He continued, "I always give y'all all of me, but with this album, I'm giving you more than me."

Wayne had settled an outstanding lawsuit against his record label Cash Money in May that granted him freedom to release his project. The artist said he'd been working on the album for roughly six years.

The new album follows 2011's Tha Carter IV, and will have the same cover artwork that was revealed in 2014.
