Lil Wayne‘s long-awaited Tha Carter V has finally arrived. The album dropped at midnight September 27, to coincide with Weezy’s 36th birthday.

The rollout of this album has been somewhat of a saga. Wayne first announced Tha Carter V all the way back in 2012, before the release was delayed for years due to a now-settled label dispute with Cash Money label head Birdman.

Tha Carter V includes features from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj, Ashanti, and the late XXXTentacion. Metro Boomin, Swizz Beatz, Mannie Fresh are among the production credits.

To celebrate the release of the album, Lil Wayne has worked with 14 different brands for limited-edition merch drops. Get more info on that here.
