As if the Red October’s and Beyonce’s album wasn’t enough, it appears as if Lil Wayne will also be delivering his album without warning this year. Mel Smith, Senior Vice President of Promotions for Cash Money revealed that there is no release date for Tha Carter V and Wayne intends to deliver it when he’s ready to.
We’re very close to dropping the album. It’s going to be a huge surprise to everyone, it’s an incredible album … I can’t release the date because he wants to surprise people, he wants his true fan base to get excited but he’s worked extremely hard on it and you won’t be disappointed
“He’s one of the artists like Prince who just continues to record,” he said. “He does it for the love of the art, for the record, he continues to work hard to top himself, like when he does the ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ records that he’s, which are a little more rock and roll tangent, a little more pop tangent while “Tha Carter V” is a little more Lil Wayne getting it to you straight from New Orleans. That’s the thing about Wayne, when we put out the last “Carter,” we put it out and sold almost 1,000,000 records in one week. The day we put it out, he was still in the studio recording, verybody who’s heard it feels the same way, the general excitement of something big coming,” he said. “You’re just generally excited for when the world hears it.”
