For nearly three years, Lil Wayne has been talking about releasing Tha Carter IV. Following the success of 2008's Tha Carter III, rumors suggested the next Carter album would be released in October 2008. Instead, the announcement for 2010's Rebirth came.
In 2009, Lil Wayne planned to release Rebirth early in the year and Tha Carter IV later in the year. But, due to delays from the head label, Universal, Lil Wayne decided to release We Are Young Money in 2009. Early in 2010, Rebirth was finally released.
Later in 2010, Lil Wayne released I Am Not A Human Being from behind bars. Immediately following Wayne's release from prison, he began working on Tha Carter IV. Promotion of his rising single, "Right Above It," ended and all of the focus was on the new album. Finally, after over two years of discussion, Tha Carter IV is on the way, according to Mack Maine.
Mack Maine said David Banner is coming in to help Lil Wayne complete two more tracks and the album will be ready to go.
