The internet lost its mind twice in 24 hours over Lil Wayne. And Weezy didn’t even have to do anything. The Hollygrove and hip-hop legend’s long-awaited fifth installment in Tha Carter series was expected to drop at midnight and fans are more than a little heated that an album they’ve waited over seven years for didn’t arrive.

Spongebob, like Tha Carter albums that did actually drop, is eternal.
Even Wayne’s daughter Reginae caught heat for building hype for an album that didn’t appear.

There might be something deeper going on…

It’s not Tha Carter V but Brockhampton did drop Iridescence today, an incredibly dense and weird album that they’ve previously compared to Tha Carter II. When a fan asked de facto leader of the hip-hop boy band Kevin Abstract for a track as intense as Wayne’s “Fireman,” Kevin replied that he should look to the first track on the album. Fittingly, that track’s name is “New Orleans.”
