Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V has been pushed back, but tonight Wayne tries to mend the hearts of his disappointed fans with a new song and a P.S.A. on the status of the album. Lil Wayne explains that the album was pushed back for a quality control issue, explaining that he recorded so many songs that he didn't want to cheat the fans with half of a product.
In order to give us Tha Carter V in it's most complete form, Wayne has announced that he is releasing the album in two parts with the first part of the Carter V dropping on December 9. It is interesting to note that Wayne has alluded to the possibility of there being two albums from him (the other titled Tha Other Album) this year on an episode of "Weezy Wednesdays."
To further prove his point and show that he is serious about this plan, Wayne has released the hard hitting single "Gotti" featuring The Lox, which you can stream at the top of the page. The song is heavily boom-bap influenced, which is right up Jadakiss and Styles P's alley as they start off the song before letting Wayne finish it while guitars wail under the production. Wayne gets nostalgic about on the song, talking candidly about his upbringing before bragging about going platinum before he was even a teenager. With the updated release date for Tha Carter V, Lil Wayne has effectively re-ignited the intrigue behind what is now his biggest project to date.
