Lil Wayne

A couple of weeks ago, Lil Wayne let the world hear his Drake collaboration “Believe Me,” which might be the first track from his long-in-the-works album Tha Carter V. And now he’s followed it up with “D’Usse,” a frantic-but-regal brag-rap bugout that at least exists in the same universe as his classic material. The beat, from producer Lee Majors, is the sort of old-school soul-sampling banger that Wayne would’ve laced around 2005. Wayne’s free-associative I-am-the-best approach doesn’t exactly yield a ton of quotables (“How many fish did Hootie blow? I don’t know”), but it’s still a lot of fun. Listen below.

Wayne says that Tha Carter V will be the last solo album he’ll release before retirement. It doesn’t have a release date yet.

  1. it’s not great but it’s a lot better than garbage like Mirror

  2. Wayne’s improvement since IANAHB2 is one of the less-discussed aspects of his career as of late & people are finally starting to catch on

  3. I wanted to make a joke that the song title should be pronounced “doozy” but this is pretty solid so I won’t.

  4. I really enjoyed this.

    Though, Carter VI gonna be much better than Carter V

    Thugga gonna own 2014
