The long-awaited release put a cherry on top of Weezy’s 36th birthday and ended a tumultuous chapter in Weezy’s story.

With guest vocals from Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Sossaman, Ashanti, Mack Maine, Nivea, Wayne’s daughter Reginae Carter, Snoop Dogg, Nicki Minaj and the late XXXTENTACION, the 23-track album — understandably — lit Twitter on fire.
Post Malone, who was reportedly added to the project last minute, was noticeably absent.
Some are calling for Tha Carter V‘s release date to be a national holiday while others simply can’t believe it’s here.
Check out the initial reactions to the album below.
