  • Brand Johnny

  • Weezy4prez

    Probably drops friday

    • Weezy4prez

      Or Thursday night

    • fewcha

      wale just dropped a new single today but it wasn’t this one

      • Weezy4prez

        Shit. So we’re probably gonna have to wait until the album drops then?

        • Patrick H

          Does the album even have a release date?

          • Weezy4prez

            No clue bruh

            • Khosta

              It does

  • Torianbadass

    Lil Wayne have 23 certified platinum singles which is more than any other rapper #facts

    • fewcha

      cool

    • Weezy4prez

      Is that including singles he features on or just HIS singles?

      • Torianbadass

        his singles

        • Time

          You sure?

          • Khosta

            Yes

  • dharma

    This hard.

    • Khosta

      Tbh

  • Moneyboyk

    Jae millz should of been left ym tbh

    • Nathaniel Diaz

      Im sure he ghostwriting for checks. What made you randomly say this?

      • fewcha

        youngmoneyhq just posted an article saying he left

        • CARTER V

          I think it aint nothing bad. Wayne rumored to sign to Roc Nation. And in Jae Millz comment section on this instagram post a girl signed to Roc Nation commented “Showtime *sunglasses emoji*). I think wayne is moving to Roc Nation and takin jae with him or something like that. I bet

          • Moneyboyk

            That lady that commented under the pic a manager at roc

          • Ydo Beatz

            He prolly gonna ghostewrite sum stuff for Roc

      • Moneyboyk

        8 years, no album no marketing no nothing, all he got was mixtape features and liv on sunday

        • Patrick H

          Young Money suck at managing their artists, I don’t know why anyone would sign to them tbh.

          • Moneyboyk

            They did good wit drake and nicki but after they blew up, ym was like fuck the rest

          • Get It

            If they make sooooooooo much off of Lil wayne nicki and drake it’s hard to think about the little guys.

        • Lmaoo sadly true

    • Reptar

      YM only help niggas who help themselves. Drake been said YMCM/Universal only did his distribution. So that means Ovo did all of drakes marketing & promo

      • Khosta

        Ovo a new thing kys

      • Khosta

        Ovo a new thing kys

      • Moneyboyk

        They def was pushing the shit out drake, cortez was managing drake before he even signed wit them, everybody is not a star but i never seen them even attemp to do something wit jae milz

        • Get It

          Jae never had a hit single… Cashmoney only market you if you have radio appeal. If you see t streets nothing. Or gudda. Lil twist should have been a star I believe. He had ppl on Twitter going crazy. But he got mixed up in the wrong crowd.

    • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

      He didn’t fit tbh

  • fewcha

    why wale drop a new single today and it wasn’t this one lol

  • Patrick H

    You can’t blame Jae Millz for leaving Young Money but he should of stayed a bit longer cause it’s all going to change soon when Wayne swaps Cash Money for Roc Nation.

    • CARTER V

      I think it aint nothing bad. Wayne rumored to sign to Roc Nation. And in Jae Millz comment section on this instagram post a girl signed to Roc Nation commented “Showtime *sunglasses emoji*). I think wayne is moving to Roc Nation and takin jae with him or something like that.

      • Khosta

        Reach

  • Time

    This sounds dope.

  • Khosta

    I just knew Lil Wayne wasn’t gonna disappoint, he never does

  • Khosta

    Yall seen the Skhreli interview he said the person who sold him C5 is not in Wayne’s camp but he sold it to him legally. However he states that only Wayne makes decisions bout C5 and he controls it, so if Wayne say he leak it he could leak it but if Wayne say keep it to yourself he gon keep it to himself. So basically Wayne holding this shit back smh

    • Malik

      Yeah right

      • Khosta

        Its on 1 of the hip hop pages I think world star hip hop I saw it on twitter

    • Stefan David Tufis

      well of course he doesn’t want to leak his own album wtf,he wants to release it in normal ways

      • Khosta

        If he cared about us he’d do anything to let us hear it

        • Nukey

          Something

        • Stefan David Tufis

          man you know he cares about us,but he got kids,a fuck ton o them,a big ass house,he needs the money he would get from selling the C5,and that’s pretty natural to me

          • Porta-Potty Tunechi

            Fuck yeah, get what’s rightfully his

    • Clay Newman

      Im pretty sure that track that martin previewed is an old track. Wayne says “scoob in here wit me” in the beginning of the song. When is the last time you seen or heard of scoob wit wayne? cmon now listen closely.

