“I personally plan on [Tha Carter V] being my final solo album, yes and it’s definitely the final Carter album. It’s the final Carter album. It’s stopping at five.”
— Lil Wayne reveals his plans to end his solo career to MTV News. Tha Carter series has been extremely successful. The first Tha Carter album, released in 2004, went gold and placed in the top-five of the Billboard Top 200. Tha Carter III and The Carter IV were Weezy’s most successful to date with both going certified multi-platinum and hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200. So it stands to reason that Wayne will go out with a bang with The Carter V … if he retires his solo career.
