Fans around the world have been waiting with bated breath for the release of Tha Carter V so you can imagine the mass hysteria that ensued upon the release of Lil Wayne’s newest album a few weeks ago. However, it seems not everyone is completely enamored with the new Weezy album as Charlamagne Tha God has recently come out against this new project in a recent episode of the Breakfast Club.
Charlamagne Tha God is a writer and has a book titled “Black Privilege” which ranked sixth in the New York Times of bestselling hardback nonfiction on May 7 2017. Another book Charlamagne Tha God has written is titled “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me”.
During this syndicated radio show, he mocked Wayne’s efforts and pointed out that these new tracks are rather subpar. In particular, he disparaged the song, Let It Fly, which also features fellow rapper, Travis Scott. However, since then, he has changed his tune after listening to the tracks in full.
In a recent Instagram post, Charlamagne Tha God noted that, upon listening to the entire album, Charlamagne now perceives it to be halfway decent. Of course, he did note that none of this will have any bearing on his status as a rapper considering he’s already peaked at the top of the rap industry.
As such, he doesn’t believe this new project will make him any more famous than he already is. In closing, he mentioned that this is merely his opinion and he’s not interested in arguing with anyone who may disagree with him. Tha Carter V was a project almost ten years in the making and Lil Wayne began recording the music for this new album in 2012. See Related Link for additional information.
Weezy had initially intended to retire following the release of this latest project in order to spend more time with his family but he has since decided to continue his career. The exact reason for this remains unknown to this day. The album is currently peaking at the top of the Billboard 200 charts and has now sold over 480,000 copies.
