Lil Wayne is the face of Billboard‘s September 15 issue, and with that comes breaking news from the Drai’s resident: he is now the sole owner of Young Money Entertainment.

Does this mean we can finally see Tha Carter V dropping soon? All signs lead to a resounding ‘yes’ with this tweet from the official Young Money Twitter account:

According to Billboard, this will be his first album in his career to not have the Cash Money logo on it. The years-long legal drama didn’t phase Lil Wayne, and he has nothing but a positive outlook for the future: “I didn’t let it get to me too much … Just the confidence in knowing that there’s always a tomorrow and I’m going to make sure that tomorrow is bright. Some people can’t go on [like] that, like, ‘OK, tomorrow will be better.’ They need it to be better right now. And thank God I didn’t, and I never did.” The exclusive feature touches on a variety of topic, including his upbringing, fellow label mates, his relationship with Birdman, and much more.
