Rapper Lil' Wayne is ready to release his new album 'Tha Carter IV', the fourth installment of the 'Tha Carter' series, on Monday, August 29th, 2011 via Cash Money Records/Universal Motown - Although, taking advantange of his much-anticipated performance on the VMA's, Weezy has ordered that his new album goes into sale on all digital retailers following his VMA performance, that is, at midnight on August 28th. It's been a LONG journey the recording process of 'Tha Carter IV', so it better have worth the wait!
The Young Money boss was supossed to put out 'Tha Carter IV' immediately after the third installment of the series, which was released in the summer of 2008. However, Weezy did not want a new 'Tha Carter' album to be released so soon, especially after 'Tha Carter III' which Wayne had in high regard. So the New Orleans MC released in the interim the records "Rebirth" and "I Am Not a Human Being".
Following that, the 'A Mili' star found himself going into jail for illegal possesion of a weapon. He basically spent the whole of 2010 in prison. When he got out, Wayne did not want to lose any minute, as he was ready to work on 'Tha Carter IV'...and almost a year after his jail release, here we are. The new CD is almost out! The release has been preceded by three singles "6 Foot 7 Foot", "John", and "How To Love", all hits, although the latter has stand-out the most, managing to peak at #5 on the Hot 100. Weezy's back! Ready to reclaim his throne at the top of the charts.
