Kanye West Predicts Lil Wayne's "Tha Carter V" Will Outsell "Yandhi"

Kanye West Predicts Lil Wayne's

This latest album feels like a major moment in Lil Wayne's career, much like LeBron's decision to sign with the Lakers could be a defining moment in his career. "With this album - I always give y'all all of me - but with this album I'm giving you more than me", Wayne said in an announcement video that was released earlier this week. The party, nicknamed "Wayne's World", featured numerous rapper's favorite things.... traditional New Orleans food (as catered by Trap Kitchen), candy and marihuana bar while a skate ramp outside played host to tricks and ollies from skateboarders all night. Highsnobiety got a sneak peek at Preston's airbrushed white T-shirt, featuring a graphic of a youthful Lil Wayne inhaling a joint.

Over a year later, in an interview with Hot 97, Birdman denied delaying Lil Wayne's new album, claiming that he has a lot of money invested in it that he wanted to get back too. Though Wayne had previously passed the incident off as an accident, it was revealed, in a recent Billboard profile, that the recent deaths of Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade, led him to open up about it.

Wayne has also added a handy countdown to the album on his website which will run until Tha Carter V's release date on 28 September. To learn how to stream and download Tha Carter V, be sure to check out the link below.

"We're releasing Yandhi Saturday night", Kanye tweeted.

Check out the album below and let The Source know what is your favorite of the 23 tracks. Perhaps that's the biggest surprise of all: The long saga of "The Carter V" actually has a happy ending.

Another one of Reginae's follower posted 'Happy birthday to my all time fav rap Dwayne carter wishing you many more to come the wait is over C5'.
