Yeah, Yeah, Yeah! We heard this before. Birdman said that Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album will be out in 2017.
But he may be serious this time as he cosigned that promise in a recent interview.
“You will get it this year,” he told Billboard after performing with Mannie Fresh during All-Star Weekend. “Me and Wayne will be alright. I’ma make that work. That’s my son, and I love him, and we’ll make it happen.”
As most people know, Lil Wayne and Baby have been in a bitter legal battle over money. According to Wayne, Birdman owes him around $51 million dollars, and he said Cash Money refuses to release the next Carter project.
In 2016, it looked like the pair squashed the beef when they were seen together on stage in LIV Nightclub in Miami, but the truce was short-lived.
The veteran producer also talked about Wayne’s crazy work ethic.
“He’s still Wayne,” he said. “He’s still hustling. Last time we got together in the studio, dude did six songs in one night, so I was like ‘Oh my God, you still the same dude.'”
