Tha Carter V finally arrives with a couple of years-old tracks, and an Ashanti feature. It’s Lil Wayne’s first album not to be released under the Cash Money label.
It’s also a hit. Tha Carter V pushes 480,000 equivalent album units its first week and earns the second-largest streaming week for an album. Twenty-two tracks debut on the Hot 100 and four—”Uproar,” “Mona Lisa” featuring Kendrick Lamar, "Don't Cry" with XXXTentacion, and “Let It Fly” starring Travis Scott—simultaneously hit the top 10, the most for an artist since Drake. Weezy season has arrived.
