Lil Wayne is gearing up to release a new project, Tha Fix Before Tha VI, ahead of his highly anticipated new album Tha Carter VI.
On Wednesday, September 20, the New Orleans native shared a link on his Instagram account, leading fans to a pre-save page for the upcoming project. The forthcoming offering is an obvious hint that the release will be a prequel to his Tha Carter VI album, which was announced last year August.
The cover art for the project shows a rose-colored image of Tunechi in a cheetah-print coat putting on sunglasses. No further details have been given on the project but fans are eagerly anticipating the release of new music from Lil Wayne.
“Mixtape before tha album!!! He’s in that mode,” one fan commented, while former Cash Money rapper Cory Gunz added “fire emoji.”
“Tha Carter VI,” Wayne’s 14th studio album, has been a hot topic since 2022. In a video shared on social media, Wayne expressed his gratitude to his fans and casually dropped the news, saying, “I’m not sure if you heard, but Carter VI is on the way.”
While Wayne recently dropped his latest single “Kat Food,” it remains uncertain if it will be included in this newly revealed project.
In the meantime, fans can pre-save Tha Fix Before Tha VI on their streaming services. The project is expected to be released in the coming weeks.
