Lil Wayne is an absolute beast. He was born in 1982, and has been active in the rap game ever since 1991! And ever since making the decision to become a rapper, Weezy has released eleven studio albums, one collaborative album, three compilation albums, two EPs, twenty mixtapes, and countless singles and music videos. Now some of those studio albums are part of his ‘Tha Carter‘ series. And the last time we received a new ‘Carter’ album was way back on August 29th 2011 with ‘Tha Carter IV.’ And over the past 7 years since that release, fans have been patiently waiting for any updates regarding ‘Tha Carter V.’
Last week, rumors began to circulate that Lil Wayne was going to release his long awaited ‘Tha Carter V‘ on Friday, September 21st. Well the 21st came, and no album was released, and there wasn’t even a single mention of the album from Weezy. Well earlier this week, he took to social media to thank his fans for staying loyal over all the years, and to reveal that his new album would be released on his birthday.
Well guess what day it is – it’s Lil Wayne’s 36th birthday. And what better way to celebrate a birthday than to release a new album! The 23 track project features massive collabs with Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, XXXTentacion, and so much more.
