Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V is nearing its release date, and Drake--who broke the news of his label mate's next record back in February--is the first guest to hop on the mic with Weezy.

"Believe Me" dropped early this morning (or late last night, depending on which time zone you're in), but either way, its solid rhymes make this slow-burner of a track a great thing to wake up to.

It's likely that Drake won't be the only big name lending his talents to Tha Carter Va fake track list made the rounds shortly after Drake let the cat out of the bag, name-dropping everyone from Kanye to Young Thug. If Lil Wayne truly plans to retire after this record, we wouldn't be surprised if he came out swinging with his strongest set of collaborators yet. 

We'll see for ourselves on May 5, but in the meantime, run "Believe Me" on repeat.
