Lil Wayne (AKA Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) performs as a part of the America’s Most Wanted Tour at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater on Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013 in Irvine, Calif.
After multiple platinum-selling albums, dozens of chart-topping singles, and four Grammy awards, Lil Wayne’s solo rap career may be finally coming to an end. In a new interview with MTV News about his upcoming album “Tha Carter V,” Weezy announced that the project will likely be his last.”I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it’s definitely the final Carter album,” he told the outlet. “It’s the final Carter album. It’s stopping at five.”Lil Wayne released his first Carter album, “Tha Carter” in 2004.
The album performed strongly, going gold and hitting the top-five on the Billboard 200. His most successful Carter albums were his two most recent: 2008’s “Tha Carter III” and 2011’s “The Carter IV,” both of which hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and were certified multi-platinum.
