Seven years since Tha Carter IV, Lil Wayne returns with the long-awaited fifth installment in his Carter series.
On Thursday night, Lil Wayne finally released his long delayed album Tha Carter V featuring guest appearances from Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Travis Scott and more. But let LeBron tell it, Lil Wayne has never left. Young Money now belongs exclusively to Wayne, and will continue to be distributed by Republic Records. "Tha Carter" was released in 2004 - James' rookie season was 2003-04.
Few aspects of the album sound like hip-hop-circa-2012, when the project was first teased. After a lengthy legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money, which was settled in June, the highly-anticipated album arrives on Wayne's 36th birthday.
