Video: Lil Wayne Says Tha Carter IV Is Definitely Done x More

Above, Lil Wayne tells MTV that his Tha Carter IV album is “totally done” and will be released on August 29th (not August 22nd). Tunechi also confirms that his Sorry For The Wait mixtape will be dropping on July 12th or the 13th. He then goes onto to discuss his “How To Love” single:

“That song is just sweeping the world. It’s touching every woman, that’s what it was for,” Wayne said. “It was like Tupac had ‘Keep Ya Head Up’ and it was a message to women and little girls across the world just to keep your head up even though things are hard. That’s what my song was.”

‘Pac’s 1993 song became one of his biggest hits. On it, Shakur rapped about the plight of single mothers and battered women. For “How to Love,” Weezy also lends a sympathetic ear. “A lot of women don’t know how to love because there’s deep reasons for them not knowing how to love,” he explained. “And what I mean by deep reasons is deep and dark reasons. A lot of people don’t open up that can and I figured that I can open up that can of worms and see what happens.”
