The Cash Money Records co-founder doubles down on dropping the album this year.

(AllHipHop News) Birdman has been making the media rounds to promote his Apple Music documentary Before Anythang: The Cash Money Story. While speaking with Billboard, the label head claimed Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V album will be released in the coming months.

"You will get it this year," insisted Birdman. "Me and Wayne will be aight. I’ma make that work. That’s my son and I love him, and we’ll make it happen."

During a sit down with Rap-Up, the New Orleans native reinforced his intention to drop Wayne's long-delayed musical project in 2018. The LP has been in limbo for over five years as a contractual disagreement between Birdman and Weezy has played out in public and in the courts.
