Lil Wayne kicks off the deluxe version of “Tha Carter V” with “Life Of Mr. Carter.”
Kicking off the 10-track addition to Tha Carter V is “Life Of Mr. Carter,” an introspective look into the mind of Lil Wayne. Through quick wordplay and metaphors, he describes the trials and tribulations of his life, from women to the legal issues he faces. Pay Cash and Bruce Almighty cook up the sinister production, perfectly fitting for Wayne’s stream-of-conscious flow. Conceptually, tt’s almost like a sequel to the Tha Carter III’s intro where Weezy looks back at all the hurdles he faced to claim the throne. But without a verse from Jay, of course.
What’s harder, life or Mr. Carter?
Tune in this bitch, let’s spike the Holy Water
Tryna stay grounded, my flights said no departures
Shit, what’s harder, murder or abortion? Woah
What’s harder, death or Mr. Carter?
Is it easier to play deaf or to listen harder?
