It took the Super Bowl to even get the ever-absent Lil Wayne to show up for a performance in Minnesota, so imagine how much it must have taken to get word that, this month, we’ll finally be seeing Tha Carter V.
According to social media posts from Lil Wayne and boxer Floyd Mayweather, Tha Carter V will officially be dropping September 21. The new cover art is a vast improvement over the original which had been used since the album was first set for release five years ago.
Will the album actually come out and – if so – will it continue the year’s streak of big name disappointments, or will it be an album of the year contender?
