Friday, Mar 28, 2014 5:38PM
Cash Money Records head Birdman has offered a mini-update on Lil Wayne's long-awaited Carter V album and promised it would hit retail outlets before fellow labelmate Nicki Minaj's upcoming Pinkprint LP.
When asked what fans could expect from Nicki's solo effort, Baby did not hold back on dishing out high expectations.
"For the new album, she's doing what she feels like doing and we're supporting her. You hear a lot of growth in her music. She's coming confident and hard. We expect for this to be one of the biggest [albums] from her. It's more rap. This album is going to have a little bit of everything but more rap. I am sure some of the team will be on it."

Birdman also referenced Weezy F. Baby's long-awaited final Carter release dropping before Nicki's.
"She's still doing her thing, then getting features on it. She's definitely coming this year. She hasn't picked a date yet. What she did for Young Money is totally different then what she's doing for her album. She's more girly-er. 'Tha Carter V' will definitely come before Nicki's [album]." (Billboard)
Recently, Wayne's manager Cortez Bryant said the rapper's final solo album would not make its May 5 deadline.
Cortez Bryant recently confirmed to NeverNotDope TV that Lil Wayne's upcoming Tha Carter V album will not be released in stores on May 5th, which is the date Drake previously announced. Weezy F Baby's best friend and manager also spoke on the project a little bit by calling it "amazing", as well as saying it will be better than Tha Carter III. While Tez would not confirm a new release date for C5, he did say that us fans should "pay attention to this week coming" for news on it. The video of this interview, which you can watch below, was uploaded on March 21st so it should be this week that we are currently in right now! (Lil Wayne HQ)
Recently, Wayne admitted time and maturity played major roles on molding C5.
"I say it's different, because I'm older and wiser, and I know more things and I know more about myself now," the decorated rap star told MTV News as he leaned back on the couch of his trailer Wednesday morning during a break from shooting Young Money's "Senile" video in Los Angeles. "I'm more careful about what I'm doing and trying to be more careful what I'm saying," he explained about his state of mind while recording C5. (MTV)
