    Shoutout to Tha Carter 3. An album that Lil Wayne dropped at the height of his success.



    Anyone who was around will remember just how big Wayne was and how often these songs played on TV, on the radio or in the clubs. Good times.







    Lets not forget about the OG version.



    Peak Wayne. Pure fire.

    I hadn't heard any of these besides the first one. Thanks for posting, bro.

    I actually prefer the original Carter 3 more than the one we got.

    In the OG version there was La La La which you posted, I'm Me (Top 5 Wayne song imo) and these amongst others.









    Wayne was untouchable

    You compile the best tracks from the OG version and replace the skippable ones on the final version and it could have been a freakin masterpiece.

    Can’t believe it’s been 13. Pretty insane to think he was only 25 at the time it dropped (likely 24 when recorded).

    That's pretty crazy. Wayne peaked so young. But he started out young too.

    That would make him 22 years old when Carter 2 dropped. Arguably his best or 2nd best album.
