Tha Carter V Album Download
After a string of delays and legal issues, Lil Wayne’s long awaited album Tha Carter V is here. The Young Money founder officially announced the project’s release date earlier this week, explaining that its arrival coincides with his 36th birthday.
The project features XXXTENTACION, Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Mack Maine, Nivea, Reginae Carter, and Sosamann. It runs 23 tracks, totaling one hour and 23 minutes. Production is handled by Ben Billions, Swizz Beatz, Infamous, Johnny Yukon, and more.
Tha Carter V had a long and rocky road to release, dating back to Wayne’s initial announcement in 2012 when he revealed plans to release it the following year. After several pushbacks, Wayne claimed in December 2014 that Birdman was forcing him to delay the project again. Wayne then filed a $51 million lawsuit in January 2015 against Birdman and Cash Money over unpaid royalties, holding onto the purportedly completed album as a bargaining chip over the next few years. In 2016, former pharmaceutical company CEO Martin Shkreli claimed to have purchased the unreleased album from an unknown seller. It remained among $7.36 million worth of assets that Shkreli was ordered to forfeit in March as a result of his security fraud convictions.
In June 2018, Wayne and Birdman finally came to reported $10 million settlementthat ended the legal battle. As detailed in a recent Billboard cover story, each side reportedly retained their stakes in previous Young Money deals, but Wayne was apparently made whole. He now has full ownership of Young Money, with the imprint’s distribution deal with Republic remaining in place. As such, Tha Carter V is Wayne’s first project not released on Cash Money.
