Lil Wayne released 'Tha Carter V'

So Friday morning at 12:01 AM, expect plenty of Wayneheads to be shedding tears of joy. But none of them had the lyrical bite, rhythmic rumble and sonic tautness of Wayne's "Tha Carter" series.

Days before the 2014 release, Wayne had tweeted that Brian "Birdman" Williams, Cash Money label boss, had "refused to release the album".

"Listened to 30 seconds and Tha Carter V already album of the year, no challenge", wrote one user.

Fans have been waiting on the album since his 2013 project, "I Am Not a Human Being II".

Watch his announcement video below.




You can download Wayne's new album off of iTunes here. "Let It Fly" hears Wayne sharing bars with hip-hop phenom Travis Scott, before going it alone on "Can't Be Broken". Just one month later, Wayne admitted that he can do what he wants "at any time" during an interview with Wild Wayne of Q93, a New Orleans radio station. Numerous tweets focused on the fact that Wayne hasn't sounded this good since the last installment in his popular series, 2011's Tha Carter IV.

The album kicks off with his mother, Jacida Carter, leaving him an appreciative and emotional message about him providing for their family since his younger years.

Guess what? Today happens to be Lil Wayne's birthday as well. Perhaps that's the biggest surprise of all: The long saga of "The Carter V" actually has a happy ending. He says that the album will release on the evening of September 27, his birthday.

Will it be tonight?
