Lil Wayne’s Carter IV Coming on June 21
Earlier this week, rumors hit the ’net that Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated album, Tha Carter IV, was pushed back from May 16 until June. XXLMag.com has learned exclusively, that the claims are indeed true.
Young Money president, Mack Maine, informed XXL that Weezy’s follow up to 2008’s multi-platinum selling Carter III LP will be hitting shelves on June 21. We also confirmed that the graduation photo of a pre-teenage Wayne, sporting his signature facial tattoos that leaked online earlier this week, as well, is the official cover art to the disc.
Weezy F. Baby is currently on his I Am Still Music tour with label mate Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross (who appears in the video to his new single “If I Die Today [John]”), and Travis Barker. The crew’s next stop is at Los Angeles, CA’s Staples Center on Friday, April 22. —Jesse Gissen
