The Carter V by Lil Wayne (7.5/10)

Lil Wayne has finally delivered the much delayed release to fans awaiting the fifth and final installment of The Carter series. Though his lyrics stay sharper than a double-edged sword and production is reasonable, Wayne again proves he’s one of the greatest rappers of all time. Songs like “Don’t Cry,” “Let It Fly,” “Can’t Be Broken” and “Mona Lisa” allow the album to shine, while boring tracks like “Dark Side of the Moon” and “What About Me” remain fillers for enthusiasts to skip over. Overall, The Carter V is solid, and if it were condensed to at least half as many tracks, it would be much more memorable.

Rating: 7.5/10