  • Malik
    • Khosta

      What’s funny though cuh??

      • Malik

        U don’t get these memes in Africa?

        • Khosta

          That meme has no joke in it

          • Malik

            I take that as a no..

            • Khosta

              My phone full of hilarious memes nigga

              • Malik

                Prolly got old memes from when they first started knowing u

                • Khosta

                  I have latest

        • Moose Carter

          Lol

    • SUPA M

      Where we can bought the song?

  • Malik

    I be wanting to get on twitter but it just seem wack to me

  • P0W£R

    It’s straight.

  • Weezy da realist
    • Weezy da realist

      If only that was the real cover. I never believed in the C5 cover it was to simple and looked like wayne himself used photoshop

      • Khosta

        Talkin to yourself boy

        • Weezy da realist

          Lol u liked C5 cover over that one? U crazy. U.

          • Khosta

            Boy honestly Who’s the crazy 1

            • Weezy da realist

              You for not fucking with that cover. If “Funeral” dropped tonight and that was the cover wayne stans and fans and haters would go nuts over that. But cuz I said CV you said nah lol

              • WeezyLEF

                Your cover weak, C5’s original cover weak. As long as the music is great though, we good

      • Seattle@Home

        There’s a lot of people and opinions and videos saying the CV cover is the worst album cover of all time. It’s at least bottom 10

    • Malik

      Look like a demon lol

      • Weezy da realist

        Sometimes you gotta fight the devil with a demon( aka bird man and wayne) lol

  • Malik
    • Khosta

      Too many pics at once

    • Young Ricky

      Thats actually a drake line

      • Justin Cayz

        Lol…..

        • Young Ricky

          It is. I see a old drake interview where he’s freestyling in his old room and he says that same line. It’s like 2007 era

          • I’ve seen that interview… He says it totally different. Stop trying to find anyway possible to hate on wayne!

  • Weezy504

    The fuck is this soft ass shit. Ive been thinking Birdman not letting the album drop cuz it’s trash. He want Wayne to go back to that Carter, Carter II, D2, Blow, LFLS, N.O weezy sound. I don’t blame him. Better than this high pitched lady music.

    • Khosta

      It wasnt Birdman who didnt ket the album drop, its actually Wayne who’s holding it. He just wants his money

    • Khosta

      And there was no high pitch in c5

    • Kollegiate Kermit

      ok

    • DVeezy

      Lmao no..

  • Ye’

    That shit was kind of cringy honestly

    • Khosta

      Boy if you don’t

  • Sean

    Idk why everyone hating on Wayne’s high pitch voice it sounds dope depending on the beat pause and it’s very unique and distinct and if he’s spitting bars it shouldn’t matter how his voice sounds

    • YoungMulaBaby2.0

      Fr I like it cool verse I have a feeling I’m gonna replay this a lot when it drops

    • Khosta

      We aint tryna see our ears bleed boy

      • Sean

        I don’t like it when it’s way to high pitch I like it how his voice was on still got the rock type of high pitch pause

  • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

    It’s wack

    • Tuned #BWA #POP

      Tbh

      • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

        Man I hate when he on that high pitch shit and the bars wasn’t even all that

        • Khosta

          But this aint even high pitched bruh tf you talkin bout

  • Tuned #BWA #POP

    Drop a 4 po it muddy, outta space Kid Cudi

  • Caleb Kesler

    I figured we would start the year off with a tape or album not another feature lol💯😥😂

  • T-Chubbs

    Wheezy getting that cash money from ESPN n Fox Sports between First Take n Undisputed $$$$$

  • 🐐Wattblt🙏🏾

    Wayne chill out with the high pitch shit

    • YoungMulaBaby2.0
