The plea for a new chapter of Wayne, both musically and personally, wasn't unwarranted in the least but on the night of his 36th birthday, the younger Mr. Carter went ahead and dropped Tha Carter V, an album that finds him at his most detectably motivated state since the top of this decade. The album, which features Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, XXXTentacion & more, has already received rave reviews & is being considered one of the best albums to come out this year. Tunechi eventually released a video announcing the official date.
A number of collaborators have been involved in the production of the record, including Mannie Fresh, Swizz Beatz, Metro Boomin, and Ben Billions. A couple months later, during the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour, Wayne unveiled the album's artwork, which remains unchanged four years later.
CV, the fifth installment of Wayne's chart-topping, Grammy-winning series that started in 2004, almost became a pop culture fable about the perils of music industry politics, following years of legal battles with his Cash Money Records boss and musical father figure, Birdman. It was originally scheduled for release in May 2014, but it was soon delayed. The hip-hop veteran has saluted Weezy F. Baby on his latest and long-awaited new Tha Carter V release. The Los Angeles Lakers star is already showing love for Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V". I hope you enjoy it.
