At 5 p.m. sharp, Weezy shared a link to his website, which features a countdown to when the album will finally release. From the looks of things, Tha Carter V will be releasing on September 27 at midnight while the album cover has changed from what he teased weeks ago.
In the released video posted to his social media accounts, Wayne addressed his fans directly.
He said: “I heard there was a misunderstanding about the release date of the C 5. I heard yall got mixed up and thought it was gonna get release like last week or something. Well, I would like for you to know that since y’all stuck with me and hung in there anyway for like the past four or five years through all of this but uh on my birthday, I actually have something special. I will be releasing Tha Carter V on my birthday.” (Lil Wayne’s birthday is September 27.)
The superstar entertainer goes on to thank fans for their support through the years.
“Every ounce of anything I have left in my heart, it goes to y’all. Honestly, my fans, the supporters, the world. Of course, it’s my family and God first, and I am nothing, absolutely nothing without my fans,” he said.
