Lil Wayne's 'Tha Carter V' Arrives - Late, But Not Worse For Wear

Lil Wayne announced the release of Tha Carter V

Lil Wayne released his highly-anticipated album Tha Carter V on Friday (Sept. 21), and fans are losing their minds on social media.

Wayne has released projects in the interim including last year's well-received Dedication 6 and D6: Reloaded along with the joint album Collegrove with 2 Chainz.

Tunechi's new project is 23-tracks deeps and features a healthy amount of guests including the late XXXTentacion, Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj and Snoop Dogg, among others. A couple months later, during the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour, Wayne unveiled the album's artwork, which remains unchanged four years later.

A number of collaborators have been involved in the production of the record, including Mannie Fresh, Swizz Beatz, Metro Boomin, and Ben Billions. "Y'all hung in there with me, so I can't do nothing but thank y'all for all the love, for all the passion", he said in the video.

You can download Wayne's new album off of iTunes here. I hope you enjoy it.

Aside from being concerned for his well-being, the added benefit of Dwayne Carter being freed from Cash Money - for him and fans - was that he'd finally be clear to drop the fifth installment of Tha Carter series, which was initially set to release in 2014. On that song, he rapped, "And when I attempted suicide, I didn't die / I remember how mad I was on that day / Man, you gotta let it go before it get up in the way".
