Lil Wayne finally let go Tha Carter V to the masses and as we’ve highlighted, it has enjoyed positive reviews despite the length of time it took to drop. One of the early fan favorites, the Swizz Beatz-produced “Uproar” made use of a popular 2001 Hip-Hop hit that has sparked the #UproarChallenge craze.
