      • David D

        cryin

    • Khosta

      the only track Young Thug has ever killed is “See You” from that Rich Gang Mixtape

      • Tune

        Hell naw he killed that whole tape

      • David D

        u might want to lsiten to that mixtape again, he went in on every song

    • YoungJT1092

      Cant front I am anticipating a Gudda feature, its gonna be on some Heat, Gunwalk, Demolition flow. Guaranteed hard shit.

  • Okay

    That’s great but now please update on the c5 album

  • Fidel Z

  • e dog

    • Tez

      iTunes tomorrow

    • TRUKFIT

      MAYBE WEEZY WEDNESDAYS

      • David D

        that done ended

    • Ye’

      Friday is what I heard

      • Patrick H

        I heard that too -_-

  • weeeezzyy

    John wall a real nigga

  • Malik

    Still looking for the meaning to what Wayne meant when you says, “blood gang take the “B” out/off behavior my nigga.”

    • TRUKFIT

      ITS JUST WORDPLAY

      BEHAVIOR MEANS YOURE GOOD OR DOING SOMETHING GOOD

      BLOOD GANG ARE KNOWN FOR BEING…HOW DO I SAY THIS….NOT GOOD LOL

      AND THEY SAY THE WORD ‘B’ OR THROW UP THE ‘B’ FOR EVERYTHING

      SO ITS JUST WORDPLAY

      • Amazu Ukoh

        Damn my nigga you confidently got no clue what you talking bout lol

      • Khosta

        you shouldn’t have tried explaining brah what you said makes no sense, and none of y’all are helping. He said take the B out Behavior, so it’ll be Ehavior, we wana know what Ehavior means.. that’s why we don’t get it

        • Prince_Academics

          What he saying is Take the B off blood not behavior, that’s why people are confused, so he saying lewd behavior without just outwardly saying it, Blood gang take the B off, then add the word behavior, look at it like that, lewd behavior

          • Khosta

            and what does “lewd” mean???

      • YoungJT1092

        I sorta see what he means, ya’ll slow, either way, its undoubtedly a fascinating bar…wont you agree? Good shit Wayne, lol

    • Zay

      “I’m Brazy my nigga, blood gang take the b off behavior my nigga”

    • Amazu Ukoh

      It is a double entendre … It’s first meaning it’s .. “Blood gang take the b out” taking the B out blood makes “lood” or what Wayne means “lewd” so lewd behavior (gang Beahavoir)

      The second meaning is “blood gang take the b out Behavoir my nigga” meaning Wayne & his blood are so misbehaved that they can render the word “Behavoir” unrecognizable by taking the b out

      My bad if I’m unclear I’m high as fuck

      • THEFIREMANB1TCH

        Thats like exactly what rapegenius says lol

    • yadig

      just a thought…if u take b out of behave u can call it misbehave (cuz the b’s missin), so maybe misbehavior is what bloods are know for..just speculating

    • THEFIREMANB1TCH

      Heres what rap genius says..

    • Nathaniel Diaz

      Think he trynna say take the b out blood.. Lood /lewd behavior

    • Griffey914

      Are you guys just stupid or still in high school or something? “B’s” is short for bloods….the word play is taking the Be out behavior to signify bloods are disobedient/unlawful

  • Waynedagoat

    Im still pissed at how wak gotti was i mean nigggga u push the album bak which i agreed with then u gimi a song i cant listin to more then 3 times smfh

    • TRUKFIT

      WTF IM STILL PLAYING THAT SONG

      ITS REAL HIPHOP

      • Skenny

        It’s hip hop at it’s realest state
        Real niggas don’t appreciate

    • Giraffe Boy

      gotti is dope
      i just dont understand why they let the hype for c5 go back down

    • Patrick H

      You need to appreciate Gotti more.

    • CV

      Gotti is dope but its ok I understand……only real niggas fuck wit it

    • Khosta

      Gottie was dope brah!

