Did Lil Wayne punk fake an album drop date? No Wayne don’t be the next Shad Moss punk fake specialist! Probably not really his fault but fans still went in.
Lil Wayne’s album was rumored to drop at midnight as fans stayed up anticipating that it would be hot.
What really happened? According to hnhh,
a few hip hop websites sent a mock cover into circulation, then celeb gossip specialist Perez Hilton circulated the same cover piece, the same Perez Hilton who prematurely announced that Carter V would be Weezy’s last before retirement, this back in 2014.
Fans were upset to find out that the album was not dropped, and then thats when the chaos began.

Needless to say, we know the ball doesn’t drop soley on Lil Wayne. Due to the falling out of him and Birdman speculations point towards revenge.
It goes without saying that a big part of the buzz is based around the repressed status of the album, stemming from Weezy’s bust-up with Cash Money founder Bryan “Birdman” Williams, which saw the album sent to a waiting shed next to Tyga’s unpublished work. Not to mention, Carter V is part of a historically important series of albums, excluding Carter IV which fell short of expectations.
So when can we truly expect the Carter V to drop? Wait for it..
