Tha Carter IV has finally arrived, and after a rocked-out VMA performance finale on Sunday night, Lil Wayne took the celebration to Boulevard3 in Hollywood, California.

It’s been a long road, but Weezy’s long-awaited ninth solo LP was released digitally at midnight on Sunday and will physically be in stores on Monday. Tunechi wasn’t the only one in party mode as members of his YMCMB fam joined him to toast to C4. Drake, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross, DJ Khaled, Cory Gunz, Mack Maine, Tyga and Lil Twist were all in attendance just to name a few. Throughout the night the DJ played hits from Weezy’s catalogs and partygoers talked about Tha Carter IV all night with MTV News.

"Wayne dropped his album at the VMAs like a boss, that's something an artist can only dream of,” Ross said.

DJ Khaled was both proud and overjoyed. "I'm happy for him and I'm happy for all his success, and I'm a fan as well," the Miami DJ/producer said while seated between Rozay and Drake.

When it came time to talk the best C4 tracks, there were a bunch of favorites. "My favorite song probably is 'Blunt Blowin',' 'Abortion' [or] ['It's Good,'] " YMCMB rapper Tyga said.

Young Money president Mack Maine liked some of Tha Carter IV’s more subdued tracks. "I'm a lady's man so I like 'She Will' and I like 'So Special' a lot," he said.
