After releasing the biggest-selling album of 2008 with Tha Carter III, Lil’ Wayne‘s personal misdemeanors have often taken centre stage of late. However, May 16 sees the long-awaited release of Tha Carter IV, and he’s no doubt hoping to match the success of three years past.

Last.fm Trends is looking into the rapper’s scrobbles over his prolific 12-year career to see what changes May should bring for his Last.fm listeners.

His top tracks for the past six months are a mix of releases from 2005 to 2010, but notably last album I Am Not A Human Being doesn’t make an appearance in the whole top ten. Released whilst the artist was imprisoned, it doesn’t seem to have produced any fan favorites – but a new ‘sequel’ to Tha Carter III seems more likely to fire them up.

Biggest track Lollipop currently has 2,219,365 scrobbles from 708,472 listeners, so his new tracks have a long way to go to come out on top of nine studio albums and eight mixtapes.
