Tha Carter III reaches one billion on Spotify

Millions of Lil Wayne fans, including me agree that Tha Carter III is the best project of the Carter series. In fact, Wayne was the hottest rapper on the planet at the time of its release. He was on an unprecedented feature run, and had dropped some of the biggest rap songs and verses of the decade at that point.

Tha Carter III went on to sell a million copies in the first week, solidifying Weezy’s reputation as one of the greatest rappers to ever helm the rap game Now, 13 years later, the album is still waxing strong.

According to Chart Data, the 16-track album recently surpassed the one billion streams mark on Spotify.

Lil Wayne celebrated the 13-year anniversary of the album on Instagram earlier this month. “Happy 13th to the project that really showed me my fans/supporters have love for me,” Wayne captioned a photo of the album’s cover art. “We did ‘Amilli’ the first week in a time where sales were down because of piracy/bootlegging!!! For that I’ll forever be grateful!” Media Rants also joined in to celebrate the anniversary.

Alongside “Lollipop,” Tha Carter III also featured bangers such as “Got Money,” “Mrs. Officer,” “Mr. Carter,” “Comfortable,” “A Milli,” “Shoot Me Down,” and “Let The Beat Build.” There is no bad song on the album, and it remains Weezy’s most critically acclaimed work till date.
