Looks like we know what Wayne does on his “Off Day”, ha! You’ll catch the drift as Lil Wayne continues in sometimes graphic detail below. It’s classic Wayne pushing the envelope with shock value, but that’s not always the Wayne I gravitate towards. A rapper named Flow earns the feature for this preview of Carter V Pt. 1 — set for a December 9th release. Produced by X-Fyle.
#CarterVSeason will officially run all the way through summer and into the fall as Weezy unveils Tha Carter V artwork and release date today. Seems like the perfect amount of time to let the Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour ride out and the buzz on the current singles and more to keep rising.
That’s a great segue into a Drake vs. Lil Wayne Tour update — the two brought out 50 Cent in Hartford last night, who performed his international #1 hit “In Da Club” for ole times sake.
Finally, in his weekly vlog, Wayne adds his name to the list of people doing the ice bucket challenge you’ve undoubtedly seen on Facebook. Great stuff.
#CarterVSeason continues with the new video to “Krazy”, creatively inspired by the movie ‘One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest’. Weezy is rhyming from a straitjacket, fittingly, and also rocks the flyest white mental patient uniform (that’s quite fitting). My wordplay aside, don’t sleep on Wayne’s with “Krazy” as Carter V‘s “A Milli” above.

Just in time for the start of the Drake vs. Lil Wayne tour comes “Grindin'” — the second Lil Wayne Drake collab off the forthcoming Carter V. When you think of “Grindin'” you definitely think of the bangin’ Clipse classic, but time will tell if you’ll also think of this instant smash from 2 of today’s hottest rappers.
Naturally, this is an anthem for the hard work that I think got better as it went along. Wayne borrows the Migos flow, which I’m lukewarm about in general, and puts down some nice lines throughout. Drake’s verse concludes the record and he kills it over the bumpin’ beat from Boi-1da & Vinylz with his usual, refreshingly honest perspective. Plus, Drizzy has a few lines that may become iconic due to the motivating parallels:
N****az wrong everyday
Carter V continues to shape up as the album of the summer.
Lil Wayne‘s latest preview of his hotly anticipated return of the Carter series is another vintage example of Weezy spazzing, and fits right in with “D’USSE” and “Believe Me” f/ Drake. I can’t help but chuckle at a handful of these rhyming, random references. Wayne goes especially hard from the start and then saves his longest stretch after the 3 minute mark. While it won’t last to me sonically, I really appreciate the effort and increasing substance that Wayne puts out here on “Krazy”. Now just stay tuned for that Carter V release date.
