Lil Wayne Explains Why Drake Wasn’t Featured ‘Tha Carter V’

Wednesday evening, Lil Wayne invited Elliot Wilson to his hometown of New Orleans for a special edition of the CRWN interview series on TIDAL. During the conversation, Wayne spoke on the long-awaited release of Tha Carter V, which is set to debut no. 1 next on the charts.

“He has a song that didn’t get cleared,” Wayne said when Elliott brought up Drake not being on there. “The clearances man. The clearances man. People be trippin’ when they find out who it is and when they find out what the song’s subject is about. They don’t represent the names of something like that,” Weezy added alluding to the artists not clearing the song because the song’s concept and “raunchy” lyrics. “You really don’t know why they say no.”

A few days ago, reports surfaced that Drizzy and Post Malone were supposed to be featured on the original version of “What About Me” which ended up with Sosamann on it, but who knows if that’s even true now.

Either way, you can thank “clearance issues” for the reason Drake is not on Carter V. However, I wonder what song they were sampling and trying to clear? Hopefully the song will one day see the light of day. Check out the explanation (below) and be sure to read our review of C5 right here.
