Billboard reports that Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V will be released on May 5. The announcement was made at Drake's concert at the House of Blues in New Orleans last night. Wayne came out at the concert, which was part of the kick-off events for the NBA All-Star Game in New Orleans tomorrow night.
This comes after Young Money VP of promotion Mel Smith told Canisius College newspaper The Griffin that the label was "very close to dropping the album". The date wasn't revealed at the time because Wayne wanted to "surprise people."
The release date will be three years after the release Tha Carter IV. It debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, selling 964,000 copies in its first week. That was followed with last year's I Am Not A Human Being II, which debuted at #2 with 217,000 in the first week.
