Lil Wayne has finally sort of, kind of announced a new release date for his long-anticipated album Tha Carter V. According to a new interview, the new LP from the Young Money boss is due out sometime this fall.

MTV caught up with Weezy for a short interview and asked him when Tha Carter V was due in stores.

"I'm so not good with that... August, September," Lil Wayne mused after being asked about a release date. He referred to someone off camera, who seemed to announce the album will be released Aug. 25, but Wayne was also open to the idea of a late July or even early September release, surrounding his upcoming co-headlining tour with his fellow YMCMB rapper Drake. So, even if Wayne doesn't know exactly what's going on, the album is due soon.

Two things Wayne could seem to confirm: he has finished work on Tha Carter V and the album will be immediately preceded two months later with DOA (Da Other Album).

"If Tha Carter was to drop in August, [DOA] will be October," he confirmed.

Though an exact, official release date for Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V has yet to be officially pinned down, rap fans have heard bits of new music from Wayne's Internet video series "Weezy Wednesdays."

Wayne has dropped numerous tracks and snippets from Tha Carter V, including "D'Usse," "Tina Turn Up Needs A Tune Up" and "Krazy."
