The good news about Lil Wayne delaying the release of Tha Carter V? It allows Lil Wayne to toss out more than appealing verses on records the “current” Lil Wayne fan wouldn’t expect. “Gotti,” a track which flips The LOX’s chorus from the “Banned From TV” remix into a track sees Tune bend his voice and the anchor leg behind verses from Jadakiss and Styles P.

The animation isn’t there, his voice in this instance is subdued but the content is strong and memorable. You have to remember, Wayne has been doing this in the public eye for almost 20 years now or as he puts it, “since the fourth grade … went platinum in the tenth grade … back when Birdman had a fade.”

As far as that pesky release date, Wayne says Tha Carter V, along with “Gotti” will see a retail date of December 9th now. The reason? “I had too many songs,” Wayne said in a recent vlog update. So, Wayne’s presumed swan song will now come in two parts.
