Been wondering when Tha Carter V is finally coming out? Worry no more, Weezy’s got your back.
The date was revealed in a tweet earlier today, which also featured the album’s cover art:
This particular release date has been bandied about for awhile – Floyd Mayweather’s Instagram account posted a red V with a goat emoji and the number 21, leading quite a few people to speculate that was when Tha Carter V would be released.
C5 has had a long road to release, most notably due to the feud (and subsequent legal battles) between Weezy and Birdman. Originally slated for a 2015 release, the album got put on hiatus when Weezy sued Cash Money for $51 million in order to get out of his contract. However, he settled that case in June of this year, and patched up things with Birdman at Lil Weezyana Fest in New Orleans, so things are looking up for the latest Carter opus. (At least it’s not in the hands of Martin Shkreli anymore.)
