Lil Wayne‘s long-awaited Tha Carter V is still slated to release sometime in the fall, after reaching a settlement on two long-running lawsuits with Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group.

In a new cover story with Billboard, Weezy talks more about the forthcoming album which was initially scheduled to drop in 2014, the issues leading to the delayed release, his stance on Drake and Nicki Minaj, as well as revealing that he once attempted suicide, and more.

Read the most glaring takeaways from the interview below, and for the entire cover story, head over to Billboard.

On the lawsuits with Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group…

“I’m a very passionate guy about anything I do. So once I find out that I’m being f**ked over, I’m going to be passionate about that emotion toward how I feel about it.”

On how the delayed release of Tha Carter V was a distraction from his art and not the money he was owed…

“The difficult part of it, was finally having to pull the curtains back and see what the hell was out that window — having to actually care about other things than my music and my lyrics.”
