First, Drake made the surprise announcement that Lil Wayne‘s much-anticipated Tha Carter V will be released on May 5, 2014 and now, an anonymous attendee of Engineer Mike B’s private listening session has leaked what looks to be the album’s track list.
According to a photo that was sent to Rap-Up, the fifth installment of Weezy’s signature LP series will feature 12 tracks, with features from Kanye West, Future, J. Cole, Game, Nas and more.
Drizzy and Cash Money’s newest signee Young Thug will feature on a track called “They Ain’t With Us,” while The Weeknd and Future will lend their talents to a song titled “Not a Chance.” According to the insider, Meek Mill, Nas and Kanye West bring lyrical heat to songs called “Kill ‘Em,” “Forty” and “No Answers,” respectively.
Reportedly, Future Vandross drops a head-nodding hook on “Flown” (“I know you flown, and I know you down to fly, down to fly, down to fly”), while Birdman helps the YMCMB head honcho thank his fans for their unyielding support throughout the years on the outro, “The End.”
“Wayne really pulls out all the stops for his final album,” the insider told Rap-Up. “The features are on point.”
Fans should take the list with a grain of salt, though, because Wayne’s proclivity for creating records in the studio could warrant numerous changes before the album drops this spring.
A rep for Lil Wayne had not responded to MTV News’ request for confirmation by press time.
