Lil Wayne claims this is the final chapter in The Carter series. And he's also mentioned that this is his final solo album ever, unless someone forks up "$25-35 million".
So why not just retitle "I Am Not A Human Being II" to fit the mood? "Because I know y'all want me around for a little bit, and Carter V is my last album," Weezy revealed. "Man, I've been rappin' since I was 8 years old. I'm 30 now, man. That's a long time, man."
Weezy put out his first solo album, Tha Block Is Hot, in 1999, but before that, he was cutting his teeth on Cash Money Records as part of the groups Hot Boys and the B.G.'z. If you go on to count his nine solo LPs, four Hot Boys albums, 2006 tag-team album with Birdman (Like Father, Like Son), his 2009 YMCMB compilation (We Are Young Money) and the dizzying number of mixtapes he has dropped, it becomes easier to understand how Wayne may be all rapped out.
"I signed my contract at 11, I went platinum at 14. I'm 30 now. Thank God I haven't put out an album that hasn't went platinum," he said. "To just keep it goin' like that, I think not only am I being greedy, I'm fooling myself to think that it will continue to be that great."
On February 14, 2014 Drake, during a show in New Orleans, brought out Lil Wayne and 2 Chainz. Drake then revealed that Lil Wayne's next LP "Tha Carter V" release date is May 5th, 2014. Tez pushed it back. No release date yet
Lil Wayne has since confirmed that "Tha Carter V" will no longer be his final album. He now is planning on releasing another LP titled "Da Other Album". C5 is set for an August-September release, while DOA is set for an October-November release. Lil Wayne also stated that he plans to release up to 7 albums in the year 2015, already having 93 finished album-ready songs.
The lead single "Believe Me", it can be viewed below and it includes a feature from Drake.
I wasn’t too excited about this to be honest but believe me, believe is fire. Cannot be exfoliated…!
i hope this is his last cd
This album is hopefully going to be brilliant. Believe me sounds good, D’usse is amazing. The recording session of Tina Turna Need A Tune Up sounds good and the snippet of Side Bitch sounds like a sick Banger.
New single called “Krazy” is now on Kingdom Leaks!
Let us pray that this is his last album. the only thing good that’ll come out of this album is if Kanye or some other good rapper is featured on it. Don’t hate on Ye now lmao
you guys already have the august 25/29th release he said during an MTV interview
Wayne needs a solid release date. He’s made everyone wait too long anyway. Its almost August and there is still no album cover or a track list. Wayne needs to get C5 in gear or else everyone will think its the next Detox
Updated to official cover and added official release date -> Oct 28th
Tell you something you don’t know? I’ll tell ya something I DO know. The new single, ‘Krazy’ turned my brain to mush.
Can’t wait for C5!!!
Wer da leek????
This is probably going to get pushed back.

Pushed to February, but an exact date is has not been set.
