Lil Wayne will release not one, but two solo studio albums this year. So much for those retirement plans.
The New Orleans-bred rapper revealed plans for a second album during his latest Weezy Wednesdays webisode. "This year, not only will I be dropping Tha Carter V, but I'm dropping two albums. Be looking forward to two albums, two albums from me because... I been out the game for a second," he said.
The extra LP became necessary after he realized the amount of material he recorded for Tha Carter V. But it won't stop there. Wayne also plans to release additional projects in 2015. "I went to work on Tha Carter V and I don't stop working, so it was either Tha Carter V gonna be 93 songs, or we're gonna have to figure this out. So what we said was, 'Alright, we're going to drop two albums this year, then we're going to probably end up dropping like seven next year," he said.
In other news, Weezy recently announced plans to head out on tour with Young Money label-mate Drake. The 31-city tour will kick off Aug. 8 and go through Cincinnati, Virginia Beach, Charlotte, Atlanta, Austin and Los Angeles before wrapping up Sept. 27 in Woodlands, Texas—with additional dates to come depending on ticket sales.
No release date has yet been revealed for Tha Carter V or the currently untitled second album.
