Worth the wait


The album made for everyone that has missed Wayne

The fifth installment of Tha Carter has finally been released after a good five years of fans missing the one and only Lil Wayne. The album should have originally been released in 2014, but legal issues with Cash Money Records prevented Wayne from releasing the album. After separating with the record label in June 2018, he announced that he would be finally releasing this album in September. In November of 2012, Wayne announced that Tha Carter V would be his final album as a solo artists meaning there will only be five of the series of Tha Carter.

Wayne released 23 songs for the fans that have waited years for his final album. Starting the album off with an intro speech from his mother explaining how proud she is of her son, called “I Love You Dwayne.” His mother, Jacida Carter, stated that she was excited about the album and that the fans that have missed Wayne will love the album as much as her.

She ends her speech off with heartwarming words, “Mama love you, I can’t wait til your album come out because everybody asking about it and I know it’s gon’ be a beautiful album. Love you Dwayne.”

This introduced the album that made his mother proud and instantly topped the charts the day it came out.

Artists including XXXTentacion, Travis Scott, Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Mack Maine and Nivea helped Wayne through these five years to produce such a classic piece. Songs such as, “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar and “Let It Fly” featuring Travis Scott climbed the charts, proving to be favorites. “Mona Lisa” was originally recorded back in 2014, but still remains to be flawless in a different time. Wayne ends the album off with a song also recorded in 2014, that explains his suicide attempt as a child, called “Let It All Work Out.” Putting his life out for the public, Wayne shows his story through music perfectly.

This album truly spoke to me and I am sure it spoke to others who have been waiting for Wayne to drop this album. I believe that all 23 of these songs were perfectly put together and all mean something to Wayne and every artist that was involved in putting this album together.
