According to reports, the original version of ‘Tha Carter V’ was supposed to drop way before 2018, but it got delayed due to Lil Wayne’s legal battle with Cash Money President Birdman.
Tha Carter V included collaborations with Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, XXXTentacion, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, and more.
Some artists who will be making guest appearances on Lil Wayne’s original album are Post Malone, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, and the legendary Raekwon.
In addition to the standard 23 tracks, Tha Carter V features 10 songs that didn’t make the original album. The new additions include ‘Life of Mr. Carter,’ ‘Holy,’ ‘Lost,’ and ‘Scottie,’ along with collaborative tracks with Raekwon (‘More to the Story’) and 2 Chainz (‘Siri’).
The project’s artwork features a semi-nude Lil Wayne showing off his tattooed-covered back. The Grammy-winning artiste can be seen raising his hands in the shape of a ‘V’ reminding us of ‘The Carter V.’
