While Lil Wayne has enjoyed a lengthy and celebrated career, his Carter series have often been at the forefront of his critical acclaim, at least insofar as studio albums are concerned. Tha Carter is an amalgamation of everything that makes Wayne such a well rounded emcee, and everything from the flow to the beat selection is peak Weezy. With Mannie Fresh handling the bulk of the production, the album also retains a sense of cohesiveness despite its considerable length. 

The first installment of Tha Carter dropped on June 29th, thirteen years ago, and still bumps to this day. It wasn't easy to narrow down a list of five, and many dope cuts were left out. Without further ado, here are five of the album's best offerings. And please, feel free to share your personal favorites in the comment section below.
