Looks like Kobe’s forecasting was accurate– Carter V season is upon us. Tonight Lil Wayne delivered upon a week of hints, sharing the first official single off what he’s calling his last act, Tha Carter V, “Believe Me.” The song finds a revitalized and straight-shooting (no singing, no guitars, which will be a relief to many) Wayne trading verses with his protégée Drake, who does “One Direction numbers” himself now, over a menacing beat by Boi-1da and Vinylz. Tha Carter V out soon? Better to believe.
