Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album Goes Gold + An Inside Look At The Physical Copy

Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album Goes Gold + An Inside Look At The Physical Copy

In less than 2 weeks of being released, Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V album has reached Gold status.

This means that Weezy‘s latest project has been streamed and purchased over 500,000 times since it was released at midnight on September 27th.

With the physical copies of C5 also being sold in stores now, I am sure it will not be long at all until the album is certified Platinum! Talking about the physical copies, you can actually get a look at what they look like below, courtesy of Jimmy Mays!

Lil Wayne Talks “Tha Carter V”, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne Talks Tha Carter V, Attempting Suicide, Retirement, Young Money & More In Billboard 2018 Fall Issue

Lil Wayne graces the front cover of Billboard‘s Fall issue, which will be available on newsstands September 15th.

For his cover story, Weezy spoke on a lot of things including Tha Carter V, his children, tweeting, 2 Chainz’ wedding, seizures, features, Nicki Minaj, suicide, retirement, greatness, Drake, and more.

One interesting part from the story is that they reveal the outro on Tunechi‘s C5 album will be about attempting suicide and it will sample British R&B singer Sampha’s “Indecision” song:

“When he was 12, Wayne came across a gun in his mother’s house and shot himself in the chest, just missing his heart. In the past, he has called this an accident. But on the new verse he plays, Wayne admits this was a suicide attempt, undertaken after his mother told him he would no longer be allowed to rap. The track, which samples British R&B singer Sampha’s brooding but hopeful 2013 song ‘Indecision’ and will be the album’s outro, was on the original album tracklist, but Wayne added new lyrics this summer, following the suicides of designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain.’

Also during their conversation, we get confirmation that Young Money Entertainment now solely belongs to Tune, but their distribution deal with Republic Records remains in place. You can check out some excerpts from the interview and pics from the photo shoot below!
