In a sneak peek of this episode, Lil Wayne and DJ Khaled can be seen reminiscing on Betty‘s hit back in 1974 called “Tonight Is The Night“.

“There’s eras of the song in my life, the first is being in the backseat of a car. Your mom’s singing it and you’re singing it right along with her. The second era is you’re riding in that car alone and now you finding those words meaning something totally different than what they meant when you were sitting in that backseat.”

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?

T-Raww mentioned he has never been around a superstar until Wayne signed him as an artist to Young Money, he very much looks up to Tunechi, how Tune is committed to who he is, his message and lyrics, and how he was happy he got “Mixtape Weezy” on his “On Me” song.

Also during their conversation, Tyga recalled Weezy doing a show at a music venue that was 500 capacity and it being full to where people were standing on top of each other, to then performing at arenas a couple of months later. You can check it all out after the jump below. Enjoy!
