Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne is reportedly fuming over his Tha Carter V album’s premature release. New reports claim pharmaceutical celebrity Martin Shkreli is responsible for the leak.

According to reports, Team Weezy is looking into Shkreli’s involvement in a Carter V song reaching the masses.

A source close to Wayne says this is the real McCoy. We suspect Shkreli’s about to have even more legal trouble — in the form of a lawsuit from Cash Money or Universal Music Group. A source close to Wayne tells TMZ … his camp is doing an internal investigation to find out if someone passed the song to Shkreli. As we’ve reported, Birdman says he doesn’t have a copy of “Tha Carter V” … and insists it’s been in Weezy’s hands all along. (TMZ)

A few hours ago, Martin released a video clip announcing he had the Carter V album.

He proceeded to tease the release and waited for viewers to guess the album he might have been speaking about. After many guessed Lil B, 2Pac, Lil Wayne, and more, he confessed that he had acquired Carter V. “Y’all get to hear it because I’m feeling good today. It’s Christmas,” he said before declaring, “This is a track from an album called The Carter V by Lil Wayne,” and hitting play on the first song. (Complex)

Back in October, Young Money’s Drake showed his support for Wayne’s delayed LP.


Earlier the same month, Wayne likened his YMCMB woes to the Miami Heat’s Chris Bosh.

“It’s interesting. It’s interesting. It’s a perfect example of, that you aren’t bigger than the game. It’s a perfect example of that. You’re not bigger than the team and once you’re off the team, it’s not, we don’t care. Once you’re off the team, we don’t care. We’re still a team and we have to conduct ourselves as such, and we have to make the most for us. Reason being, I’m going through the same situation myself. So I know how it is. Everything I’ve done for them, they wouldn’t be them without me and, but I’m off the team so it’s, ‘screw him as long as we can, make sure we gonna screw him as much as we can, and when we can’t no more we’ll see what happens. That’s what it looks like they’re doing to Bosh” (“His & Hers”)
