Lil Wayne Tha Carter V

Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is doing big numbers in record time. The hip-hop superstar’s new Tha Carter V album is reportedly certified gold.

On Saturday, Young Money president Mack Maine went to Instagram to announce Wayne’s major retail achievement.

Last week, Chicago’s Chance The Rapper geeked out over Wayne’s new album.

“I’m about to have my own private listening session to C5. I just gotta say, man, thank-you Lil Wayne ’cause beyond the fact you got me my first ever number one record, first ever Grammy, you taught me so much sh*t from far away. I just want to say thank-you for dropping that sh*t. Thank-you for reclaiming your sh*t and man, I’m ready to hear that sh*t yo. I had to kick everyone out the d*mn studio so I could really take this sh*t in.”

To celebrate his new release, Weezy released a limited edition line of Carter V-inspired apparel.

Lil Wayne has announced the final collaborative merch item around his latest album Tha Carter V. Weezy has partnered with the Advisory Board Crystals brand and Wikipedia for a new long-sleeve shirt that features various screen-printed graphics in a “visual representation” of his Wikipedia page. (The collaboration isn’t apropos of nothing: In the announcement video for Tha Carter V, Wayne proclaimed, “Wiki me bish.”) Advisory Board Crystals is set to donate a portion of their profits to the Wikimedia Foundation.
