The Original Version Of Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album To Be Released Officially This Friday [Video]

The Original Version Of Lil Wayne Tha Carter V Album To Be Released Officially This Friday

To celebrate Lil Wayne‘s 38th birthday and the 2-year anniversary of Tha Carter V, the original version of C5 will be released this Friday (September 25th) as a deluxe edition.

While presenting Tunechi with a 2020 McLaren 720S for an early birthday gift, Mack Maine revealed this news in the car as “Life Of Mr. Carter” played in the background.

However, we can hear one line on “Life Of Mr. Carter” that seems to have been changed (“Or to propose and get I don’t know… I don’t know” to “Or to break hearts and get your heart broken, I don’t know”), so I’m not too sure if there will be many changes from the actual OG version which leaked.

Are you happy with this news? I’m buzzing one of my favorite ever Weezy songs in “Scottie Pippen” aka “Scottie” is getting an official release!

Episode 6 of Lil Wayne‘s “Young Money Radio” show took place on May 29th on Apple Music and for this week’s guests, he had Dr. Anthony Fauci (Head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases), Dr. Dre, Kevin Hart, Tory Lanez, and Griselda’s Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine.

At the start of this week’s radio show, Tunechi paid tribute to George Floyd, who was murdered by cops in Minneapolis, and sent condolences to his family. Tune also revealed he will be releasing music videos for the deluxe edition of his Funeral album soon and as it is currently Mental Health Awareness Week, he shared a story of how he shot himself as a kid just so he could be heard as no one ever listened to him.

For interviews with his special guests, Weezy chatted to Dr. Fauci all about COVID-19, Larry Kramer, aids and more. He chopped it up with Dr. Dre about why he named his album 2001 when it was released in 1999, both being big fans of Anderson .Paak, how he balances his personal life and work, Kobe Bryant, and shares his thoughts on the horrible situation of George Floyd, which nearly made him not appear on “YM Radio” as he says it didn’t feel right.

Lil Wayne then spoke with Kevin Hart about the recent situation in Minneapolis, his new book “The Decision”, how he is doing after his car accident, and more. Before the episode came to an end, Wayne talked with a few of the features on his new Funeral deluxe album – Tory Lanez, Benny The Butcher and Conway The Machine.
