Some months ago, Lil Wayne confessed that his forthcoming album, Tha Carter V, would likely be his last. Now we have the first single off that album, "Believe Me," which has Drake take a break from lint-rolling to contribute a few verses.
Drake seems to have influenced the track's production, as well—the muted, laid-back, and ambient feel echoes the Canadian rapper's work on Take Care and Thank Me Later. We'll see if that's a theme through the entirety of Tha Carter V; the album has no release date, but it'll probably hit stores sometime this summer.
