Tha Carter V: Mack Maine teases track from new Lil Wayne album (Video)


Lil Wayne’s highly anticipated new album, Tha Carter V, was reportedly set to be released in May as announced earlier in the year by label-mate Drake. Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant has since declined those reports, and wouldn’t give a date.

Well,right before May was scheduled to arrive, Los Angeles Lakers star Kobe Bryant tweeted out the cover of Lil Wayne’s forthcoming album. It has built up some more hype surrounding the album.

Now Wayne’s label-mate Mack Maine posted what appears to be a little snippet of a song from Tha Carter V on his Instagram account. It looks more like a video trailer than raw audio and shows Drake as well. It has the same Carter V season mention that Bryant’s Tweet had.

With Beyonce dropping a surprise album, who knows what could happen with Tha Carter V.
