When Lil Wayne finally prepared to release Tha Carter IV, everyone knew it was going to top the charts. The question was by how much and if Wayne could top Tha Carter III. Along the way, a number of fireworks have been sparked.

Days before the release of Tha Carter IV, "It's Good" leaked, featuring Jadakiss and Drake. Lil Wayne rapped the final verse of the song. In his verse, Lil Wayne dissed Jay-Z, responding to his "baby money" diss on "H.A.M."

Hip hop fans have been wondering what would happen next between Lil Wayne and Jay-Z. More than likely, Jay-Z will not entertain the feud. However, Lil Wayne has managed to beat Jay-Z in the numbers game. In only four days of being available, Tha Carter IV has already sold 300,000 copies, becoming an iTunes record.

With this, the projections of the album have boosted again, now the album is projected to sell nearly 1 million copies in its first week. Previously, the iTunes record was held by Jay-Z and Kanye West with their new album, Watch the Throne. In a mere two weeks, their album has been topped by Lil Wayne's latest opus.
