Album reviews: Lil Wayne, Brockhampton, Mandy Barnett

V can’t maintain that level of inspiration, but the album, which begins with a spoken intro from Wayne’s mother, Jacida Carter (“I can’t wait till your album come out, because everybody asking about it”), is enlivened along the way by guest spots from Snoop Dogg and Ashanti, who sings on a track called “Start This S- Off Right” that, counterintuitively, is the 18th track on the album. V has begun to feel like a slog by that point, but it’s worth sticking around — or skipping ahead — to the end. The final track, “Let It All Work Out,” which features British pianist and singer Sampha, turns out to be a deeply personal, moving song in which Wayne admits that the incident in which he shot himself in the chest when he was 12 was not an accident, but a suicide attempt. — Dan DeLuca
