With the much anticipated Lil Wayne project, Tha Carter V being released today, that will be what the hip hop community is focusing on. Kanye West has also announced he will be releasing his new project Yandhi as well this weekend.
In a tweet Ye, has paid homage to Lil Wayne and respectfully announced he won’t release his project on the same day, but a day later. This is what I call Real Recognising Real, and Legends work together instead of against each other.
I’m looking forward to the musical weekend ahead.
Lil Wayne couldn’t make it any clearer to his fans and everyone in the music industry, that the business bond between Cash Money and Young Money has been severed and officially no more. With the delay of his Carter 5 album, which was due for release last year, there was a lot of talk about his album being pushed back due to arrival of newer rappers onto the Cash Money roster who took priority over his own projects on the label. To apologise to his loyal fans, Lil Wayne has blessed us with a interim album, in the way of Sorry for the Wait 2.
The intro track, is his version of the club banger Coco, which brings you up to speed and tells you what is what regarding him, and his future with Cash Money. It’s fair to say Lil Wayne has no regrets wanting to leave Cash Money, and is looking forward to his future.
As you listen to the album it’s your typical Lil Wayne flavour until you get to track 11, which is his version of “You Guessed It”. The shots he takes at Birdman on this track are epic, and he has renamed the hook to “Bitch You Jealous”. Lil Wayne has once again delivered a undisputed banger filled 17 track album, with no fillers.
If you haven’t downloaded the free album, jump onto Datpiff and do it now, and I’m looking forward to Carter 5 dropping this spring, no one can stop Lil Wayne’s productions and creative release flow now, it’s Young Money only now, and the future is bright, no more dry rubbing hands.
