Leaks are always unfortunate and there is no telling if Weezy wanted to use these at some point or they were going to stay vaulted forever. Regardless, we think some of these songs would have been incredible additions to the real album and sound just as good as the official cuts
The tale of Tha Carter V has been very much archived. The collection was being chipped away at from 2011 obviously didn’t wind up turning out until about a year back because of the open debate with Birdman and Cash Money. This continued for such a long time that we discovered that the way that the collection even turned out was the genuine success in our piece a year back.
When the issues finally got sorted, Wayne and his crew were left with a bunch of music, some of it five years old. They ended up using music that was mostly from the original version of the album but re-recorded it and mixed it in with newer songs to keep it fresh. Of course, Wayne has always had a bunch of music left over from his crazy recording sessions and has suffered from leaks in the past, so fans hoped they’d get to hear all of the C5 sessions at some point or another, somehow, sort of like we did with C3.
