An old version of Tha Carter V has surfaced online. It is twenty tracks long, with most of them never being released before, like the collaboration ‘No Brainer’ with Flow and Big Sean collab ‘Mute’. Other songs include ‘Life Of Mr. Carter’, ‘Just Chill’ with Justin Bieber and ‘Scottie Pippen’. There are also tracks on it that we heard on the official album but the original versions. For example, ‘Mona Lisa’ with Kendrick Lamar is six minutes long with new lyrics, a slightly different instrumental and Auto-Tune. ‘Open Safe’ is on there too.
Leaks are always unfortunate and there is no telling if Weezy wanted to use these at some point or they were going to stay vaulted forever. Regardless, we think some of these songs would have been incredible additions to the real album and sound just as good as the official cuts.
