Nicki got some features that – I’ve been in the studio with her lately – that she’s just killing. She also gonna be working on her solo project and she’s dropping,” said Maine.

This news confirms Birdman’s statement that the Carter V will “definitely come out” in 2017. “The situation with me and my son, I’m going to put it all behind us and just let it move forward,” he said. “Wayne is one of the best artists ever to do the game, and I want to see him continue to do what he been doing, and I’m going to support whatever he’s doing.”
