In a recent interview with Rap Up, Birdman confirmed something that Lil Wayne fans have been waiting years to find out: Tha Carter V is being released -- and soon. 

Feat. and more

When the interviewer asked the Cash Money mogul about the long-awaited project that Weezy has been fighting to drop for so long, he said: “We’ll get that this year. I’m guaranteeing you gon’ get it this year.” Baby also added that he “heard a few” songs on the album and it's definitely going to be worth the wait. 

"He is the best ever to me,” Baby continued. “A lot of success comes from under his umbrella. I think it’s gonna be the biggest album of 2018, one of them. Without a doubt.”

Though they've had a big falling out and are still in the middle of a major lawsuit, Birdman took time to speak about how talented of an artist Wayne is. “You only have one Wayne and you only have one Tupac,” he went on. “Tupac had 100 songs, before that we never knew of that s**t. Wayne had 100 features. That s**t is not normal in our business today. A ni**a might not want to hear two features from your ass. Let alone 100. Wayne had 100 No. 1s.”

And of course, Birdman couldn't end the interview without speaking about his fiancée, Toni Braxton. He said about her: “She’s a legend. She do her thing. She’s just prolific with that s**t. I think she’s a one-of-one and a very special talent in the music business.”
