Lil Wayne Working On ‘Tha Carter V’, According to Drake
By Jeremy D. Larson The implications of the two words “Carter V” may not seem like much. Maybe he’s thinking about Jimmy Carter’s great-great grandson. Maybe it’s just a late-night thought of Lil Wayne‘s Young Money associate Drake. The point is we don’t know, but Drake tweeting “Carter V” is likely to suggest that Lil Wayne has started working on, or is somewhere in the midst of working on the fifth installment of Tha Carter series. The series celebrates its 10th year anniversary this year, with the first chapter being released in June of 2004. It’s most lauded and successful episode is triple-platinum Tha Carter III, released in 2008. According to Complex, the album has been in the works for over a year now, but there have been no updates about its status since Lil Wayne put out the fifth installment of his concurrent series, Dedication this past summer. Wayne did tell MTV in 2012 that Tha Carter V would be his last album.
But until then, he’s keeping himself on the radar. Wayne’s set to release the Vol 2. of a Young Money Comp March 11 called Young Money: Rise of an Empire, featuring Wayne, Drake, Nicki Minaj Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Shanell, Lil Twist, Christina Milian, and new label signee Euro. And if you’re a teacher thinking about working Tha Carter series into your syllabus, make sure you get that approved by the principal first.
