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!

On episode 110 of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” series, Joe Budden shared his thoughts on Lil Wayne when asked about his opinion on the recent situation with Wayne ending his concert in Idaho early after someone threw a bottle of water at him.

Before talking about how Tunechi handled the situation, Joe had plenty of praise for Tune by calling him “the GOAT”, “the greatest”, “a megastar”, and more. He also added a suggestion to how he might be able to leave Birdman and that’s by changing his stage name similar to how Prince did when he wanted to leave his record label.

Lil Wayne Will Release Tha Carter IV On August 28th x Rushed To Hospital After Skateboarding Accident

Lil Wayne will make his Tha Carter IV album available for purchase digitally a few hours before Monday, August 29th, meaning you will be able to buy the album on iTunes on Sunday, August 28th! Weezy‘s plan is to do an amazing live performance on MTV’s Video Music Awards, then release the album digitally so fans will be able to go and purchase C4 straight after he performs at the VMAs. Tunechi is nominated for 2 VMA awards, and the show is scheduled to air live on August 28th at the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. Check out what Wayne told Billboard today in a little statement below:

“I am extremely excited to be the first artist to utilize such an amazing idea. I hope that I can open the door for others.”

Earlier this morning, Lil Wayne was rushed to hospital after a bad fall on his skateboard at a skatepark in St. Louis resulting in Weezy needing 9 stitches. The good news is that Wayne is doing fine and has been released from hospital, but he does have a bad gash on his left eye that should heal up in a few days.
