Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V was supposed to come out later this year, but now it’s been delayed indefinitely, which is crazy. Wayne is one of the biggest stars in rap, and if he can’t get a firm release date, should we just ball up the whole music business and throw it away? But Wayne continues to rap very well pretty consistently. Yesterday, he was attempting to lay claim to Nicki Minaj’s body on Nicki’s own “Only,” and that was gross. But I’ll take Wayne reciting his own personal mythology while Yonkers hardhead fixtures Jadakiss and Styles P trade off lines. “Gotti,” Wayne’s new single, has all that, and it’s a bit of a gothic banger to boot. Listen below.
Tha Carter V will presumably come out some time soonish, I guess, who knows.
