Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne‘s Tha Carter V is sort of a big deal. The hip-hop superstar’s long-awaited new LP release is already doing serious numbers on Apple Music and iTunes.
According to reports, Weezy F. Baby’s latest solo offering has a strong grip on both digital platforms.
Happy birthday, Lil Wayne. For a gift, your fans have made you #1 at iTunes and Apple Music and pushed 13 of your new tunes into the Top 15 at the streaming service. Now blow out those 36 candles. Weezy’s Tha Carter V (Young Money) is ruling the roost this flipover Friday with “Mona Lisa” f/Kendrick Lamar rising into the Top 10 at iTunes and “Don’t Cry” f/ XXXTentacion and “Let it Fly” f/Travis Scott sitting at #1 and #2 on Apple Music.

Last night, Chicago’s Chance The Rapper geeked out over Wayne’s new album.
“I’m about to have my own private listening session to C5. I just gotta say, man, thank-you Lil Wayne ’cause beyond the fact you got me my first ever number one record, first ever Grammy, you taught me so much sh*t from far away. I just want to say thank-you for dropping that sh*t. Thank-you for reclaiming your sh*t and man, I’m ready to hear that sh*t yo. I had to kick everyone out the d*mn studio so I could really take this sh*t in.”
Throughout the past 24 hours, hip-hop heavyweights have celebrated Wayne’s new album release.
