Lil Wayne‘s highly anticipated forthcoming album, Tha Carter IV, finally has an official release date: May 16. Weezy F. Baby revealed the date Wednesday, during opening night of his I Am Music II Tour in Rhode Island.
“Tha Carter IV is done,” Wayne told MTV News: “All they need to do is tell Tez (manager Cortez Bryant) to stop sitting on it. Tez, stop sitting on Tha Carter IV and put the album out.”
Bryant confirmed the release date last night while backstage at Lil Wayne’s “I Am Music II” tour kickoff in Providence, Rhode Island.
Lil Wayne added:
“May 16, believe that. It can come out tomorrow cause I’m so finished … Tha Carter IV will be dropping May 16. If you’re not doing anything, do me.
The album will be his first official release since he was let out of Rikers Island prison facility in November after serving eight months of a one-year sentence.
