“We’re very close to dropping the album,” Smith told the Griffin. “It’s going to be a huge surprise to everyone, it’s an incredible album … I can’t release the date because he wants to surprise people, he wants his true fan base to get excited but he’s worked extremely hard on it and you won’t be disappointed.”
“He’s one of the artists like Prince who just continues to record,” he said. “He does it for the love of the art, for the record, he continues to work hard to top himself, like when he does the ‘I Am Not A Human Being’ records that he’s, which are a little more rock and roll tangent, a little more pop tangent while “Tha Carter V” is a little more Lil Wayne getting it to you straight from New Orleans.”

Looks like we will get, “Tha Carter V,” sooner than expected.
