Lil Wayne is leaking again, and fans are scrambling to get their hands on his old music.
On Friday, a leaked version of Lil Wayne‘s highly sought after album, Tha Carter V, surfaced online sending his fans into a frenzy. Weezy dropped the album, C5, in September last year, but a lot of the songs were recorded in the months leading up to the release of the project, while some others were remastered. The original version of the iconic body of work might’ve been recorded over five years ago, and there were plenty collaborations that were highly anticipated from back then that didn’t make the tracklist for the final release.
That original version of Tha Carter V is currently sitting somewhere online, and some fans might’ve already listened to it or get a copy of it. We won’t share any details about where you can get it, but it’s out there making the rounds on the net if Weezy’s lawyers haven’t already moved to wipe it clean. HHNM was one of the first sites to report on the leak, and then Lil Wayne’s fans started scrambling on social media in an attempt to find it.
The original version of Tha Carter V reportedly contains twenty songs with the vast majority of them not yet released. There are songs like “No Brainer,” “Life of Mr. Carter,” and the much-rumored “Scottie Pippen” joint are reportedly to be on the tracklist for the original version of the album.
Lil Wayne has yet to comment on the potential leak, but here are some of what fans have been saying on Twitter.
How did the original version of The Carter V just leak, and why is it better than the retail version?
This is deja vu from 2007 when the original version of The Carter III leaked. That version was also infinitely better than the retail we got.

and I’ve listened to more wayne than 99 percent of kids on this app. from then to now. the carter 3 is a decent album but it’s not as great as his other shit. sometimes I wonder how different his career would be if Cash Money actually managed it and handled leaks properly