  • TRUKFIT

    JOHN WALL TRYNA GET ON THAT CARTER V ALBUM LOL

    • Bang

      “IM BALLLINNNN LIKE IM WALL BITCH”

  • Giraffe Boy

    i still havent forgot how they pushed back c5 last minute and didn’t give a professional announcement until after october 28
    thats why i wont be buying the album
    but i also cant understand how they let the hype go back down to 0 again
    thats why i dont think it will drop on december 9

    • WeezyDaGOAT

      Same shit, top comment again

      • Khosta

        lmao they’re stupid for upvoting this shit

        • THEFIREMANB1TCH

          On some phones it automatically upvotes when u try to view image nd most ppl just leave it as it is

    • THEFIREMANB1TCH

      Hype will go up like crazy this week i bet with that radio hit

  • real shit

    Dam after the long update drought john wall saying wayne his favorite rapper the news? Smfh respect to him for that but we like 4 weeks away from c5 so a tracklist, a new single or any c5 news would be greatly appreciated have a nice day my good sir

    • WeezyDaGOAT

      He cant give us c5 news if there’s isnt any new news about it

      • real shit

        Sarcasm bruh

  • Jafar

    Hopefully we get a new single tonight or tomorrow.
    29 days left ’till we finally get CARTER 5, folks!

    • Patrick H

      Or until they push it back lol.

      • Jafar

        Hopefully not again, haha.

      • Skenny

        Then Lil Wayne should drop a mixtape titled “Sorry For The Fuck Up”

      • THEFIREMANB1TCH

        That would be so fuckedd if they did..

  • Patrick H

    I think Wayne should of dropped a mixtape by now just to keep us fans patient.

  • don mojito

    Hum Nicki is consistency promoting her album with singles and stuff, she also forced too much which is kinda funny she dont let the music speak for herself, But wayne didn’t have a BIG SINGLE OUT yet like (no worries, raf, love me) which is weird because he always have at least 4 singles. but he pushed C5 back for a reason so i trust his plan.

  • Strictly crip

    Wayne needs to do a remix to den loaf try me

  • 954AUTHENTIC

    no one savors shit anymore. always gotta be on to the next shit… #slowdown

    — retOne TDE (@retOne) November 8, 2014

    Lol.Tru but Wayne givs u quantity & quality so we str8.sorry tde fans

  • Guest

    Dej loaf is a woman though.

    • Foday Spacejams Donzo

      Theirs a comma

  • Wayniac

    I have no idea how people can think that rappers like Future Young Thug fucking Euro and future and shit are actually good collabs for CARTER FIVE!!! Shits sad. This needs to be a Jay Z Kendrick Nas and Eminem featured album. The Dream, Hitboy, Yeezy, Game!!, Jay rock, lil Boosie. Wayne needs this shit to be epic and it it’s a bunch of swag pack rappers it’s gunna be a flop. Period.

    • Don_Hooper19

      Agreed

    • Khosta

      yoh nigga Euro is as good as the heavy weights. I agreed untill you counted Euro along with Thug n future

      • Ye’

        Euro is not with the heavyweights at all

    • YmCmBxOvOxOfWgKtA

      So what you are saying is features make or break an album? Go by a dj drama album then.. This is Carter 5, the only concern is what Wayne brings, not the features.
      But speaking on what you said.. Euro and Future aren’t on the album and Kendrick is you dumbass

    • Foday Spacejams Donzo

      Wait wait when the fuck did we start telling Wayne the way he should make his album

  • e dog

    Ima go crazy

  • Khosta

    Everybody’s favourite rapper is Lil Wayne

    • THEFIREMANB1TCH

      Except pusha t lol

      • Tune Up ©

        Pusha T a big fan on the low.

        • THEFIREMANB1TCH

          ForreAl

  • Weezy

    I’m a dboy
    Classic hit

    • David D

      birdman with a dope verse too

  • YoungJT1092

    I feel like the radio banger is coming this week….

    • Khosta

      why the fuck do y’all want a radio banger???????? like seriously I hate it when someone says that. I only want him to drop chilled songs that are classics and not club songs like lollipop, love me, no worries. Cuz club songs don’t make an album solid, they make it weaker

      • triggacity_813

        Cause man I wanna see Wayne takeover the radios again

        • e dog

          +1

      • e dog

        -1

        • Khosta

          what ever

          • Rachel Aileen Freeman

            Allrightie.

      • Yo

        Cause it promtoes the album making people want to see what the album will be about also adds sales to the album and radio songs are for a wide range audience and are usually bangers

      • Ye’

        They make it sell

      • Foday Spacejams Donzo

        Nigga are u blind or some shit you see the state where hip hop is we got niggas like bobby and thugga on top of the game without club hits only those hood rats will be the album and that’s not what they want they want it to sell well with purchases from all ethnicities

        • Khosta

          I don’t care about selling or anything, I want Wayne to be respected in rap again

      • YoungJT1092

        So a Mannie Fresh, Justin Timberlake/Bieber, Kendrick, or Big Sean radio banger wont get played in the club? Nigga you krazy!

