Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V has been promised and delayed and promised and delayed to a level worthy of comparison to George R.R. Martin's remaining novels in his A Song of Ice and Fire saga (seriously George, you need to get moving). But it seems that light is finally on the horizon; Weezy has let slip in a new interview with radio station Q93 that, at long last, the record is "ready to drop." Listen to his full interview here.

Pinpointing the hold up is beyond any one specific answer, though a great deal of blame can be placed on Wayne's tortuously-long legal battle with Birdman and former label Cash Money Records. And while none of us can possibly decipher the inner workings of the U.S. legal system, Weezy exudes hopefulness in the interview. "Of course you’re going to see Tha Carter V," he says, "The fans deserve it to be right and that’s how it’s gonna be. I’mma make sure it’s right. I can drop whatever I want to drop. I keep dropping whatever I want to drop. But I’m not gonna give ’em Carter V the wrong way.”

Stay tuned to see if the record (or at least, a release date) will materialize. In the meantime, revisit Wayne's recent track "Like a Man" below.

In other music news, A$AP Rocky has turned in a stellar guest verse on Babyfather's new track "Selfish." Listen to it right here.
