Friday 18 March 2011
Announced March 18, US rapper Lil Wayne's highly anticipated upcoming album,
Tha Carter IV, is set to drop on May 16 in the US. No announcement yet on the exact release date for other countries.
This album will be Lil Wayne's fourth in his Tha Carter series, and his first album release since serving time at New York's Rikers Island prison for gun crime. He was released last November 4.
