Lil Wayne career-closing album delayed again29 october 2014, 10:34
The fifth installment of Lil Wayne's "Carter" series -- which the hip-hop giant has said would be the album that caps his career -- has been delayed again, AFP reports.
"Tha Carter V," which was initially due out in May, was nowhere to be found on Tuesday, which was the updated release date.
There was no immediate announcement from Lil Wayne but the president of his Young Money label was quoted by hip-hop blogger Karen Civil as saying that no new release date has been set.
The New Orleans rapper -- whose given name is Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. -- has released four "Carter" albums that have been among his most acclaimed works. He was the most nominated artist at the 2009 Grammys for his "Tha Carter III."
The 32-year-old has repeatedly said that "Tha Carter V" will be his last album as he wants to spend more time with his four children.
He has nonetheless remained active -- he is featured on a new single from rapper Nicki Minaj released this week, along with other megastars Drake and Chris Brown.
Album delays are nothing new for Lil Wayne, who completely re-recorded 2011's "Tha Carter IV" after getting out of prison on a conviction in New York for illegal weapons possession.
