It’s Official: Lil Wayne Is Finally Releasing Tha Carter V This Week

I can’t believe I’m saying it, but Tha Carter V is almost here. For real this time.

Lil Wayne himself has announced that, after years of anticipation and leaks, the mythologized album will finally see the light of day on Thursday (September 27), his 36th birthday. The impending release comes seven years after Carter IV and follows a half-decade of agonizing delays and intense legal battles.

Wayne shared the news in a video posted to YouTube on Tuesday, thanking the loyal legions of fans who have stuck with him over the years. “Y’all hung in there with me, so I can’t do nothing but thank y’all for all the love and all the passion,” he said. “I always give y’all all of me, but with this album, I’m giving you more than me. This is four, five, six years of work that you’ll be listening to. I hope you enjoy it.”

For those that need a primer, Tha Carter V — the fifth edition of a series that dates back to 2004 — has been in the works since at least 2013, when Weezy first said it would be released. But the album was held in limbo for years as legal battles were waged between Wayne and Cash Money Records founder, Birdman. Their disputes were resolved in court earlier this year, and last month, Birdman joined Wayne onstage at Lil Weezyana Festival to publicly apologize to the rapper, ultimately clearing the way for Tha Carter V‘s release.

To help ramp up the excitement, Wayne has installed a countdown clock on his website, which is slowly but surely ticking its way to zero. Just hang in there a little longer, folks.

And in the meantime, please enjoy this now-iconic Wayne moment, in GIF form:

Air Jordan 7 Low Pack Takes Flight Next Week

At first thought, an Air Jordan 7 Low doesn’t sound like the best idea. However, in execution, the shoe itself isn’t nearly as bad as the initial thought of it.

With the help of a classic Air Jordan 7 colorway and two other styles that ring true in the Jordan Brand lineage — Concord and Taxi — the rollout of the 7 Low couldn’t have been more strategic. This marks a more favorable outcome than when the shoe was first unveiled ten years ago, in 2008.

Only seen and not released back then, it took a full decade for this idea and subsequent execution to come into full view. Look for the Air Jordan 7 Low Pack featuring the “Bordeaux,” “Bright Concord” and “Taxi” on September 27 via Nike SNKRS at 10am EDT.

Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Highlighter” Pack Takes Flight This Week

With summer now nearing its end, Jordan Brand loudly crescendos with the upcoming release of the Air Jordan 11 Low IE “Highlighter” Pack.

A slighter lesser version of the widely beloved Air Jordan 11 Low, the IE serves an alternate purpose removed from patent leather and the glossy finish of the Air Jordan 11 proper. Here, traditional leather coupled with elephant printed overlays evoke contrasting emotion heightened by striking fluorescents.

Releasing in three summer centric colorways –Crimson Flash, Volt and Rio Teal — this hyper tonal collection breathes new life into the 11 Low IE which is often sidelined when compared to its more traditional counterpart. Look for the “Highlighter” pack this Thursday via select Jordan retailers including Feature.

Air Jordan XXX2 Low “Last Shot” Takes Flight Next Week

Later this month, Jordan Brand will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Air Jordan 14 “Last Shot” with a retro release on June 14. As a companion piece, they’ll also launch a “Last Shot” edition of the Air Jordan XXX2 Low.

Themed after the shoe Michael Jordan wore during his Game 6 winner during the 1998 NBA Finals over an under equipped Byron Russell, largely produced in black with red accents, the date of the game is placed behind the shoes tongue to honor the Chicago Bulls sixth championship ring.

Fans of the Air Jordan XXX2 Low “Last Shot” can expect pairs in select stores on June 9.
