A week before his 38th birthday, rapper Lil Wayne received an amethyst McLaren as a birthday gift from his Young Money Entertainment partner Mack Maine.

On Monday, Tunechi took to Instagram to share a video clip of his new whip worth over $200,000, writing,” I [love you] brudda! I need that F1 driver outfit [Antonio Brown] had on!!”

The expensive car also came with a special announcement from Young Money Entertainment about the deluxe version of Wayne’s Tha Carter 5.

“OG CV DROPPING 9/25,” read the caption accompaning a video capturing Mack dropping off the car to Lil Wayne.

“Y’all always wanted that OG CV. I’m gonna make sure y’all can bump it too,” Mack said in the video. “Tha Cater V deluxe, OG Carter V baby. This Friday, you heard me? We in the building. Happy birthday Tunechi. The GOAT.” 

For those who don’t know, Tha Carter V experienced a ton of delays due to Weezy’s ongoing legal battle with Birdman and contractual disputes with Cash Money Records before the album was successfully released a day after his 36th birthday in 2018. 

Wayne delivered on the 23-track album that featured Mack, Young Money mate Nicki Minaj, Wayne’s daughter Reginae CarterKendrick LamarSnoop DoggAshanti, Travis Scott and more. The album debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200, with 22 songs charting on Billboard’s Hot 100 chart. 

Lil Wayne’s birthday is Sunday, September 27th.
