“They paint me as a villain / I just autograph the artwork.”

Lil Wayne continues to raise fans’ excitement for the forthcoming release of Tha Carter V this afternoon with the premiere of a new song titled “Krazy.”

2014 has been the year of the comeback for Lil Wayne.

Lil Wayne Confirms His Comeback Season Has Arrived With “D’usse”

You may choose to disagree, but I am part of the music world that believes the last several Lil Wayne releases were not on par with the rapper’s usual quality of work. There were a lot of good metaphors at play, but there were also a lot of forgettable verses and wasted guest appearances. I was actually ready to write Wayne off until I heard “Believe Me.” That song inspired me to revisit Weezy’s earlier work and I quickly remembered why we spent so many years calling him one of the greatest of all time. If you’ve been on the …

The record’s first single, “Believe Me,” found its way online late last night. It’s a subtle track as far as production is concerned, but it finds both Weezy and fellow YMCMB member Drake delivering aggressive flows that touch on everything from success …

Young Money CEO Lil Wayne said some time ago that Tha Carter V would be his final studio album, and in a new interview with MTV he has confirmed that remains his plan to this day. Still, Mr. Carter says he would be willing to consider working on another record if someone were willing to pay him $25-35 million for his work. He told MTV, “The way I’m working for this album. It seems like it would be impossible for me to work this hard again for anything else.”

Later in the same interview, which you can view below, Wayne …

Lil Wayne Reveals ‘Tha Carter V’ Release Date

After weeks of rumor and speculation, Lil Wayne has confirmed plans to release Tha Carter V later this year.

It has been a while since Lil Wayne graced us with a solo release, but May 5 Tha Carter V will allegedly see the light of day. I say allegedly because every single album or mixtape Wayne has released in the last five years has undergone one, if not several delays.

No music is available yet for Tha Carter V, but considering that Drake revealed the existence of the album earlier this month it’s likely we will see him contribute …
