Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V (5) album delays again
On the day when all hip-hop fans expected to hear Tha Carter V by Lil Wayne, it was no where to be found.
A source close to Weezy’s camp tells TMZ … the hype surrounding September 21 as the release date for ‘Carter V’ was all generated by pure speculation that somehow morphed into conspiracies. Fact is … all Young Money did was tease the cover and NEVER once mentioned an album release date.
The hype started after Floyd Mayweather posted the album cover on Instagram earlier this month and captioned it “[Goat emoji] #21.” That led everyone to believe the album was dropping at midnight on September 21. But when midnight came and went … fans were left scratching their heads, especially after Floyd deleted the post. James Harden followed suit with “#13” and also deleted it.
Making matters even more confusing — Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant on Friday posted the same album cover on IG but captioned it “#7” and “#8,” respectively. In retrospect, they were just posting the cover along with their jersey numbers. Wayne’s daughter, Reginae, also posted the album cover on IG but her caption simply had “#C5.”Also checkout: Drake breaks Billboard record for Most Weeks at No 1 in a Year
Point is … Wayne said zilch about Sept. 21. The wait continues …
