On May 3, Lil Wayne released the steady-moving “Believe Me,” featuring Drake. The five-and-a-half minute track is produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz, according to MTV. Check out the song below.

"Tha Carter V" is set for a May release, and will likely be Lil Wayne’s last solo album. In an interview for MTV, the hip-hop artist said a whole lot of cash might help him reconsider his solo retirement. "25 to 35 million would get me to do another solo album after this," he said.
