Lil Wayne has revealed new song 'Believe Me', the first song to be taken from his new album, 'Tha Carter V.'

The song features Drake and is fans first taste of what could be Lil Wayne's final album. Speaking earlier this year, the Young Money rapper said only a very lucrative offer would lure him out of retirement.

About his retirement, Lil Wayne said: "I personally plan on this being my final solo album, yes and it's definitely the final 'Carter' album. It's the final 'Carter' album. It's stopping at five."

Asked what would lure him out of solo retirement, the rapper said: "25 to 35 million (US dollars) would get me to do another solo album after this."

It was reported last month (March 4) that Lil Wayne reportedly owes over $12m (£7.1m) in taxes. The US rapper reportedly owes the huge sum after failing to pay taxes for 2011 and 2012. It is suggested that Wayne owes $5.8m (£3.4m) for 2011 and $6.3m (£3.7) for 2012.

Lil Wayne's last album in the 'Carter' series, 'Tha Carter IV', was released in 2011 and charted at Number Eight in the Official UK Albums Chart.
