If you were upset when a tentative release date for Lil Wayne's The Free Weezy Album came and went earlier this month, worry not. According to the Young Money boss himself, his new LP is due for release next month.
As for The Free Weezy Album, it's due out next month - though Wayne did not drop an exact release date yet. "I'm working on it every day, man," he said. "I guarantee it's going to be something dope. If you don't want a musician being creative, don't get The Free Weezy Album."
Though The Free Weezy Album isn't completed yet but almost ready to go with a tentative release date, another hotly anticipated Wayne album Tha Carter V is done but now it seems like it may never see the light of day.
"It's super-done," Wayne admitted. "Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit. I would have released it yesterday if I could. But it's a dead subject right now. It's a jewel in the safe. It's that stash-house money."
Tha Carter V is in a "safe" because of the ongoing strain between Wayne and his longtime label Cash Money and his mentor Birdman, whom the rapper admitted he is no longer on speaking terms with. "I have no words. I'm super numb to it, to tell you the truth," he said about the man who discovered him when he was 12 and acted as a father figure for the then-young rapper.
Despite the lawsuit, Wayne was notably quiet on the matter, dismissing it as a "legal matter, homeboy," though he later admitted that the strain got to him. "I'm human," he said. "But it's nothing that a good blunt can't cure."
