EARLIER: Following the delay of "Tha Carter V," Lil Wayne, 32, went on a tweeting spree Wednesday afternoon to express his discontent with record label Cash Money Records:

"Tha Carter V," an album Lil Wayne previously stated would be his last, was originally slated to drop in May. After the debut of a single, "Grindin," and embarking on the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour this summer, the album remained unreleased. Wayne dropped another track, "Gotti," in late October, before announcing that his new album would be released in two parts -- the first on Dec. 9.

As Rolling Stone notes, the leaderboard on Cash Money's website claims the album is "coming soon."
