• "Mona Lisa" is a song from "tha Carter V", the 12th studio album by American rapper Lil Wayne written and performed with Kendrick Lamar.
• "Tha Carter V" album was delayed for six years due to financial disputes. Some songs were written years back including "Mona Lisa". Esquire.com wrote "Among these gems from the 2010s is the mythical Lil Wayne song with Kendrick Lamar."
• Esquire.com by Matt Miller (sept. 28, 2018) said "The song has a history as bizarre as the album itself. It first came to light in 2017 when Pharmabro Martin Shkreli leaked the song during a live stream. How the hell did wannabe super villain Martin Shkreli come into possession of this long awaited album? Well, that's also a weird story.
“Martin told me that Lil Wayne sold his Bugatti Veyron to some guy," The Daily Caller’s Alex Pfeiffer told Pigeons and Planes in 2017. "The guy then discovered CDs and assorted personal belongings of Wayne in the car. [The guy] called Wayne and asked if he wanted them back and Wayne said 'no.' One of these CDs turned out to be Tha Carter V and he sold it to Shkreli.”
Sure enough, the song "Mona Lisa" has appeared on the final cut of "Tha Carter V." And the song introduces some of Wayne and Lamar's most vivid storytelling—a story about a woman who sets up men to get robbed by her boyfriend. The song was likely recorded sometime before 2016, given a reference to Kobe Bryant. Fans on Twitter have already labeled Lamar's verse the best on the album, in which he deploys a rare rapid-fire flow. It's a dizzying 5-minute long story, that's well worth the six-year wait."
• Jon Sorentino Caramanica from The New York Times said,"...Mona Lisa is a piece of storytelling noir in which Wayne goes head-to-head with Kendrick Lamar, and does not come out lacking. It’s not that C5 is too little, too late; more that the baton between the generations passed some time ago."
