Everything You Need To Know About The Original Version Of Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album After The Leak

Everything You Need To Know About The Original Version Of Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album After The Leak

A couple of days ago, a lot of the songs (20 in total) from Lil Wayne‘s original Tha Carter V album surfaced online. I was not going to make an article about this, but too many people are hitting me up asking about it, so I’ve decided to do what I did when the Velvet Sessions project leaked online.

Due to copyright laws, I cannot post the tracks on this website, but for those who have heard the music, I will list what has changed on each record. If you recall back to 2014, CV was originally due to drop back then, but with the long lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records, Wayne ended up re-recording the album and releasing it in 2018.

The full versions of “Mute” featuring a dope verse from Big Sean and “No Brainer” featuring a dope verse from Flow are also included in this new leak. I always tell people that Tunechi‘s best music in my personal opinion seems to be more his leaked music over official releases and hearing songs like “Life Of Mr. Carter“, “Scottie Pippen” and the hilarious “Form Good” confirms this statement even more for me.

You can check out exactly which tracks leaked from the original Tha Carter 5 project below! From the tentative tracklist we received in 2014, this now just leaves “Start This Shit Off Right” with Christina Milian and Mannie Fresh, “She Said Better Get ‘Em“, “Grindin” with Jeezy and Young Thug, “Brad Pitt” with B.o.B, “Mano Y Mano” with Gudda Gudda, and “Murda” with Flow as unreleased. If you have heard the OG C5 album, how did you like it and did you prefer it more than the official version we got nearly a year ago?

Lasanna “ACE” Harris Speaks On Co-Producing Lil Wayne’s “Famous” Off “Tha Carter V” & Wayne’s Influence In Hip-Hop

Lasanna ACE Harris Speaks On Co-Producing Lil Wayne Famous Off Tha Carter V & Wayne Influence In Hip Hop

Lasanna “ACE” Harris recently chopped it up with DJ Booth about co-producing Lil Wayne‘s “Famous” song featuring his daughter Reginae Carter off Tha Carter V and how influential Wayne is in hip-hop.

“Wayne is one of the most influential artists in hip-hop, period, and has birthed so many offspring.”

The producer talked about how he worked on the “timeless” track with Sham “Sak Pase” Joseph and Sam Bruno around the same time that they was working on beats for Nicki Minaj and her The Pinkprint album.

A week after they had mastered “Famous” back in 2014, Tunechi and Birdman had their public fall out, which went on to last over 4 years and left him being very disappointed thinking that the record will never see the light of day.

ACE then revealed he got an e-mail of out of blue from Weezy‘s team a week before the album was due to be released and explained how it feels “to be a part of a historical moment in hip-hop”. You can read everything he said below!
