Birdman: Tha Carter V Will Be Released Before Nicki Minaj’s New Album

(AllHipHop News) Maybe this was the news that Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant was speaking on. A week after Bryant denied that Tha Carter V will be released on May 5th, the Cash Money Records head honcho Birdman gives a little more clarity.

While discussing Nicki Minaj’s career with Billboard, Birdman stated that some of Young Money will appear on Nicki Minaj’s new album that has no release date as-of-yet. While there is no firm release date for Nicki or Wayne’s album, Birdman assures that Tha Carter V will arrive before Minaj’s third album, The Pinkprint:

This album is going to have a little bit of everything but more rap. I am sure some of the team will be on it. She’s still doing her thing, then getting features on it. She’s definitely coming this year. She hasn’t picked a date yet. What she did for Young Money is totally different then what she’s doing for her album. She’s more girly-er. ‘Tha Carter V’ will definitely come before Nicki’s [album].

The release date for Nicki’s new album may never be released until the day the album comes out, according to the rap superstar. Back in February, Nicki Minaj informed Angie Martinez on The Angie Martinez Show that “The Pink Print is not going to have a release date. You’ll never know when it’s coming until it just comes.” However, Minaj did specify that her album release will not be identical to Beyonce’s, but similar:

Not all the way. I won’t set a release date until the album is really done and until I’ve lived with it for a long time… I’m not going to pull a B, I’m just going to chill for a second and see how it goes.

    I take it YM is running low on original record names….The Pinkprint? And she’s not going to pull a B, yet she’s pulling a B and selling some BS as the reason she’s not pulling a B.

      Who cares what the name is, she can name her album whatever she feels like? What Nicki needs to do is start rapping… Nicki has the ability she just doesnt try anymore.

    Birdman is gonna put his new bitches album(Young HOMO Thug) out before nikki Garbaj that’s all! The Pinkprint??? Sounds like a Porno title movie title or some kind of panties!


    That YoungMoney bandwagon is fading fast, it is almost safe to say that YMCMB is not hot right now….Whatever they release better be good, because that “Looking a$$ Ni$$a” song is a sign of a how no one will care.

    Tha Carter V needs to come out really soon. Giving it the chance to be the album played throughout the summer will help it a lot. I know that’s gonna be all i listen to when it drops.
