphors and similes

          • Waynedagoat

            Waynes the goat no doubt.. It hurts me to see the trash his becoming it hurts.. But i call it how it is.. If u the best rapper alive prove it.. Simple as that not happy with weezy for the forst time in my life

            • alex

              Hear you on that man. I betting this is gonna bring that beast back

    • C5=DETOX

      You dumb fucks this is more than music

      • Waynedagoat

        Bruh stfu ur outhere selling ur ass on the corner how d fuk do u know what this about.. Read his tweets its only about mysic fukboy and wayne cant drop a hot song

        • C5=DETOX

          Suck a die and die faggot
          Its about music in general but not about c5…they want wayne to make songs like start a fire but that’s not what he’s comfortable with but they won’t drop C5 unless he conforms to their ideas
          Sit down

          • Waynedagoat

            Hahaha who d fuck are u?? Hahahahahaha hahahahhahahahahahaha niggaa dial 911 nd tell em ur having a stroke or ur brains melting.. Birdman wants weezy to make more songs.

Birdman a G waynes the faggot skater singing love songs u hoe get ur shit straight

            • C5=DETOX

              They want him to make mainstream ass songs but he juat wants to make songs like gotti & dusse..the want some radio shit & thug n rhq don’t fucking rap they mumble
              He wants Wayne to make a pop song
              Birdman a vulcher & Wayne just tryna live his life & put out albums.
              Btw Waynedagoat right? Lmaoo

              • Waynedagoat

                Wayne da goat no doubt his done enough for that.. But ima call it how it is he floppin.. Bruh no one tells wayne wjat to do no one.. If they wanted him to do a pop song they wuda paid rihana or some one big not lil waynes scrub ass girlfriend.. Bam i owned u

    • LeTerance Corbitt

      Off day wasn’t gonna make the album anyway so let’s just kill that thought.

      • Waynedagoat

        Its not about being on the album.. In some ways the songs before the album matter more.. During c5 season no weak ass songs are permited or even average shit.. Waynes ahit been average as fuck for c5 season we the fans aint happy

        • LeTerance Corbitt

          I understand if your gonna release promotional singles, it could be at least a hot ass single or something

    This is fucking CRAZY!! Wayne has been the only LOYAL artist on Cash Money, signed since 1993 and Birdman fucking treats him like this??!! Wayne should be able to drop anything he wants, when he wants!!

    But wait a minute….Bare with me here: What if wayne just tweeted those posts as one big publicity stunt and it actually comes out December 9th…Hmmm….guess we’ll have to wait and see, but if this is true its Beyond Fucked up rs…

  • e dog

  • Julius Cesar Belliard

    Wow. I’ve read this over multiple times & still can’t believe it. Never would I have thought this day would come. I hope everything works out for Wayne & he can distribute his music freely.

    • Or Sign To Someone Else ? Lmfaoo.

      • Julius Cesar Belliard

        Wayne’s at a point in his career that signing with any other sub label would just be a step back at this point. He’s a legend. It’s either patch things up with Cash Money or go Independent.

  • ABC

    Hmm seems legit, unless his account is hacked or something. Other than that it could be a trick to make people aware of this and boom, the album drops out of nowhere. Of course it is a somewhat different approach in the way of promoting an album, some might say risky, but brave noneheless IF this is the case, could also be that he is being screwed over by CM and it that case, fuck them…

  • THEFIREMANB1TCH

    This is for promotion i bet, one big publicity stunt to get wayne’s name trending right before the album drops..

    • mortimerr2014

  • YoitsChico

    I know yall have seen people in interviews talk about Wayne, everyone always says he’s such a great guy, i dont understand how Cash Money could treat him like this

  • YoitsChico

    He should go independent anyway, or just do his shit through YM

    • CMB_

      he cant do it just with young money, because Young Money is an Imprint of cashmoney

      • YoitsChico

        im sure they could break off and do their own thing

    Is there gunna be a psa or is Mack gunna announce something? I need to know something about cv

  • officialboy

    Calm down Wayne.. cash money n baby should give u a legit reason why he doesn’t wanna release your album but I know it’s a great reason. And you should also give us a good reason why you wanna leave the team. You ain’t a Prisoner, you’re still a student.

Lil Wayne and Drake should make their own label and maybe this is what wayne meant when he said “Cash Money mascot, its hot under this costume”

    This is really terrible. I am in Wayne’s corner always. Whatever internal problems are happening, personally Lil Wayne is the reason cash money actually sees money. Cold Fact: Lil Wayne could put out an album on sound stream and still make 5 million in a week. We true fans are with you. We love you. Hugs and kisses always.

    I just wanna hear thr carter v is that so much to ask for. Leak the motherfucker

  • Salder

    Wow, if this is true i am verry impressed by Wayne. He’s just using as a toy for making money, Birdman or whoever else give him drugs and use him to make money on is back. They don’t want him to do what he wants and what he likes but what can make most money. Wayne should go, that’s better for him. Goin’ on a good rap label which is going to push him to make real music. Sadly, as he said, it’s ain’t that easy, Birdman probably won’t let is bank running away.

    I’m not surprise it was a matter of time there’s a reason why his album is not being dropped. Think back the 90’s baby played the entire group took there money and broke up friendships btw the artist in the hot boys group. Manny fresh made that clear a while ago that’s why he don’t fuck with baby. I don’t know how weezy even stuck around that long. He should have been bounce. Baby used him and he going do the same to Nicki and drake.

  • What!!

    I got the underground scoop from one of Baby & Slims relatives, they work in CMR office. Well it’s official that Carter V and Drakes Views from the 6 will be released, some copies were leaked and sold bootleg in Nola, and was shut down real quick. They might end up uploading online, who knows!!! Anyway, it is a publicity stunt, Baby is making hype for people to wait, want and demand so the albums will go platinum as soon as released, but since a few copies are leaked to public, don’t know if the freebies will come out before his plan is executed. I guess he is trying to go down in history as rolling the world with this stunt, he is the #1 Stunna…Ball til ya fall…226…playboy!!!
