Show Nivea the money.
The Carter V had a number of notable features including Travis Scott, Kendrick Lamar, and Nicki Minaj. One of the most surprising features was from Wayne’s ex, Nivea, on “Dope New Gospel.” The track was allegedly expected to feature Drake, but of course, that did not happen. According to Tunechi, his verse was not able to clear before the release of the album. Nivea stopped by the Breakfast Club recently to speak on her contributions to Carter V.
According to Nivea, the song was written a year prior to the album’s announcement for release.
“We did that song a year ago,” said Nivea. “I wrote the hook and sent it back and he said ‘I love it!'”
After sending the song back to Weezy, Nivea claims she did not hear any word about it, until a month before the Carter V release. When Wayne called to inform Nivea that she had made the album, she was ecstatic. Although she has yet to be paid for the feature, she says there is no malice between herself and Wayne.
Nivea and Wayne were engaged twice, but called off the engagement both times. The “Don’t Mess with My Man” artist gave birth to their son, Neal Carter in 2009. Nivea says Weezy has never missed child support and has always taken care of her and their son. Hopefully, Wayne is not following in the footsteps of Birdman’s history of not paying people. As a result, she knows that she will receive compensation for her feature very soon.
Currently, Lil Wayne holds 19 of the 50 tracks spots on the Billboard’s Streaming Song chart. In addition, 22 songs debut on the Billboard Hot 100 chart upon its release.

All yesterday [September 20] fans anticipated Tha Carter V being released at midnight. Although there was never any official announcement from Lil Wayne himself, fans were adamant about such a notion — so much so that they found themselves highly disappointed in Lil Wayne when the album didn’t drop.
But here’s the catch. Floyd Mayweather took to Instagram posting the album cover art with the caption #21. James Harden then took to Instagram to post the album cover art with the caption #13. Odell Beckham Jr. posted the album cover art on his Insta-story, while Reginae Carter posted the album cover art with the caption #C5. All but Reginae posted and deleted leaving everyone to wonder if Carter V was set to be released at midnight on September 21st but some unforeseen obstacles postponed the release or if Carter V was ever even going to be released on that date.
According to TMZ, a source close to Wayne explained, “the hype surrounding September 21 as the release date for Carter V was all generated by pure speculation that somehow morphed into conspiracies. Fact is … all Young Money did was tease the cover and NEVER once mentioned an album release date.”

Over the last couple of weeks, we have seen a number of teases for Lil Wayne’s long-awaited album, Carter V. After winning his lawsuit to be released under Cash Money earlier this year, the “Lollipop” artist became the majority owner of Young Money under Universal. This was long overdue. The 35-year-old rapper was responsible for recruiting the Young Money crew that included Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga. These artists have all branched off to amazing success stories under the Young Money flagship.
Last week, it was reported that Carter V would be released today, but as of now, there is no album. Despite its delay, Weezy has gotten support from not only his daughter but friends as well. Digital media extraordinaire, Karen Civil, noticed Floyd Mayweather, Odell Beckham Jr., and James Harden posting the roman numeral “V” in support to fuel the album’s anticipation.
Reginae did the same on Thursday night, leading many to believe the release was near.
It is clear that no one when the Carter V will be released. Everyone knows that Weezy wants his fans to hear it. With everything he has been through over the past 4 years, it is only right to drop the album.
Earlier this week, it was announced that Tunechi will be honored with the “I Am Hip Hop” Award at this year’s, BET Hip Hop Awards. We’ll continue to keep a close watch for clues on the Carter V‘s release.
