Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” Album Goes Platinum

Lil Wayne released his long-awaited album Tha Carter V in September and now it’s achieved RIAA platinum status.

The project contains 23 tracks with guest appearances by Nicki Minaj, Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, XXXTENTACION, Sosamann, Snoop Dogg, Ashanti, Nivea, Mack Maine, and Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter. The Young Money rapper dropped three bonus songs earlier this month “Hasta La Vista,” “In This House” featuring Gucci Mane, and “What About Me” featuring Post Malone.

Tha Carter V debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 list by selling an astonishing 480,000 copies out of the gate. Weezy has since been pushing the LP by appearing on Monday Night Football, delivering a video for “Uproar,” performing on Saturday Night Live, and more.

Congratulations to Lil Wayne on going platinum in less than two months.
