Despite Drake-fueled rumors that Lil Wayne's final album would come out this spring, it sounds like Tha Carter V might not drop for months.

According to Cash Money president Mack Maine, Nicki Minaj will drop Young Money's first (and potentially only) solo release of 2014 with The Pink Print.

XXL asked Maine outright if Minaj's effort would arrive before Lil Wayne's. His answer: “It will be before Carter V as of now…no concrete date yet.” 

So far, both records have been strongly represented through stellar previews and star collaborations (Lil Wayne's Drake duet, "Believe Me"; Nicki's "Yasss Bish!" with Soulja Boy), and fans are champing at the bit for an official announce as tracks continue to drop left and right

The YMCMB prez also confirmed that both records will have official release dates instead of being Beyonce-style surprises. So considering we don't even have a release date for The Pink Print, it's safe to say it might be a while before we see Weezy's.
