Is the wait over yet?
It seems very possible that Lil Wayne's long-awaited fifth installment to Tha Carter series will arrive before the end of the year. Weezy's legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money finally came to an end in early June. Fans are now eagerly waiting to hear the highly anticipated Tha Carter V which has gone to hell and back for its release. While a release date hasn't been set yet, it seems like Weezy SZN is approaching very soon.
The official Young Money Twitter account has tweeted out what seems to be the cover art for Tha Carter V. The photo features Wayne's palm with his tattoo reading "The World" on it. It's unsure if this is the official cover art for the project but either way, we're excited for the project to arrive.
Following Wayne's settlement with Cash Money and Birdman, many speculated that he began shooting the cover art for the album. Photographer Nabil Elderkin posted a picture of Lil Wayne in front of a Blue backdrop with the caption, alluding that they're shooting Tha Carter V cover. “Back at it a couple Carter’s later," he wrote. It wasn't confirmed that it was for the album but it seemed like a strong possibility.
A few days after he was seen shooting a new music video. It wasn't clear what the music video was for but we could only hope it was for Tha Carter V.
