Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V didn’t come out Oct. 28 as planned because there was a slight problem: He recorded too many songs.
In a P.S.A. released yesterday, the rapper first blames the delayed release on skateboarding too much before revealing the truth, that he recorded a bunch of songs and doesn’t want to cheat his fans by only giving them a small sampling. “I worked on way too much to give y’all just half of it,” he says in the P.S.A. “I refused to cheat my fans. I refused to cheat myself.”
So now, Tha Carter V—Wayne’s 11th album —will be split into two parts, with the first part dropping Dec. 9. “It’s going to be crazy,” Wayne says. “You’re going to love it because I f—ing love it. If you don’t f—ing love it, then you don’t f—ing love love.”
To hold fans over, he released a track from the album titled “Gotti” that features the Lox—and that you will hopefully f—ing love.