      • Weezy

        Nigga u on crack

  • Linoh Locc

    This is wen niggas called diddy Puff sitting up letting biggie bump

    • Amazu Ukoh

      It’s “this when niggas called Diddy “puff” letting biggie bump, while I’m sitting up in that big body”

      • Weezy

        I could show u a dead body

  • Khosta

    What does wayne mean when he says the following?
    Dead Presidents
    Double R

    • triggacity_813

      Ronald Regan

      • Khosta

        but he says “double R I’m real relaxed” sometimes “double a Rebel With a Reason” why Double R ??? I mean he could say “double P, Play pussy” why Double R???

    • Amazu Ukoh

      Dead presidents is money …notice who is on money .. Dead presidents

    • blahhh

      Rolls Royce/Ronald Regan

  • Ali

    You lot got your CV shirt

    • Patrick H

      That’s cool.

      • Ali

        Delivery charges are killer to the uk tho man

    • polt

      Big ass shirt. Gtfoh

      • Ali

        I’m actually quit tall so the shirt fits me perfect.

    • Khosta

      dope

      • Ali

        Thanks bro

  • Khalil Moody

  • THEFIREMANB1TCH

    “I’m real as fuck
    I pull that thing and hit em up
    That bullet travel hit a gut
    Then hit ya fitted up
    Hit ya whole city up
    Hit ya while ya laying down
    Shots leave ya sittin up”

    • Khosta

      It’s Young Money

  • Amazu Ukoh

    Real niggas know that Gotti is a fucking amazing song , the concept of LOX was crazy plus was promo on their side for the single they released shortly after

    But Gotti proves that Wayne can story tell when he feels like it

    I like the Gotti, “Moment” type songs in which Wayne reminds us of how long he’s been in the game

    • hi

      Define a real nigga plz

      • THEFIREMANB1TCH

        If u need a definition then u obviously aint one haha

      • Weezybabybest

        Ill mind of hopsin 5.5

    • Skenny

      That’s just the perfect description of Gotti
      Real nigga

    • Kid Buu

      It goes hard but Gotti wasn’t story telling tho the song was about catching bodies

    • David D

      cosign

  • Ye’

    Eminem needs to be on this album they work so well together the song would promote itself

    • THEFIREMANB1TCH

      Nah em is washed up nowdays

      • Ye’

        You gotta be the only one who thinks so because he had the highest selling rap album last year

        • THEFIREMANB1TCH

          Cuz he has millions of stans who are obsessed with him nd call him a rap god when the reason ppl think hes so good is cuz hes white nd he’s better than most rappers out.. But if he was black he wouldnt be a rapgod.. I do think hes one of the best to ever do it but his music nowdays is wackasfuck imo

        • THEFIREMANB1TCH

          I wouldn’t mind a feat I guess cuz the feats i seen he has, eminem is better than them..

        • jjtop

          He’s white duhh! That album was ass!

          • Ye’

            Man stfu I hate when people say that, if it wasn’t for white people lil wayne wouldn’t have sold nearly as much either

        • Khosta

          he’s washed up

  • THEFIREMANB1TCH

    Anyone think waynes gonna be on tygas album?

  • Nijee

    My Prediction= C5 Single Drop Before Thanksgiving

    • Anonymous

      It will be Holy

  • Wayne

    Cv going to be a big selling flop 90k first week and that is being a bit much

    • Kid Buu

      I think it will do at least somewhere around 500k first week

      • e dog

        1 mill

        • Wayne

          I don’t think so because the day cv was going to drop 28th there was I hype on any other site but this and you can see it was not been trending on an social media I will say 100k-200k just cause of how it is promoted not saying it will be a flop album just a selling flop in my opinion

          • e dog

            1 milli

          • YoitsChico

            there wasn’t hype for it because he never planned on releasing it on that date, there were no singles or anything out, now he has a single coming out and it gunna pop, then C5 will sell a milli first week easily

    • triggacity_813

      At least 300k

    • S_ Alhaji

      Over a milli. This nigga coming all out this time forreal

    what i think…..wayne re-did outstanding for c4 calling it president carter and wayne tweeted amilli amilli there is a possiblity he re-edited the milli sample and did another song for c5 with that sample…its a possiblity for the publicity it would be a dope thing to do

    • Anonymous

      Wow just checked into this ↑

      Very nice. The beats r very similar just diff tones.

      And a milli’s re-edited was that 6’7′

      So he was redoin c3 stuf for C4

      So he may be doin like lil remixes of C4 stuf on C5

      Life of Mr. carter = president xarter/ nightmares of the bottom
