Two years after the arrival of Tha Carter V, Grammy Award-winning rapper Lil Wayne has released the deluxe edition of his 12th studio album via Young Money Records/Republic Records. The album features seven new, unreleased tracks and three previously released tracks, bringing the tracklist to a whopping 33 songs across just over two hours.
The additional tracks on The Carter V boast collaborations with Post Malone (“What About Me”), Gucci Mane (“In This House”), 2 Chainz (“Siri”), and Raekwon (“More To The Story”). This star-studded lineup builds on the original album’s features, which included appearances by Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, and Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter.
Wayne’s Tha Carter series first began in 2004, with each album coming within one to three years of each other. Following the release of Tha Carter IV in 2011, the fifth installment was expected to arrive in 2014. It was only days before the project’s expected December release date that it was announced that Tha Carter V was shelved. The album was delayed for an additional four years before its arrival in 2018, seven years after the release of Tha Carter IV.
Tha Carter V debuted at No.1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart, marking the rap icon’s fourth No.1 album. Earning 480,000 equivalent album units and 433 million streams in its first week, according to Nielsen Music, Tha Carter V opened with the third-largest week for an album that year as well as the second-largest streaming week ever.
The highly-anticipated album’s deluxe edition follows the release of Wayne’s most recent album Funeral. Earlier This summer, Wayne celebrated the 5th anniversary of the Free Weezy Album (FWA) by
dropping the project on all digital streaming platforms. He also recently released the fan-favorite, critically-acclaimed No Ceilings mixtape on all digital streaming platforms.
