- Click to Subscribe to ClevverMusic! Lil Wayne fans...sit tight. I've got your update on the release of Tha Carter Four right now! Hi guys, I'm Bridget Daly for ClevverMusic in Hollywood. Lil Wayne made his fans very happy today with the announcement that his upcoming album has a release date! Yes, Tha Carter Four is officially coming out....drum roll please! May 16th! That's two months away! Weezy sat down with MTV News right before the kick-off performance of his I Am Still Music tour in Rhode Island last night and said that the album is completely finished. He then said he wished it would come out tomorrow, but his manager Cortez Bryant likes to quote "sit on stuff." He added, Tha Carter Four 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. Originally, there were reports the album would come out on the same day Weezy was granted his freedom, but obviously that never happened. Hey, we'll give him a pass since he was behind bars and everything. In related news, fellow Young Money artist Nicki Minaj told MTV News that she completed a verse for the album. She said, "I think Carter IV is gonna just be exceptional, of course. I think Wayne is definitely on his grind crazy right now." And I'm not even gonna pretend I know what that means! But it sounds good. So are you psyched to finally have Tha Carter Four in hand in about two months?
