Believe Me (ft. Drake)
After plenty of teasers sprinkled throughout the week, the preparations for Tha Carter V are finally underway . Billed as Lil Wayne‘s final solo project, the New Orleans veteran had recently been building anticipation for the lead single, thanks to some unconventional promo from Kobe Bryant and Floyd Mayweather. Recruiting his number one running mate, Drake, for the assist on this one, “Believe Me” features the two emcees trading bars over an ominous instrumental by Boi-1da and Vinylz that’ll shake you to your very core. As they switch up their flows to coincide with a shift in the tempo midway through, “Believe Me” when I say that Weezy sounds hungrier than he has in recent memory. We won’t say he’s in classic mixtape form just yet, but we’d like to think his relative dormancy lately indicates that he’s bringing a new level of focus to this album.
Stream the new track above, and stay tuned for more information on Tha Carter V, including its new release date.
