Lil Wayne - "Believe Me" (Feat. Drake)

Lil Wayne has debuted the first single from the upcoming Tha Carter V, which he says is his last solo album before retirement. On “Believe Me,” he teams up with fellow Young Money crew member Drake and borrows some of his laid-back style courtesy of restrained production from Boi-1da and Vinylz. Tha Carter 5 is expected to arrive some time this summer. Listen below.

  1. I think this is solid as hell.

  2. Weezy is always so well behaved on tracks he does with Drake. He stays on topic for more than a few bars – I like it.

  3. I think this is my favorite Wayne track at least since the No Ceilings era.

    • Some of the comments like this I’ve seen popping up are nuts. Y’all heard dude’s guest verses since IANAHB2? Dedication 5 (jacked beats but still?) His song on the YMCMB album? He’s had recent stuff that’s way better than this flat bullshit

    • not that I blame anyone for losing interest in Wayne especially after some of the bullshit he’s put out in the last two years, not to be THAT GUY like “ohhh you don’t know these random songs??” Just, not getting the love for this at all, and there’s a falloff narrative surrounding dude that’s not entirely accurate.

      • What’s not accurate about it? He was the most popular rapper in hip-hop (and by some metrics may still be) who’s critical acclaim has gone down the drain. TCII and Da Drought series was his unequivocal high point. TCIII signaled the beginning of his critical decline, while also finding him at his commercial peak. Since then, his album sales have not been able to reach those same heights, while critical opinion has diminished significantly.

        But yes, this most certainly is one of his highest points since No Ceilings.

        • C3 is only the beginning of his “decline” in dippy rap elitist circles. It’s way more cohesive/tight flows than any of his mixtapes leading up

          It’s not accurate cuz he’s had plenty of killer verses/songs/freestyles since No Ceilings, which ppl choose to ignore for whatever reason

        • actually fuck it C3 is his best album, hyping C2 as his best is some after-the-fact bullshit that ignores he was still improving at that point + it has more wack tracks than 3 (and lol “Drought series,” I have never heard anyone talk about the first two)

  4. What a fantastic track! This is certainly the best Lil Wayne verse of the year. I cannot wait to buy the physical cd single when it hits stores later this month!

  5. is this not ostensibly the same beat from “started from the bottom”?

  6. Wayne going full Isaiah Rashad “Shot You Down,” no?
