Lil Wayne could have a brand new album looming on the musical horizon.
Fans have anxiously awaited the release of Tha Carter V what seems like ages. Although Lil Wayne hasn’t officially said anything about the project in a while, there’s a possibility the record could finally see the light of day.
Drake recently hit up Twitter with a brief message that caused a bit of a sensation on the micro-blogging site. The post was short and sweet, though this didn’t stop folks from wondering if the long-awaited album is finally happening.

Of course, this isn’t the first time news about the arrival of Tha Carter V has hit Twitter. Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records’ Mel Smith teased the arrival of the record in October of last year.

“Will this be a real retirement or one of your usual retirements, or a rap retirement when you make 12 albums after that. I mean Tupac died and he’s still making albums,” Kimmel joked.
He replied, “Yes that is true, I want to retire after ‘Tha Carter V.'”
So how do folks on Twitter feel about the possibility of album’s potential release? Check out some Twitter reactions on the subject below.

I actually like all 4 of the Carter albums. 'Tha Carter V' should be just as good, if not better.

I feel like Wayne realizes how trash his music has been lately.. With that being said, I've got high hopes for The Carter V
