A reminder of what to expect from Lil Wayne's long-awaited swansong.

A new report has suggested that Lil Wayne is in sole possession of Tha Carter V masters, which he is withholding from his label, Cash Money, until they pay him what he is owed. It's the latest development in an ongoing battle between Wayne and Cash Money founder, Birdman, who Weezy has accused of holding out on payments (he's also far from the first to make such a claim). Above all else, it's got us thinking about what Tha Carter V actually SOUNDS like all over again. Originally scheduled to be released in 2014, it's possible the LP has changed dramatically in the two years since, or it's been the same files in Wayne's hard drive all along.

Judging by the many interviews in which he spoke of how hard he worked on the album, which was said to be complete in the summer of 2014, we're guessing the material is too great to sweep under the rug -- so we've decided to look back at what we were expecting from the album -- back when it seemed like it actually had a chance of coming out. Click through for a quick refresher on the album that's caused all this controversy. It still seems like it will be worth the wait.
