Tha Carter II’s New Single (by J. Tinsley)

Posted by T. Adeyemi on January 26, 2010

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Over four years since the album hit stores, the next single from Tha Carter II now has a visual. Travel with the Young Money front man as he travels through the streets of Miami with fast cars, hot sun, 50 Cent’s book and of course, money on the mental. While the single talk isn’t necessarily true, the free world is afforded another look inside the vault that is Weezy’s never-ending catalog. The hard hitting money anthem has always been a favorite of fans for years, so with Rebirth hitting shelves next week, someone obviously agrees with the adage of saturation of the market. Ironically, Wayne is one of the few artists who can do this and not receive negative repercussions.

On the topic of C2, however, one record which deserved a video was “Receipt.” The soulful sample coupled with Wayne’s honest lyrics would have made for a superb last single from the album. With the release of the “Shooter” video alongside Robin Thicke, however, two singles of the same tempo likely wouldn’t have fit in the marketing plan.

Curren$y makes an appearance as well conjuring memories of YM’s infant stages.

Side note: This internet game is ruthless. Ask DJ Clue.
