Well, that day is finally here as the rapper announced the release date of his long-awaited album Tha Carter V.

Making a bold statement, another user tweeted: "If Lil Wayne think the world gonna cancel all 2018 albums just because of Carter V then he's absolutely right". So Friday morning at 12:01 AM, expect plenty of Wayneheads to be shedding tears of joy.

As we know, the album's release is a big victory for Weezy and his fans as it comes following friction and legal battles with Birdman and his label, Cash Money Records. Wayne famously sued the latter for $51 million in order to be released from his contract.

Watch his announcement video below.

One of James" many alter-egos is "A-R Bron, ' a reference to his work as an adviser and early listener of many contemporary hip-hop records.

"I wanted to do an airbrush theme that was very unique to the South where he's from", Heron told Highsnobiety.

Someone commented 'I So Love Y'all Relationship I So Love Wayne Happy Happy Birthday To The King Now Let's Finally Head This Music'.

The 23-track album features Nicki Minaj, Ashanti, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar and recently deceased XXXTentacion.

Each drop contains Wayne merchandise that will only be available for 24 hours, much like the approach Scott took with his Astroworld collection. In November, he released the fourth single from Tha Carter V and fans wondered why the entire album wasn't out yet. After all, Like Vin Diesel and "Fast & Furious", "Tha Carter" franchise is where Wayne is truly home: Loose but tight, haughtily caustic and grimy but also comic, and cutting straight to the bone.
