Listen to Lil Wayne on iHeartRadio

Lil Wayne may be gearing up to release the fifth chapter of his "Tha Carter" album series. 

Cash Money Records Senior Vice President of Promotions, Mel Smith, recently took to Twitter to announce that there would soon be new music from the Young Money-Cash Money family.  He followed that revelation with words "Carter five." 

If the news is true, it could mean Lil Wayne is ready to say goodbye to hip-hop.  In an interview on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live" in June, Lil Wayne revealed that he would like to retire after releasing Tha Carter Five.  At the time he also hinted that he didn't plan on releasing the fifth installation of "Tha Carter" series anytime soon.  

Lil Wayne is currently on tour in Europe.  In the coming week, Weezy is set to make stops in Amsterdam, Stockholm and Oslo.
